So I just sold my B44.1 And am thinking of picking up a dex410r v3 for next winter indoor season.. So I have a couple of questions.. What is the difference between the 410r v3 and the 410 v3? What are some good hop ups for the car to give it better durability and performance? What extra parts should I always have on hand? Whats the tallest pack it will except?

Im not trying to be a d#"k but:

I suggest that you have a look thru the last pages, it has been covered a few times since the V3 has been released. If you skip all the complaints about parts being available you will find your answers.

Or someone else can jump in and give you the easy route

I've just about finished my V3 build and I have a concern about the diffs. Do they leak without a gasket installed? I didn't get gaskets in the kit and I am wondering how well the diffs seal and keep the oil in.

use black grease. my v3 started to leak after a few crashes that tweaked the diff housing. using black grease even with old housing seals the leak

No need for gaskets, if you use some black grease or green slime, the V3 has the DNX Shock O rings which are as good as the Kyosho P5 rings we all used in the older v2 kits. Also put a little grease/slime where the gasket "would" be (i.e like a 1/8 diff build) that'll help seal em.

I'll take that advice for the losi scte center diff

On another note, just finished building my v3. Added rear diff loop and Servo saver crank (tresrey). For lipo i ordered from hobbyking and a trackpower pack. The trackpower is 25.1 tall and fits with no issues. For dirt tracks I have a set of calibers and a set of goose bumps. I'm still waiting for a savox servo replacement and hook it up to tekin for some tweaks.
So tires/shock oil/diff oil for carpet? Thanks

Thanks for that help guys.. Thats some good ideas. I ended up making some very thing paper gaskets before I got your replies so now that its all in I might just try it and see how it works... I just put the molded diff house down and traced around it, and a 10 cent piece is the right size for the center circle. Cut it out and place it down in the crown. I guess some grease would help it stay in one spot and wouldn't hurt the sealing either. Now screw the diff together.. The screws will punch the holes for you and I'm pretty certain if you use pretty thin paper that there wont be any build up to stop the seal around the screws. The screwing in of the screw should "scrape" the paper down the hole.. This is all in theory of coarse. Haven't actually powered it up yet but it isn't leaking yet. .

I use Permatex #2 non drying gasket maker on all of our Durango diffs. Works awesome and only costs a few bucks for a tube of it.
