A couple other comments about the buggy I forgot to toss out there:

1. The diff is straight up amazing... Super robust diff screw, (14) 3mm balls, massive rings, high quality outdrives... amazing. I went right for ceramic 3mm and thrust cage right off the bat. This will be the diff that all past and future ball diffs will be measured against.

2. The rear hubs, bearing sizes, and captured CVDs are amazing... They look like they belong on an 8th scale or something

no.. not even close.. compared to the WORLD? all of europe, ALL of asia, south africa, middle east etc.. i wouldn't be surprised if we weren't even 1/3rd...

if you look at the results on european 4wd races.. if there are 50 cars at a race 20 are durangos then another 20 are AE. no race events will have numbers like that here.

i don't think anywhere in the world even runs (super) stock classes. only here in the US they want everyone to be a winner.

You can come on down to my track and ill show you how to be a loser I kid!! I kid!! .. Seriously though, thanks for the info... is 87 the gear they chose because they run much larger outdoor tracks in Europe with hotter motors? Here everybody runs 8.5s or 9.5s... and we all run 81 spurs.

I think a lot of it has to do with the mid/rear motor configuration and weight placement of the motor.

I agree that a nice range of spur gears would be nice. We've already passed this info onto the powers that be. They're already working on it.

You can tell by the evolution of just the Dex410 car that TD listens to the users and customers to make a better product. The V3 has subtle yet powerful changes to make it not only more affordable but a winning setup right out of the box.

They don't run 17.5 overseas very often especially in offroad. That is a very US type scenario.

I'm fitting a short Protek in mine right now.
Personally I'd just get RW Racing to do them for TD

Sorry for the confusion.. I guess I didnt check the correct box for the 3 or 4 gear selection for the SRS setup sheet. Both setups should say "3 gear" configuration.

The car felt great on the track! Tons of steering without breaking the rear end loose. I like it. Didn't get much running on it though. I brushed the wall after a jump and broke a caster block... Not really sure how it broke but oh well. Parts should be here tomorrow or Friday and we'll try it again this weekend.
