It's going to seem like a different car! You will love it........

I suspect you are right! I was looking at the Schumacher Cat and noticed they have even larger bore shocks so it all makes sense to me. I just look for improvements that make the car easier to drive so hope the BB shocks are one of those upgrades . . .

Hi.

Have anyone made a temporary mod on the V3, so you can use some other brand of front wheel? And if yes, what solution did you come up with?
It sucks that there isnt any wheels to the v3 on the market yet.

I have seen one V3 owner just put on the 2010 front hexes and run the old wheels. No real modification required . . .

That is correct. If you need to use the older hexes you can sue the original 410 hex and use the original 410 wheels and or Losi front wheels.

Our Aus distributor has stock of white 14mm fronts. I'm pretty sure they ship internationally too.

Stormers never does. His theory is if others are offering you a coupon, then they are selling it for too much. Their prices are normally the lowest.

Tried out the 5mm Mod tonite. The car felt noticeably more stable on power down the straightaway, but didn't really get enough track time to conclusively say how it affected the car in the infield. (Had some mechanical issues in the qualifiers and switched back to stock arms for the mains).
Ran on a small, tight indoor clay track. Hope to get some more track time over the holiday weekend.

I am using 12mm kyosho hexs on the front and back of my 410, ground out the side of a metal hex so I could push the pin through and used 22 hexs on the back

Well I tried out the 5mm front arm mod at MHOR tonight and there are a number of pro's and con's to it. Our track is indoor high traction clay with 2 sweepers and 5 180 turns.

Pro's:
-Car is more stable and carried more speed through the two sweepers
-Steering is "dulled down" slight and the car doesn't react to steering inputs as fast, but still turns on a dime.
-More consistant over the whoops section and doesn't seem to get out of shape

Con's:
-Removing 5mm of material make the arms fragile. I tapped a pipe in Q2 while running second and that was it.
-Takes away off-power steering. I may need to adjust my ackerman on the steering plate but running it to the forward position I noticed the car wouldn't turn as tight when I was off power

Right now I'm going to continue to run it with the 5mm mod. I think I may try cutting some arms at 3mm to bring back a little material. I need some more track time with it but initially after running Q1 with standard arms and Q2 and the main with the 5mm arms I like the 5mm mod at this point.

Yeah that was a concern for me, once I'd cut away the 5mm, there wasn't alot of supporting plastic left... I'll definitely give it some more track time over the next week or two.
