are there any low profile servos I should avoid in the dex210 that for whatever reason don't fit right?

I would watch out for the new spectrum servo's. They have a heavy rubber plug going into the servo and it will not bend much without damaging the wires. Found out the hard way, lol

cool thanks. Went with a savox 1251MG here. seen pics of it fitting so should be good to go.

Right now, I do have a variety of these "weights" that you bolt to the durango chassis, and I think I still have the weighted bulkhead here too. Curious what are some things worth putting on to the plan b chassis?

Just curious why you want to go with a shorty servo? I haven't had much luck with them in a buggy.

They are a great servo, I use them in all my touring cars. I was just curious why a shorty 1251mg vs like a 1257tg? I'm really not trying to be critical at all by the way, just wondering if there is something I don't know.

was thinking a bit more room if I need it. And as I do rotate electronics between stuff at times I figured having one in the stable may be worth having.

Question, guys, as a quick search didn't yield what I was looking for....

If I set up the DEX as a mid-motor, does that pretty much REQUIRE a shorty pack?

You can still run a full stick pack in mm. It doesn't give you as many battery placement options but it fits just fine.

That chassis you got coming with that vehicle you bought though I think may be oriented towards shorties. Its got kind of a plan B layout to it. Unless you are planning to run the other chassis.

It is, but I think in going to swap back to the stock chassis as soon as I get it. A) helps me to learn the car and B) I'll drive it on stock trim before so I can appreciate the custom chassis more when I switch back.

So i get like two different kind of rear axels, or are the v2 parts, they where updated not in the kit anymore?

Thx in advance
