Hey ya'll!!!
I have a fairly new DEX210 V2 and the front wheel axles spin in the hubs so I cannot get the front tires off! It isn't a huge deal right now, but at some point I will need to get the tires off. Anyone experienced this and found a way to get the screw out of the axle without the axle spinning?

Thanks!

I've had this problem before. My solution was to take the axle out of the hub and use pliers/vice/etc to hold the axle in place while loosening the screw holding in the wheel.

Use a hex driver on both sides of the axle, one will come loose and you can go from there with pliers to grip the axle.

The v2 buggy has slightly different geometry compared to the v1, the shocks sit further back.

Yeah we're right forgot about that. Some creative shimming took care of that off-set so I don't need to trash that $35+ tower.

Anyone else seen the ORD FF210 (front wheel drive conversion) for the DEX210?
Just seems very weird to me

From the ROAR rule book - "Vehicles that are driven by the front wheels only are classified as four wheel drive".

ROAR has always done all that they could to limit innovation and creative thinking.

I removed my V2 towers and have them sitting in a box. I hated the changes. They limit the suspension up travel which unfortunately doesn't allow the car to roll very far in corners. This causes the car to wash out. I run the V1 rear suspension but up front I run the V2 rear shocks with white series springs with the DESC210 front tower and V2 front arms. This setup allows for more suspension uptravel and drastically transforms the car in turns on high grip tracks. On hard clay it's like a different car in the corners.

I'm going to disagree on this one... Personally I had to same washing out issues... changed to a CF chassis and it's perfect... I run high grip and low/medium and the car is good on all of it... Lack of flex with the aluminum chassis is ok with high grip surfaces but for all around a CF chassis or composite is the way to go.

I'm not going to disagree on chassis type. I've been playing with composite chassis for a while and happen to love them. However, I always go for super stiff reinforcement. I don't believe in chassis flex except in the loosest and roughest of tracks like old loamy tracks. Try the shock setup. I let the suspension do it's job and the chassis do the job of connecting them together as tightly as possible. Why let the chassis do work that the suspension should be doing?
