Try mine, go to tresrey-usa.com and set-up sheets. If it's not changed yet, only different thing I have done is light red springs in the rear and the #3 hole on the rear hub.

Is there a notable difference between the RM3 to the RM4 in rear traction on a medium to loose track?

You will see a noticable difference in rear traction and on-throttle steering between RM3 and RM4 regardless of what surface you are on. If you are on a medium traction surface, I would probably start RM3. If are you a LOW traction track like loose/loamy dirt or something, RM4 is where i would start. I am on a medium traction indoor clay track, and RM3 is considerably better.

Default saddle packs

Is anyone running saddle packs in 210? Can't find any photos, do they go in same as stick pack or is do they mount side to side like most saddle pack vehicles? I have 410 and am considering this car, but want to run saddle pack. Pictures would be great if anyone has them. Thanks.

i run saddles, you can split them and run one in the front ,one in the rear,all front or all rear. helps out with tuning! although to split them you need a longer hold down plate.

Default thanks

Thanks for the quick response with photo, big help. Did you experiment with all positions, why the split choice? Better jumping or handling?

with RM4 the car has a tendency to wheelie when you stab it, its a benefit on some parts of the track but can hinder you on others. splitting the pack keeps the front down and also helps in off power steering as it transfers weight better going into the turn. with the battery all the way back i would have to add weight under the bulkhead.

watch the video i posted above thats with the battery all the way back.

So the setup on my 210 has come all the way around, and is darn close to being perfect. It ran fantastic last night. But in my main, about 1/4 the way in, my car started to make some funny sounds. It is starting to squeek a little bit, usually in the high speed sections of the track. I havne't taken the gearbox apart, but all the external bearings seem 100% perfect, and everything spins nice and free...

Anybody else seeing this?
