I have a trinity d3 7t motor. The only place I can run at is a 1/8 outdoor track that accommodates everything. What pinion should I get?

Thanks!!

I bought my DEX410 used and I'm planning on rebuilding the diffs. I've never had any experince with gear diffs. What would be a good oil to start with on a large, medium grip track? Are there any tips I should know about when rebuilding them, also?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Have a look at the TD site or on petit RC with setups at similar tracks and work from there.
Use a good screwdriver as the small screws can strip easily. Green slime on the oring and use the DNX shock orings

We had this question come up just a page or two back take the time and do some searching.

Any of the of the cars made by good manufacturers will meet your needs and hold up fine.. We chose TD.

One good reason for getting the dex is because it is certainly one of the more durable 4wd 1/10 buggies if not the most durable. All handle very well and there are several personal preferences for choosing one over the other. Parts availability is good but you won't need many.

The fact that it's a bit heavier than some is likely the more common discussed draw back.

Below are just my personal thoughts:

Dex - durable and proven handling. Engineering looks cool. Price for a v3 is a little more than b44.1. A little on the heavier side than some.

Lazer - even more expensive, durable enough and a bit lighter I think.

B44.1 - seems to spend quite a bit more time in the pits getting fixed at my track but parts are easy enough. Some people really have this car dialed and for a tight track it's certainly also a good choice. One thing is you can pick up a used/good condition one for not too much to give this one a try.

Schumacher - handles great, but has belts which has its proponents and detractors. Looks the best with it's carbon and purple! Parts are harder to come by and are more expensive.

x - 7 - cannot buy one . . . yet. Not much is known yet about this one, but you can guess it will be carbon fiber and belt driven.

YZ 10 - . . . just kidding. Yokomo does make a new one, but parts are impossible and the kit is comparable to a Kyosho.


Stick to the first three and you'll be happy. I chose dex because durability was key to me. I wanted something that I would not have to fix too much. My last 4wd was an X-5 (modified xx4) and I spent a ton of time replacing worn out rear outdrives and front arms. With the added run times of lipo and brushless I wanted to be on the track.

So far with the dex, I just take it off every 10 minutes so as not to overheat anything and to give my hands a rest.

What's people's thoughts on the V3 7 months on from it landing etc?

Better / worse than the previous 2010 spec etc?

i still prefer a 2010. after 5months with my v3 i actually added options parts that basically made it a 2010 with big bores. it cost more to fully hop a v3 to be the same spec as 2010. I love aluminum

Alloy sides, stiffen car?

I'm looking at a mint used 2010 spec at the mo. what's essential upgrades/updates?

2wd I'll be running the kyosho RudeBits DB1.

I do, but I don't run the DEX410 anymore. There's not really a 1/10 4wd buggy class there. The most popular classes there are 4wd and 2wd ShortCourse, and 1/8 buggy.
