thanks. are there options to make it 30 or 35?
I wonder if they'll be full arm options?
is there a way to put the front shocks behind the shock tower like the v2?

Honestly I know there's options to make it have more caster. But I don't know all the options off the top of my head.

+5mm +7* brass front bulkhead would make it 32.

I know there is a +3* caster blocks. I also believe there are +3* C hubs also. So I'm sure you can get to 35 with a couple option parts.

I'm assuming you're talking the Shocks behind the tower in the Rear not the front? The rear Shocks can be mounted in the front or rear of the tower. The front Shocks are only behind the tower like on the V2.

The standard v2 full length arm is a direct fit part. The high bite arms are an option part for the v2. They are the exact same thing except 1 or 1.5mm shorter width.

The biggest changes are it's a mid motor only car, 3 gear low cg trans, chassis and side pods. The rear arms, hubs, and mounts are the same as well as the whole front end (towers might be slightly different).

Is it worth upgrading the V2 to the V3? I am thinking about getting a used V2 but saw that Hobby Pro was releasing the V3?

The V3 also comes with high bite arms so they are slightly shorter then the v2 arms. But the v2 are a direct fit if you want to go that route. The alum hubs are also different. The ones the preorders got a -2mm hubs. I've also heard the standard plastic hubs come in the regular kits now. The front tower is definitely different. I didn't compare but it looks like the geometry has been improved. Plus with the pro steering blocks the bump steer spacers aren't nearly as tall as the regular blocks.

Overall I feel like the car has been updated fairly well. If you run on any kind of medium to high bite this will be a great car for you.

The V3 comes with molded +3 caster blocks, so stock it has 28 degrees of caster.

+5 aluminum caster blocks are available too

On the steering make sure you use the inner hole for the steering turnbuckle and space your servo forward. If you use the 2nd hole you won't have enough steering throw. my Ace 1015 is spaced 3.5mm forward.

Looks like direct from HobbyPro is the best price if they ship international.

Shipping is not a problem, I have a US address to ship to (APO) I don't think the UK prices will be cheaper. (although some buggies are, like TLR stuff and Xray stuff)
