I'm running the OFNA with length cut down just one hole. Works well. I have the 22 horn on my 210 and it looks like it would also work well.

Default what spares to get and bring to track for "new" dex410 v3?

I go from planes, to boats and now itching to get back to the track with a dex410 v3 coming from classifieds here and am curious what i should have in my spares. arms, bearings, bolts, the usual stuff i suppose?

*this will be the only vehicle i bring to the large indoor track here in san diego... sdrc as well as outdoor at hot rod hobbies near my mom's home in santa clarita, ca. setup is spektrum dx2s, orangerx dsm2 micro receiver, tekin rs pro, turnigy trackstar 5.5, savox 1258TG, TLR 22 shocks, kyosho buckles & cups, 3 sets of nano-tech saddle packs.

I ran a tlr22 buggy exclusively and it was very reliable. broken arm here or there. research led me to the durango 410 for it's noted durability. looking forward to the 4wd grip and control in the air.

thank you,
Harry

Id suggest several pairs of suspension arms. That seems to be the most common piece I break. Front and rear. I've heard the V4 Type B arms are a bit better than the previous versions with the set screw on the arm instead of the hub.

I'd also suggest several pairs of front and rear shock towers. I break these almost as much as arms.

The v4 has a smoother and lighter drive train with the type B front and rear drive shafts, UJ center shafts and plastic spider gears in the diffs.
It also has a 2-way slipper that allows for the front and rear to slip independently and allows for a bit of tuning.
The arms have been redesigned to have captured outer hinge pins and it's got a new body.
The v4 comes with different caster blocks too.

What about the TD alu servo horn?

Pretty sure TD's aluminum servo horns are just a bit too long to fit without grinding off material http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...+arm&search=Go

I run the Alloy TD servo horn in my 410 that ekt has linked it has 0.0001mm clearance on the front driveshaft I have run it for several race meets now and has not made a mark on it. I did notice that Ryan Lutz runs it and grinds a bit of the end off.

Anyone know any good ball cup replacements for the dex410? The ones on my v3 are ok but I feel there would be a better alternative for not popping off as often.

Go Lunsford with TLR Ball Cups and Studs all the way around. Same as Kyosho and they are the most robust and precise cups and studs I've ever run. Put them on my 4.2 and 85% of the slop up front disappeared.

FYI they are so strong I got nailed in mid air by an idiot with an 8th scale and it sent my car tumbling so hard it actually bent the left rear turnbuckle without ever popping off. how's that for solid?

you will need a new set of ball stud also.

I'm using kyosho ones (really good quality),
losi or lunsford 4.8mm ball cup will also work fine.

ball stud, I got the kyosho ones (not that good, no screw hole on ball, need nut driver to get them in or out),
losi 4.8mm are better (reasonably price and very good all around),
or lunsford titanium ones (expensive but save you a few grams in weight).

Thanks fellas,

Can anyone tell me if these are a direct fit for the DEX410V3 as well?

It is, all dex410 bodies fit all versions. The finnisher is the most functional (airflow and space for the electronics) but I'm not a fan, its awesome on the dex210 though. The new dimecx ball cups are a good option for those looking, they're a direct replacement and very hard to pop. I'd popped 1 in the steering and strip 1 on the rear camber link, but they've taken a whole lot of abuse.
