The rear toe block slightly alters the roll center and or anti squat. But it's not by much at all to be honest. Get close, you'll be fine as long as you can drive like Ryan

Just picked up my DEX410v3 today. Are the parts for the DEX410R compatible with the 410V3 kit?

I am running 5x1.3 tapered all the way around. 50wt front 40 wt rear. Real jumpy track. Gonna go to four hole or maybe even 2 hole and use lighter wt. oils. Car feels pretty good though as is.

Yes I've been playing with them. I'm running them 1.6x2 in front, 1.7x2 rears. Yes I'm drilling and plugging them. This setup gives a very plush setup with good pack. I'm going back out next week but currently running 450 cst front, 375 rear.

Default Help!

For the past year i have been running a B44.1 and had a great summer season of racing, but i wanted something different, something to outperform my AE. So last week i purchased a 410v3. I have used a few different setup i found on TD site but none of them are for Large/Medium grip indoor tracks. Every setup seems to feel the same, TONS of steering and no rear traction. Yank the trigger and the rear end will spin around with ease. great if i wanted to do donuts but not great for racing. I have tried a few Diff oil combinations, different piston/oil combination, different tires. All seem to have the same result. I really have high hopes for this car. The build, R&D, it seems to be the 4w that we all should have. But i have had 0 luck with getting it to stick. The 2w guys are getting faster times at my track. So.... if anyone has a good starting setup for my type of track i would appreciate the help. BTW, i am an aggressive driver.

Thanks for the help!

I'm in the same boat; loads of front traction and steering, but the rear just follows. Got to remember the car has a lot of weight up front, so you have to deal with that as well.

I prefer my cars to be as equal as possible front/rear, and I've been able to get a few things done to keep the rear end from breaking out. You can either try to dial out steering, or live with it and let the car slide. I've tried dialing already and didn't have any luck, so I've just been living with it and making sure I'm doing everything I can in the setup to have maximum rear traction.

-Make sure the slipper is doing it's job, and slipping the right amount.
-Pick a less agressive throttle curve in your speed control. I don't run any timing with my 7.5 either.
-Rear + side chassis weights.
-Plastic rear brace.
-I run 0 anti-squat with high roll center in the rear.
-I run 1 rear hubs

Also, don't forget, tires are 90% of the setup.

This car is very fast in the right hands, even without a good setup. Given all my time working on setup with this car, I still don't have it close to being where I want it, but it's much better than what I started with.

Everyone is having rear traction issues :-)
I have a different problem.
Using the rear chassis and side weights, and loosing rear traction entering the turn (off power) , but have enought rear traction exiting the turn while on power.
Thinking about removing some of the rear weights or lowering the front kickup or lengthening the rear upper arm.

Lowering the diffs from 10-5 to 7-3 helped a bit, but i really feel that that's not IT.

Got 80% of my build done. Love the engineering on this car, everything fits perfectly and shocks are super smooth. I'm using the box stock set up and will adjust from there. I run a medium size, clay track with medium to high traction. Can't wait to run this thing.

If you're losing rear traction while off power there are a few things to try:

Reduce drag brake if you have some set.
Stiffer front springs or stand up the front shocks(this will reduce weight transfer)
More Rear Droop


If you post your full setup I can help with more detail.
