Baa humbug! Ha ha. Figured. Sucks because looking through the bodies for the 210 and 410, I really like the older bodies. They are sleek! They look fast sitting still.

Did you guys find the V5 to be night and day better than the V3 and V4? It looks as if the biggest changes were made to accommodate shorty batteries instead of saddle packs.

These bodies are unreal. Nice blend of modern and vintage. Hell, I might buy a 410V4 just so I can use them. I know the 210v1 will be wearing these soon.

Those are nice body shells, my lhs had the bugle boy 210 body for a long time at stock, i do like the kooler body from my 410v3 quite allot, but it was a pain to airbrush it!
actually, the new line of td bodys are looking well to me too.
Never could get a friend of that extreme cab forward, stealth looking bodys...

...and, i've got a christmas present for myselve, as there will be arriving a 410v5 at 23rd at my door!

Looking forward to the built and running it the first time.

Can a V3 be converted to a V5?

If so what parts are needed?

Hi zzztech,

They share only the front end and diffs with each other the hole rear is the same as the new 210f, so for converting the v3, you have to spend about 75% for new parts.
Shocks are different too.

If you want a v5, there is a link in the dex210 thread from an german shop, that sales the 410v5 and the 210f for about 60% off of the standard price, i'm not sure they do international shipping to australia too!?

The DESC410r thread is slow so I thought I would try here. Anyhow does anyone know if any of the V5 aluminum front and rear gear box braces/bulkheads as well as the V5 aluminum 2 piece sliding motor mount and aluminum center gear diff/slipper bulkhead will directly fit on the Durango DESC410 series of 4wd scte? I can quite tell if they do however it appears there may be a chance.

Thank you as any help is greatly appreciated

anyone use the alloy diff locker that durango sells? If so, how well does that work? I was thinking of trying a slipper only setup on my vehicle (dex410v5) since they seem to be locking them up anyway with 1 million weight. I figure do this on the cheap as I have the part and the full slipper conversion is $$$.

I was looking at that as a tuning option too. One thing definitely comes to mind though. Having driven the Associated B44.2 and B44.3 back to back with close to box stock setups, (center slipper Vs center diff) the 44.3 noticeably felt quicker to settle down and lock in coming out of a high speed turn where you're at 100% throttle as soon as the car straightens out. I had described this feeling back in the 210V3 thread where the car oscillates quickly left and right searching for traction but is locked on a straight line. The center slipper car (locked diff) had more of a tendency to break loose and require throttle modulation than the center diff car, which requires very little input from me other than to keep the throttle pinned, allowing the car to work. I wonder if the 410 will have the same tendency?

Sweet! I picked up one of those Kuhler bodies as well. I have a hunch that I'll be finding a V4 in the near future and I wanted to see the body first hand. Sleek! These bodies look like they were designed by Ferrari or something.

wonder if that is why the slipper was preferred on carpet due to a higher traction.

odd question, does anyone know if these gears:

TowerHobbies.com | HPI Racing Diff Gear Set

would work on the dex410 line up or vice versa? Basically, if these fit fine, I am hoping then the composite durango gears:

MOULDED CROSS SHAFT AND GEAR SET (3 Diffs) from Team Durango, TD310290

would work fine too.

That makes sense to me. Given that Durango as a company seemed focused on Euro high grip/rugs, that explains why all the American cars went away from center slippers to straight gear diff. Durango makes a slipper eliminator for the 410 series don't they? I would imagine the composite gears need to be swapped for the earlier metal ones when removing the slipper. If I keep getting fought every inch of the way with the 410, I may try to mirror the basic setup if my AE wheelers to see if that brings it closer to where it needs to be to run effectively on outdoor tracks.

So I might have missed it but has anyone found other bodies to work on the v5 as the stock is impossible to find ?

Not yet but there are shops in Germany that have them in stock. Shipping wasn't horrible but it took three weeks. Just get your Google Translator fired up and type in the part number, then go on to like page three of Google results, look for shops ending with .de in the web address. I had to get help for the DEST bodies but the V5 wasn't too hard to find. Stateside? Nope.
