Not a bad Idea. When I was running my 10.5 geared to the hill my whole chassis was hot. Then it finally died @ 285...........

Anyone running the full weight set? I have them but not sure if I should start out with them or not. Might just start with the side pieces and go from there.

I dunno! Grapejuice what do you run? According to the Oople review article it was beklieved that the plastic was actually an upgrade over the carbon rear brace in terms of felxibility. Seems like a lot of efforts were made to make the "R" version less rigid over the original release.

I am currently not using them and the car feels great(but thats because I don't have any). I ran just the side weights on my old car, made a big difference in helping the car be more planted, so I will probably do the same on the new car.

I have an R, so it has the plastic brace. I think that piece gives the chassis more flex then just the side pods because the side pods are still pretty stiff but I'm sure they help too.

Start with none.. then add them on the sides and the rear.. I prefer my car without.. it makes you stay on power thru the entire turn to keep the weight out back for traction.. it requires a little different driving style, similar to 1/8th nitro, but my lap times went up an avg of .7 with my fastest being 1.4 secs faster jus changing my driving style.. you have to remember the 410 was designed with nimah batteries in mind.. so now with lipos the car is front heavy

Honestly - stock setup, right out of the box, with a LRP TC spec and a X12 6.5T motor this car drove better than any car I've ever driven. It does run very hot but otherwise it is fantastic. I ran it on a high-grip, clay, indoor track.

I just wish 4wd 1/10 was more popular at my track. I'd love to race this buggy as often as possible. We need to start a campaign.

I am all for the campaign! Seems like this car might increase the 4x4 class size here in Denver. Mr. Grapejuice probably has the best insight on this but seems like the car is stirring up a little excitement, and on the heels of electric 8th scale gaining ground, I bet you too will see a few more racers in this class.

I am in my 2nd year of running 8th scale electric and this car really fits the bill as a winter racer. The thing is built like a small eifff buggy. A work of art and engineering . . .

U GUYS WOULD love our track for winter 10th then.. we have anywhere from 100-as high as 190 entries every saturday for club racing we average 135..our pro 4wd class is probably 3- heats deep with about 8-9 in each heat and the sportsman 4wd class is just a tad bigger with a consistant 3 almost 4 heats deep most of the time..we also host the jconcepts winter nats and also have a nats region race there. Smac Trac is the bomb this year were adding 1/8th electric to the schedule should be fun...
