I'm confused as to why this slipper won't grab.
Another thing you can try is to add a 0.2mm shim or two between the gear box and the slipper (check page 27 in the dex210v2 manual to see what I mean). If you still can't get it tight enough, try adding a shim on the side with the spring.

Ok I'll try that. Would a stiffer diff spring help or does it not work that way? This one feels stiff between my finger and thumb but it crushes easily with the little adjusting nut.

That might help. Adding shims would probably do the same thing, at least in the short term.

I'm using Exotek #1294 (DESC210 FRONT STEERING HUBS) and #1513 (DEX210 12MM HEX TITANIUM FRONT AXLES) in combination with RDRP #RDRP0185 (DEX210 Aluminium C-Hub Set) on my v2 without any issues.

One thing you could try too, are the AE HD slipper pads, they are a bit thicker than stock pads, may that helps too!?

Good idea, do you know which part number for the AE slipper pads?

Be sure, you put those two 5x7x0.2 mm shims, parts #709015 behind the first slipper disc, as if it was at the V1, there was only one shim behind and that was the most common problem that the slipper could not get tight enoth!

I remember this problem. From what I recall it was like the pads were too thin.

If you are going to get new pads, I would suggest giving RC Shox a look or message and see about getting some garolite discs from them. The AE ones they have should work too if he doesn't have specific durango ones. I have these for my vehicle and even when running on carpet I had perfect slipper action with zero fade. To be honest even going with a slipper eliminator its hard to tell the difference, it performed that well.

Cool! Based on what you have seen, do see any issue with the stock plastic C-hubs then with the desc210 front steering hubs from exotek?

hope to make some serious headway on getting my vehicles ready for saturday.

Thumbs up

Did get a few runs of practice last night. I was able to try some Kyosho springs last night on my buggy. Ran some Gold rears and White fronts ( I was running AE White front and white rear). Car was very close to the same overall feeling with the rear maybe loosened up feeling just a bit which was fine. I have tons of traction with this car and the Proline Microns I run. After that run I was looking for more rear rotation in the corner so I moved my rear inner camber link to the #1 position on the transmission case (Was running #2) and added 3mm spacers under the ball stud (still in #2 position on the stock plastic hub). Took the car out for my 2nd run and the car now rolls more in the corner and rotates quicker for me through the corner so that is exactly the reaction I was looking for from the car. My overall rear traction is still excellent and I don't see any lack in rear overall traction. I can always lower the inner ball stud if I need more traction but at this time 3mm is perfect.

I have to say, if I setup the other dex210 as the loner, may get it pink wheels lol.

I also picked up the mid motor bulkhead from exotek. looking forward to trying it out.
I have run the 2.4 setup on my B5M and my V3 and honestly as I get new tires I'm going back to the 2.2 setup. I find its much easier to glue up the 2.2 setup and on the track performance I don't see any difference performance wise. I do see the 2.4 pulling off the rim some (especially with new less experienced racers) and guys ripping tires (mainly in the 4wd buggy class). I just feel the 2.2 tire setup feels better to me overall so that is what I'm going back to.

I would take the stock slipper pads off and lightly sand them as they might be glazed over from the continual slipping.

It sounds like your diff is loose to me and not the slipper. Does the car chirp/bark under hard acceleration? If so that is the diff. The slipper slipping will be fairly quiet when it slips. Two totally different sounds as to which one is slipping.
