Anyone know if this would work on the DEX210v2?

https://tboneracing.net/96115-tbr-t-...rb6-ready-set/

We need to have something on the front shock tower when racing on carpet and I'm looking for something thats a bit cleaner and that would last longer than a soda bottle.

hmm, you could contact them to see if they could offer it uncut as far as drill holes if they don't have some lined up, you could then drill your own. they seemed open to working with me on things I requested for changes to a current item to get it to work with what I needed.

I'm not using Traxxas cups......I'm using the dingo cups because they snap onto the shock shaft..............only using Traxxas ball ends because they are better and give more droop in the rear


I will post pics of my v3 rear motor as well as a video on the track we race on........no indoor high bite bs lol its a 1/8 scale track

Default Tyre Wear

Running schumacher mini spikes in yellow compound on grass - which is now wearing out on the acceleration areas. One thing I've noticed is that the tires are wearing in the middle only. Is this a good thing?

Does this mean I have the static and camber gain correct? If i run a squarer profile tire will I be able to generate more forward traction and side bite?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Fred that's what I was thinking and the way we do the big car. Just didn't know if there was a different way on these.

I knew it was too good to be true. The DEX210v3 body has gone from late September back to Order Pending over at Tower. At least the DEX210v2 body is still on for late October.

If I ever get to talk with are sales rep from Great Planes I will grill them about the Durango stuff and whats going on with it. Funny how when I have questions then never call but use to call be every week. They must know I want to hammer them on a few things and Durango stuff is just one of them.

guess I am lucky that I have a spare unpainted body sitting here, cab forward +8mm style.

I am thinking I may still run with the whole plan b chassis for now unless someone is wanting a package lot that would include that body too.

What are some opinions on the durango alloy rear hubs? I have those here, but may sell those too unless can get some good opinions on them along with some other items I won't use.

yeah

Looks like JConcepts has an Xray XB2 S2 body on the way. At least for my plan B chassis, the stock XB2 body looked to fit great. wonder if this could fit great on the exotek setup as well?
