How does wheel offset compare between Durango wheels and now - possible 12mm wheels like Associated or Losi?

I have been running B5 wheels front and rear on my 210v1 with 12mm hex conversions. Exo tech on rear and B5 spindles on front.

Yeah, that's my understanding.

Yokomo also used the O-rings on wheel hexes and I had them ages ago on my MR-4TC sedan. Super easy and you never strip a set screw or snap a hex from over tightening.

Our current track is probably better suited for the 210F. Grip is so high that everyone runs slicks.

I'm really loving that $250 price tag. With Tower coupons, you could get it for less than $225.

Even some of the hand-modified adjustments will still carry over to the v3.
I know there are a lot of people that want/like sideways battery mounting and there a lot of people that have made this modifications themselves or after market companies that offer these. those are still valid and would carry over to the v3 too.

for the DEX210F and DEX410v5, both of these cars are the biggest updates to the TD 10th scale platform so far so I would imagine a new thread would be useful for these kits.
So how long until the others are released?

I'm excited for the subtle differences and a fresh car. I was going to pick up a new V2 anyway so this is even better for me. I'll get to run this on carpet first until the 210F comes out and then get to compare the two. Im a pretty excited guy today!!

looking around for a 2wd buggy to race on dirt. Interested in the new V3, love the price tag for what it has to offer.
How is durango's quality compared to the other top contenders?
Thanks

I agree with Fred , the quality of the durango cars is pretty good. I ran the dex210v2 for a while and very rarely ever broke anything. The fit and finish of there parts was pretty good too.

I have a v1 with some of the v2 uprades.
The car is very well made and durable.
I was looking to try something different and got myself a vbc Firebolt. They are very well known in onroad for quality so I gave it a try.
In two weeks I broke two front bulkheads and a gearbox case (!)
Still, the car is very fast and good quality, but I am starting to second guess myself and maybe go back to my beloved 210.
Just get a fresh kit and be done with it...
