On my stock slipper pads I use to use emery cloth and rough them up a little so they would bite better. This use to work well for me.

That is one very nice looking Dingo.

Yep, snug fit but they do fit. Same awesomeness that we saw with them in the sc10 4x.

@DINO_D: "Run the Avid Locked slipper mod" What's the part number on this? I've seen the exotek but I can't seem to find info on this version.

Since stock is SUPER popular at my local track I'm building a stock racer. Super light and perhaps the Exotek slipper eliminator. It is generally a medium to high bite track. Have you also tried the Avid slipper? Better for stock? Supposed to be lighter. I'm currently using the lightened plates from Durango and I use the associated pads with the larger surface area.

Here's the exotek for anyone else thinking about itů

I run my Dex210v2 with a Dimec20 Type B chassis with ESC mounted at the front in MM4 with Shorty pack and a fan my weight is 1590g.

My car has plenty of pace in Stock even with the weight and a 12.3mm rotor if I really wanted to make it the ultimate Stock racer i would do the following

3200ma Shorty battery (50g weight loss)
Shorty servo (25g weight loss)
Ti Screws and turn bukles (20g Weight loss)
Mount ESC in side pod to reduce wiring (10g Weight loss)
Ditch Fan (13g weight loss)
12.5mm torque rotor

Then reduce rotational mass
Exotek Direct spur mount
Alloy top shaft
Light weight outdrives or Gear Diff with plastic internals
MM3 if the negatives of less squat are OK

That would get the car down to a 1500g level.

I haven't felt the need to go that extreme yet becasue in my opinion until I can do 5 min races with 0 mistakes as long as the buggy is similar speed its all driver

+1 I have never felt that the 210 was not a good 17.5 car.

Thanks guys, that was my thought also about it being a competitor but I thought Id ask...would the shorter chassis work better for off road carpet?

All depends , if your track has a lot of sharp turns the short chassis would be better but if the track has lots of sweeping turns than the +8 or a +11 would be better IMO.

I had a +8 chassis for a while but now I'm back to the shorter one. The only time I feel that the longer chassis is necessary is when the track is large and basically long high speed straights connected by a few corners where speed is really the only thing that matters. If the track is actually somewhat creative and not built to appease the no talent rednecks, I like the standard better. A limo really doesn't have an advantage in many places.

The exotek works good as well. But if you are talking about the Avid. It's called Schelle racing now.
http://www.schelleracing.com/Schelle...-Plate-SCH1315

I think the Avid is better for Mod racing than stock using the stock pads. It is a smoother slipper than the stock durango and doesn't glaze. I normally opt to use the AE pads, they are more consistent and last longer.

If you use avid in stock, yes it is lighter but you need the more aggressive red pads or just lock it using the locker. But I only use avid on the mid motor. Its soft gear cover doesn't last in rear motor.

Once i figure out the issue with using full throw on the steering without the steering turnbuckles hitting the shock spring.

I may try out the shorter chassis since the indoor tracks i go to are tight not really big tracks just a small and medium size no sweeping turns really so i cant see a real need for the +8 chassis.

To those that raised their opinion to say that the DEX210 is not a good stock racing car, I'm interested to know why you believe this is the case.

To those that have offered their suggestions and feedback to these guys, Many Thanks.

The DIMEC and DIMEC20 chassis types are the same length and shape as the v2 chassis with sidepods.

Thanks everyone for all the guidance/suggestions for the slipper clutch! What do you think about the following solution?

Thanks Fred, so will the shorter chassis, whether it's the aluminum or dimec work on the v2 car without replacing parts?
