Although we should probably have a 210F thread for that car, has anyone noticed how high the spur gear mounts?

I would be suprised if it's mounted any higher then what's currently on the V4 wheeler.

It's virtually identical to the 410V4 mounting, except in shiny aluminum

Why didn't durango just release the v3 this way ? it would of give the car a sideways shorty option? Like the b5m, 22 3.0. yz2 Rb6 etc etc
Seems like a missed opportunity for probably not alot of work.

Just doesnt seem to difficult thats all.

Part numbers are
210F chassis td320357
Sidepods TD320402

What would be really cool is a standard 210 gearbox that could just bolt into the 210F. That would be versatile.

I was sort of getting at that in my earlier post, I noticed the 210v2-v3 210F and 410v5 all share the same rear arms now.

So looking at the rear of the 210F chassis the holes for the RF hanger should line up and the outside holes for the RR hanger's would be OK and the arms being the same, kind of indicates the spacing is probably the same. so going purely by eye all you would to do is make a brace to support the front of the 210 g/box and enlarge the rear hole recess in the chassis.

Or just go a Plan B chassis

I'm just going to keep working on this car and modifying it the way I want it. I'm probably going to buy the Exotek rear MM bulkhead and go from there. As much as I'd like to have the 210F, I've got 50 dirt oval kits that I still need to sell (I own Raborn Racing Originals) and other projects that are in various states of completion. I originally bought a B44.1 and a B4 front end so I could graft them together into this type of a vehicle. I still have them so I may just go ahead with that project and see what happens.

V2 body is a direct fit on v3. I have a v3 kit and a v2 body here and am doing the same thing as you. Still building my v3 but its far enough along that I put the body on it last night and it fit no issues.

There really weren't any changes on the v3 that I would have though would make the body fit from older kits an issue. Mostly just details in the drive train and front axles. No big layout changes or anything.

well I completed the deal, got two dex210v2s on the way:

2 durango dex210 v2

How well do the molded foams hold up to the baking method of removing tires?

Nice man! Sounds like you got a great deal! And the foams hold up pretty good but I hear the tire can stretch from a buddy that's done it a few times. I usually suspend the tires inside a bucket of acetone And they come off pretty easy after a week or so and no damage except some gooey glue to clean up.

DO NOT PUT THE ACTUAL TIRE AND WHEEL IN THE ACETONE IF YOU EVER WANT TO USE THE TIRE AGAIN. ��
