Default awesome car

ran my v5 tonight on a tight indoor medium traction clay track. Hands down the easiest 4x4 buggy ive ever driven. i was so skeptical to sell my v4, its definitely for sale now. If it helps anyone, i went with the shorty set up, still has tons of steering.

going shorty here.

Anyone got a line on some AE diff fluids in the 50K and 100K ratings? (or 60K as I guess AE doesn't make 50K) that doesnt' cost a ton in shipping to order?

I went rear motor like Travis and JP on a tight medium bite track and first time out felt better and faster than the v4. Anyone running the forward motor on a similar track?

So compared to the V4 is the V5 any heavier? If so how much more?

Just realized it also. Disappointed it wasn't included like previous kits. But no biggie I should have plenty on hand. At least their kits go together nicely.

same thing on dex210F, no fluids or tools Did they used to include grease too? Reason I ask is that I have this little container of durango grease that came in with some dex210V2s I picked up, kind of looks like associated green slime.

Is the diff locker thing worth picking up?

You only want the diff locker if you going to be running the slipper setup only. I bought the exotek slipper lockout as soon as they announced the car and its what I built the car with. I figure if I want to run a slipper I'll wait until I figure out what is for sure needed to run the V4 slipper and do that instead.

Also, no fluids, tools, and wheels in the kit.

The plastic diff gears hold up well. Never had an issue. But I have noticed a slight wear on the plastic gear pins. Nothing real major. But something to check with each dif rebuild while you have them apart. If the pin starts to groove they should be changed.

I run them in my V3, V4, V5 and 210F with 6.5 motors on carpet and haven't had any diff failures.
