That's super RAD!! I'm gonna have to have one of these to go along with my other cars! I was contemplating a KF2 since we just went to carpet so now I'm definitely waiting until this fella comes out!

I like it. One thing that I think I see that I like is the rear wing height. It appears higher up, and less shrouded by the rear shock tower than on the 210. Down low may look nicer, but it's far less effective. It needs to be in clean air. Now if I could just get you to run it a little higher and then run my Raborn Racing low drag, high efficiency carbon wing, we'd be good!

I was finally going to work on a new chassis design for the 210 but I might just wait for this instead. I've got the carbon fiber blanks with the nose kicks ready to go.

These blanks should be able to do 4 chassis each. They have different kick levels. 20, 25, and 30. The material has been laid up to create as little flex as possible from a single piece. This way I should be able to keep bracing down to a minimum for weight reasons. The material could be laid up to allow some flex in different directions. There's more to it than just buying a piece of carbon fiber. It's all about knowing the properties of your materials and selecting one based on your needs. I have a few projects right now and had really only planned for the 25 blank to be for the 210.

Made this little conversion for my DEX210 v1 last week, actually did really well this weekend!

It's a bit of a hack but being a college student i'm not complaining since I already had every part it took to do this.

I wish I had time to race at all. Our 1/10 track here is so high grip that slicks work when the track is well grooved in. It's a far cry from the good old days but the facility is nice and it's indoors. I'm more interested in the new 2WD car since it's layout would seem more appropriate. I may unload my 210. I'm not sure yet. I've been at this stage before and not let it go.
