"The new features on the DEX410v3 are:
Big bore shocks - more consistent on rough tracks due to the larger volume of oil.
Gold shock shafts as standard – super smooth Ti Ni coated shock shafts.
New ‘Kuhler’ Body – increased space inside the body and improved air flow to the electronics
New RR suspension arm brace – allows the rear squat to be altered using moulded inserts.
New ‘Fine Tune’ shock towers with finer adjustment for the upper mounting positions and more rear camber link positions on the rear tower.
New HD Ball Ends used throughout – tighter fitting and less likely to pop off during a collision.
14mm Hex hubs – new hex hubs and wheels provide stronger and more reliable wheel fitment.
Changes from the 2010 kit to bring a more cost effective buggy!!!Durability IS NOT sacrificed with these changes :)
Plastic side rails are used in place of the aluminium side rails.
Plastic servo mount is used in place of the machined aluminium one.
Plastic rear gearbox inserts used in place of the machined aluminium parts.
Plastic middle bulkhead used in place of the machined aluminium part.
Moulded upper shock mounts with steel screw.
Revised rear bulkhead and rear gearbox hoop to improve strength in these areas.
Steel turnbuckles used in place of titanium turnbuckles.
Shock and drive shaft boots removed from the kit.
Some of these changes have been made following feedback we received from drivers of the out-going model. After listening to our team drivers and our customers we feel that not all of the machined aluminium parts are required in the kit, so changing these to plastic has helped us bring out a better, but less expensive buggy.
We will still be producing the machined aluminium parts, rubber boots and other option parts for this kit to allow people to upgrade their models should they choose to.
The second round of the German 1/8th Buggy Nationals were held from 2-4 September in Welden, Germany. Jörn Neumann showed his current form once again as the newly crowned 10th off road European Champion took another win. Jörn reports on his victory:
Friday saw 5 Rounds of controlled practice take place. The track was totally different to normal tracks. You need a lot of power for the long straight. The track surface was 70% concrete and the rest Astroturf – very high traction. In practice I tried different tires to get a good combo for both track parts. Then we put a thicker front sway bar in to make the car easier to drive. After that the car was really good. After the practice Hupo and I could manage the same laptimes as Daniel Reckwardt. On the next day were again 2 controlled practices to reseed the groups for qualifying.
We had 5 Rounds of qualifying. I had problems in the first Round and made only a few laps. Hupo was 2nd place only 0.4 seconds behind TQ. In Round 2 and 3, we finished 2nd and 3rd. The 4th and 5th Round was very good for me with TQ both rounds. In the end we were both in the semi final, starting first and second.
On Sunday were the finals and our semi final was 20 minutes. Hupo and I pulled away from the field. We were both in an easy bump up position, but then Hupo´s throttle servo broke. I won my semi, to start 2nd on the grid for the main final.
The main was 40 minutes. I made a small mistake in the second lap and Martin Bayer took 2nd place. Daniel was 2-3 seconds in 1st place. I pushed very hard to overtake Martin, he made a mistake and I was back in 2nd position. After that I close the gap to Daniel and we both battled for the lead. He made a mistake and I was in the lead. From that point on, I pulled away to a 9 seconds lead. I made no more mistakes and after the 40 minutes I crossed the finish line in 1st place to take the win. Daniel was in 2nd place and Hannes Käufler in 3rd.
