So i get like two different kind of rear axels, or are the v2 parts, they where updated not in the kit anymore?

Thx in advance
Everything from the v2 is in the kit along with the updated v3 parts in their own kit. So yep, everything all in one kit. It's pretty sweet!

Yep, the fumes will break down the glue. You can't do it anywhere cold either, it needs to be somewhere that's at least room temperature. If it's to cold it doesnt produce enough fumes to unglue the tire. They will usually get a little wet but the tire doesn't harden up like if you actually soak them. And after you hit with some tire sauce their usually good to go. With all that said, if you do it, do it at your own risk. I just have to put that on there.

Laker67,

Thx for the answer!
So it would be a pretty good deal than, as the price is the same as the v2 was.

I think the car is a great deal, it's actually $30 cheaper then the v2. The v2 was $279.99 on tower before they went back ordered.

+1 for a vehicle completely new in box, the V3 is a good deal for sure.

Anyone need yellow front DE Racing Durango style wheels? I got like tons of these new that I would never get to, and they are yellow where I usually get white or black.

Remeber, no matter what temperature a room is, that's room temperature.

Awkward timing for the dex210f. Released in the middle of carpet season. I like the engineering and idea behind it. Likely get it for for next year. Changing my current ride between indoor and outdoor during the spring is just too much time in that period due to work. Was going to buy a used dex210 for carpet only but this layout in intriguing. Can't wait to read some reviews until then.

I was thinking the same thing, even here in Canada where the indoor goes on until may, everybody has already a ride dialed for it.
They are either releasing it really late or really soon... For next season!

The timing of the release is based on what projects they are doing in what order and when those projects get done. They did the DEX8/DESC10 first and released them. Then they did the DEX210V3, 210F, and 410V5 next. This is just where the timing fell once the projects were completed and parts were ordered. There's nothing weird about it. You can't just time big projects to coincide with some racing season somewhere.

Got my V3 all built on Sunday. Just need add ESC and set it all up. Build wasn't too bad overall and went smoothly. One think I liked is the new orings in the shocks made my shocks much smooth than any other Durango shocks I have had. My previous 210 shocks where decent but with the purple o ring. The suspension feels really nice so once the motor and esc are in then will see what adjustments I need to make. Only hop up I would like down the road is to have alum. 12mm hexes for the V3. Plastic ones are ok but when and if they make aluminum ones I will be ordering some. The newer updated ball cups are a welcome addition vs the original ones that came in my original 210. These fit great and don't pop off when I make adjustments.

Hope to have time to get the new ESC in and make fine adjustments to the car. Final piece will be my body that is at my painters now.

did the original 210 have holes in the ballcups for easy adjustment of the ball screw?
