On a side note, Damn this thing is durable! The way I was driving would have left my b44.1 in pieces...
I am currently runnin 7k front and 3k rear. I am thinking I am going to bring them closer in line, perhaps 7/5 or 7/7. Thanks for the idea.

Do you run the chassis weights? I hate how much weight I need to add to this thing to get it to hook.

The DEX410 was initially designed for NiMH packs, with the change to lipos many people recommend the weight to make up the difference.

I run 7/3 also. Unless it is super high traction then maybe 7/5 or 10/5. Running squared diffs just makes the car to aggressive IMO. If you can't keep the rear behind the car try a lighter rear diff oil. After the weight set and slipper adjustment of course.

Agreed.. Our clay tracks traction has changed some and 10/10 use to be great, but now I'm down to a 10/5 setup for diff fluids. I also ended up adding just the rear sway into my setup, both changes yeilded good results and slightly faster lap times.

Mines on rails if you guys are looking for a starting point. I have not used on low bite, but med to high this setup is working great, I'd just edit tires as needed then tweak to your style.

Default Static / Constant front toe

So I've noticed with the kit default setup there is front toe change at full range of movement. At full droop the front wheels are slightly toe in. When front end is fully compressed the wheels have slightly toe out.

What settings / spacers are necessary to keep the front toe consistent throughout the entire compression range?

Thanks in advanced.

This is a result of camber gain and this is why you do all your settings at ride height. Your camber change will affect the toe also.

Hi, I am building a Dex 410R and in my build I am stuck. On page 16, bag C, part # 310039. I am having a hard time installing this plastic ring on the rear and front diff dog bone. I tried installing to the back diff dog bone and broke the plastic ring. My question, do you really need this piece covering the pin? I did follow the instructions and used the small set screw with lock tight. Will it really loosen up and fall out? Can I use something else? Anyone out there in forum world please help me and give me a good tip to move forward on this build.........thanks
