A buddy suggested Mini pins but I tought that they might give too much traction.
Just to clarify: cut the outside two rows ( on front and rear?)

cut pins off just the front tires.


Mini pins are super aggressive.

Some tracks they are faster but some drivers have a hard time with how hard the car grabs. I do the same with a mini pin if you go that route but take a extra row out. I also clip the tips off the outside row of the rear tire also.

Hello All,

Quick question - Rr anti squat inserts. I am looking through Jörn Neumann set up sheets and can not find the anti squat reference anywhere. Am I missing something??

Secondly, I have built the car with upright 3 and with the 2 gold spacer shims as per the manual. There is a small amount of slop (Rr arm moves forward and backwards). To stop this slop I have placed a small black washer in the system. This has stopped the slop. Is this common??

Thanks

With the release of the machined spurs, you will find a gear chart here for the DEX410.

Please let me know about the pinions range!

Anybody setting these things up in loose conditions for a smooth driving style (more sedan like)?
Really would like to pull trigger on one, just can't help but feel the Kyosho maybe a better option for my driving style.

This is a DEX-410 running on an indoor track, which are quite loose (you can see the different color surface, with the darker color being very sandy type of soil), but it will give you a good picture on how the 410 handle loose track.

Hope that help.

Depending setup sheets dex410 or dex410v3
dex410 Rf+-2 / 0,2,4 (metal suspension holder)
dex410v3 Rf+-2/1,2,3 (inserts)

dex410 metal suspension holder #4 seems to be the same as dex410v3 #3 insert (low position), to be confirmed.

Suspension arms slop are common, don't add any washer here. The car was designed like this, and work better with this slop...

Instead of using front 4wd mini pins and cutting rows off, try using 2wd front mini pins. Saves a load of time and I find the car to be much less aggressive.

im looking to get the DEX410v3 or the B44.1...my question is do they make ball diff for the DEX410v3 front and rear? if so part number... i like the ball diff on the B44.1 but lack of big bore shocks.. still doing my homework on what to get between the two..

thanks

There is no official ball diff for the 410. I have seen someone adapt the B44 diffs though.

Its all good. If you get a chance to drive someone else's DEX, give it a try. Best way to 'feel out' a new ride before taking the plunge.
The geared diff gives a more direct feel, to me more like a 1/8 buggy. Fits some peoples driving style, others not so much.

If you decide to give a DEX a try, we'll all be hear to help

thanks a bunch yeah ill go for a test drive at my track..people there have both of them..

if i do get this buggy..
hows the diff leak on this buggy? seals up well and last ? what do you recommend for race ? im looking to put a 8.5 motor 9.5 or lower..

have a TT ofna that leaks front/center/rear thats why i dont want to do all that messy diff too..dont use it anymore just have a 22 buggy..but this buggy only has 2 oil diff to maintain so i think ill be good as long as it dont leak easy and will last for a long run..

also whats common thing that breaks? pretty durable buggy? i only use my buggy for indoor track only not a basher

thanks
