The 1.3mm is commonly known as 0.050", MIP sells a 1.3mm though and there tools are awesome. You get more then you pay for.

As trick25 said, there should be a 1.3mm/0.05'' allen key provided with the kit in bag Q.

A .050 hex wrench fits perfectly.

The v4 body is pretty solid in my opinion, it has held up to all my tumbles

TD has some tips for different parts of the build on their website http://www.team-durango.com/in-the-pits.php and I've got a few small tips in my build http://durangofansite.com/main.php?v...ld&buildpage=1

Looking at getting a 4wd buggy. Most threads on here say that the dex is fragile and hard to get parts for. Do you all have these issues?

I've been 'racing' my v3 for a couple months now and find it to be very tough. So far only had to replace two broken front A arms and inner hinge pins. That's after casing jumps, spiking jumps, landing on pipes, being landed on by SCT's in practice, doing endos over the wall and smacking a SCT in the rear after it stopped dead in the straight. I think the v3 and v4 eliminated most of the design weaknesses there may have been at the start.
My driving sucks but this sucker handles like a dream!

It really depends on where you are whether there are parts available, Amain and Tower have plenty parts and my LHS stocks them too (the owner drives a DEX410).

Most people who say the any of the durangos are fragile have never actually owned one. I've raced my dex410 a couple times and not once have I questioned it's durability.

Parts are hard to find locally. If you get a durango, also get yourself spares of the common items that break on any car. Arms, knuckles, etc.

I've ran a v4 all this year and have only dnf'ed 3 times if I remember right. That said, it's been through a lot, I'd consider it very strong. I have yet to break an arm, I've had 2 ball cup issues and broke both front bulkheads, but that was a violent wreak, tumbled down half the strait, it was insane

Well guess I don't need to add my 2 cents since the other guys have pretty much covered everything.

I've been impressed with the durability of all my 4WD Durango's. I've broken wing mounts on my truggy and a spur gear because the set screw came loose and that thing has taken countless very harsh hits over the past year. My DESC410 has yet to brake anything and my DEX410 has had the front tower brake from landing on concrete and the axle rip straight through the rear axle carrier, but that hit destroyed both bearings as well, and metal versus plastic can't normally tie in durability haha

For some reason a guy at my local track got a dex410 (first Durango ever), ran it into a pole, then sold it for a B44...never even had it on a track
