Too late. Already ordered the plus 11 chassis from Rev design. I am out of the US now and won't be home for a few months. Anyway, the indoor track I run at is now allowing slicks. What would you guys recommend for high bit clay with slicks. 3 or 4 gear MM. I have 2 buggies, so maybe I will convert the other one with the new chassis that's coming out that was mentioned earlier. I have a ton of exotek upgrades on my buggies already!

Hey all. I have a dumb question. I am converting my dex210 rtr to mid motor. What is the best way to remove the plastic sleeves that are over the outdrives? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

They are clip on, so you should be able to slide them off with a little force.

I used small needle nose pliers. Put the nose in the slot for the drive pin and pull straight out

If you have plenty of traction then I think 3 gear would be more neutral, easier to drive. Less twitchy in front to back weight transfer.

Just gone from 4 gear to 3 gear in mm. Much more front and grip and as said more balanced. Just trailing getting more weight in the rear by moving shocks to the back and adding 25g weight under the motor. Not tried it yet with the changes but was drivable before.

You try the shorty sideways mod? if not, give it a try, you may find the rear grip you are looking for with it.

Personally I liked the feel of the MM4 setup especially when I ran it on carpet due to the weight transfer, but it could be how my driving style is. The 3 gear felt very "numb" to say the least. it took a bit getting used to and I found that i wanted to swap tires for more overall grip if that makes sense.

I am going to start 3 gear though outdoors. still need to sit down with the vehicle and give it the full teardown as I want to solve the whole tranny case binding on my vehicle like others have with shims, etc.

Mm4 have me too much understeer in exit, I have noticed much more apex/corner speed with mm3.

Wasn't undriveable on mm3 but was kicking out at the rear when trying full throttle. its on grass which is medium grip (i think)I think the change to shocks and weight should sort it. However I have sideways mid in mind as the next step - starting to look like a b5m or 22 3.0!

Someone with a 3d printer should print some side pods to mount shorties sideways.

Default Aluminum CVD's for Stock?

Looking to add a bit of punch to the 210 in stock! Does anyone make aluminum CVD's for the DEX210? MIP or someone else??? Thinking it will help with acceleration and reduce the weight which is a win win!

Or are you guys using the CVD's for the B5M possibly or the 22 2.0 or 3.0?
