They are used with the older pin style wheels instead of the newer hexes. They make nice wing washers also.

Default B44.1 or Durango 410?

I'm thinking about switching to the Durango buggy. The B44.1 is an ugly bastard and handles terribly. I noticed the durango has gear-diffs versus the b44 uses ball diffs. For Durango owners do you find that the gear diffs are less maintenance as the ball diffs in the b44 tend to become crunchy?

Also is the high dollar 410V3 worth the extra $ versus the "R"? Whats different?

Thank's ya'll

Gear diffs are way less work, as long as you set the mesh correctly, basically when you need to rebuild the B44 diff, I check mesh and touch up oil level.... Definitely worth the extra coin for the V3, BB shocks and many other hidden upgrades.

Default 21 degree hubs

Have some of these 21 degree hubs arrive. Will be trying in the next few days.
I expected the stock ones to be 19 degree, but after measuring them against the 21's the STD ones are 4 degrees less , must 17 degre.

I had a b44.1 for a few months and now i just bought myself a dex410 off a mate and what a difference it is to drive, it handles so much better than the ae and it's way more predictable, the r hasn't got any upgrades buy the time you buy all the necessary upgrades for it you might aswell of bought the 410v3, cause your going to spend at least another couple of hundred bucks for the all the upgrades you want

Is anyone running the Exotek wider hubs? If so what are you using wheel nuts? Just doesn't seem like enough threads for my confidence. Lmk, thanks.

if you do that and use a shorty pack, you should really be able to knock off 150~200g off the overall chassis weight.
good thinking mate i will look into it as well thanks for the tip

Could anyone tell me any issues with the original high spec 410 buggy?
Have an option to buy a NIB one and if I get a good deal might take it.

Would adding the new big bores pretty much make it as good as the new 410 V3?

Hello everyone!

Okay, so I use to be really into RC back when I was younger. I have been out of the hobby for almost a decade now, and am sort of rusty. I'm a poor college student, and have very slowly pieced together a dex410r v2 over the past year and a half. I came really close to selling it to go with something cheaper, but stuck it out, and I am now FINALLY finishing it up.

My last hurdle seems to be finding the right sized pinion. I'm running a Tekin RS and their matching motor, and due to the position of the connections on the motor and limited body space, I'm pretty sure that I can only mount the motor in one position. The problem I have, is that with the stock spur gear, the motor won't get close enough for and 18t pinion to mesh. What do you guys recommend I do? I was trying to save money and went with the basic RS over the PRO, so I need to be sure that it doesn't get too toasty under there. Won't be doing any serious racing, but will be at Unser and Mhor from time to tim. Should I get a larger pinion and spur? I'm lost haha...

What turn motor? What size spur do you have now. Most people I see using the rs over the pro overheat if motor is under a 10.5

No you can run them. Just get the gearing right and turn the current limiter down to 50. I would guess 23-24 pinion if you have a 87 spur
