yeah .. probably cheaper to get a mint 2010 and then buy a set of big bores (from the v3).

^^

I run zero hopups on my V3. It's suits me quite well. No problems and hardly any maintenance after several club races and practices.

Aluminum looks cool though.

That's what I'm mulling.

Only thing I really will do is change ballends and cups to HPI/Losi like I did before and prob add the alloy servo saver thing from Tresrey, prob the machined gears and maybe the d joint centre shafts

Just got to scratch the head re Orion R10/Sanwa 451R install if I get the car.

Would prob go with an Orion 7.5 motor

Ran diffs 12.5/7k last time, plan to try something around 5/3k this time.

Hi,

Ok cheers, certainly would save a few .

If I land a 2010 spec, it'll have the titanium turnbuckles, so would just change the ball ends etc.

Just wonder how better/worse it'd be compared with a Kyosho.

Diff ring gears would prob upgrade.

Where are you guys starting at on set up for a fairly tight indoor clay track?

I'm planning to pick one of these up for the fall/winter and so I'm trying to gather some info.

the car is a tank and ready to win out of the box...

Only reason about the alloy sides is I'm looking at a 2nd hand DEX410 2010.

What ever model I end up with, it's a case of making sure drivetrain is solid etc..
With the exception of winter I've had very few issues with my Kyosho. I only mention winter, due to plastics suffering due to the cold.

2nd hand 2010 would be better. 2010 comes with alloy sides alreay so getting plastic would be cheaper. hey if you want my v3 sides ill send it to you. just pay $5.00 for shipping
