Hmm, I wonder why Lutz runs an R V3 then? If the differences were that great I am sure he would have the other one. Also, at least you know what you are getting if you buy the new one. Always the unknown with buying used.

Well I ordered the RV3 today. Should have it on Tuesday.

So far I ordered:
-Tresrey Servo Saver
-AKA Vector SS fronts + foam
-Front & rear TD quick shock mounts + pivot balls

I have a Viper VTX10R + Trinity D3 6.5T for electronics. Going to run a shorty.

Still need to know if the 210 rear wheels will work on the 410. They are different part #'s so I'm assuming different offsets?

was thinking the same thing.
imo what he is seeing is a difference in drivers not cars as the 2 are the same car, just the 410 would be more durable.

Just an observation and some personal experience. Been running a 410R for well over 16months, most weeks.
If the mystical V3's were available, I would likely get the R version. Jorn switched back to the stock small bore shocks as I believe he just liked how they felt or made the car feel. I jumped on the bandwagon at my local track (before everyone sold their 410's and became haters) and got Big Bores - but I felt it made the car lazy. I like the edginess of how the 410 drives - alot of folks don't, and thats ok. But the Big bores to me took away the feel of the buggy, so I went back to stockers right away.

The only thing I'd maybe get (from the v3) is the new adjustable hinge pin holders.

Default 410 is coming

So I bought a DEX410v3 on here. I need to order a servo. Does anyone have a recommendation in the Hitec line? I have all Hitec and just want to keep it that way. I will be running an RS Pro / 6.5 Turn. Any other parts to consider? I have seen talk of the Tresrey Aluminum Servo Saver Crank. I also see where people are using the Tresrey Diff loops. Is this like the DESC where the rear is the only one really needed? Are the aluminum rear diff inserts needed? I have been reading this thread on and off for a while, but I would love to hear some recommendations. I need to order some parts asap.

I have the diff hoops on my DESC and I left my DEX stock both diff hoops and servo arm and running all winter never needed either.

The servo saver crank is a great upgrade for sure, and the rear diff hoop is provides piece of mind- if you case a jump with the chassis hard the plastic one breaks fairly easily. I'm a big fan of durability upgrades; breaking plastic parts and not finishing sucks. That said, run smooth, land straight, and don't get hit by another car and any car will finish races without upgrades.

I've bust the rear diff hoop twice, maybe three times, replaced with Tresrey as thats all that was available at the time. So get the Tresrey or TD one.
Front busted once but I replaced it with a stock one and its been fine ever since (over a year I'd say).
I run the plastic diff inserts since I got the buggy. Zero issues. I've spent the $40 I saved on Ceramic Bearings

It should work if you have a micro esc. If its the same size as a SP GT2.0 pro than pretty much any "newer" 2.4 reciever can be shoe horned in.

Without looking up the specs the Venom is the same as the Hobbywing 120A isn't it? I've got the HW120A in mine with a Sanwa RX451 receiver.
