Tighten the diff more...most of us seem to be around 1/4 turn from fully tightened down...any looser and it will start slipping. The diff seems very tolerant of being this tight and stays smooth as a bonus

Was afraid of tighten the diff that much, but if you say this is just normal I'll do so and get the car on track ASAP!

Thanks for quick reply buddy!

After about 3 weeks of driving my 22 I got really bad rear traction issues and diff problems. Well I thaught their diff sucked even had ae diff parts installed. The reason is I actually had my slipper to tight so that problem was solved. Rear traction issues were from trying to build emulsion shocks, if they are not built right u will bleed out to much oil and the piston will come out the oil on suspension compression causing rear end to dump over and wash out even in a straight line. So I just use bladders for now. The other cause is the rear hexes if u put them fully up against the axle pin it binds the inner bearing and becomes very gritty so when u get on the throttle 1 wheel accellerate faster then the other which causes the car to pull to one side and or loss rear traction. So when I put my hexes on I make sure I can move my axle about a 1/2 mm or so so it want bind and check them alot. Havent had any rear end issues since.

Has anyone ran the rear shocks on the back side of the tower with the rear arms inverted?

im not sure, but ryan was running the shocks on the back of the towers on his dnx408. im really asking because i built it backwards, and i want to know if there are any pros or cons to running it like lutz was.

I think, though not 100% positive, that the reason they were flipping the shocks on the 408 and also on the Desc is for more rear weight bias, which really isn't necessary on the 210. It shouldn't change the geometry of the suspension for any gains.

so essentially it should work better for the MM configuration than the RM


Also, since the last kit I've build was a TT-01R which was fairly simple, any tips/suggestions for when I start my build?

you need a screw kit in case there are any missing screws. also dont throw away the small allen key that comes with the kit. you will need the allen key for the shocks, and they are suppose to be 1.5mm, but they are smaller than 1.5mm. also you should plan ahead and get a 1.3 or 1.2mm drill bit so you can tap out the blank shock pisions and make them 4 hole. the 6 hole even with thicker oil seem to not work very well. you will also need to get ready for some really bad instructions and incorrect part numbers listed. that was the most fustrating for me. also you will want to pay special attention to the c clip that goes in the diff because one side is flat and the other is beveled. go back like 10 or so pages and you will see a pic that captain america posted and you will understand. other than that have fun.

I received mine in the second batch and it had a bag of extra screws, nuts and shims. The shock screws are 1.3mm or .050. The pistons can either be plugged with a tooth pick and cut flush (what I did) or glue and zip kicked. I used the instruction online and built off of that and used the paper book for screw sizes.
