I didn't like them when looking at them via pictures on amain, but I gotta say, they look pretty bad ass in person.

Can anyone point me to the part numbers for the ' better' ball studs and cups? Or the post where this might already be stated.

Thanks

Thanks, so youre saying the older style ball cups are better than the newer 'heavy duty' ones?

Also, those jconcept ballcups have always been a little stiff to me. I kinda like the softer AE ones that actually bend real easy, enabling you to finish the race, then replace once in the pits. A bend is better than popping off or breaking a ballstud or whatever. Just sayin'.

those of you who installed the AE gear diff:

Default DEX210 w/ Tamiya servo saver

Here is a few pictures of my newly finished DEX210. No problems where encountered during the build, except a few missing screws (no problem as I have a large inventory of screws from tonys screws). I still have to fit the motor/esc/rx and glue the tires.

The car is stock except that I have fitted the Tamiya #51000 hi torque servo saver. Hopefully this will reduce the problem with the front links popping of.

The car will be run on a tight indoor carpet track.

Does the body still sit flush with that saver on there? Also, where can I get that saver?

It will rub slightly without trimming it (lifting the body 2-3mm in front. I will not use the front body-clips, but in stead use Velcro (that will in any case lift the body).

You can in any case trim/bevel the edge of the saver and get the body to sit flush if you like.

Google is your friend! You will also find it on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=....c0.m270.l1313

ballcups are suspect but it seems that aligning them and pre-threading the holes helps alot, which makes sense.
what is the final verdict on the wheel hexes and wheels? do i need to make some adapters with different size hexes?
i already have the ID clips coming from mcmaster for the ball dif issues, is that all that is needed? what size are the dif balls?

has anyone in America even bothered with mid-motor?

anyone??
