I'm not a fan of the body, but the undertray would be nice to have. Especially with Tresrey getting their carbon chassis soon.

BTW, are the Losi 22 springs the same rates as the XXX springs? I'm assuming they are, but just curious. I like the colored springs better.

Edit: When did you switch to mid-motor? How are you liking it?

i dont think the xxx springs are the same size, 22 shocks are big bore but i could be wrong.

i think if the pix had a paint job that enhanced the lines it would look much better. i will probably bring in a few , have them painted and see how they look.

that was an old pic, mid was horrible around here. our tracks dont have that much grip but it jumped REALLY good and had tremendous cornering ability just no rear traction. i am running RM4 now and loving it!

I think the losi bb and stadard sized springs are the same rates or close.

Here is a chart for Losi,Durango, Kyosho and Schumaker bb springs.

I have been running the stock front springs and losi yellow with shorty pack or losi pink with a full size pack.

xxx springs are smaller and won't fit. I think they are around 12mm and the bb are close to 13.5.

I'm using Losi Red (colored) springs in the rear and they fit perfect. Pretty sure they are from the XXX but I could be wrong.

Also, the spare springs I have for my XXX-CR fit fine too, so...

Has anyone tried JConcepts Rulux front wheels for the B4 on the 210 yet. I want lightweight wheels for my kit and am willing to convert the buggy to accept B4 rear wheels so I can run these. Beside I would like my 210 to match my 410 if I could and I run Rulux wheels on my 410.
Thanks
