I think if I remember, the .3 wheels with the 10mm hexes actually makes the front a touch narrower then the durango front wheels. But I'll have to dig some out and measure them up to be sure.

Let me correct this.

SQUARE PACKS DO NOT FIT THE V5.

Default Wheel hexes!

Does anyone know, what standard sice the DETC410 wheel hexes have?
They are clamping hexes and are aviable in different thickness, so may the could fit!?

They were asking about square packs for the v4

The DETC410 has smaller diameter axles, so the hexes won't fit with out modifying them.

Ekt, thanks for that info.
Do you know what sice hexes the TC wheels use?
If the hexes are 12 mm, you could (let) drill them with a lathe, for an exact centered axle hole.

The hexes are 12mm. The other thing to consider is that the pin groove is located on the other side of the hex.

Why is that ?? I saw Travis's shot of the car and noticed it would be saddles/shorty only but why didn't they design it so it was like the v4? the front shaft is still flat ? strange.

My guess is, to allow for more weight bias tuning without having to add weight.

It could be, as on some pics from the worlds, i saw from Travis's 210F, it looks like, you can move the rear drive shaft loop up and down in the rear bulk head, so may you can fit a lipo under the drive shaft too, like as the older 410's does!?
The 210F and the 410v5 does share the same rear end, i think.
May i'm wrong, but it does look like to me?

But we will see soon.

Well, I decided to turn the DARC into something a lot more fun to drive. I happen to have a ton of Durango stuff lying around, so this was super easy to throw together, and gets you something very unique.
Here's how it's made:
First, convert your DEX410 to a DARC. You don't have to have a DARC conversion, but I happen to have one. I used it because it's a longer wheelbase than the standard issue DEX410 (the regular 410 will work just fine). You should be able to find PLENTY of used, cheap 410's kicking around the internet.
Next, remove the arms, hubs, knuckles, links, outboard drive shafts and shock towers. Say goodbye to the buggy wheels and tires.
Now grab a DESC410. There's also plenty of cheap used DESC410's for sale all over the place. Harvest the same parts that you removed from above (arms, hubs, knuckles, links, outboard drive shafts and shock towers). Throw out the plastic shock towers and get some nice DESC410 carbon towers.
Bolt it all up to the DEX410 chassis. Its all 100% direct fit and completely compatible with no modifications whatsoever, right down to the hingepins. Toss out the short course tires. You won't need them.
Purchase Team Durango stadium truck wheels and some suitable tires for your local track. Mount 'em up. You may have to clearance the front arms at the outer ends where they extend into the rims to prevent rubbing when steering. Very little material to remove. 2 minutes with a dremel.
You'll need to replace the front outer steering tie rod ends with hooked ends to clearance the wheels. I chose the RC4wd ends as they were readily available to me. They come in long and short versions:
http://store.rc4wd.com/M3-Offset-Sho...0x_p_1741.html
http://store.rc4wd.com/M3-Offset-Lon...0x_p_1740.html

The stadium truck wheels are larger than your old buggy wheels by quite a bit. You'll need to change your gear ratio by quite a bit to get around the track properly. I chose the associated 93 tooth spur gear for my truck, but you'll have to get the center machined out to fit the Durango shaft size if you want to use it. This works very well with hot motors like 5.5's or 5700kv's. If you run a lower KV motor you can get away with the stock 87 tooth durango gear and a nice small pinion.
4 pole motors work best on this conversion because the 410 is already a heavy kit to begin with, and now it weighs even more.

Start by following typical online setups for DESC410's for shock pistons and oils. Tune from there. I went with the lightest springs (yellow) from the White series of hard Durango springs:
http://www.team-durango.com/blog/wp-...h-big-bore.jpg

Now you'll need a body. I grabbed a Losi mid motor stadium truck body (it was conveniently at the hobby shop). You'll need a mid motor body so that the shock tower bulges in the body are in the correct location.
You'll have to make your own body mounts for this project. Mine are very straight forward: Simple angle aluminum purchased at Home Depot, cut to size and bolted onto the shock towers through existing holes. Then simply measure, cut and mount vertical body posts to your angled mounts, line up the body and mount it up.

This thing really rips around the track. On super small tight tracks, I find its a few tenths slower than my 410 buggy. Put it on a medium to large track and it really starts to shine. The rougher it gets, the better it handles compared to the buggy.

Pictures to follow shortly
