Perhaps your lucky?! :P I know I know I made an oops here. haha.

Yeah….I'm not sure why or how….I will be using titanium screws next time and I now have shorty wrenches. I don't normally use the regular allen keys because they are usually pretty soft and I've always had better luck with a pro wrench of some sort. Same reason I always use Lunsford titanium motor screws. I've been using them for years and I never strip my spur gears when I do.

Thanks for all the tips everyone.

Thank you.

That dark section is don't with micro perf. Funny enough, the plan was to use faskolor silver or chrome for the dots but I couldn't make it all the way up to the hobby shop so I made due with what I had in my selection of spray paint in my garage and had gray krylon primer and that's what I used. I sprayed in my cup and thinned with lacquer thinner so it was really thinned and sprayed lightly with low pressure and faded it in. Once dry I hit it with faskolor charcoal gray.

Very pleased with it. Not too bad for only my 4th airbrushed body.

Thumbs up

tell me more about micro perf? Micro perforated mask?

I've been experimenting with 3M DiNoc which is automotive vinyl masking for my wings as a way to make them last a little longer. It does make the wing a bit heavy though. They also have several textures, my first try I used the carbon fibre style. They have flat colors as well and I plan to use some on the bottom of my chassis to protect it. I get it on Amazon...

MicroPerf is what is used on Windows. The back adhesive side is Black and the front side is white so you can print on it. The purpose is to allow one to see through it. t is primarily used for glass store fronts and car windows to carry the graphic over them without impeding vision. The adhesive on it is unique in that while it adheres to things well enough, it's not overly sticky so that it's difficult to remove or that it pulls off your paint with it. The adhesive is engineered to increase its hold once it is exposed to the heat of sunlight and after a few days in the sun, it's pretty well stuck on. Even still it's easy to remove with a window scraper. You can get some for dirt cheap from your local large format/signage printer or you can ask for a sample of it large enough to do several bodies. Just tell them you need to see if it will adhere to a special surface that's difficult to have anything stick to so you need to be sure before doing a job on the stuff.


Here's what it looks like.

Good to know but after how my v3 ran yesterday I don't think I'm switching to another 4WD any time soon. It was that damn good. Once my driving improves to pull consistent laps every time out, I have no doubt I will once again start winning consistently.

The one bad on this v4 is that body. I was o hoping they'd keep the styling of the current body rather than go cab forward. Having said that, this Cab Forward design is the smoothest and sleekest looking Cab Forward design to date.

I hope a Kuhler body will be released for it if the current one doesn't fit, which I'm fairly certain is the case. Wish we had more to see on it though.

My 410v3 is supposed to be coming today. What parts should I stock up on for racing? How about upgrading right away to aid in durability.

The LHS doesn't stock Durango parts.

Took my 410 to the first points race of the season on Saturday. Needless to say, I was pumped. I had just installed a used rs pro purchased off a user here. I did not have time to test it before hand due to family obligations. 5 seconds on the track and the esc poofed.

It was soul crushing, but I did really well for those 5 seconds.

What exactly categorizes tire combinations as odd?

I needed more bite off the line in the rear and a bit of stability through the corners in the rear as well and the front needed a bit of added side bite to help pull the front end straight as quickly as possible. Both tires suited each application so I tried it. Worked phenomenal. I suggest some of you try it to confirm it wash't just me.

You sure you didn't have a stray strand of wire creating a short? My buddy had something similar happen but in the pits. He plugged up his battery and all synced perfectly, he squeezed a bit of throttle and it did as it's supposed to but then shot out a puff of smoke and I detected the tell tale odor of burnt up circuit board. Low and behold, when I inspect it closely, a single strand from one of the leads was touching another. That strand was very dark as it took all that electricity through it. He sent it out to Tekin and they repaired it Free of charge because there was no way to determine the cause of the failure. It simply looked like something failed and the full surge of the battery ran through unfiltered until it burnt up.

I say try contacting them to see what they can do for you. Tekin has excellent customer service.

Good luck and sorry to hear about such a terrible outing.
