Got to spend all day at the track tuning my 410 and have it pretty close. i have the front shocks at 2 hole 1.7 42.5wt and the rear at 3 hole 1.75 42.5. My track is pretty bumpy and loose and found that the rear end is much ore stable and planted with the heavier oils.

I also found that this thing is an absolute tank. It is always hard trying to determine how much of what one reads on these forums is objective and not based in fanboyism. In my researching of this buggy, I got the opinion from one group of people that switched from this buggy to another that this was a fragile car(cough cough Xray guys), while most the people that still own the car say it is a durable. Well my friends, to say the former is in my experience a complete joke. Since getting this kit and after stocking up on some essential parts,and after spending all day running this exclusively as hard as I could all the while checking and tweaking my setup , this thing withstood some of the hardest crashes I have ever had with an rc and came out completely unscathed. And you guys remember when you first got this kit and got used to how much steering it has(like a TC car) With that said, Im gonna call BS to anyone who says this car is fragile.

Well if incase your esc setting are good, maybe check the drivetrain for anything binding. Remove the pinion and see how freely the car rolls.

You could try contacting them directly. Google translate works well enough these days.

I'd say order right from france though. It looks like a very cool kit especially considering it will likely obviate the need for a rear brass balance set.

Here's the order page from the French website in case you were having issues finding it:

300 Euro feels a bit steep for a conversion kit, but none of them are cheap. If you get it, tell us what you think.

i ran my dex410 2010 spec last night for the second time at our indoor bumpy carpet track in South Australia, Adelaide. I mounted a keychain camera to the roof to get some footage so i thought i would share it with you.

Finally broke my first parts after weeks of racing and hitting a pretty hard pounding triple, the top on both of the rear diff braces cracked and were about to give. I've had no major crashes, just super fast laps and a few hard landings when I over shot the back side of the triple. Swapped on the alum upgrades, I assume ill be good now. I must say, I'd suspect an issue with the amount of material in the area on the plastic is the problem. Need a running fix on this imo. So far my setup and this buggy have been smoking a mostly b44 filled class.

Im not sure why the designers didn't fill in the whole piece for added strength, but i already have the aluminum rear diff inserts so it doesn't matter to me.
Yesterday I also got to trades some laps with an experience TC driver driving his new Xray T4 and I didnt see anything advantageous about his car on the track. We both also switched remotes to drive each others car and his felt real good, but it didnt have that aggressive exciting feel of the dex410, he told me he wanted his car to feel like mine

I have been using the same Futaba BLS451 in this car for 3 seasons. Well, it is currently on its 3rd season. Many would say Savox but have seen way too many of those being returned.

You would be smart to reserach before buying. Lost of guys have lept all over these servos b/c they are priced well. I know some angry individuals that say "never again." Of course, many people are going to have different experiences. The hobby is dominated by competeing manufacturers. Competition is good as it constructs the fair market value for a product. The end result is you get what you pay for. What? Too nerdy?!?
