Hi Randy. Glad to see you here. Do you think a Redline 5.5 is to much of a motor for the Dex410? Should I get a 6.5 instead?

I will be running a 6.5 motor. So here is the story on the AE &/or Losi pistons . . . they are a different design and have a larger hole in the center. The Losi uses those two e-clips to "sandwich" the shock piston--so the shaft literally fits through the piston.

Well, the Durango uses the design much like an 8th scale, imagine that, and the shaft uses a screw to hold the piston on from the top. Now, as someone pointed out earlier in this thread, and as Grapejuice reminded me, there are those Ghea pistons that will cost you almost $50 USD for the set! They are machined delrin and appear to be convex.

Oh, sorry! Novak Kinetic w/ 6.5 Ballistic. I am going to order the JSX-R shock pistons from the Losi on-road. Looks like they will work as the appear to use the same attachment method. For now I will use the 2-hole and mod too Hupo's setup.

I would gear it at a 21 or 22 and check temps...

Just out of interest but how does a bigger pinion make the motor run cooler? I always thought that a smaller pinion = more torque/less top speed, runs cooler and a bigger pinion = less torque/more top speed, runs hotter.

If severely undergeared and running on a track which requires you to be full throttle all the time you could run hotter than if geared properly.

Default Must have parts and upgrades

Just got a DEX410R and was wondering if there are any must have up grades? Also what replacement parts are a must have for the pitbox? Any common breaking parts?

Thanks

Session 3 with the new BEast was a disaster omg those front hinge carriers and front/rear carries have got to go lol went thru 2of those last night the first one was my fault i was full wood down the straight and nailed a b4 parked in the middle of the str8t for some reason anyways replaced it and let my friend run it who wants one and he nailed a pipe head on perdy hard broke the outer front holder and inner and ripped the shock cap off,but he likes the car better than his fs!!...so anyways bottom line like everyone has been talking about a must is a the outter aluminum toe plate in the front and front rear and this car should be perrrrrfect,i went from a 21tooth to a 22 and my temps were real nice after longer runs,i also went to the next stiffer springs front and rear and rear swaybar i didnt get enuff drive time to really get a feel for those changes yet but it didnt hurt the car i do know that.. so anyways overall shitty night.....

Replace the front hinge pin holders with the aluminum ones. Part numbers are:
TDR330004 and TDR330006 Right now they are on back order EVERYWHERE though.

The ballcups have been a debate. Many suggestions in the thread. Other than that, build the car with the tips on oople.

Enjoy!

Okay...try this again, who would be interested in a group buy to get the front alum. suspension mount straight from Durango, since it's $30 just for shipping from them?
