Rear hubs would be a good addition to that list as well.

I reported about my broken bone and got an answer the next day. The support wanted my kit ID an address and will send a new part.

In my case I was running an X11 9.5t StockSpec in blinky mode and didn't have an accident. So I was very surprised about the broken bone...

Because the slipper was mentioned several times: Is the slipper setting described in the manual "unhealthy" for the drive train?

Good to hear they are replacing the part for you . As for the slipper , the setting per build should be taken as a starting point only . Always adjust your slipper to track conditions . Having a to tight setting puts strain on the drivetrain , especially if running mod motors .

Thats great news and customer service. Never had any issues with Slipper. I usually run it backed off about 1/2 to 1 turn from stock.

I don't think it's the slipper, I have been building and driving DEX410's for a long time now, and in my opinion, the factory slipper is spot on. I am running a 6.5 Tekin redline with all kinds of power. No issues with breaking axles or pins sliding out of dog bones.

Just ordered my first 1/10 buggy!! DEX410 V3
I dont know much abouth this class but I have an ebuggy and sct so the basic knowledge is there.
Already read and downloaded a few set ups from lutz. So, a few questions to get me started:
1. Tires for large outdoor dusty track and a set up or suggestions
2. Pinion, I understand is a 48p but dont know which pinions should I buy. I'll be using a tekin rs pro 6.5 (i wish this was a good choice on my part) so I like to keep a few to start testing.

Many thanks!!

I've done both. If the track is smooth less droop makes the car react faster. On a really bumpy track more droop will help in the rough sections.

Randy,
when you ran it without the droop screws, did you have any issues with the axles working at a steeper angle?

For gearing a 6.5, 20-22 seems to be the range most fall into. If you're running Tekin stuff be sure to check out their website for esc setup info. With Randy and Lutz running the car there should be good places to start on there.

For tires I would ask around at your local track and see what guys are running. Our large outdoor track varies from Ifmar Studs to Ifmar Pins to even something like a Barcode depending on conditions and the groove.

I run them as my dog bones are right on the edge of the out drives and make a bit of noise, I have replaced the original screws that snap easy with just a D head screw, I think it sticks out only about 1-2 mm. Stops the noise and good piece of mind for me

agreed factory setting in manual is fine for the slipper

i have run on super grippy tracks to really loose slippery tracks and i never touch it , never had a drive line issue as all to be honest

Broke another cvd, left side again, same as before, 10-12 laps on this one..car is on the shelf atm..Disassembled the front diff to check for a smoking gun, I did find the set screw had backed out slightly, letting the yoke move slightly..Hope that's the issue, just seems like there should be a more obvious problem..
