Here's my wiring and electronics placement. Tekin RS Pro, Futaba 603, Savox servo, Reedy sonic 6.5.

I had to change the receiver wire location to the mid-right of the buggy, as opposed to the front center of the buggy. I also wanted to keep the esc posts away from the motor since they act as the heatsink for this esc.

I thought it was well known that HW's OEM brand is speed passion.

I have a question. I just built my dex v3 as per book. my shock oils are 35/30 and diffs are as stated in the book. Ran the car the other weekend for practice and when on power in a straight away the car steps out in the rear and you have to get off throttle and get back on it. I removed the front sway bar and have plent of off power turn in the corners. I have the rear weight kit installed as well. Just need to find rear traction to hold on the straight aways. Other than that the car is great.

10k front and rear diff's to start.. should compare your's to my setup on petitrc, pretty dialed.

removing front sway bar will make the rear looser, same with heavier diff oil weight in rear.

Check the shocks for differences in left and right feel. Inconsistency can do that. Try 45/35 weights

Default Easily Broken Front A-Arms

I have recently broken a front a-arm absolutely every time I go out. Last weekend I broke 4 in two days from high jumps. What is the deal? Good land or slightly bad, they freakin break, usually at the rear of the front arms. I've watched insane jumps on YouTube from the pros good and bad and they keep going. What is the deal? Anyone else?

I rarely break a part and when I do it is my fault , not the car or manufacture .

If you saw these landings you'd agree there's no way these arms should be breaking.

Thats a nice and neat install. I think I am going to re-do mine I'm not really happy with it. I use a RS PRO too I am going to copy yours. Mine is similiar but I have the ESC reversed from the way you did it and with the wires soldered at a slight angle I cant get the motor in far enough to run a 22 tooth pinon like I want.

Is your suspension built correctly? Can the chassis bottom out before the shock travel stops?

I have about 2-3mm more shock travel after it bottoms out.
