i m about to buy a dex410 v3, as soon as it gets to my local shop,
and i m wondering which electric to be used.

some one told me to use 6.5 motor...
but i already have a gm 10.5 spare motor which i could use on this one,
furthermore when i went to the track (indoor-small) the first time they told me they all use 10.5 or 8.5 motors and that they usually race a free category in which every one can use every motor turns.

So my question is:

1)in case i use my gm 10.5 is it fine run it with sxx stock specv2?

2)do you suggest to use timing on esc?

3)and which pinion usually goes with 10.5??
(because i only know they use 18/19 pinion for 6.5)

4) servo department: is it fine a sanwa sdx-801??

[use of the car will be: bashing and some race at the track mentioned ^]

thank you very much, every help is really appreciated!!!
10.5 will be perfect for small-indoor track and a slower motor is great to get to learn how to drive the buggy. your sxx stock specv2 will be fine too.

Yes you can add some timing with that motor and should not have any heat issues.

Go for 21/22 Pinion.

As far as the Servo goes, as long as its fast (.11secs and below) and over 120oz of torque, I'd say its fine.

I outfitted it with my spare electronics which include:
  • LRP SXX Comp V2
  • LRP X12 5.5 w/ 13mm rotor
  • KO Propo Servo

It has all the acceleration my TEN-SCTE has, all the speed, yet turns on a dime. I have some learning to do that's for sure, but I am amazed with this buggy. Also, the durability was tested on accident as I went down our straight wide open and about 3/4 the way down, the front lifted, which caused it to cartwheel the rest of the way. I thought for sure I broke it but all was fine. Kudos!
Yeah, a 4WD short bus is a tank compared to this car/class. Glad you like it and always excited to hear positive comments!

10.5 is great for indoors, you can add timing if you ever need a higher wind.

chances are you'll never need another motor.

Default red threadlock

Does everyone use the red threadlock that came with the kit? I usually use the blue threadlock made by loctite. I have heard that the red threadlock may become too tight for disassembly.

TIA,
Ron

the red loctite included in durango and losi kits is more like blue loctite not the traditional red loctite. it is easy to get apart.

I have read about 95% of this thread and I am fairly sure that most people say throw the kit loctite in the bin it's rubbish

got mine 3/4 done done. its tighter than tight with a HW xtreme stock and full size spektrum rx. hopefully the esc will hold up on a small out door track
has a fan and vent holes in the body are straight over the esc.
couple of bad cell phone pics.

looking good Scotty , you will be right mate

yes there a very tight fit under the shell

yes to throwing the supplied lock tight away and using normal blue lock tight works much better

Always use red on the cvds though, you can still get them out by heating them up with a lighter or soldering iron tip. I've used the kit red with no issues, but I use some I bought from the auto parts store now.
