Thanks. I have looked everywhere for these and the aluminum version. Nothing. I think I need to check out my slipper as it might be too tight and tearing up the wheels and drive pins.

It's not an issue if you are not hitting things.

Use AE T3 drive pins and use AE B44.1wheels. No more issues. The pins are shorter and slightly larger in diameter making for a better press fit.

I have not had a problem with fit--just shear. I have tried the shorter pins for the B4 and those were the ones that sheared--not the stock Durango crazy long pins. I have not had a problem in the past but that car has sat since last December so do not have things dialed in yet.

Has anyone got experience with the Tresrey rear hubs, what's the best to buy 0 or 1 degree offset?

I'm using the 0 offset plastic ones and like the handling of it, I haven't tried the 1 degree ones yet, is there much difference in handling?..

most mod drivers moved away from the B4/B44 pins because of the reasons above. try

1. TD pins TD310135
http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD310135

or
2. Hot Bodies pins HBS66581
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-17x11mm-10Pcs

The HB part comes in a pack of 10x pins for under $2.

Thanks bud! I will give those HB pins a try as well . . .

The hex just makes so much sense and am not sure why they did not go this route originally--just like the front .

Prolly to ease the interoperability with B44 owners and such (albeit you had to trim the silly long rear pins TD gave us).

I'm torn between the old and the new right now. Can't get Old Rear White wheels anywhere (backordered), and have plenty of wheels I don't want to give up on, but buying new tires with the old wheels (or B4/44 wheels) seems a waste right now. My LHS stocks the new wheels (albeit in yellow) but not the new hexes.

TD parts availability is kinda sparse in certain areas. I can't get a TD 87T Spur anywhere either, and most of the v3 parts are backordered.

tobamiester,
you can use AE spurs. just use a reamer and ream v-e-r-y slowly to ensure consistent diameter on both sides.
i'm using one of them on my dex410.

Yeah, it is a bit of a mess right now. I am not sure what most V3 or DEX210 owners are gonna do. Our LHS is MHOR and has a lot of in-roads to all the suppliers being that they have been around so long (25 years of indoor offroad R/C this year!). They have all the stock from last year but nothing is being distributed for spares from TD for the new stuff. I love TD, so do not get me wrong, but there is something a little backwards about this whole ordeal . . .

with the current delays and Lee Martin helping Tamiya people at our track over the weekend, I'm leaning towards cancelling my V3 now and just sticking with the TRF511 for now.

This is the reply I recieved about setting up a tip page for people new to the cars

As for your question... The only correct way to do it is to get the person who made the first post in the thread to take charge and edit the information in his first post.

There are no provisions for us to go an change who the first poster was, so thats the only way to get the information in the first page like you're wanting to to do.

The other option... Which we frown upon unless there is a majority who want to see it happen... Is close the old thread, and have one of you guys start a new one with the information in the first post.

-David

So, if anyone has went through the trouble of writing it up, foward it to the person on the first post and hopefully they will change it.

I'll go ahead and go one step further... Since I don't want to see this thread shutdown to start a new one.

IF you guys can't get ahold of the first poster... I will check with the higher ups and see if it'd be OK for me to edit the first post in this thread.

I just don't make a habbit of going around editing peoples posts unless they need it because of language or whatever... So I'd have to have the backing from the higher ups before I would do it.

I'm not as active here on RCTech as I used to be lately because of school, but PM me and let me know.

Chris... You should be able to get ahold of me through Mike or catch me at Smac if you can't reach me via PM.
