I bought this kit on sunday. Last night I was assembling the CVDs and noticed that one of the driveshaft bushings was not threaded. Has anybody run into this? Its weird that 1 of the 4 in the kit wouldn't be threaded. The part must have slipped through QA.

Other then this defective part I really like the DEX410 so far. I don't think I would have like the B44.2 nearly as much.

Curently run 20/7 in my diffs, what should I expect if I try the 10/10 that is so popular with Joern and lutz? Smooth track with pretty high traction (smac trac). I am looking for alittle more low speed steering without getting the rear end loose. I do not like a car that steers from the back.

You will definitely get more steering. The first time I drove mine I felt the same way, I couldn't get used to the way it rotated..I went to 12/5 and it felt good until I pushed it, and it pushed back, badly. I am at 7/7 right now, and it feels good, good steering, and doesn't over rotate..

i use the Tresrey ones…i just used some spare diff screws because they're counter sunk and they center the piston up on the shaft…the shaft has enough threads for the length of it if you didn't want to cut them down some and i use the stock bottom washer and no issues...

10/10 is the ticket on med to high bite tracks.. I run on a clay pretty high bite indoor track and it's on rails.

22 or 23 pinon and 87 spur mate but make sure you check temps every few minutes when your testing just to be safe

run in duel mode as well will drop heat issues a bit

i honestly think you will struggle with that motor and esc combo mate a 4 pole is way to much for these buggys

most run between a 6.5 to 8.5 and have power to burn i think your combo will far out way your set up issues if you have any
