You can run front Associated rims and then use the B4 rear hex and rims from Jconcept and have readily available rim package. The vented spur gears is interesting as well, like JC.

I can't for the life of me figure out why no manufacturer has produced the 14mm alloy hexes. Durango has released theirs but nowhere in stock. This is one of the more important upgrades needed.

I actually like the DE rims, they nice and stiff. Well made rim. And now its available for the DEX410 V3 front 14mm

Those are some serious parts.

However I wonder how much weight all that stuff will add. This buggy already needs to be on a serious diet, and adding all that metal is going to make it worse.

I would like to see JC come out with rims as well.

I run the DE Rims right now. They are definitely top notch, haven't had one crack or warp yet.

Aftermarket parts are usually not needed and just add the cool factor. The crucial things to replace on the 210 is akerman plate, 14mm alloy hexes and ballcups/ballstuds. Will try the Tresrey CF rear camber plate when available.

Yeah I would not need the brass "rear" stuff. But the Brass front bulkhead I would try. And all the other "bling" parts look sick!!!.

Can't wait for some new spur gears. I checked last week and Tresrey was out. I just built the car and will run for the first time this Friday. I'm not sure why they put an 87 spur in 2wd buggy kit; the biggest pinion I can squeeze in is a 25 maybe a 26. Luckily I'm running an 8.5t so hopefully it isn't an issue.

You forgot metal inner rear toe block... 100% must have for this car IMO. The rest of those upgrades would add too much weight, and would be totally unnecessary, like the aluminum wing mounts. I would love some aluminum rear hexes however.

Because this car was engineered in the UK, where they all run carpet/mid motor/mod. They don't run 17.5 there at all. My guess would be the slowest motor they run, would be a 8.5

Try the machined spur gears from Schumacher for the Cougar, they are a direct fit.

I have yet to break the RF toe block, but now stating that they will break left and right...
