Not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but I want that rear suspension hanger Travis is running.

Something that I missed until I looked at a setup sheet was the multi axle lengths. I thought there were only 2 adjustments but apparently there are 3 length options.

This is what should have made it to the V3. New rear hanger, separate rear bulkhead, in the case it's the one offered by Exotek, and a new chassis with side ways shorty or saddle option. I guess we'll have to wait until the V4 for these.

Or they might release a conversion kit for the side ways shorty?

I like that rear hanger. It's probably a lot easier to adjust toe in/out that way.

It might be creepy but I recognize the colors that they use. Travis is using the goldish color on all his washers and spring collars and stuff, JP uses the black stuff. Hopefully I'm right or this will be weird.

+1!

Nice find Laker67!

The aluminium rear hub is a bit different too, compared to the existing one, looks like, the mounting holes for the turnbuckles are further in!?

Are there a lot of modular parts from the 210/410? I have the V4 now and im thinking about running 2 mod but ive never ran 2wd buggy. Only run on carpet a lot of X-rays starting to come around.

Nothing really swaps over from the v2/3 buggies to the V4 wheeler, but the V5 wheeler will share the rear arms and hubs with the 2wd buggy when it's released.

Travis' car looks nicely setup, but it's baffling that Hobbico didn't engineer the v3 chassis to permit horizontal batter placement.

I ran the v1 on clay and it was pretty nice with the alum chassis. Anyway, here's a pic of the mod that Travis did. Doesn't look too crazy:

Like Laker said. The whole rear end of the new Dex 210f (forward motor), which was designed for carpet, is the same as the v5 wheeler. I don't know how similar the v4 and v5 versions are.
