hello all! Well I have read almost the post in here (wow 1071 pages) well prob only read 900ish. I do have a few questions still.
I just bought a 210 v2, I will be running on a med sized calcium clay track outdoor (non roar). Traction is med to high! I got a 17.5 d3.5 top 5% on the way with sp revolution r esc. 81 and 87 spur gear running mm4 at this point. It has a few goodies, CF towers, battery hold downs, gear diff I believe haven't checked that yet but have a extra ball diff.
My question is what pinion should I start with, track doesn't have much top speed stretches (like 2 short ones)
I have the setups from all the sites I've seen posted on here but if you have a better one to base line off pm me I'll give you my email or something.
Other question is are there any spare parts I might need to keep on hand? I do have front knuckles, front arms, tires and rims, body, and front and rear towers.

I haven't broke any of those that you mentioned. Its more loosing wheel nuts, or those pins in the wheel hexes, rear lexan wings. Always have an extra layshaft bearing just in case, and Oh yeah, ball cups.

72/34 seems good for me....81 and 87 spur is for mod motors

I have the artistic ability of a squashed frog, so I need a basic paint theme

I can mess up one color. Painting is definitely not a talent of mine. It's barely even a useful ability.

Who down here has a 210? I'm the only person I know with one. I know several people that had one and hated it. As a result, the mention of a Durango down here will usually result in someone steering you towards a different car. One person I know that had one will always talk highly of whatever he is driving at the time but once he changes will then slam the old car as crap so you've just got to understand his personality.
