If you are talking about your radio (servo reverse) it really depends on the ESC and radio. Some ESC like it when you reverse this setting, some don't.

As for the car, you shouldn't need to set the ESC or motor to reverse. If you do, either you are running the gears wrong or the motor plate is on the wrong side. MM4 is 4 gear mid motor with motor plate on driver side (left). MM3 is 3 gear mid motor, passenger side (right)

The track star is a decent motor for indoors. Just run a bit of turbo (not boost) about 10 degrees so your top end is comparable to the 8.5.

Spare parts? The car is really strong. I highly doubt you would break anything. If anything, I would suggest the suspension holders as they take a licking and start to develop slop over time. Drive pins for hexes. They are not the clamping type and you can easily loose them. Also get some extra rear wings. Spare ball cups maybe. And the small bearing near the slipper. That is the smallest bearing in the gearbox and it tends to go first.

If you want to go overboard, you can get front and rear arms, and shock towers.

I think I just realized I put my mm4 setup back together wrong.

But the Manuel on the V2 edition shows the Mid motor 4 gears on the drivers side with the motor plate/slipper clutch on that side also .

In 3 gear (MM or RM) the spur gear should be on the right side. In 4 gear (MM or RM) it should be on the left.

Maybe we shouldn't use driver side. LOL
For those in the UK or Asia, it's the opposite way.

It is the left of the car when looking at the rear of the buggy for MM4.

Yea i was Looking at alum inner suspension blocks anyways . And Alum clamping hexs from Exotek 14mm . Bearings yea also .


I ran the track star motor on my T4.1 but never added timing since my Novak GTB esc doesn't have turbo or timing could do Manuel timing on the motor though .

Get the updated arms before they go out of stock for six months again. Reason why I switch to AE. Durango parts support is the absolute worst in this industry.

Does it have to be on the left for RM4? I just reversed my esc. Car felt good but maybe a little off? First time rubbing anything other than 1/8th in a while.

If you are running 4 gear and the spur is on the right, you are running your motor in reverse.

If you reverse the motor direction on the ESC and you have manual timing +++, you might be getting less power in forward than full reverse unless you turn the timing the other way. Most motors have adjustable timing, but some do not. And if you can't put it at 0 timing or reverse the timing you are just making yourself at a further disadvantage.

It's better you have the motor plate the right way around.

I think we just talked about this a while back but I somehow failed to save the model number etc. What snap ring pliers do you guys like for the differential cir-clip?

These ones?

No there isn't a sway bar kit for the 210. But even Jorn doesn't run sway bars on high traction carpet and still wins a lot of the EOS indoor races.
