Just picked up a Dex210 and getting ready for the build.
This is my first buggy and I had a newb question for tires.
I will be running on a bumpy dirt track/low to med traction.
The tires I chose are Holeshots M4 and Suburbs M4 for the rear. Using Scrubs M3 for the front.

Are vent holes recommended for the tires similar to SC and 1/8 tires?
I was doing some research and looks like vent holes are recommended when using closed cell foams. No vent holes for stock/white inserts.
Is this correct?

Any feedback will be great - thanks

I always vent the tire either way..... usually two 3-4mm holes in each tire will do it. You can get a leather punch at Home Depot or Lowes for cheap and it will have a few different size punches on it.

Well after two races I have an outdrive thats shot. It was on the left side primarily and its hogged out to where the cvd will not move freely under power. Sounds like this is an isolated case as no one else is having the same problem.

Just rebuilt the diff with some Bfast balls and it feels nice. I flipped the diff so I can race on Saturday but will be buying some new outdrives as soon as they are in stock.

I heard from a fellow racer the 210 has rear hinge pin problems . Since they are back ordered has anyone found a substitute that will work ?

Something worth considering with venting: If you plan to use traction compounds on your tires, you should put vent holes in the rims. Holes in the tires will allow tire sauce to eat the foams quickly. If you're running outdoors on looser surfaces, vent holes in the tires allows dirt to escape.

The hinge pins on the 210 are rock solid... he must have his cars mixed up.

Maybe he is talking about the plastic suspension holders. They are in stock at Losipartshouse.

You will have to check you cvd's, as the durango pins are larger than both of those cars I believe..

Thanks for the feedback
I will end up putting vent holes since I will be running on a loose dirt and 50/50 clay and dirt track.
