My MIP 1.3 mm wrench came in, winched up those gear diffs, looks good. No spacer shim on out drive feels correct, thanks for the tip guys.

Also, reading carpet setups on Petit RC, many mentions of max droop. Do you think they actually mean max droop or max limited I.e. Screw all the way in.

I'm not sure about max droop on carpet . But im assuming they are talking about limiting the droop just having the screws touch the plate pads will proberty work fine.

I run full droop on our carpet track. I think it helps since we run such low ride heights to help soak up the landings of the jumps. If you limit it to much and are running between 17-19mm ride height and over shoot a jump it will be very unsettled on landing.

Further to Chris Doughty's comments about the DEX210v2 being ahead of its time, I'm still running my 210v1 on carpet and it is still an amazing machine. The 3-gear/4-gear MM/RM tunability is an awesome feature. I found I was losing just a little too much steering with the 4-gear MM and switched it to 3-gear MM. Night and day difference. The car now stays very flat on-power, so I don't lose steering, especially in the slower sections. The adjustability is really second to none.

The 210F has me very excited, though. I can hardly wait to get one, as I'll be running carpet and turf until May, probably.

As for the 410v5, I'm still running an upgraded 410R, lol. It is pretty much a v4 except for the 19 degree hubs and u-joints, but it has been a rock-solid machine and still competes extremely well with all the current offerings. I'm more excited to get a 410v5 just so I can finally build a completely fresh car!

Awesome things coming for us all from TD!

You can sand the diff housing with some 600-1000 sandpaper laying on a flat surface and try the purple, or blue 3x2 TD o-rings, instead of the stock red one, this schould help and Will give you a leakfree diff.



The Blue shock O-Rings for the Dex210V2 in the gear diff ? I been using the Black diff seals and my leaked a decent amount also.

You cant us the shock o-rings from the 1/10 scales for the diffs, as they are 3x2 mm, they are to small.

Default Need 4x2mm P4 for differential.

Micholix is right. Need P4 size o rings for the differential.
TDR330099 Orange orings work well too. I haven't tried the blue ones.

What's the best way to convert the DEX210 over to 12mm hexes? B5 front axles and Exotek hexes on the rear? Is there anything else other than the Exotek hexes? I have their 14mm hexes on my wife's buggy and I hate them.

I actually just keep the Front stock axles one reason is i have a butch of the Durango Front wheels. On the Rear to 12mm hexes Exotek makes are fine they do make the wheelbase a little more narrower .

The B4.1 Proline Rear hexes are wider but it depends on the wheels you use though i noticed with the wheelbase on both hexes.

Look at the Dex210 setup pages on petit RC. Look for "front hexagon" modification, it shows step by step how to modify the front with Kyosho rb5/6 axles that are 12 mm. There is a link on page 729 of this thread Exotek also makes the front axle with hexes built in. Think they are titanium.

For the rear Jconcepts or Proline b4.1 hexes work from what I have read. I believe you need to cut the pin a little smaller to fit the 12mm modification. Might need a few shims. The B5 rear hexes I hear work as well. Was somewhere in this thread.

Good luck.
