Very nice!!! I like the paint..

I liked the small bores on my R, but I run on a technical bumpy indoor clay. And I'm hoping the big bores will help settle her down. Plus with all the other goodies the v3 has in the box. Figured the upgrade was a good idea. With towers coupons and "easy pay", it was a no-brainer!!

Thanks. Didn't come out as well as I liked. Messed up the faskmask (trying a different brand). But nothing that can't be made to look nice without some nice decals

The bearings look improved in the v3 kit. I put a full set of Acer Ceramics in mine and a little Tresrey bling (servo arm and rear diff loop). Refreshed the electronics with a new RS Pro (with v2.23). Will see how she rolls tomorrow night

The TI turnbuckles seems like alot of money..but I guess I'm in for $100 in bearings so a little more wont hurt Bottom is covered in AE Chassis guard. Will see how it lasts. I predict maybe one race night

maybe manufactured by 3M. Was packaged in AE packaging. It has an adhesive backing. Just had to cut it out.

TDR330007 Team Durango 1 Rear Hub Set (This part# brings a left and right 1deg oversized rear hub) The product pictures show the old standard size hubs.
You're lucky. The last set I ordered were still the old ones.

Thinking a 4wd buggy may be my next purchase. Considering the v3 now that parts and supply seem to be on the mend. How solid is it?

Also, sometimes I come across a 2010 spec available as lightly used etc. Would you take a 2010 spec over a v3? What are the differences?

DEX410 is extremly durable and very quick. If you can afford the V3 Kit new then buy it. Otherwise a reasonably priced Spec is the way to go.

The Spec was the "Super" kit in 2010 ($650), it had all the available upgrades, including but not limited to Ti Turnbuckles (even for Sway Bars) and the $100 set of aluminum side rails. It lacked the newer options like the machined diff gears and FAT shocks (however many people still run the standard shocks depending on the track).

The V3 has many new improvements the Spec did not, the FAT shocks, counter sunk chassis screws, more camber link adjustment holes, longer center drive shaft coupler, and new "Pill" type anti-squat adjustment system, and TiNi shock shafts. It also uses the new HD ball cups but with steel turnbuckles and the shock stand offs are cheap plastic unlike the metal type found on the Spec. The rear diff holders are also plastic, not alloy like on the Spec. The Spec came with full rubber boots, for axles and shock shafts. The spec also came with machined alloy servo mount and ackerman.

Bearings on the SPEC were absolute garbage!! The V3 seems to have better quality bearings but I would still replace them with a bearing kit anyway.

Another huge change was new 14mm hexes and new rims for the v3. The Spec used a hex front and a pin type rear, but 14mm hexes can be easily changed out on the Spec.

So in conclusion, it's just about parts lists, every thing that works on the Spec will work on the V3 and any improved parts on the V3 will work on the Spec.
