Although it's a tight fit in my buggy with an airtronics 92744 + Reventon Pro. Don't think I could squeeze in the fan sideways.




Off topic but has anyone tried these wings on there dex410? "FTW R/C 1/10 Buggy Wing
[FTW00005]" I'm looking for some new cheap wings for my dex410 to try out.

If you want some good quality tough wings try the LMR or R1 wings, Maybe a little more expensive but darn they are tough.

I might try with the RP and maybe a low profile fan. First Ill have to swap or sell a R10 for a RP
I have the micro sanwa RX so I might be able to make it work

Hey guys, life long Associated guy (24+ years) but rather than get the 44.2 I decided to go with a Durango for my 4wd whip because this thing has been calling me for some time! and I scored a complete package at a serious bargain. It is a 410v3R but it has a good deal of the V3 components and I will get it to a full v3 in no time.

I do however have a question regarding Durango shocks... Do they make non big bore shocks in the red and champaign and gold colors?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Non BB`s are alloy color only, but you can try to find Tresrey SB dampers. They are brown/gold.. and Tresrey shock nuts are red.

These are the shocks in question, all the way on the right side of the image:
They're NIP which is why I posed the question.

Wow, I can't drive this car! Finally got it on a proper high bite indoor clay track and I was all over the place. I made some adjustments and it was much better but I was over steering everything. The problem wasn't that the back end was too loose, more that I'm not used to a car that steers so precisely.

My question is about the shocks. The track was bumpy with undulating bumps more than rough square edged bumps. I am running the small bores, would the big bores be worth the investment ($185 including spring set)? Will they make that much of a difference?

Are there other mfg or aftermarket BB shocks that will fit that might be found at a lower price?

The big bores did make a difference but I would try the 21 degree front castor blocks first. Also what diff oil are you running?

Cool, I'll grab some of the 21* blocks and give that a go. That will surely take some of the twitch out.

Diff oils are 5k/3k f/r.

Definitely go thicker in the front, it will be more stable on corner entry and exit. Try 7~10k.

Try turning the steering expo down on the radio first, thats a free option to try first.
Do you have the weight kit?
You can try some weight on the rear hubs.. ill get a pic of mine soon

The easiest way to get rid of steering is a front roll bar.

I found the big bores to make very little difference in handling. But there do look very cool. They are lots you can do to make your car handle better without the big bores.
