Well, its been awhile since I got the kit, but finally got the elctronics installed and took it outside on the pavement for a test run. I was very impressed and am looking forward to getting it on the track. It seemed relatively quiet compared to what I was expecting from reading the forums.

However..... One area of concern is that within 2 minutes, the front ballcup came unscrewed to the bolt that holds it to the steering hub (wheel side).. (Luckily I found the gold washer that fell off) so I loctited it down really well.

Round2, same thing happend on the other side within 2 minutes. Unfortuantely I lost the washer this time.

Now is this just a matter of loctiting the hell out of it, and using pliers on the ballcup to get a real secure screw down? (I was hesistant b/c I didnt want to scrape or break the ballcup initially. But bviously I will have to risk it going forward.)

Or is this something that someone has an aftermarket fix for?

(I did notice when building the kit it seemed like not the best way to secure a ballcup since they are made w/o any treads for a wrench to fit on... But I figured it wouldnt be an issue. Looks like I was wrong)

Any advice would be great.

Hey guys I just picked up a near new 2 run old DEX410R buggy. I was just wondering if there are any must have upgrades for it that I should order right away. Or if it's good to just throw some electronics in it and hit the track?

Any screw into metal should be done with locktite. In addition, the ball cup has a hole in it. The ball stud head uses an allen wrench to tighten through the ball cup itself.

Found it, I wasn't looking under v3, looking at jorn's setup, the color springs he was using makes me think he was using small bores, does anyone know if this is right or was he using different colored springs from standard with the big bores???

Jörn uses the small bore shocks, they are pretty darn good as well

Ok.

Does anyone know what TD# gives you the 0° hubs in the large outer bearing?

340008 - small bearing, no markings on the hubs

Also, are the front steering blocks different or are they all the same?

340071

If you get it, let me know if the 1 degree hub is also on the parts tree.
