I know that Durango has their hands full right now, but does any one know if they plan on a stadium truck based on the 210 (not short coarse). I for one sure hope so. We have resurected the class at SDRC in San Diego, saturdays there are usually 8 or more for the class. With the (delayed) Losi 22T soon to hit shelfs of the LHS there's no reason this class can't come back with strength. SDRC class runs MF2's through T4's as well as RB5's too. Other tracks are seen the same breath of fresh air for the class as well. So if any body knows it's time to spill the beans.

No idea how the Finnisher will be interpreted with the DEX210 but its nice to see JC supporting the platform.
Hopefully it doesnt look as bad on the Durango as it does on that car. That thing is fugly!

So the diff gear and the top shaft gear are the only two gears you need to worry about when you talk about FDR

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gear_ratio
EXACTLY!! do the math with the idlers in the equation and guess what you get the same internal ratio as if you just divide the diff gear by the top shaft gear.The fact is that the idlers are mearly there to transfer power from the topshaft to the diff...they have zero effect on the drive ratio.it doesnt matter if you are running the 3 gear or the 4 gear, the internal ratio is still just the # of teeth on the diff gear divided by the number of teeth on the topshaft

we have some very loamy tracks here, the droop screws wont get used on my car..we still have to dump the added dirt weight out of our cars after a run here,LOL..we still have tracks where losi silver step pins may NOT be agressive enough towards the end of a race day,LOL.. translation- there will be very few groomed clay tracks in my 210's future, mainly out door michigan soil tracks where any pinch points are just another place to collect gravel or mud

No problem. Another thing I found that's missing in the kit manual but shown in the online manual, is on page 24/33 assembling the RM braces to the trans. Online manual shows 320121-5 plastic spacers between the bottom brace and the chassis. My kit manual doesn't show those spacers at all.

I agree 100%, I would hope it has a few more contours to it than that..

Only things I have broken is: Rear tower, but they were some Nasty rolls. I now have CF towers. But apart from that its a very durable buggy so far. Loving mine! But no..not heard of anyone in the UK breaking anything on the steering rack yet..

I've seen a few break, but Cush hasn't broke anything on his car yet. There are a few cf options available currently and I believe Tresrey has one coming too.

No word on that yet. The rumor I heard, and its totally unofficial (in the sc durango thread), is that an sc is coming first. You have to remember that st isnt raced in Europe where TD is based.

Be careful with that orion servo. I broke the mounting tabs in my 210 and you can't buy a replacement case for it. Even the US support (horizon) can't fix it, they just give you the chance to buy another one at a reduced cost.

If anyone knows how I can get a replacement case for the orion 1106 servo please let me know.

How did you break the mounting tabs? i have had this servo in my B4 for a year with glued servo saver and no issues.
