The full 2010 Spec kit contains more aluminum parts, TI turnbuckles, alum side pods ($100 right there), etc. while the V3 has more plastic components but does have the big bores, and other small changes.

I have a 2009 spec and still run it to this day so in all honesty you can get ANY 410 kit and upgrade it to you liking. With 410R kits going to $270 thats a great deal and you can upgrade to suit your track. You don't need big bores, I actually have both for a tuning option.

Right now not much word on V3 kits coming back in stock. I would grab a regular 410R and upgrade as needed.

Waiting for a V3 is worth the wait. Unless money is of no importance. The big bores and newer wheel type which will be easier to find in the long run are worth the wait. There are also a few plastic peices that have had material added in order to strenghten key areas so that the AL peices are not needed. These include the rear diff hoop, rear bulkheads, rear diff inserts, and new rear hubs with a larger outer bearing. The towers also have a few more adjustments then the originals.

Yawp. But if you need to replace any of those parts you are SOL. Have to bolt on the 2010 stuff until TD can ship the V3 spares . . .

Now that sounds like its worth the wait if it will make the car more durable out of the box
And what about running a 13.5T motor in it? I'm a novice driver so I"m sure my local track wouldn't mind me running with the 2WD buggies for now.

13.5 is great to start with, most beginners put way to much power in their first cars and then can not drive them. They overshoot jumps and corners and blame it on the cars when they really just have way to much motor. Your off to a good start. You also get the advantage of longer run times and lower temps by going with the 13.5 and track time is THE most important part of learning .

LOL...sounds like me with my Losi SCTE and Tekin Pro4 4600KV. Way to much power for me right now.
So there won't be to much torque from a 4WD system with a 13.5T style motor then? What would be about the right pinion size for this setup?

Anybody? I have not run a 13.5 in this car. I think around 26 would be a safe starting point.

Some great points, I think 25/26 is good w/ 13.5.

I ran an 8.5 to start and it was too much power for my local track and made the car erratic as I grappled with the handling (its already been described as an 'on edge' handling car as it is).
Went down to a Viper 10.5 with a 23T Pinion which was very smooth and allowed me to work on the handling.
Went back up to a 7.5 a couple of weeks ago now that I've got the car handling down and needed a little more speed to hang closer to the fast guys.

Ran it in Dual-Mode, and went up to around 50% on the ESC timing advance to squeeze a little more out of it. Motor ran around 126F after 8min main.

two great cars as well. what kind of surfaces are you running on?

the Tamiya car has gear diffs now, and the kit including them will be coming soon. --i owned one, belts are so smooth.

the K car looks good as well, these three Mfgs are the cream of the crop as far as quality goes.
