On saturday, i ran the first time on an hight traction indoor carpet track with my 410v3, man, what a different to dirt tracks....!
After a fiew changes, I liked it very much, but i hade some issues with the ball caps poping off from the steering link, twice i lost the complet steering link on the right hand side, when i hit the side board just a little bit!

After some looking, i saw, that the ball cabs on the inner site hit the ackemann and pushed it up a little bit, when the suspension is fully dropt in.
I did a little bit material off, with an key fail from the ball cabs and it was quit better.

If wanted, i can make a pic of it?

But decidet, that i will boil my spare ball cabs in hot water, so i readed in another post here.

For how long do you boil them?

Where do I start in this 800+ page thread. I just got a dex410. It is not the latest model. What does it need and where do I go for set up sheets. I am also seeing alot of people post about overheating issues. Is there something I need to do to prevent this?
Thanks,

-Josh

Which version do you have ? Is it stock ? Hard to say what you need without more info . I have never had an overheating problem with any of mine so not sure why some are .

Definitely install the droop screws. They are great for setting droop. Without them, you'd have to put spacers in the shock and that's a pain when you want to change the setting. I only wish the front arms had them as well.

I think it is the original version. I know it does not have big bores on it. Is there any upgrades that are crucial?

I would get the aluminum suspension mounts front and rear are needed . Aluminum servo saver arm and aluminum rear diff hoop would be a good idea but not as crucial as the mounts .

Hi there

Are the big bores a must have on the dex410?
I see many pro's like jörn running the small bore shocks on their dex410

you miles under geared mate

try at 24 or 25 / 87 with a 8.5 motor

turn current limiter down on your hot wire to 75% as well

Default Piston blanks

What piston blanks are people using to make 2 x 1.7mm etc. for the BB shock? I ordered a set of blanks from Tresrey but are not designed to fit the stock shaft. They use 2 e-clips--wish I would have looked closer!!

PS on the others.. 8.5's are great at most tracks, especially indoor racing. May want more or to boost the 8.5 on a large outdoor if you feel you are at a disadvantage on a straight but through most of the track and short run ups to jumps you will like the torque of the 8.5. I like 20-22t myself.
I am gonna try this setup. Dark blue up front? What spring do you like out back? Thx!

not for an 8.5 , 21-22 at the most . 24-26 is for a 10.5 .
