so the tunability of a 2way slipper depends on how big your variety of slipperpads is? pads with less holes or more holes? bigger holes, smaller holes?

that is getting a bit of expensive

Yes the testing process could be. I have an idea for a slipper pad but I am not sure if they can be made yet. We will see what Marcus at RCShox has to say about it and let you know.

Anybody have a spare DEX410 bevel gear, part # 310005? I had a set of two and upon looking at them one of them is missing a tooth. They are out of stock everywhere.

so tuning a 2way slipper means messing with different pads. what a pain.

IDK, no more than using different diff oils, shock springs, shock limiters, different weight shock oils, tires, closed or open cell foams, droop screws, added weights, etc..IMO its will be a nice tuning fork to more define the car to your liking..or you can lock it down and it will be like the std center gear..

It is a quick drop in and out too so trying different pads or just testing the straight v3 slipper would be easy to do.

I agree, cant see it taking very long to find the set-up I will like..I think a tire punch might make a good slipper pad hole making device...

Default Hexes

Was there a final answer for a "proven" 12mm locking hex conversion, and which front wheels to use with it?

I searched and found a lot of discussion but couldn't tell what worked. Are the Avids the winner?

I picked up a used dex410r with the upgraded durango aluminum hexes but the pins fly out if you breathe on them wrong. Did the previous owner use the wrong size pins or is this normal?

Thanks!

Um, no, the pins are more than likely correct. The Td alumi hexes don't have much for pin capturing built into them. I use a drop of CA to hold the pins on mine..I cant speak for the 12mm conversion, but someone will chime in shortly..
