I'm using a 20p and 87s with a 6.5 and temps are 140-150ish on motor after a 7min heats/main and 110 on esc with fan.

the diffs are fine and I have just replaced all the bearings in the vehicle to avid. when I just run the spur and pinion without the center driveshafts connected it sounds fine.

Any help would be great.
just watched the vid and heard it. remove motor then rotate both rear wheel same direction by handand feel for any friction? have you tried electrics on another shaft car? maybe motor or even esc is having issues? best of luck trying to solve it and nice ride

Ill try to answer this only because I have been reading through this thread. I am going to be getting a 410v3, so I have no personal experience yet. The battery tray dimensions are not the same on all three. I believe the v1's have slightly less height and cannot accept some of the taller lipo packs. You can however upgrade it to accept packs up to 25.1 mm. Also, i think a lot of people have upgraded the v1 diff hoops to aluminum. This is especially true for the rear. I guess the rear diff can twist etc and become faulty. That's sort of what I have picked up so far reading the thread. Also, you may want to upgrade to the 14mm hexes that TD uses now on the V3.

Check out tresrey USA too. They make a lot of nice upgrades for the 410.

the Durango alu rear diff hoop allows the battery saddle height to be adjusted - it has 2x slots that allows 2 different heights. you might be able to solve any battery height issue by just getting this alu diff hoop. i'm not sure if the Tresrey diff hoop has this adjustment (i don't have it with me to compare)?

i've got a v1 car and this + servo horn are the only things i've changed.

I found that on the V3 the Tresrey hoop is still too low and had to be raised by 1mm to get the same height as the original plastic hoop.

Default Indoor Carpet Track

Hi Guys,

Soon our local hobby shop is going to built indoor carpet track, any idea which compound and tire tread are suitable for it?

In the UK we usually use Schumacher mini pin in yellow compound on the front and rear when running on carpet usually Prima Felt. To calm things down you have to cut the outer row off on the rear and inner and outer on the front. With mini pin tyres it can take a run to scrub the tyres in before they provide their full grip.

As the others have said, yellow mini pins.

If you find your are cutting a lot of rows of the front to lose steering, you can use 2wd front tyres and cut less rows off. I find the sidewall is stiffer as its been stretched, so you lose more steering (410 has never lacked steering !)
