I like the formula 1 look of the stock body. probably get one if they ever come available. The finisher is pretty cool too but everyone has a body like it.

here is the link to this servo..
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...13sec_32g.html

It centers nicely, the geartrain moves nice and freely,its MG,and weighs in at 28g with a .11 transit time @6v..as you can see from the pics I did have to shim the servo forward due to the mounting tabs being so close towards the output shaft face of the servo..I just used some plastic 3mm nuts I had in my hard ware box that are approx.4 mm spacers.
Have practiced with it and thus far seems to be a good cheap buy for putting the 210 on a diet..BTW it has a standard 25spline futaba output shaft..
is it me or the Servo is on the other way around? checked mine and also other posted pics... seems like the servo is installed on the other side. hmmm...

I noticed that also but didn't question it since I dont think it would have any affect other then having to maybe reverse the servor or something.

Cool...this buggy seems to be really taking off. By the post count on here, it seems to just be growing. IMO this buggy is awesome. I don't have much time on it, but it is solid and the options for its configuration are incredible. In my short time of running it, I see zero issues. The ballcups have not been an issue. IMO this seems to be the most adjustable buggy out there.

The ball cap issue really has just saved me in other parts that might broken. ya u can invest in other ball cups that have a higher rate of failure but that rate just transfers to another part of your car.

And follow this guide for assembling your linkages.
http://www.team-durango.com/blog/201...e-build-guide/
If your turnbuckles are popping off at an "unusual" rate then boil them in water for a minute and it should help the situation but this is for seasoned vehicles; like 6 mo or so of roughin it around there track. this will shrink the plastics and cause a tighter fit..
Its a great car and the tunability of this thing is insane. ON the clay track i run at that simple .5 adjustment that isn't found on other buggies makes a big difference and QUICKLY!! very fast to adjust things here

The car is made to do that,LOL.. seriously, there is a servo wire channel in the Lside pod as well as the right..all you do is swap the steering rack arms so the one that carries the ballstud is opposite of what the manual says.It allows you to run your receiver/esc on either side of the car without having to do funky things with your servo wiring to get to the receiver..They thought it through VERY thoroughly when they designed this ride..the more I play with it , the more I like it.."the devil is in the details"...well they payed CLOSE attention to the details..REALLY surprised no-one else has figured this little trick out yet...Besides who uses destruction manuals anyway,LOL..cool things happen when you throw the manual out the window..look what hapened the last time I tried to build a XXX-cr.....BTW, I can SOOOO forsee a 210 based sprint for this years dirt oval season!!

still running full size myself, but a shorty is in order soon, more for weight bias adjustment rather than weight saving...

We are running shorty packs. Not only is it lighter, but the car has so much rear traction where we race that the shorty is almost always run full forward to get the steering needed. With the full size packs there was always too much rear traction. Using the shortys our rear springs are a bit lighter than what most are running, but our cars seem to work really well and can be driven hard with confidence in the corners.
