I wanna run my suburbs on the front but I'll have to run pin and bearing front wheels.

It comes with both. So you'll have the hexes and pins for the front. I'm only now switching my cars over to the 12mm hexes.

you wouldn't want to run the 12mm hexes that come with the car anyway from what I am hearing. They really should have released it with some steel hexes and maybe looked into some kind of quick change diff setup, even doing some better slipper pads too.

I bought some SC10 blue aluminum Jconcepts hexes last night. I might have to cut the wheel pins some but
they should fit no problem. But I'll probably run pin and bearing for now.
I'll order the aluminum 14 mm rear wheel hexes when I order the car.

Any idea if you can throw the V3 hexes or their steel equivalent straight up on a V2 or V1?

If so I'll have to take the pin and bearing front axels off my old Dex 210 and put them on it.
I guess in the future I'll buy hex front wheels if that's the case.
I have heard it comes with both.

Last weekend I had a chance to run my Durango DEX210V3 at Tacoma RC Raceway for Round 5 of the Northwest Indoor Series. I ran in the Pro Stock 2wd class and was able to bring home 3rd overall in my first big race with the car. This is a medium-high grip track, just a little bit more grip than most Southern California tracks, but not as much grip as, say, SRS in AZ. I'm not a pro driver by any means, but I hope this is useful for someone.

Yeah, they'll fit on the rear without any extra parts but on the front, you'll need new steering knuckles, axles, etc.

I might put Travis Amazua setup on my car and see how it does outdoors.

Don't look like a bad setup at all. Most of my setting are very close to what you are running other than the pistons, oil and springs as I'm running the JP Richards combo for those three things.

Very nice finish overall. Always nice to see what setups guys are running.

I'm new to the DEX210, but wouldn't it be better to run 4 Gear on Mid Motor?

I am running mm4 on grass in the UK. I have found a good setup and it appears well balanced.

People appear to be shifting weight backwards with a crossways battery and mm3 which gives less pitching - very similar to the dex210f.

We have only just gone outside so I am keeping it mm4 until later in the year and plan to test to back to back on grass before heading inside on carpet.

4 gear increase front and rear weight transfer. 3 gear is more neutral. Think it also depends on driving styles and track surfaces. I am going to switch my DEST To 4 gear and see how it feels. Think it is worth trying both to see.

personally on my dex210v2 I liked the MM4 I think a bit more as I liked to let off in turns and have faster rotation due to weight transfer. BUt it could be moreof a setup issue too.
