just building mine, anybody notice the steering locking up at full turn? I figured I would just stop my end points on the radio a bit short.

Get it built fully first, I think this was discussed real early and if I remember right it goes away once its all built.

This happens only when you turn the steering by hand, it won't occur when the steering is being moved by the servo. So don't worry...

I've almost got mine together now, just a pair of shocks, gluing some tires and some soldering and I'll be aces. That said, Durango, please include a Tresrey or equivalent steering rack in the kits! I was building turnbuckles yesterday and was worried about snapping the stock piece while assembling everything. I can only imagine how much flex it has on track. I got the Tresrey piece and now it's fairly flex free (plus it looks cool). Minor stuff though and things you can obviously fix easily.

I've owned 2wd buggies in the past that really didn't do much for me, but if this car drives have as good as it looks and builds, I'm going to love this thing.

Adam, glad you like the carbon brace! It definitely is a nice piece to have and takes some of the slop out as well

I ran my 210 for the first time Wednesday night and I just have to drive better but I'm about a lap off my pace that I had with my 22. A few more laps and I should be back on my normal slow guy pace

Konich, definitely a fan, I've owned a few Tresrey parts in the past and they've all been of really good quality. I've got my eye on the site for the carbon chassis... totally unecessary on this buggy, but I can't deny the cool factor.

where are you guys buying the option springs for the Durango buggy? I didn't see them on A Main. Is the consensus to go a little stiffer in the rear end? Thanks

[QUOTE=Cpt.America;10043966]No offense, but this post is short sighted. The balance of the dex is nothing like the B4... the rear end of the dex is considerably heavier.[/QUOTE That depends on Lipo size and placement of the lipo electronics .. my 210 scales out all most identical to my team mates b4.1 little overall heavier but minor.. 4 wheel scale percentages are very close .I also run my lipo up against the servo... just my findings

Hey Guys I wanted to share with you a little experiment I'm working on with my 210 build. I've read all the success as well as some issues with the Ball Diff. While TD hasn't release the optional Gear Diff yet for the Car, I was curious to see if this little Gear Diff would fit.

It comes out of the ARRMA Raider and is an all metal tunable(with oil) diff.

ARRMA who? why them? Seems to be Durango's sister company as the share the same address in the UK and confirmed via email they share ties between the to companies.

Anyway, this little Diff fits right into the 210, no shimming needed.

For you calorie counters, Since it's all metal it weighs in at about 58 grams with oil. so it will add a little more weight to the back of the car as well as rotational mass.

I added some 3000wt and will give it a whirl to see how she runs.

Granted I'm not A high end racer like some on the board but i do like to tweak and tune because it's fun to do so.

Below are some pics for you

That's great.. but the ball diff in the 210 is SOO good, and so far, requires far less maintenance than any other diff I have ever used. I can't find a reason to go to a gear diff in this car. The ball diff just doesn't seem to ever get chunky...

Hey CA, Not trying to take away from the Ball Diff as you guys are having great luck with it. I 'm gearing up to build it as well as we speak

Was just curious to see if this little Diff would work or even fit as an optional Diff for the car.

I love this Kit /Car. It's been a blast to build despite some minor corrections in the manuals both online and in the book. I can't wait to get it rolling so i can start brushing up my driving skills with it.

Do Losi springs fit these shocks? If not, what other company springs fit?
