Sounds like the 410R is not the one to get. Should i wait till i can get a V3 or a spec?

The same one that's listed for 399 on their site? Yeah right! Where do they sell the specs at a decent price?

i would wait.. an R with about another $200-$300 thrown at it would be about in line with the V3 big bores, springs, carbon brace and few alum upgrades w/ 14mm hexes but definately easier to just buy it in one kit

So the V3 is the one to get? That sounds more sensible than upgrading and modding it all. Is there really any more advantage to getting the spec?

no you'll spend more than the price of the V3 and still not have all the new stuff..
V3 has all of this over the spec:
plastic side pods, big bores, new rear hangers, hexes, new shock towers, Kuhler body, new drive shaft and outdrive..

i would just wait.. trust me, i hate waiting, im way more of an impulse buyer. but waiting it out will save you at least $150-300. $400-600 if you buy the spec.

why not just wait and buy once. and i'm sure your wallet will appreciate it as well

I would buy a 410R and upgrade as needed. You can get an R for $250 to your door, buy things as you need them.

HD Ballcups - from what I hear almost worse at popping off than the stock ones
14mm hexes - You'll never find enough supply of wheels.

Some of the smaller things (rear toe block, revised shock towers) aren't really deal braker's in my book. Hell I have a 2009 spec and have upgraded it along the way. There are plenty of people running the 410R's with great success.

Good point. I think people will find by the time they are done upgrading for their liking, driving style and track you will have a hybrid of all the versions.

Now most buy the aluminum Treasey diff holders. I have 3 durangos so I didnt want to drop that kinda cash so I Macgyver'd a retainer to hold the top of the ring (epecially in the back diff) from moving forward. Since the battery retainer is held on by diff retainer it all flexes forward especially when braking or lawn darting(happens ) Bad design for sure but with 10 mins in shop you can build retainers.
Also the drive shaft pins seem to love to come out. Do not use durango thread locker-use loctite red or similiar just know u will have to heat it to remove. Clean all parts with contact cleaner(motor spray) and dry before loctiting. Put a slight flat spot on pin where set screw will hit. Make sure set screw hits that during assembly. Finally super glue retainer ring durango supplies over cvd and go drive it!!

I personally like Ryan lutz's setups on Lutzinator.com with heavier diff fluids as it makes car smooth out and less twitchy. Very durable after you fix all the things mentioned in last few posts. Good luck!!
Can you post a pic of your diff retainer fix.

When V3 parts are ready the new rear hoop is thicker plastic so it will be a cheap fix.

Please remove that pic!

And I am sorry for the earlier statment about the spec kit, I thought it was a obvious joke.

If I do a tips thread, can someone tell me if I am able to delete posts from it once I have added peoples suggestions.

Yeah this is less than helpful. I am always amazed at the level of helplessness on this site. Good luck folks! I hope you can tear it up at your local track!

Are you referring to the pics I posted showing diff ring retainer? If so why do you want it removed?
