Sorry for the confusion- copy pasted from Tower. It is in fact the DEX410v3, NOT the R.

What does that car have that the non r version has except the front uprights? Just ordered a 410v3 from amain for $199 and new to this car. Not sure if I should pick that car up or wait for my new kit. Thanks.

everything yellow/orange is an optional part, if you like upgrades it will save you a lot of cash

I like to use the 12mm hubs so I can use more common wheels like the Jconcepts inverse or regular TLR or B4 rims. The J Concepts inverse is the best rim out on the market in my opinion. It's a two piece rim thus has no exposed ribs to catch mud which means your tires are balanced at the end of the race same as when you put the car down.

PS, perhaps your in the wrong forum if you are looking for truck info. This is the 4WD buggy forum. No worries, just wanted you to know.

Cheers!

Dave

It would be nice to have a 12mm option, but I am not as keen on the inverse wheel compared to one-piece wheels. They are heavier and not as "true" as one-piece. If you race in wet or muddy conditions then you have a very good point!

Don't really care about the V4 I am sure it would be expensive and V3 looks decent enough (at least in terms of the quality parts you get).

Any suggestions on Upgrades? This kit doesn't seem to need a whole lot of upgrades, I just bought alum. wheel hex all around, Gold shock pre loads (looks like the aftermarket shock upgrades for DEX210 also fits DEX410v3). Bought SP Reventon Pro with 5.5R MMM motor. Running 3PM radio and Savox 1256TG High Torque servo.

Thanks.

Hey Rob, what kind of hexes did you pick up? I was thinking that these might work for 12mm setups:

IMO I don't think these Avid 12mm Hexes will fit (I never tried though). But if someone already tried and works I guess I'm wrong.

I bought these (14mm):

Question on the 410V3 in regards to pistons.

I have a track that has largish jumps outdoor dirt blown off can be grippy and has sugar in the corners.

I ran my DEX210 with the stock 6 hole 1.2-1.3 piston with 30wt F 25wt R and it was slapping the chassis everywhere didn't land nicely off the jumps either, I now run a 4x 1.3mm piston front and rear with the same wieghts and it feels excellent, alot of the TLR22 guys run the same pistons.

Now with the 410 I got it second hand and it had 6x 1.3mm F and 6x 1.2mm Rear.

I have put 35wt F and 30wt R, now being new to 4wd I am going to have to learn how to set these up a bit differently.

the shocks have very little pack with these pistons and even dropping from 6 inch's it chassis slaps the ground.

Now others guys that run in the 4wd class chassis slap nearly every jump is this a norma thing with 4wd buggy?

Question is what are common piston and weights uses in 4wd ?? Going off all the setup sheets on PetitRC its either 6 hole 1.2-1.3 or 2 hole 1.5-1.7.

Last bit of info this is for Stock 17.5 motor class

Hmm, I have never had this issue before. Usually have to dial out steering with my cars. What are running for tires?

I put 4 hole 1.3 all around in mine and run 35F/30R oils and the front feels good, but the rear has too much pack. Gonna try 6x1.3 - 30wt for the rear tomorrow to see how it feels. I do slap if I over shoot the jumps but if I downside it no problems.
