Do you have set up your shocks with rebound?

May you can look for some TD "type b -2 spring retainers", this also could help for lowering the right high and not having the collars screwed up that much?
But you would need two sets of them!

Thanks in advance!!
Any known substitute for the ball ends?

Most of the 1/8 scale buggys use these sice in the shocks.

I actually have been using the standard orange Kyosho P4 with good results.

TDR330099 Orange orings work well too. I haven't tried the blue ones.
Hey guys, I was about to purchase the purple o-rings shown below but then stopped short.

https://www.amainhobbies.com/team-du...330612/p475294

I just measured the black x o-ring from the gear diff and cannot measure 4x2 mm in any way. It seems like the inner diameter is 5mm and the outer diameter is 8 mm (making the thickness of the o-ring around 1.5 mm). See the pic below. Are you sure that this will fit?

I just happen to have a Hot Bodies "P4" o-ring that I don't even remember what I used it for. But look and see how it's "loose" inside the diff housing compared to the original x o-ring.

Any thoughts? This is the gear diff for my DEX210 (original).

I use the 4mm o-rings. When you put it over the outdrive it expands and fills the hole. Never had any leaks with them.

Thanks for the quick reply! When I put the o-ring on the outdrive and spin the outdrive, the o-ring spins WITH the outdrive vs. the outdrive spinning inside the o-ring. So the o-ring AND the outdrive both spin inside the housing. Is this the same with you?

That's Okay if it spins with the outdrive. Once it is all assembled it should still spin freely.

Can't want for him to get older, so I can bring him to LHS, pointing my finger to what ever I want, and tell the counter staff, "He, want thisÖ"

I saw something very nice recently on Exotek's website: some new 12mm titanium front axles for the dex210, in stock

When I looked for them a couple months ago I had to ask a British shop to send me what they had lol. I wonder how many exotek has in stock. Or where they found them.

Fred, what are your thoughts about keeping the gap between the top of the springs and the shock collars? It seems like my choice is to either:

1) eliminate the gap by bringing the shock collars down = ride height increases more than 17mm but I retain jumping ability with full suspension travel
2) eliminate the gap by adjusting the droop screws = lift inside tire during cornering and reduced suspension travel for jumps.[/QUOTE]

Why worry about it? Does that gap effect anything? I could see when unload it would "float", I guess it could lead to inconsistenCy though...
Maybe a limiting spacer on the shock shaft INSIDE the shock...?

I only use the shock collars to determine ride height. If there's a gap at full droop, it doesn't really matter but there might be too much droop at that point.

This would be the same as using the droop screws to limit droop.

What kind of a track are you running on? How big are the jumps?

Anyway, yes, Iíve got that one. Iím about to mail the collection of bodyís to TBG and then itís in their hands. Wanted and was ready to do it a few weeks ago but priorities priorities.

As of right now the only bodyís i was unable to locate or didnít get for one reason or another are the DESC410V2 and the DEX210V3.

The only body that Iím currently tracking for the dex210v3 is with a kit in Australia; I just canít justify paying $500 US for a kit I donít need. Iíve already spent A TON on this project. Iíve got everything else: 408,408T, 210 V1 reg, Cfwd,+8mm CFwd, 210V2, all the 410ís, DESC210R, DEST210R, DEX8,DNX8, and DEX8T. Plus a few 210 bodyís that didnít come with kits.

I ignored the DESC410 body because any SCT body pretty much fits and itís not distinctive like the DESC210R body.

Theyíre coming guys, Iíve been talking weekly with TBG and they are anxiously awaiting them.

Hopefully we make it worth their while.

Last call on the DEX210V3. Iíll send it separate if I can get one. If someone is sitting on one, just know that youíd only be without a body for the next couple months, then youíd get two free ones from me.....

The DESC410V2 body looks identical to the one for the DESC210.
