So far I have no complaints about the car. I had a junk motor which went on me, but other than that the car is great. What issues have you had?

What are you bummed about and what's getting worse? I haven't heard of anything that would even remotely make me reconsider my purchase yet. I'm still waiting to drive mine too, as my ESC and 8.5 haven't come in yet. All of the small fitment difficulties should be expected with any RC kit. I haven't had to do anything extreme, or ot of the ordinary on my build.

So... i am considering the 410R as my new winter ride... how does it/or does it even compare to the B44? How do they work on a nice tight indoor clay track?

I am thinkin g about running a 10.5 in it.

Any upgrades needed right away?

ball cups and ball studs are super minor Trev but i know how ya feel if they make a kit u shouldnt have to use someone elses parts to make your car work as far as the outter hinger holder thats easy order the plastic its real cheap until the uluminum one is avaiable thats what im doing today ordering all my spares!! i wouldnt worry to much till u drive it and find out for yourself.. if it is all nightmares then u will sell it lol...hell when the mp9 came out i was hearing all kinds of nightmares but they turned out to be just typical with any kit!!

Understood, however I punted a slash in practice the other day pretty hard. I've also cased a jump pretty bad and hit the pipes pretty hard when getting used to it. So far, had no issues. The car has endured abuse that would have broken the XX4 and B44. I know because I've had both car. I think you will find it is a pretty good car. If all I have to do is replace the ball ends, I'd say that is pretty much good in my book. I haven't had one pop off yet though.

Cheers!

Yes, also the surface is normally watered, but has not been in over a week so it is hard packed and somewhat abrasive (rough on tires and cars).

I thought for sure it had broken a couple of times now (just knowing the usual fragility associated with 4wd 1/10th scale), but so far has been fine.

Have fun!

All of you guys running the R, did you just run the servo wire under the servo saver? Any worry of the knurled part wearing away the insulation? The alloy chassis sides allow more room to tuck the wire out of the way than the molded ones do.

That seems to be the norm. No problems yet.......

Do you race at Mike's in Dallas? That's the closest track for me living in Abilene. I made it out a couple times last year but haven't raced since december. Hope to make it out every other weekend or so when I get the car up and running.

Man, I debated that one for a long time with the same concern. Settled on running under then servo saver and so far, so good. I really wished Durango would have recommended how to wire it in the manual like Kyosho does. Wiring this thing was a b*tch but I kind of enjoyed the challenge.
