Thanks ridgeracer! I'm sure I have some washers or shims laying around that will work.

How is that Avante of yours? I always wanted one of the originals when I was a kid.

I bought one in -88 (still have it) and when the Avante came back in -11 I had to have one. My dream was to make it competitive at club level, but the DEX410 are so much better to drive
Also bought the DMX410 kit, but even with 5mm longer wheelbase it is much more nervous to drive than the DEX410.. Still alot of testing and adjusting to so Im not going to give up on it.

This is the shock setup I was running and as far as the setup sheets go it appears to be what hupo runs on almost all off-road tracks, with minor shock mounting adjustments.

Front:
Spring: Dark Blue
Oil: 35wt
Piston: 4x4.1

Rear:
Spring: Light Blue
Oil: 25wt
Piston: 5x1.3

Any suggestions on a good basic big bore setup for a loose off-road dirt track would be great.

Thanks!


Front:
40wt (Losi)
2 x 1.6mm pistons
Dark green spring
2mm inner limiters

Rear:
30wt (Losi)
2 x 1.6mm pistons
Dark green spring

I have the all 3 ballast weights added to the rear.

I read that Avid are releasing pistons for the Xray 4wd that are drilled with different holes on the same piston. Front : 2x1.1mm and 2x1.5mm. Rear :1x1.1mm and 2x 1.6mm.
Want to try thismyself with the Team Durango taper pistons

Anyone using the two-way slipper? I'm assuming it acts like a slipper diff? Makes sense to use it to me.

What is the magic diff set up on this buggy. Is it like the desc410 and need to run heavy diff fluid to get it to calm down or what's the key? I have a v3 I'm running on a hard pack dirt track with some ruts and pretty blown up in some of the corners?

I ran 15k/12k to start and found it difficult to drive. Went to 5k/3k and like it much better.

No, it is now less prone to spinning out under power in turns.
