I can now say I have now fear about this car. I did not have a single issue other than the stock pistons being way off.

I was very torn between this car and the Xray XB4, and after seeing two at the track side bey side with the 410, I feel very comfortable with my choice. I didn't see anything special about the XB4, it didn't have any noticable less play or slop in the a arms or hubs, it didn't look any beefier in design. The Dex was definatly louder though, kinda reminds me how a serpent e buggy sounds. I can say that the 410 feels noticeably more stable and consistent than my b44.1 and oddly enough my electronics seemed to run cooler with approximately the same setup.... The 410 reacts very well to setup changes as well. I added another degree of anti squat and toe in in the rear and BINGO! Just need to dial in the rear pistons.
Did you put grease on your ring gears in the diffs? My sons both were loud and they never greased the gears. After greasing they were much quieter.

Yes I did, and I also set my gear mesh perfectly with a new pinion. The car is not excessively loud, just louder than the XB4 at the track, and my b44.1, which i just sold.

Good buggy guys. They changed my local track and I had zero practice. I showed up 15 minutes late and barely made my first race. Last race day I only had a few laps of practice before they setup the mains. I have not driven this car much at all but I like the way it handles. It is durable as all get out I was cart wheeling all night lol.

RW spurs are a little quieter. Even using the djoints frees up the driver train a little and again adds to the noise a bit.
A little dry wax helps too

Have a couple of questions. I keep breaking rear arms (mild crashes). I notice there's quite a bit of play (inner hinge pin). So I added 1 1mm plastic shim to tighten up the slop. Will this help or make it worse (haven't tried it yet)? Second, I'm running on carpet and the car traction rolls easily. What suggestions can I do to prevent this? I already trimmed down steering travel The car has a stock set up dex410v3. Thanks

I think less play would make them break easier. Traction rolling, check droop.

I am running the 2010 model on carpet (small bore shocks) i had a traction roll problem, to fix it i went next rate up springs and added more negative camber in the rear (2 degrees total)!
no more traction rolling now! Just try the camber first you will be suprised at how much difference it makes!
it will also depend on what tires you run, fronts i have aka rebars and rears i have proline holeshots! Running pins on the front made it way to aggressive for me!

Hi guys need some help. I just got my 2nd V3, and this is my 3rd time building 410's. I got my first V3 during its initial release, one of the first batch I think.

One of the changes TD have done for the V3 is Countersunk Protection: The famous narrow-waisted DEX410 aluminum chassis has received some attention with the v3 car. All of the holes on the bottom of the chassis are now more deeply countersunk. This means the head of each screw sits flush with the bottom of the chassis plate for a smoother ride over bumps and ruts in the track. (got this on amain, I checked TD's website and can't find this anymore).

I am still building my latest V3, my problem is I noticed that the chassis included in the kit is not "more deeply countersunk"! Its the same as the V1 and 2010 spec wherein the screws are just level/flat to the chassis!

Does any of you guys experienced the same problem in your V3's, I am not updated to any running changes they did in the latest batch of V3. So its either I got the wrong chassis or its the current running changes they did to the V3 where in they revert back to the old "non-deeply countersunk" chassis?

Thank guys in advance!

Just measured mine the screws range from 0.15-0.2mm deeper than the chassis. Don't know what the previous version were like. It's a newer kit

I run 10/10 basically with really good rotation on all power uses. If the track I would run 7/7. But that is rare. Ask Steve Charles about my car from Sunday, it worked well.

No, it's probably the 6.5 that helps with the rotation.....

Default New to this DEX410 forum... First ever buggy owner

Hey all. Adding a third Durango to my stable. DESC210R, DESC410 V2 and a new DEX410 V3.

What are your thoughts on this setup before I place an order, mainly need help on what Savox servo, Tekin Gen 2 motor to get?

I run a small-medium sized indoor clay track. 60ft straight mainly technical layout. Grip is medium. Overall smooth but lots of jumps.

DEX410 V3
Tekin RS Pro
Tekin Gen 2 Motor 7.5 or 6.5?
Savox Servo 1256TG High Torque

Thanks for the replies as this is my first BUGGY ever : ) I really want to do it right from the start.

I would honestly go with a 6.5. I am running the 7.5 and have found that I have to boost it. You would not believe how much of a difference it can make on the straight aways. Not so much on the infield sections. You can always tame it down with the current limiter if needed.

I am running an SC-1251MG low profile from my touring cars. It has plenty of torque and speed for the steering.
