[QUOTE=jhautz;14330944]The v3 comes with 12mm hexes now. Just wondering if anyone knows which 12mm wheels make the buggy standard width.[/QUOTE


If I had to guess it would be the wheels that don't have such a deep dish where the wheel but goes . I've used the 22 Rear wheel and had to use a washer on each of the hexs to make it a little more narrower .

Owning the V2 il say its easier if you got a, drill driver and chuck a hex tool in it if you gota work on it its not that bad though to work on if you don't.

I think the big thing you get out of the v3 over the v2 is the 12mm hex setup. If you don't need that, I am not getting the impression you will need the v3.

If you need a fresh car they I would say, yes. The only real changes were the new multi length drivelines, 12mm hexes, and updated body. I bought the V3 and broke down my V2 for parts. It is nice too because you get everything that was in the V2 box along with the updated V3 parts. So you still get the axles (critical spares) and drivelines for the V2, and then the updated parts for the V3. You'll use the driveline from the V2 on the new V3 axles if you want the 65mm length, and they include the 62.5mm length in the V3 parts. All in all, my V2 was tired in a few places and it just made more sense to by the V3 for the new season then to go through and replace parts.

Seen Durango signed JP Richards to race their 10th scale buggies. Great addition for sure. Cool to see some Durangos at the Reedy race!

I want to try out those new multi-axles and see if I can get some more on power steering.

I'd sell my 210 for the new 210F but unfortunately you can't get anything for them. I'm definitely interested in the 210F though. It's perfect for our track.

Thats the truth for sure.

I got an offer recently on two dex210s that I was considering, heck, nice enough to just turn one car specifically into a "mod" car and the other "stock". Will see what the owner says but for sure they aren't out there big for resale value.

I do wonder on the DEX210F, since it can run saddles, is there any reason with some other changes (like ball diff for one, maybe use saddles) why you couldn't set it up for dirt or at least lower traction running?

Did my teardown of my current dex210, hope to get parts all cleaned up today and then start my rebuild with the plan-b chassis. Looking to make a carpet race on the 16th.

Anyone got any specific "plan-b" chassis tips?

Thanks for the reply. That F kit looks cool, huh???

New 210F looks pretty trick and if I ran Carpet I would order one or at a track where they run nothing but slicks. I don't think Medium and lower traction tracks this will work at but will see. Always someone to try ti make it work.

I'm deciding if I will build my new V3 in a 3 gear or 4 gear mid motor. Seems nowadays that most are going 3 gear with the other brand for both stock and mod.
