Well, it's nice to see some option parts becoming available, lmk when you receive them, and hopefully some of the std parts will start straining through the B/O status..

The front mount does not use the droop screws, this car has so little droop I haven't even seen anyone using them. I'll know more when my first batch comes in from Japan in January.

Just got my aluminum rear toe-block in the mail... MAN is this thing high quality! I don't think it could be any precise!

I use my front droop screws quite a bit.

So the rear kick up is only 2 degrees or other blocks will be available?

Hey Konich. I'll probably pick up the 3/2 block when they arrive, but I don't even think that's technically a factory option. I seem to remember a 3/1.5 and a 3/3, but not a 3/2. If we could get a 3/3, that'd be great; I like a lot of pack in my shocks and the extra anti-dive really helps. That being said, an unbreakable red piece that looks as good as Tresrey's other products... I'm in.

Anyone switched from a B4.1? Can you tell me why you switched and how do you think the 210 compares to the B4.1.

I switched from a B4.1 +8 ... both are great cars, both have their advantages and disadvantages. The b4.1 feels faster, the 210 feels more planted and stable. The shocks are about 100x better on the 210, but the 210 is about 100x harder to work on. You cant go wrong with either car.

I switched just to try something new. I really liked the build quality of the durango stuff, and fell in love with how tunable the car is... I still have the B4.1 here on the shelf... haven't sold it yet.

+1. The 210 is very responsive to changes but the B4.1 was very on edge when it comes to steering which I liked. The 210 has tons of steering but does not spin out easily. Quality is very high unlike the B4 which developes slop quickly but some argue that is good.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Did either of you felt like you were slower or faster switching from the B4.1 or was it just a different feel with different trade offs?

So far it's different feel but in a better way. As I have more wheel time, I hope to get faster. I can drive it about the same as my B4 but with less effort.

Good to know. One last question. How is parts availability, durability, and parts cost compared to the B4.1.

Great! There just might be a 210 in the near future. How does the car compete in 17.5 non boost?
