I can't find any towers in stock anywhere let alone the non-fine tune. If anyone has a line on them please let me know.

I got my ArrowMax front shock towers, hopefully I'll get to the track and crash a ton and let folks know how durable it is. I use the HPI protectors.

My aluminum fronts are great, they bend, bend them back. I also sandwich my wing with two pieces of plastic to keep it from cracking, works great. I was running 40% on the current limiter and it felt to weak, so going up to 52% on the 5 turn. Now it really goes fast! I might have to cut the radio back for the first few laps with it.

Associated Pads are much thicker and seem to take a lot more more punishment before they smooth up, I've been running them for a while now. I hear you can now get Durango Garodiscs which are even more hardcore.
Yeah it did look cool. Actually locked it up and rand pretty good there for a bit. until the slipper stripped LOL. Do they make a locker for this? I have been researching the center diff for these but still am not figuring out what they are doing to get it to fit correctly. Center diff would be great in these.

To my knowledge there is no center diff that is a direct drop it. Most who run a center in the dex410 are running a custom chassis (longer).
Hopefully we'll see one in the true v5 (not Bmax's )

Not sure there is a locker either.. there is for the truck, never tried to fit it to the car I run 5.5t on dirt, not had an issue for ages.

Sand all surfaces and see if that helps on the loose slipper. I am chewing my nails in anticipation of running this with that 5 turn beast. I just don't know if I can really handle it or not. It might scare me and then I go back to the 8.5,lol. I just found myself wanting more power with the 8.5, like it was holding me back, not anymore. I am trying to figure out if I want to keep upgrading the V3, or drop it and go to the V4? I just installed all new wheel bearings in the front to see what happens. I believe in changing them after a certain time. I can't remember the time line for changing, but I am sure I have hit it, and then some.

I bet your lap times will be slower with the 5t a boosted 8.5 gets the power down pretty good and is fast around a track

A 7.5 is a great speed upgrade over an 8.5. A 5T motor will be too much.

V3 is a good buggy, but if its long in the tooth then a fresh car is always a good thing and the v4 has nice evolutionary upgrades.

Acer are still doing their Full Ceramics kits with 25% off and free shipping, thats $67. A worthy upgrade IMHO.

Ceramics are awesome for Stock!

Depends on the price point and budget, Otherwise try to find ABEC-3 ABEC-5 bearings, they cost about 1/2 of a ceramic kit. They are better than the current stock ones. If I had to buy ABEC-7, i would get ceramics instead,. Cost is similar.

Does Tower ever drop the price of the V4? I am using the current limiter in the RS Pro, and will go easy on it. I will take the 8.5 with me just in case this is too much.

Just ordered the universal fronts as it needs it to be smoother than what it is right now, plus it will probably pay for itself in less wear on other parts. I am also picking up the silicone seals for the shocks, I tried them in the Desc210, and they are awesome, so much smoother. I really hate the stock red ones, too much friction.

Ceramics in the wheel bearings are no good, you can easily damage them on impacts. Any future bearings I get will be abec-5's that I can get locally for cheap. There's a few tricks to make any bearing fast

I have a lot of impacts! My servo was acting up for awhile now, and sure enough it went out tonight on me. I opened it up(1257) and the teeth are missing in a section on the large gear. I had a arm break as a result of steering issues. I did pull the 5 turn off, and went back to the 8.5 with timing advance, it was faster. I was having heat issue with the RS Pro and the 5 turn, it got real slow at the end of the heat, so I pulled it. It was just one of those nights.
