The 44mm shaft will work. It will give you more droop in the front if the stops on the front suspension hanger aren't doing their job. But worst case just limit the shocks internally and you should be fine. the 210F and V3 use the 42.5mm shock shafts and the 410 I believe uses the 44mm in the front. The rear shocks on this car are 29mm shock bodies and the V3 and 410V4 use the 31mm shock bodies. I learned this the hard way my first time out with the F. I was in a hurry to build my car for our first big race and just threw on my V3 shocks since they were already set up for the carpet. During the main the 31mm shock bodies gave the car to much droop in the rear and made the dog bone pop out. Lesson learned I guess, run the shocks your supposed to in the rear haha.

If you run longer front shafts, you'll lose shock up travel.

alright some news:

I ran the dex210F and dex410v5 at a race event this past Saturday. DEX210F was in 17.5 blinky class and the dex410v5 Mod.

The DEX210F was ran basically in box stock configuration with a 75T spur gear and the new Maclan 17.5 Motor. Tires were pretty much a worn proline MC compound tire, basically slicks.

the DEX210F was pretty much on fire. The speed of the vehicle and its ability to rapidly transition on the track was very impressive. And the Maclan motor, WOW!

Now, on to the bad. I broke 2 front shock shafts. One of the DEX210F, one of the DEX410V5. Neither of these were on hits that should have broken the shafts. The dex210F was barely moving when I bumped the rear of a vehicle and it snapped at the threads.

In particular, the point of breakage was about 1mm from the top of the thread on both breakages, and hence became lodged in the shock end.

I sent Hobbico a message about this and will see what they say. I was able to at least continue in one class as i did have 1 replacement shaft and I managed to slot the shock end and remove the broken part, but at the cost of a weaker end. It managed to get me throw the day however and after a bad mixup towards the end of the a-main, I took second. I may have also had the fastest lap as well, breaking the 13 second mark which no one else was able to do.

Looking forward to great things out of this car!

Not good, I would say there is definitely an issue with these shafts. Please let us know when they get back to you.

yeah will do. I was lucky I had one sitting in the box and no issues the rest of the day. So it could be that whatever "stock" is out there for order replacements may be good to go. It could be whatever the batch is that went in these cars has an issue.

I would suggest if you have had these issues, notify hobbico.

Fella racing his for the first time broke a front shock shaft on a hit Friday, was a hit, but not something id expect to snap a shaft at the threads!
Car looked good though, high grip carpet, box fresh, car has a ton of potential!

+1 . If it wasn't for the shaft I would have been golden, the box stop setup was money on the carpet track i race at for sure.

I'll post what I hear back from hobbico, for those threads that snapped, how far down on the shaft where the threads are did it break? mine was consistent about 1 mm down.

Do we maybe expect some shorter rear arms, or new rear hubs!?
You have also the possibility to turn the RF hangers to narrow or wide, too!
Manual of the 210f and the 410v5 is pointed at narrow for now.

What do you think?

These shafts are options for the car right now. I don't think that they will be coming out with different arms or hubs. The kit comes with the 60MM shafts and you have the options to run the 57.5 drivelines in the axles provided and the 62.5 just by moving the shaft to the different holes in the axle. This will change the mechanical grip of the car and cause the car to have more or less on power steering. I haven't messed with them to much right now so I can't tell you which is better but its something I'm hoping to try soon.

If you run the longer shock shafts in the rear, the 52mm versus the standard 50mm, how much uptravel do you expect to loose on the rear and is it noticable?

mind you, I am talking about the shaft itself on the stock rear shock bodies, limiting uptravel. Reason I ask is that in a pinch I have a variety of the 52mm shafts so I am thinking I coudl get away with how they are for now in case something did happen.
