Judging by your tire selection, are you running on carpet? If you are, forget the swaybars and start looking at the european setups on petitrc.com.

That looks good. What receiver are you running in there? I'm thinking or running a mico Futaba like this one.

Forgive me. So what is the point of this conversation?

High grip carpet?

I would be looking at taking 1 row off the inner and outer to start and go from there. Trimming the outside makes the most difference. If you find you are trimming up to 4 rows or more off the fronts, consider running 2wd fronts (run them on standard 4wd front). I find the 2wd front takes a lot of front end away (the 410 doesnt lack steering !)

Do you think you're R10 will be OK without the fan? I run an R10 160A on my 210 without a fan, but with draw of an 8.5 on a 4WD, my instinct would be to run the fan.

Let me know. I'm currently running an RS Pro in my 410 and may one day want to switch it around to my R10.

Thanks.

It should be ok, but you have to temp it. If it runs over 140f I would put a fan on it.

Default dex410

has anybody used the graphite chassis on a dex410 in mod (6.5t) on clay tracks?

is there too much flex when using graphite chassis with mod racing?

Just wanted to know if its worth while?

i guess it would be great in stock?

cheers

Yeah I think it will be OK if your running 6mins or less. I see a lot of people cutting their body for more air flow. I hope to have it together in the next few weeks so we will see

Hi guys i am running on a carpet track. It is carpet that has been laid over the top of the clay track so it still has the lumps and bumps of a clay track. I am trying to fine tune my shocks for better handling so i have 3 of questions that i hope someone can answer for me!

1. can you set rebound in an emulsion shock?

2. If you cant set rebound would a bladder shock be better for bumpy track?

3. Has anyone used the tsr bladders or any bladder in there shocks?

I run bladders in every I run. I know I'm going to get lit up for what I'm about to say but the idea of air mixed with shock oil goes against everything I know in full scale tuning. I don't care how consistent you build shocks you will never get them the same with air. Sure you can get it to rebound the same but who says your seal packs aren't sticking the same.

I use bladders and my shocks feel the same when I set the car down as when pick it back up after an 8 min main

I am running emulsion at the moment because i dont have bladders but i will be getting some! I want to run 50% rebound front and 25% rear is this possible with emulsion shocks because i just cant seem to get them to rebound, yet i see setup sheets with different rebound rates?

How do I get more bite in the rear? It seems when I try to power out of corners I just spin out. I also want to lock in the rear a bit more. It has a ton of steering I am running my dual rate at 120.
