On the bench, dropping the car with the stock springs, the car would land and not come back up, just land with a thud, with the Losi springs, the car was rebounding and seems more conformable/responsive to the track.

The track I run on has some silt in it and is hard pack/smooth with medium grip. Running a boosted 13.5. The track is adding in some clay in the coming weeks so grip should start to come up. I will be racing on a higher grip track Saturday so we will see how the car does there.

I have a master build/setup sheet that I have been slowly filling in that includes the spring chart. If there is any interest, I can post that as well.

The red Losi fronts are alot softer than the kit 210 springs....the 210 uses the DK BLUE front spring which would be springier than the Losi's...thats part of the reason you experienced more off power steering. I cant account for the car springing back up better with the Losi springs as my car feels fine and I'm still using the stock kit springs and I'm on par lap time wise at my local track in Exp 2wd mod. But hey, if it works for you then cool!

I can't reiterate this enough... the box springs that come with the car are for a mid motor balanced car, not a rear motor car. You CAN'T have one set of springs that will be optimal for both mid motor AND rear motor.... The weight distribution is VASTLY different between the two. I have nailed down the proper spring balance for an average rear motor car, and will have my setup sheet ready to post after this Saturday's race... just need to fine tune a bit more.

Agreed! I was thinking I could tune around it.

Yeah just grab a B4 and ream it out, there is just a very small amount of the thick inner ring left when its done. The durango spurs are hard and noisy so I would go with the RW's.

Schumacher is a direct fit, or get RW Spurs off of Ebay. In a pinch ream an AE spur but do it slowly and carefully so that its concentric otherwise it wont spin true and you'll have high and low spots where the mesh will change.

Hey Guys,

I'm reading all the stuff on the DEX210 but i'm a bit confuse..

I actually run my 210 in MM4 configuration, the car was so so at the very first race but went very wrong since... i have so much frustration with this car! that's crazy! i run in loose dirt in the morning and hard packed in the afternoon, medium groove.

I can't understand what's going on.. in can't control the car on power, even when i accelerate very very smooth... the rear tend to swipe out...

Any suggestion?

A lot of people tell me to convert the car in RR3... but i dont know...

i just want to ditch this car here and take an RB5!

You need to go Rear Motor for a loose track...even a med grip track you should be in Rear motor mode. You can go with RM4 if the track stays mostly loose but RM3 will be good all around with the right set up. MM4 is for high grip like running on carpet or astro, not loose dirt.
