Anyone found a replacement aluminum servo horn (25T) for this thing? I stripped out the plastic stock one last week and ordered up an Exotec along with a TLR and neither would work with the stock linkage. The stock linkage doesn't allow enough angle to mount to either of the horns.

I ended up using the Exotec with a 4mm ballstud I had lying around and it seems to function perfectly except i'm concerned i'm at the limit of the angle the stock linkage will work.

Anyone found a suitable stock replacement?

Racers Edge clamping servo horns are the best fit, from what I've found, they have limited offset which suits the 410 https://www.amainhobbies.com/search?...pro+servo+horn

I use the TD 1/8 alloy servo horn and it fits well and the offset ends up being like this

I use a TLR 22-4 aluminum servo horn. Works for me.

Weird that's exactly what i got. I think my servo is so long that it's pushing it further forward than normal which is causing more of an issue than normal.

Please clarifying me what the durango two way slipper is used for.

Its better to use the two way slipper for astro/carpet or for low traction ?

on my dex410v5 I am using diff with slipper in the centre.

Any advice are appreciated

Put the Exotek aluminum hex bits on the car to replace the junk plastic ones and have run hundreds of trouble free laps. However, this past week my car was having a front wheel nut back off and shed a wheel during laps on 4 separate occasions.

And I torque those wheels down as tight as possible without having the hex start to rotate in the wheel. Any suggestions on how to prevent this?

Using AKA wheels and durango steel nuts. Never had this issue before and i can't seem to cure it.

personally I lock the slipper on carpet or use the Mkune style slipper pads as they don't fade.

Have you tried some blue loctite?

I would say the 2-way slipper is more suited to carpet/astro.

Check your bearings and that there is no binding in the axle.

Hi cain
i'm new to the dex410v5
Got a an advance experience in the 1/8 electric scale but since about 9 yrs a quit the 1/10 scale .. now i'm back to it .
I think this model tops among rivals.
Please, advise with the best esc/motor combo along with a direct fit servo .
I'm a basher but uses racing models for this ...
i need your advises & follow up here heavily..
Thanks

For ESC I personally use the hobbywing V3.1 ESC and it works well. For motor that will depend on your power needs, at this time I use an 8.5T. You may want to check at your local track to see what is common as well as what you are comfortable with speed wise. I am entertaining picking up a 13.5 or the indoor racing here.

As for a direct fit servo, if I recall correctly I am using the savox SC1258TG servo. The only servos you really have to watch for are those with fatter dimensions than the servo I mentioned as they won't fit correctly and can space the servo horn in an odd angle. I tried to get one of futabas newer high power servos to fit but it was just too fat.

Just my opinion but the only place you could really only use that kind of power would be on a very very large outdoor 1:8 track....and even then. I'm running the LRP X20 6.5 on a 1:8 track and it's a bullet. Properly geared for the track 5.5-6.5 is all you need. Hell, most of the guys I know would probably have lower lap times running a 10.5...........
