They work well. The stock center CVDs can get pretty hot from a run. The d-joints don't get hot, so less drag and battery used. Up to you to decide if they are worth the price.

+1 there is less drag and a little less noise a worthy upgrade but only really if you need to replace your old ones or you have pockets full of money.
The old ones work with a bit of TLC and lube

Thanks guys! I still have the original CVDs from when I bought the car 3 seasons ago. They have some wear but are working just fine but might want to get some backups this year and might just invest in the D-Joints.

I would also get the machined ring gears, big improvement on smoothness. I run both in my car and find the car rolls a lot freer and a lot quieter !

Really? I remember when they came out there was some debate. I understood they were designed for the Short Course. So they mesh well with the pinion and do not chew it up? I like me some smooth and quiet . . .

Default new scte

Bought the kit for my son for xmas already have mt4 radio hitech servo and an mmp esc and castle 2400 kv motor. Just wondering if this is a good combo to run on this truck. Was kind of wanting to try a different esc motor combo maby with some more power this one is very powerful on 3s but in sct open here its open run what you bring I hear this truck runs better on 4s since its more like an 1/8th scale chassis. If im going to run 4s just wondering about a better combo also have a mamba monster and it flies but its in his 1/8th scale mugen mbx6 eco with the 2000kv motor. never had a problem with either esc or motor at all after a year other than the fans on them suck. But I would not mind trying somthing different I know the usual combos like tekin but are there any others worth buying is orion or novak any good dont know anyone at our track using this stuff.

They fit fine in the DEX410, have been running them since they first came out. I used to chip and damage the standard ones on a regular basis (carpet and astroturf track).

Hey Guys

So I managed to pick up a DEX410 for $150 AUD with Spares which I thought was a pretty good deal.

Im just wondering, what are the essential spares or hop up parts I should get for this?

Im guessing:

Front A Arms
Spare Spur Gears
Clutch Pads
Shock O Rings

Anything Else?

Any essential mods I should get?

Ill be running in 4WD Stock with a Trinity D3 17.5 motor, HW Xerun 2.1 60amp ESC and steering will be done via a SAVOX 1257TG.

Pretty much the same electrics as the 22SCT in my Sig.

Appreciate the help fellas!

If you've ever bent a front inner hinge pin on the front arms try this, dig up an old OFNA hex driver or similar hex wrench that you don't need. Using a dremel cut off disk cut to length of your stock pins.
These will be stronger by far as hardened tool steel will sheer before bending most likely saving your front aluminum pin support.
I do this now and my pins stay true, the one I pulled out I thought was good was slightly bent meaning fine camber and toe adjustments were not accurate.
I'm hoping Durango releases hardened hinge pins.

That is an awesome idea! I know Lunsford makes Ti hinge pins for this car but never had good luck with their hinge pins on 8th scale.
