good stuff. Looking forwarding to hearing how you like the chassis. Will you be able to take any vids and what body are you running again?

For you guys using the revolution zero bump steer steering link, how many shims did you go to on the steering arms? I think I have 2mm from what I recall, but noticed that the ball stud with slightly contact the a-arm at maximum steering throw with max droop up front (shocks on the inner position on the a-arm). When I went to outer position it was fine though.

Quick question. what's up with the front a-arms for the 210v3/21F? They are marked as "unavailable" everywhere. I just got my "F" car and cant get spare arms. Can I use the gullwing arms from the original 210? Or whats my options? I had a v3 and broke the fron arms twice where the droop screw goes in. Im not racing it until i get at least a spare set.... this sucks...

I don't recall anything preventing the gullwing a-arms from being used on the Dex210F when I had it as its basically just the front end of the dex210v2/v3 anyway.

Yeah that does suck they are out of stock, wonder if something new is on the way from durango since the dex210v3 is out of stock too.

Again!? If I remember right, they were back ordered last winter too.

At this point, Durango might as well admit that they aren't interested in 1/10 racing anymore.

At this point it's pretty safe to say I'll never buy another Durango. I like the v3, my brother likes the dex8, but there is pretty much no support for either car in the states.

As for the revolution design rack, I run 3mm and there is no rub.

The only thing you may have to look is: the dex210v1 with the gullwing arms had longer shock shafts. If you use it with a newer version you may have problems adjusting the height.

I am not sure if I will be able to get the video. I am using the J Concepts Losi 22 3.0 body.

Yes, that is the body but not the light version.

cool thanks!

Can you do me a favor? can you measure the width of the exotek chassis as its widest point? Trying to compare width to the plan b chassis.

Still didn't hear anything from Great Planes. Guess since they didn't answer my email I will have to get them on the phone and talk to my sales rep if they are not going to answer my email.

Shame no communication from them. I was seriously considering getting a 210v3 but now after seeing all of this i will give my business to another brand. Shame since I just purchased a new 410v5. If they can't communicate with customers or have courtesy to answer potential customers is bad business.

I am hoping that something is going on with maybe something better replacing the v3 as the dex410v5 is very nice.
