I would've been better off letting it collect dust....I just opened up a can of worms.
If the body had fit, I would've been good to go.....BUT....if I'm gonna have to start buying aluminum chassis', eh...why stop there.

It will fit in nice with the rest of the crew
Sorry so of topic...but Nick what wheels do you have on that gold pan?
Are they 2.2" ? and did they fit the bearing front and that odd 3/16 taper rear without mods?
Thanks in advance Nick.

The wheels on the gold tub are from DHawk.....He has an Ebay store...."Dhawk Racing"....Price is right...n once in a while they'll go on sale for like10-15 bucks less. (he aldso has a bunch of anodized parts)
Yeah,theyre 2.2 and a direct fit for the Worlds Car....3/16" in the back.
Only "problem", on the set i have at least is that the bearings in the front wheels should have fit a lil tighter. The fit is a lil on the loose side...
I think im gonna get his stealth tranny case...looks pretty nice with the "rc10" inscription.

.................

yeah, definitely has become an addiction.

But from all accounts, the dex is pretty awesome so basically ive done it a disservice by having never ran it n had it collecting dust .....Might as well give it some love..only problem is that love can get expensive...

.....and then that new RC8 coming out in a couple months looks rather appealing...
....and i could use a truggy
.....plus that Serpent c0bra 811-be 2.1 that just got revised the other day has caught my eye...
Its a dangerous path.

yeah, im goin' broke.

i guess that doesnt do me good in either case being i have the composite chassis.

That was a lil bit of a bummer. i really like that cab back body.
(not to mention i was hoping to throw the electronics in it n take it out for a spin later today)

Now im in a bind....Do i get a different body for 20 bucks or just spend the extra 30 and get the aluminum chassis n side pods??

Will the Silencer fit the compoite chassis??

If you want a V1 chassis shoot me a pm, could have that and some other V1 specific upgradesa available too I don't need.


Had a great day running the Dex210 I have on carpet in onroad mode. Reminds me every time I do get the drive the vehicle why I like it so much. For a bit I was thinking of going back to AE and the new B5M lite as it appears stock 1/10 2wd buggy is going to be the in thing, but i will keep this around longer and see where it can take me.

I did have one issue, my vehicle came with this 7mm hex headed screws for the wheels to bolt to the axles, the fronts. But one of them decided to snap off inside the axle. I dremeled a slot to get it out and it got me through the day. I like that setup, but not sure where to buy it?

yeah that is what I went to afterwards, I was just curious as that is what my vehicle came with. It was kind of nice to have the same tool basically for front and rear, but not a show stopper, and seeing how easy that broke off in the axle, I'll probably do the same

Default Setup w/17.5

What would be a good outdoor starting setup with 17.5 gearing too?
Tires to start goose bumps?

Thanks for this tip. Just ordered the truck/sc steering knuckles. Will pop in some old steel B5 axles.

Thx!

For gearing I'd start at 32/69 and go from there. I run 35/66 when I run stock. As for tires, what do other locals run?

Is anyone running any of the aluminum c-hubs on their 210. I know Tresrey has a set that is fixed @ 25* castor and RDRP has a set that is 1mm narrower on each side. Not sure which ones to use. How will the narrower front end affect the buggy? Is the 25* castor norm? Also on the aluminum rear hub carriers is there an advantage to the top monuted camber links? Thanks in advance.

New to the sport and need some help please. When changing to the exotek rear hubs and the rdrp c hubs on the dex210 do any spacers need to be added and where? How do the spacers affect the handling of the buggy?

Thank you

Where ar you guys finding really small spur gears that are not avids?

We opened up some practice for stock buggy class and Dinos setup for outdoor felt really good on my DEX V1 which is using the Dime chassis

The main issues I had were:

- not enough gearing range, was running 34 / 69 and felt like I wanted a bit more top end
- Track conditions went watered would cause front droop screw perches to pack and I would loose travel on the front suspension, do people do a mod here?
- WHERE ARE YOU GUYS FINDING the 25 Degree caster inserts? I have the right part # NIB but no "zero" insert to get 25 degree caster. was this a new running change?

I would like to keep running the exotek gear cover if possible so finding even smaller spurs would be great.

Here is what the track looks like I am running on for conditions (the video) and current layout (the picture):

+ YouTube Video
