the tekin motors are really good.they are comparable to the trinity/epic duo3 series and have alot more rpm then the new reedy sonic series do. a 6.5 should be a good choice depending on track size.the tekin also is pretty easy to setup.

IMO 6.5 is to much unless your on a huge track . I prefer Trinity D3 motors .

Hey guys I'm going to be purchasing a 4x4 buggy pretty soon and I have a couple of questions.
1. For racing do you recommend purchasing the V3 or the 410R and why?
2. Are the wheels for the 410 interchangeable with the 210?

V3 , Because it has a few updates and the aluminum suspension mounts that are needed . The V3 and 210 share the same rear 14mm hex wheels .

Thanks Briguy! One other question. Is there anything else I need to buy, hop ups, or is it ready to go out of the box?

Just my experience, but I ran plastic suspension mounts for one year without any breakages.
I put the aluminum ones on and broke the Rear Bulkhead AND the new suspension mounts on the first race.

I would say it depends on what size track you run on, and the height of the jumps. I only run my buggy on a small indoor clay track and have not had any issues with the plastic ones but the breakages I did incur where on the same track (maybe my bulkhead was fractured before I added the Aluminum ones, or maybe the changes stressed the bulkhead...I dunno). Went back to plastic ones as I just wasted $40.

So my humble opinion would be get the Alum servo saver, Diff hoops , Brass Chassis weight/protector first...

Anyone know the part numbers for the AE ball studs and rpm rod ends? Cant even set camber without the rods popping off this new kit and i tryed the grease trick with the steel turnbuckles but still doing it which is very frustrating for a brand new kit.

This will give you enough to do 1 car and have spares, this is what I did.
Long shank RPM cups
73392 black qty 2
8mm and 10mm TC5 ball studs
31285 10mm qty 2
31284 8mm qty 2

You can also just replace the cups with the Losi ball cups and retain the stock studs.

yes My Desc410R has Losi ball cups. Just make sure they are actual losi cups as the RPM ones fit too tight on the stock ball studs. Thats why I went with the associated stuff on the 210 and 410 buggys. Just easier to find ball cups. Studs can be hard to find as they are metric thread. Standard assoc stuff is not metric so make sure to get the tc5 stuff I listed the part numbers for.
