Rs in blinky, Fantom Apex (revtech) with 12.5mm spec high torque rotor, 4th timing line on the motor.

The 34 might fit with the 75, for the 35 you have to lengthen the motor screw holes and make an "adjustment" to the gear cover.

Ran the DEX210 for the 1st time last night... heck 1st time ive ran a 2wd buggy...LOL... So really dont have anything to compare to

Thing was DIALED.... Used Billy F setup and seemed preety good... had ta stiffen rear shock since the CORRECT springs arent out yet.... most the b4.1 guys where very impressed with it, not me but It, LOL


I Do have a question...

The drive Cups seem pretty sloppy where the dog Bone Goes In, meaning, The move in and out at the bearings at the upright.... i was afraid the Pins on the axle would fall out...
I placed a Little piece of Fuel tiding inside the cup to help tighten it up... but those fell out..

Did i miss something in the Manual???

Thanks guys

GREAT rig... cant wait ta get some more Runtime in it... Also ordered RW RC spurs and emailed for dealer account..... SWEET!!!

Does anyone have extra springs that they would be interested in selling to stiffen up the rear since people are saying that's a little soft. Or does anyone know of a place selling the springs

Default 3/3 toe block

I finished up a batch of toe blocks. I have a limited quantity since I had a bunch of pre-orders. They are CNC machined from 7075/T651 aluminum. It is superior to 2024 or 6061. PM me and I will give you a price. I will fill in order that PMs are received.
The pic of the installed block was the first prototype. The only changes I had to make was a couple cosmetic radii.

This may be a silly question but what do the toe blocks do...are they for the back of the car?

It is the block in front of the rear hinge pins. It dictates the amount of toe and anti-squat. The plastic is soft and not the composite material. It seems the hinge pin can pull out of the side of the block.

They just do anti squat... if you take note of the inscription on all three they all say the same "3*" toe-in ......the toe is changed by selecting the appropriate insert in the hubs where it connects to the arm.

Sorry I didn't get my report in. I own the prototype and ran it before full-on production started. I gave Yeti the feedback that the car felt exactly as it did before. Once he got the O.K. he made a whole bunch. This thing is awesome! Installed like a factory piece, except for the fact that the pivot balls fit BETTER than the ones on my 410. Knowing that my car is now bulletproof is also nice. Get your orders in, guys. If you have to wait, wait. Its definitely worth it. If your buddy has a 210, order 2 and save on shipping!
