Tresrey USA has the super dialed Cream front towers with the aluminum ballstud mounts (to keep original locations) and will soon have their own rear towers and rear inner ballstud mount made from cf plate. Check my sig for website

On another note, I finally found the time to build my 210 and will be running it for the first time tonight. After working with my brother I feel we have a pretty solid setup for the buggy and I'm stoked to get out and race it. I'll snap some pics tonite before the maiden voyage.

Ok, running RM3 the nut should be on the left(drivers) side and the head of the diff screw should be on the right(pinion) side of the car?

Either way is correct. Alot of people will tell you that it matters, but in reality it doesn't. I know plenty of people who flip their diff when their outdrives wear out.

perfect example of how much it does not matter is the RB5..they run the nut on the slipper side and the bolt through the drivers side.. basically as long as your thrust is doing its job it does not matter..if you have issues with your diff loosening.. yeah the thrust, she needs attention..

I would think your buggy bottoms out alot with 6 holes all around....the light oils will transfer weight very quickly back and forth, side to side. No wonder you have crazy steeering. I would think you bottom out easily in rear too. The 210 is kinda heavy as it is. Alot of the guys on here run 4 hole pistons all around. I like 4 x 1.3mm/#55's all around. 32.5 front/30 rear Losi oils.
Running the shorty will give you less stability/rear grip. The major reason to run one is to make it more edgy...quicker reacting/more steering.

It doesnt bottom out at all. If I went that heavy in the oils, I'd be bouncing all over the place(shocks would pack to quickly over the rough, my track is not smooth) but its worth a shot.

I think you can order them directly from 8 Racing but the site in German. I would wait until Tresrey USA carries them. I personally have no reason to use them since the stock towers work perfectly. They do look cool.

Okay so Jorn looks to have the long chassis AND a brass front bulkhead!!! That makes a ton of sense. Thats like 60g up front.

And yes he's joking....sort of. It definitely takes longer than any other car out there to get the diff out but it shouldnt be more than 10-15 minutes total to get it in and out.
Arh thanks, got to remove and reposition the Diff nut as its currently on the right hand side.

THanks all for the help and advice.

His buggy must have been close to 1700g.
