have a set of panther slicks that I threw on for carpet since they don't allow hard pin tires like schumachers and they worked excellent.

I have the v2 and it appears v3 looks the same except the front wheel base adjustment and inclusion of 12mm hexes and a new body. Any real differences or does 99% of the buggy retain same parts (part numbers)?

different rear axles as well.

Looking at the manual, I get that impression as well.

Ok looked at exploded parts view of v3 and there are only about 5 new parts. Mostly axle related. Everything else is same as v2. Not sure why they would call this v3. Could have been a running change v2. But I guess it may sell some more kits if it appears to be new. $250 or even less with coupon codes is a steal for this v3 though. Hope plastics didn't change.

yeah, as you can see earlier in the thread the boxes are even the V2 ones with just a sticker put on them.

I agree Personally would have rather seen it named something like V2.1 or something. "V3" makes me think a bigger change, like if they went to a different chassis, etc.

All in all though, great price and its nice to seee them still do stuff with the platform.

Did you receive the Plan B chassis yet. How does it look?
Thanks

Less weight and I'd imagine it would make the diff action feel lighter.

Hi,

Now that we are talking about diffs, I know the ball diff is the right choice for mid/low grip dirt... T. Amezcua explained that to me but when would one use 2 gears? when 4?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I haven't tried it myself to see the difference, so I can't offer advice on it, sorry.

For the weight saving side of things, I use the plastic gears over the metal ones but they do require checking occasionally.

I know some people run 2 gears simply because that's what the RTR kits came with.

Questions?? Multi-Axle thing?

Could someone please explane those Multi-Axles to me?

From what i see, you don't change the rear weel base, only the contact point from the axle to the pin/bushing, and therefor are the two different length of drive shafts!?

Why does that provide more, or less stearing, if i mount the bushing further in, or out?

Thx in advance and

Taken from the TD website
The tuning range available with these axles provides an increase, or decrease, in corner entry steering response on-power, which can also be felt as the car drives into the mid-corner arc.
Progressive corner on-power response - 62.5mm axle length
Aggressive corner on-power response - 65.0mm axle length

Thanks ekt, i was reading that before, but i would like to know, why is that so, that steering changes at all, by changing the length, or the mounting point from the axles/CVD's?

Edit: would be nice, TD does a bundle package for the v3 parts, maybe exapt the v3 body, so people who have a v1, or a v2 can purchase/upgrade and not have to buy all parts seperatly!?

I'm really just interested in the front hex's.

downloaded the V3 manual, and it shows bearings in the front. Obviously too hard to change the manual......so they probably included an addendum with the manual for the updated parts!

if anyone comes across the parts required to convert, let me know please!
