Picked up a used v3 the other day and plan on dropping in a 10.5 I have laying around. Can anyone get me in the ball park for a pinion size. I'm using the stock 87 spur on a medium sized loose outdoor track.

I'd start with a 24 and go from there, but that should be awfully close

It would be more like 26 for 10.5, I use 24 for 8.5

Hey guys. I have the V3 and I was wondering what I should do for the shock caps, I bought it used and it came with the stock plastic bleeder caps but one leaks and i want to either upgrade them or if durango sells aluminum bleeder caps I would get those. Any suggestions would be great thanks.

I'd go plastic or Durango aluminum, definitely not strc aluminum though, I've had longevity issues with my strc ones and no longer use them after a season

I run the black Alum exotek's in the truck and they've been solid. I have the black TD Alum caps on my buggy and they've been great, and of course look fancy

I just installed the Rear u-joints, and I must say it is much smoother now. This thing runs like a beast just from revving it up! The whole package is so quiet as well. I hope this puts me back in the ball park, and not being thrown out. I just got Amains last set of the plastic big bore shock caps.

I suggest using the plastic caps because they are significantly lighter in weight than the alum. I've weighed them and I believe they are at least half the weight or less.

I really don't like aluminum that much for shocks, but it is needed in some places, like wheel hexes. I decided to get an RSX for this, and it was quite expensive. I have been using an RS Pro, but want to take advantage of the 2271 servo@ 7.4 volts. Not so much for the speed, but the torque. I use a 2274 servo in my DESC410 and it has been through a bunch of broken front end parts, and has held up well. Some think these servos are noisy, I just think they like to communicate.

Default dex410 v3

just got a used dex410 v3 and wish to prepare it fora a next race which will be after 10 days. Our indoor track is build before the race, so we have very limited training possibilities before the race (2x 5min practice time), so it will be a huge advantage if you could advice what setup should I put on my V3 on the very begining.

I`m going to race indoors on tight carpet (grey- high grip) track, no big jumps, but several edgy smal jumps all around the track.

will be using 7.5t Speed passion motor vs Trackstar 120A ESC
and servo Spektrum S6040
Tires- Shumacher minipins yellow comp.

It will be my first time runing 1/10 4wd car, although at 2wd class I`m curently 2nd in overal, so some driving skills I have, but this is my first 1/10 4wd car and first time will be runing Durango...( my 2wd car is TLR22).

So any help with setup or other tips will appreciate, as it will be necessary to compete against a bunch of XB4 (14`and 15`) and TLR22-4... hope V3 might be competitive with correct setup choise
Maybe some tips for ride height, camber, or similar -simple, but important adjustments for dex410 you could advice to try out on carpet track??
V3 for me is completely unknown car, but I very wish to get ready for the race as good as possible
