It seems the standard bore shocks are the way to go for the 410.

im haveing an issue with the wheel hex pins snaping on the rear right wheel. i had it happen twice during practice 3 weeks ago, and twice racing this weekend. any idea what could be causing the pins to snap? im using the standard plastic 14mm wheel hex and it doesnt seem to be binding, but i put a shim behind the hex to make sure and it it still snaped in the main.

Yeah we're all testing some new parts on this car right now. I ran the plastic towers at the Cactus. They have a few more holes for the shock mounts,etc.

The smaller shocks weren't bad to begin with guys. Jorn won the Reedy with them

I hate to say it but it's the plastic hexes causing it. They're fine for most tracks but if your track has good bite you should get the aluminum ones. There are some roll pins that can also last longer but they too can break over time. IT's the smallest play that over time will bend the pin, fatigue it and break.

The plastic hexes are fine in front though.

Absolutely loving my V3, no complaints at all. Durable, fast, easy to control, and so far reliable.

However, I have a concern/question about the bigbores.

When they are assembled and mounted, I notice when fully extended, they have a bit of slop or play when I initially begin to compress them. All 4 do it, so:

I am guessing:

1) Its normal and nothing to be concerned about?
2) I did something wrong when assembling them/filling them with oil.
3) the pistons are loose on the shaft (which isnt true, I checked them. 2 guys at my local track asked this..)

Now, when I did assemble them, I initially bled them through the hole (with the screw), but though too much oil leaked out, so I refilled them 100%, and didnt bleed them at all the 2nd time, hoping that would fix the issue. It didnt.

The only thing I can think of is that perhaps there is a suction inside the shock (bladder related), that is causing the oil to vacuum up to the top, leaving some play upon initial compression.

thoughts?

(it isnt a huge deal, but been kind of bugging me so I thought I would ask if any of you experienced this..)
