by switching to the front 12mm spindles, either exotek or the b5 version, u have to run the st or sc hubs. the st/sc hubs put the spindle farther back and up. what does that do as far as setup and handling?

If I remember correctly, the ST/SC hubs put the axle in the '3' position. It's less aggressive than having the axle further forward, according to TD's insert article http://www.team-durango.com/ttt-arti...rticle_id=4518

I used the sc hubs and axles to run hexes and it works fine. I think the axle ends up where most would want it anyway.

I think so too.... Grab yourself some truck hubs and B5 front spindles and you're done. I use 4 spacers just like you run 4 trailing... It's perfect

And Pinion gearings for:

The ST and buggy classes run a 13.5 blinky / open 17.5 class (it's the same class - they run against each other). Any idea on the gearing options for these

2) 13.5 blinky

or my other option

3) 17.5 open
I race also with 13.5 blinky (carpet outside) and use 87 Spurgear, 28 Pinion so it's a 8.07:1.
There is no bigger Pinion possible at that point. For next time I will get me a smaller Spur about 80, so there is more space for other gear ratios. The Motor gets about 60 degrees Temperature at this Point and the Buggy is MM3 build.

For 13.5 Blinky, I would try 69/26 as a starting point. For an idea where to start with gearing, check out http://durangofansite.com/main.php?v...0&page=gearing

Sweet thanks guys.

I have read that 17.5 boosted is faster than 13.5 blinky... Deciding if I want to mess around with that. I do like the simplicity of blinky.

I could not tame my DESC for the life of me last year. Thinking of switching it to rear motor. Is rear motor really that slow on carpet compared to mm?

thanks for the link. it's very informative. I bought the buggy used and it looks like the front on mine was not in the stock location. I'll switch it and give it a try.

Hi there, did you manage to find a body? If you found a body please let me know where.

The v1 body doesn't fit the on the v2 chassis and I tried finding a v2 body but it seems that nobody in the world has them in stock.

A friend of mine is selling me a v2 spare body surplus to his needs but I'd like to get one more.
Cheers

Jconcepts still makes a body for the 210, I believe this is the body that Amezcua runs on his 210: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXBWVT

My wife has that on her dex210v1. I don't think it will fit on the dex210v2 with its +8mm chassis

You are right, the extra 8mm and the shape of the side pods (smaller on the v1) would make it unsuitable for the v2 chassis.

Has anybody tried the v1 side pods on a v2 aluminium chassis? Maybe that would work with the concepts body??????

Thanks guys

Maybe a little extra cutting to make it fit then?

The holes for the side pods on the v2 chassis are in different positions compared to the v1.

HAHA touche, well I concede I just noticed that's the body he runs. I haven't tried it yet so I don't know first hand how he did it. Especially with the side pods be as different as they are.
