Nice! I keep waffling on the carbon chassis. I need a new chassis soon but do not know if the carbon is what I want. You need the aluminum side rails and the protective film stuff it seems. I like my Rango throwin' sparks!

Kinda sad to admit this, but we have only had protective film on Cush's car for two weekends..... I'll say this though- the cf chassis is tough, little sign of wear and it's seen plenty of use. I actually buffed it before I put the chassis protector on it a while back and it looked like new, but after one run the film was peeling and I just took it off. Maybe some dialed vinyl with some logos on it that peels easier than the film would work better.

Help me understand--run the carbon chassis w/o chassis protector? I just wonder about the chassis sticking when you bottom out with or w/o the film. Not a problem??

Default V3 Servo saver

I am assembling my V3 kit and the screws which go down through the servo saver posts appear to be too short. Page 29 of the manual calls for m3x5 screws but the steering brace appears to have a raised edge which is different from the manual. Anyone else see this?

Default Shameless plug :)

Any of you guy's wanting to protect your chassis of choice... contact a buddy of mine "Bugle"... he makes undertrays + bumper .... had one on mine (see pic post 24) since day one, went to put a new one on after 1.5 years; chassis polishes up as new... not a mark on it.

Doesn't stick any more than any other chassis slap does.

Yeah, Speed Passion is a huge tackle. You need a micro sized reciever in order to keep things straight. Lets see some pics when your done. Not too many people have posted speed passion setups. I saw Jorns, but no real detail. I was thinking making the switch to speed passion on my 410, as my 210 is all speed passion. May hold out for the new stuff to come out though

Pistons, I run stock 6 hole w/ 35f/30r. Most guys are running 4 hole. Petit setup's are a nice way to check out some setups. http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...ngoDEX410.html

Here is Justin's setup with the Fat Shocks

http://www.tresrey-usa.com/tresrey-setup-sheets/

We all run Tresrey/SP ESC/Motors and it take some time to get it all in and looking nice. A micro reciever is almost a must. But once its in you'll be happy

Been runnig my V3 couple week now. Lovin it. Had to replace front shock tower due to marshall error. I just noticed that the plastic side pods were cracked where it holds the batterys in place. Anybody else have this problem?

Yup. They both broke off my DEX. But the battery holds in just fine with a little foam (which I have in the rear, I guess moving my pack about 3mm forward.)

23/87 to start. Ran that with a Viper 10.5/RSpro, with some timing advance in Dual Mode. Only ran 126F after 8mins. You could gear up from there.
