I know I treat my car far worse than you treat yours and I'm still on my original towers from the very batch of 410s.... Which had a X12 4.5T in it most of the time.

yes those lipos are 100% fine i run them in mine on the weekend , 6 minute race put 2250 mah back into them and at $30 each you cant go wrong IMO

ok so as you can see i ran my V3 for the 1st time on the weekend after coming from a XXX4 that i have run this season

ummm 1st impressions is this is awesome honestly compaired to the other buggy i have its not even close , well in real terms over a 6 minute race i was 1 lap and 20 seconds better of with the V3 compaired to the older buggy

remember this was my 1st time out with this car had not even had a practice run and went straight to better times then i could get with other

3 races and won every race by well over 20 seconds and put the the fastest times the track has seen

people are saying you dont need the big bore shock but on a outdoor track thats a bit rough this V3 just soaked up the bumps as if they were not there and the steering is like OMG it went where ever i put it , a mate who drives the AE had a drive at the end of the day and i am pretty sure he will have 1 from santa as well ready for the new season

overall very impressed with quality and even more impressed on how it handled

set for the V3 was Randy Pikes with 15k front and 10k rear oils and shocks i went 6 hole pistons F/R with 37.5 F and 32.5 R losi oils

tyres were hole shots in soft on front and super softs on the rear , i even had rebars to put on but felt i did not need more grip

as you can see be my signature i am a Losi fan but honestly they will need to make a good 1/10th for me to change away from this.

p.s. there you go JPM flame away buddy as i know you will , but you know i want the best there is to race with

oh yeh i was only running a 10.5 tekin set up and the other buggys were all running 7.5 and 8.5 so it shows big motors dont all ways help

6.5t or 8.5t on a larger track. 10.5t if you run on a very small track. I run 8.5t and it is very versatile

i am running a 10.5 with timing and its every bit as fast as the 8.5T that i race against

not sure if the guys have timing advance on there motors but i know i do on the 10.5 but it puts the power to the ground nicer on the surface that we run on right now

What pinion do you run? I ran a 10.5 with a 27/28? and smoked it! Dropped down to a 7.5 (20) it was to much for my track and style. Then an 8.5 (20) and I like it, still a little to much. Now I am going with a 9.5 and 22 pinion. When I smoked the 10.5 it was plenty fast in my lazer but seemed the durango was to heavy. Maybe I just had to big of a pinion???

EDIT
now 24 as i have ben told

(23) 24 mate and it was a hot summers day and motor temps were 65ish deg C

was plenty fast enough even against the 8.5 etc down the straights

approx 30 second lap times so not a small track

I have a question for the people that went from a 410[r] to a v3 or to big bores .

Did you change anything for setup ? I have a V3 coming this week and wanted to see if much change was needed .

Hats off to Tobamiester! The guy PM'd me about a hard to find part I was looking for, bought it, shipped it to me, and charged me exactly what it cost him to purchase it and ship it. What a guy. Thanks a lot.

You are a true ambassador to the sport. If you ever need anything let me know. Thanks again.
