Cool deal. Definitely waiting on that + the aluminum rear toe mount & front bulkhead. Already have a nice list building up.

Tresrey Japan has been working hard on parts for the 210. You can be sure Tresrey USA will have the items first and a massive stock as well

I already have the towers, I ordered them straight from the man who makes them.
They are very nice!

The 410 cf chassis was a few grams less than half the weight of the original- I would guess the 210 chassis will be similar to that.

Anyone have a gearing for running a brushed P94 12x3? I'm on a backup ESC (Novak Atom) and this is the only motor I have to run with it. Was hoping to race this week but have no idea how to gear brushed motors on this car.

That is great news... this car needs a diet. if the carbon chassis is that much lighter, I will certainly be ordering one! They key will be protecting it...

The more wing you run, the more pressure you generate on the rear tires. The faster the car is going, the more pressure you generate, in an exponential curve.. So in general, more wing = less steering at medium and high speeds, more rear traction at medium and high speeds. It also affects pitch balance of the car in the air. All of my testing with this car so far, at least for me, pushes me to run less and less wing. YMMV

Well after five full race days and countless packs I broke my first part. Busted the upper mount tab off the gear cover. Landed motor first off our massive triple. I also replaced the inner rear ballcups after they stretched out from many high speed tumbles.

For grins I put a Orion 6.5 in and was able to lay the power down, well almost. Wheelie king! Diff still smoooth.

I want to try a shorter rear tower. Maybe get a more progressive feel from the rear end. If you bottom out the chassis you still have a ton of up travel from the wheels in stock form. The rear spring is no where near being fully compressed. By no means do I think its required but as someone who usually just throws on a setup and just runs Its nice to try stuff a little outside the box.

With the stock spur start at a 21 and check your temps a couple minutes into the first run.

I usually ran 8 over with my B4 (81 spur) and a 12x2 on pretty decent sized tracks.
A 21 would be just under and a 22 just over the equivalent with a 81 spur.

thanks so for a tight track or indoors less wing the better i will be running it for the first time saturday (weather permitting) so if it pushes i will cut the wing.

Default shocks

is it normal on this buggy to have to compress the rear shock to put the bottom screw in? the rear shocks seem very long and they cant compress all the way because of the pistion hitting the cap is that normal? i was just wanting to make sure.
thanks Blake

If the arms aren't at full droop, then you will have to compress the shocks to get the screw in. So,if you have your droop screws out at all, you will have to compress them a little.
