I could foresee JC & Proline coming out with Durango wheels.

I have a LRP tc spec in my 210.

Geared at 83/21 there abouts and the motor (LRP x12 8.5T with 0 timing insert) is coming off att 100C the last run. Do I go up pinion?
Im struggling to get the esc up to 60C

Anyone else running this esc? Like it? I find it a bit slow/soft/lazy and Im not sure If I should just turn up the timing on the ,motor or settings in the esc.

Raul Garcia running in the 3rd mod qualify race at Motorama. 1/10th scale track is soon much nicer than the 1/8th scale. Lots of traction and no dust. He qualified 25th out of about 80 drivers.

Forgot to get a picture of the car. Didn't ask. Pretty sure I saw another 210 but couldn't find the driver.

After talking to one of the Hobbico reps at Motorama, they probably won't be doing anything to change the way TD operates for awhile, if ever.

Reason why, is TD still has a standing contract with HRP on being the sole distributor in the US. Also, TD has to get off their ass and start getting more parts made and in larger quantities. From what I've seen over the last two months, HRP hasn't been doing that bad on getting things out.

Bottom line is, if they don't have the parts, they can't distribute them.

I would agree with you for the ProLine part, but i don't see JC doing anything real soon. Aren't they slightly chained to AE?

Thanks for the pic of the track. I'm tired. It was a long day, seemed to get better as I went through the day. The competition was fierce. And so close. My cars are rockets. But like many others, there is a quad jump that is. killing many racers. I call it the equalizer. I can't stand it, my cars is superb through the rest of the track. Venom "Red" 7.5 83/22. Using a R10 pro boosted.

I did manage to crunch up a gear diff in the first round, causing all sorts of handling issues. I put the ball diff back in and felt instantly better in every corner. I guess the gear diff isn't for me.

Right now I'm exhausted.
