Ok cool. 57 or 58 will work then. I have a new 58 in the package and if I dont have to spend anymore on a 57.....PLUS!

As many mentioned, there are deals going on for the DEX410 V3. Even though I've got 6 Kits sitting on the shelve still to be built (i.e. T4.2, Axial Exo Terra, DEX210, SC10 4X4 FT, 3Racing F113, Tamiya F104WGP)...I still bite the bullet and bought it, just couldn't resist the price. Don't really care about the V4 I am sure it would be expensive and V3 looks decent enough (at least in terms of the quality parts you get).

Any suggestions on Upgrades? This kit doesn't seem to need a whole lot of upgrades, I just bought alum. wheel hex all around, Gold shock pre loads (looks like the aftermarket shock upgrades for DEX210 also fits DEX410v3). Bought SP Reventon Pro with 5.5R MMM motor. Running 3PM radio and Savox 1256TG High Torque servo.

Thanks.
Rob

So how come none of the pro guys setup sheets show any of the weight kits that folks in this forum seem to think the car needs?

I've tried the pros' setups many many times and 99% of the time they just don't work for me. The track surfaces and my abilities are the main differences I'm sure but the cars just don't act like I want them to with those setups.

I've found that it's better for me to start with the most popular piston/oil setup in the shocks and the stock geometry. That is if I can discern a popular shock setup from looking at setup sheets for similar surfaces to what I run on. Or I just ask the friendly folks here on RCT. From there I adjust the springs and oils to get the car behaving correctly over bumps and jumps then I move to geometry changes usually starting with rear toe. From there I move to antisquat, rear camber links, front camber links, caster, and finally tweak the camber (I always start with -1.5). Then I make changes to the rear hanger positions i.e. LRC vs HRC to find what feels best. Then I go back through the whole process to see if any improvements can be made to that setup. I only experiment with adding or moving weight after the setup seems decent. Once I'm happy with it that's my base setup. It's a long process but the only one that really works for me.

I compare the process to getting your eyes examined. Make one change, "Better A or B, 1 or 2" till you get that particular setting dialed in. the other settings will affect everything else which is why I go back through a few times to get it right. Going through this process really gets you familiar with the car's reaction to each setting change.

Yeah, pro setups usually hose me too.

So for a large outdoor high bite track with pretty large jumps what is the hot ticket for shock and diff setups?

And what about for a medium indoor medium bite track with decent jumps?

Tough question. Get these: http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD330590 Maybe start with 1.7x2 in the front and 1.7x3 in the back 35f/30r oils and adjust from there. Dk Blue front and Lt Blue rear for the springs. This car sits pretty low and doesn't have a ton of downtravel so chassis slap is inevitable. Trying to tune out the bottoming results in a very harsh handling car. The key is to get it to land smoothly and still handle bumps and corner well. Downsiding the jumps well helps too LOL. Go to the 1.6 pistons if you want more pack.

I just tried my dex on a large 1/8 track with the carpet setup from Jorn and it was the best the car has ever felt on the track. The stock setup has massive oversteer, the carpet setup tames the responsiveness greatly. A big part of it i think is the 2mm sway bar up front.....

This setup of mine has high success rates.. LINK
I liked the 1.2x6 last year but on some tracks a 1.2x4 (close up two holes) may be wanted.. if you don't have a nice backside to land on. The buggy has a TON of steering for sure it does take some getting use to compared to others. I don't think it is listed on the sheet but I did run a rear sway bar most of the season.. I did not run a front sway, tried it, just didn't like it with my setup. Very dialed though even have some records with it.

What do you use for a sway-bar?
