You do need to run the aluminum side pods with it to prevent excessive chassis flex.
How do you know there is to much flex? Are driveshafts popping out, or stripping gears? Just wondering, Thanks........

When Tresrey Japan first tested the chassis without the aluminum side pods the chassis had to much flex and didn't give the proper handling characteristics the team drivers were looking for. The aluminum sides add the stiffness to the chassis but still allow a bit of flex which has proved to be a benefit on a lot of track conditions. Also too much flex could adversely affect the carbon layers and separate.

You still have the option of running either the plastic or carbon rear brace as well to change the flex characteristics.

Ive used the losi ones before in a pinch. They werent bad at all and leaks were minimal. I rebuild mine pretty often so i couldnt tell you how long they would last but they worked.

A bit stumped with this one, but before anyone asks, yes the wires are soldered on correctly. I found the ambition to fit the electronics into my 410 and with everything hooked up, the car only runs in reverse. I"ve changed the settings on my radio, programmed the esc, but nothing. Do I have to switch the a/b/c wires to get this thing to run in the right direction?

Sounds like you have the diff assemblies in wrong . The screw heads should be facing the chassis .

lol yes, that's the problem. Thanks for the quick reply.

I traded a b4.1 for this Durango, and the car was already built.

The most fun can be had when you put just one of the diffs in upside down, then drop it on the track and realized the front axles spin one way, and the rear in the opposite...you only make that mistake once
