On the V3 kit with the 14mm hexes, what other wheels can you run?

I can't find the stock yellow wheels in stock anywhere!

Only Durangos with 14mm hexes. You can switch the hexes back to the axles that were on the current Durangos. 12mm hex front and pin drive rear.

Hey guys I'm new to 1/10 scale stuff. I'm getting an 8.5 motor with my dex 410. I run on a 1/8-1/10 out door track I would say a med large track. Am I going to want more motor or higher turn spec?

I run an 8.5 in mine for indoor. Some guys will even run a 7.5 or even a 6.5 on a smaller indoor track--just to give you an idea. If I were you I would run the 6.5 and turn it down if needed. Hopefully there are some guys in here that run the type of track you mention and will share their setup.

Just remember that it is a lot easier to turn a motor down than turn it up!

Danger I was spanking you all last winter with a 13.5 I'm my buggy. Honestly if your not a REALLY good driver you shouldn't be running a 6.5 or 7.5.

Hell an 8.5 is still crazy if you have it geared right. I did some work last winter with that 13.5 redline motor. I think this year I will pick up a 10.5 to play with.

My point is don't think you need a crazy motor to be competitive with a wheeler. If your over shooting every corner your motor won't mean anything.

Haha buddy, your memory is poor for a forum troll ! There is obviously too fast but if I were running outdoor with the Rango--let us say a medium sized track like Rat--I would use a 6.5 but can easily do so since I am a REALLY good driver (as you put it).

We had a Tekin 10.5 with an RS Pro in my brother's DEX and it was really good, but he got to the point where other guys were beating him mainly cause they would pull 4-5 cars on him going down the front straight (125 ft). He would catch back up and be on their back bumper through the infield, only to get motored again up front. We are now very happy with the 7.5 we put in. Great power yet still drivable; the 6.5 we tried was just a bit much for him.

Depends on the track conditions but I reckon it would not turn as much

just finished my v3. Anyone thats going to be running banana pluged lipos I highly suggest you get a lower profile plug. I have to drimel it down some before I race so the body will fit.
