I have not previously owned an Associated buggy but from my experience at the track the Durango looks to be just as durable if not more durable. A lot of the local b44 owners have been switching to Durango, Schumacher and Xray to try to find a car with a bit of a stronger front end.


In short: I have always really been impressed with my DEX410 durability and I would definitely say it's just as durable as the b44.

My opinion after having owned both a dex410 and a b44.1 is that the dex is definatly more durable than the b44.1. The b44.1 would pop out the cvds from the out drives, break front a arms and front towers quite easily.

speaking of durability, my DEX410 has held up quite well considering how hard I beat on it. I finally broke something on it. Anyone else ever break a front bulkhead?

Hi guys, I'm trying to decide between the dex410 and 410r from the tower sale- after the coupons and some other items in cart - it comes out to a 40 dollar difference between the two (120 vs 160) - i'm looking mainly for a kit to build and some light bashing - but I mainly want to get this because I love 1/10 4wd buggies (have a caster, b44, xxx-4 and various tamiyas) - and I've always wanted a durango for its unique chassis. Although I love the cool hopup parts - especially the big bore shocks- is the extra 40 bucks worth it for the 410 or should I just save some cash and go with the 410r? Thanks.

Get the 410v3, the 410Rv3 doesn't come with big bores for one.

v3 version has big bores, alum hubs, carbon towers and tons more.. way way worth the few bucks extra.
BTW I ordered one too.. I needed a few tires so I was able to slap a 50 coupon on it 199. free ship/no tax. 149 woah? Nice..

50 was with the added tires that I already had to purchase.. got total up to 300 :P

BTW the weight kit is needed as well as the aluminum horn and a aluminum saver arm (#TD330311) if this is your first..

Does the stock servo saver arm break during normal use or just in crashes?

Its more common that the splines strip out of the plastic than the horn breaking. Since the servo saver is built into the bell cranks, an aluminum arm is the way to go for sure.

TDR220001 for the normal kit, but they now also make a rear diff bracket that is weighted.. not sure how performance is as it's a pretty new item.

It can especially when you upgrade the horn (you need to upgrade the horn) But then again I don't leave a lot of play in my saver.. so if you don't mind a loose saver then you won't have issues.

yup, aluminum horn is a must the stock splines strip on your first rub on a pipe... not even a crash. Once you swap those two parts you won't have any steering issues.
