can anyone figure out what the square plate is for by the steering linkage?

I think I figured it out. I think that is where the optional 15g and 30g weight attaches. pull the plastic plate and screw in the brass weight.

Well considering that the servo sits on an angle directly over this location. I would put my money on one of those nifty 30 dollar wieghts!

Who said anything about anything being offensive? What the heck are you even talking about?

The car definitely looks awesome! Ordered mine months ago, the only thing I see right away is the front plastic hinge pin holder. All those options look great. Just more for me to screw my car up.......

I'm a four wheel guy. What does moving the front axle front to back do for you? Entry/exit steering? Please explain. Also looks like the same spring rates as the 410. I gonna have to soften the front up I think......Thanks

Inline is more aggressive in the steering department.

The front plastic hinge pin holder has this stamped alloy brace inside to hold things together. Should be plenty strong enough.

I'm hoping to have the 210 built and ready by the 15th for Raceworld but we'll have to see if the kits show up in time.

The more inline the axles are with the steering pivot, the more aggressive the steering feel becomes. The more trailing you run, the more subdued... How or why, im not 100% sure, but I can only assume a more trailing setup creates more of a slip angle, just like how running less than ideal ackerman reducing steering. If anybody has a good physics explanation on how a trailing front axle reduces steering compared to an inline, I would like to hear it.
