This car is all about choices, there is a lot of tune-ability in the kit that will allow you to dial the car into exactly how you want the car to drive.

The car can be everything from mellow and smooth to lively and aggressive.

for what its worth, because its such a big platform update, do you think the v5 and the 210F need their own new threads?
I think it would be easier to manage the information with separate threads.

We tried doing it when the v4 came out but the new thread died off. Product name remains the same, so casual user coming by may end up on either thread.
Would be good to have a decent page 1 tho, with updated tips/tricks/builds etc like other threads...

so I have been away for a bit as I was getting frustrated with the dex and wanted to concentrate on my 1/8 scale and sct getting them dialed. I tried selling my little buggy but would not sell...BUT there is new life with the V5.... I am thinking of just upgrading the little bugger!!!! think its worth it? We also just had a local to me driver sign on with Team durango, so I will have some local support again.

The only parts you'd be able to keep will be the front end, the shocks, turnbuckles and the diffs. Even the centre driveshafts are different.

You'll be spending more money in spare parts than if you were to buy a new kit.

Just my 0.02$

New DEX410v5 looks pretty good! I'm happy to see all the new layout configs. Curious that it looks like it has slipper pads and a center gear diff on the website. I see orange pads on the spur on both sides and I also see a gear diff housing...

I'm also wondering if this car still breaks the front suspension arms as easily as my v3/v4 did. Yes, I was using the Type B arms....I switched to the D413 because I was tired of breaking them....In some ways I miss my DEX410.....

What does the survey say? Thanks in advance!

Dave

The arms and pins should be the same as the V4 which would be the type B parts. I have broken a couple of arms but it was from being run into by other drivers and running the old grooved hinge pins. If you were running the older style hinge pins that were grooved out for the set screw then there was an issue with breaking the front arms because the pins would fail. With the HD front pins I don't think I have had any issues.

Its really fun. I find I can drive it really aggressively, and there's room for improvement once I get the base setup all sorted out.

Regarding starting a new thread......

It would be no different then LOSI having a 22 2.0 thread and a 22 3.0 thread.

After all this is pretty much a whole new buggy, not just a revamped 410R or 410v4.

A new thread is warranted.

If anyone became confused, we just direct them to the other thread.

Why does the the rear diff now come out towards the centre spur straight rather than on a angle like the v1,v3,v4 ?

If they would have kept it like the old angle a shorty battery sideways at the back of chassis could be done like the Yokomo YZ4.

Also Square packs could of been used.

Just a thought

Rear diff comes out straight because there is no kickup on the chassis at the rear and to give the diff a lcg
