Thats good idea I will be doing that for sure.

That is why I put them in backwards in the first place I did look at the manual and just figured the it would go in screw up. Well now I know thanks guys for the help.

A few months ago I changed the oil in my rear diff and reinstalled it upside-down. I went to the track, put it on the ground, and pinned it; the buggy was spinning all it's wheels but sitting in the same spot. I was pretty bewildered before someone else figured it out!

I ran my buggy for the first time last night and I really wasnt happy with how it drives. Its very twitchy. I put the stock setup on it. Whats a good setup for this car I was thinking going down in diff fluid would help. Thanks for the help

Lengthen the wheel base, run 5/3K diff oils

The first time its always twitchy. You have to "run in " the diffs. Also for me it helped to go down from 10/5 to 7/3 on a low/medium grip clay track

I have the wheel base as far as it can go but I will try the 5/3 oil that is F/R right? Thanks for the help guys. What camber and ride height are you guys running? Just so you know I run on a smooth/small indoor clay.

You'll also want to check your Slipper to ensure it allows some slip. If you don't have any, the power is instant and will make the car difficult to drive. You don't need much, but it has to have some.

21° caster blocks!!!! Made all the difference for me. Once you get used to driving this laser beam it becomes a potent weapon.

My car isa pretty well dialed in and I have the 21° blocks but have not gotten around to installing them. Will be doing so this weekend. If they really make a big difference, I expect to place top 3 easily every time out. Going to revisit my ESC and receiver mounting position as my RS Pro is far too close to the spur and seems like it has been brushed lightly on the edge by the spur. Goes to show that these little cars are subjected to unimaginable forces while running at speed. My ESC is a full mm away from the spur and still does this. Going to be replacing the 3M servo tape with the super high-end stuff that will not allow it to move a single bit.

I think you'll like the 21° blocks.

That is pretty close to the spur. I have my TrakPower ESC 5mm away and haven't had any problems with it moving or rubbing. Using 3M VHB.

Try to remove the rear roll bar. Move shocks out on arm and drop 5wt in oil at the same time. Long wheelbase and just leave the rest as it is. Worked great for me. Put me 2nd behind xray ace teamdriver Magnus Vässmar last race. The car was very consistant and fast. I didn't like it either with the start setup.

Default Newb DEX410v3

Just ordered my DEX410v3. Should be here on Wednesday. Here's what I have for the build:

Novak Havoc Pro SC
Hobbywing 4WD SCT 3400kv 540 4pole
Savox 1258tg servo
Tresrey servo saver steering crank
Tresrey rear diff inserts

Any advise on known issues would be great. Hope it survives the new triples at WCRC, lol. Thanks!
