Thanks
Haven't received it yet. With the holidays and all I figure maybe I'll see something end of this week or early next week. The owner offered very good communication by the way and even added something to the chassis for me that was a nice touch so excited to get it in.

If I recall correctly, did you click the "V3" logos when viewing the manual online. It pops up addendums showing the specific V3 stuff.

ahh yes, you are right....I wouldn't have known otherwise had you not mentioned it!

how did you figure that out? Didn't exactly say "click here"

now I wonder if durango will offer the hex conversion as a kit

I think either someone mentioned it or I noticed when I moused over it was clickable.

To be honest they could have just made a new PDF for the V3 at least.

It would be cool if they did offer a conversion to hex as a kit.

As In general I got tons of the standard durango wheels here I decided to just pick up the 12mm rear exotek hexes to have on hand just in case.

Honestly, if someone wanted the wheels, etc in a trade i'd be game as I mainly want to use white wheels here and we use mainly dirt style tires, got tons of tires that are more for indoor or really hard packed stuff in some excellent to like new conditions. Good find, just no where to really use these here.

All ordered from Amain:
Front axel: PSM01631, can use any of the B5 axels.
Steering knuckle, from DESC/DEST: TDR330382
Bearings: TDR601002: 5x10x4
Bushing, or crush tube between bearings. Keeps it from binding: TDR712003.

These are NOT the new V3 parts but work very well.

Here's a link to the v3 addendum page for those that are interested http://www.team-durango.com/pdf/manu...3-addendum.pdf

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!?
My guess is that it has something to do with the difference in driveshaft angles. I don't really have the knowledge as why it would affect it.

I have been using the non Durango parts listed above for about a month. They work great and the car drives very well.

The new parts don't allow for the added trailing adjustments. Uses the exact same steering knuckle I mentioned above. The only thing that can be minimally adjusted is track width once you go to 12mm hexes. All depends on the axels you choose.

I read somewhere, I think Facebook that the 410v5 is coming out in February. So maybe the 210f will be released then as well.
