I don`t run Viper but run a Tekin RS Pro which has no fan and have ran from 13.5 down to 6.5 and never had temp problems .

Lol, the viper has more problems than overheating. Like shutting off randomly for no reason. It's a well known issue around where I race, and most ppl have moved on to more reliable ESCs.

At our track it is tekin, orion, and novak. Some have LRP's but I don't know how much better they are than vipers... So many problems.

Check that its not spinning on the lipo or the plastic battery brace, dismantle the joints clean and re lube. I find its something that should be done regularly.

I just got the wax to try out

Heat shrink is your friend. I use a syringe that I got from Avid to shoot grease down into the cup, then heat shrink over it (on the sc truck). Have the djoints on the buggy and they are well worth it.

When mine need replacing Ill defo get the Djoints. Nice thought Jonny but those that do it make sure you check it every now and then for dirt etc. Im sure you have a bit more of a cleaning routine than some others

Boy, I'd like to PM Nick on Oople about his DEX410 pistons, but still waiting for the oople admins to send me an account activation email so I can post/pm. Emails must be taking the slow boat across the Pond. Someone on oople prod the admins for me

I got my 410 all put together today. Shoehorning the GTB in there was an interesting chore (need to buy a smaller ESC, but I had this sitting around). Anyways, I am going to run a 10.5 motor for now, until I get use to the speed (plus it was the only thing I had sitting around) of a 4wd buggy. Any thoughts on what I should gear it at? From searching this thread I've seen anywhere from a 22 all the way up to a 27. I should be ok starting at 24-25 shouldn't I? It's a pretty big track, with a 120'ish straightaway.

Yeah, every 2-3 racedays I cut the heat shrink off and clean them out, then regrease. Cush only runs the buggy indoor so it never really gets too dirty. The sc needs it every 1-2, depending on where we run at and how dirty the track is. Our local outdoor track isn't too bad though.

Been using them for a while. Run much much cooler than the standard shafts (high grip astro/carpet, 5.5turn motor with turbo). Cooler running means you can use graphite grease or similar and it doesnt melt like with the standard shafts
