Your best bet is to order the single spring sets that are still in stock at a few online retailers, and then fill in the gaps with the Losi Big Bore springs.

Few things I want to put out there:

Tested some tapered pistons this weekend. Front - 4 hole 1.3, rear - 4 hole 1.2, 30/20 oil. Previous setup was the same, except for the tapered pistons. Same size and number of holes.

Car felt slightly better in the triple "bump" section of my LHS track. Suspension seemed to work faster in getting the tires to contact the track better. Jumps & overall performance felt better as well.

For those running the Lunsford kit., are you finding that you don't have enough threads on the rear turnuckles? With the kit 2" length, using the 3rd outer hole on the hubs doesn't seem to leave a lot left. I ripped the turnbuckle out from the ballcup the other day. I bought the next length up from my LHS (2.25") and ordered a few sets of the 4.8mm cups.

Also, anyone interested in piecing together a full Titanium screw set, it's going to be expensive. I went back and followed the kit & checked the parts list in the manual. I had to order from Lunsford & Acer Racing to find most of them.

The only ones I couldn't find in Ti were button heads over 30mm length and M2 screws.

Side note, new Proline Square Fuzzies are pretty awesome. M4 compound really makes them worth it. I ran two 6min. heats this weekend and show no sign of wear at all. Still have slight molding excess material on the tread.

What's a good pinion to start off with for an 8.5, stock spur, and 80 foot straight on the DEX210? Just need a good starting point.

A little off subject but Ryan Lutz wins the nitro challenge with RCshox 2 stage pistons!! Once we get the SC ironed out we will move to the 210!
He ran 4 hole 1.1/1.2 with 450/250cst!

More news! Bugle boy bodies are in stock and they are making gearbox covers that wrap around the motor plate!! As soon as they are done I am going to import a bunch of them.

Default turnbuckle length

I'm going to start my build tonight. I went through the instruction manual online and printed version, and found a difference between them.

If I follow the online manual, all the camber links and steering links will be longer than the printed manual. Following are distance between ball cup:

Front camber links: 19.5mm vs 18mm
Steering links: 20mm vs 19.5mm
Rear camber links: 12.5mm vs 10mm

Any idea which instruction I should follow for the initial build?

Link lengths are irrelevant until you put them on the car itself. That's when you'll adjust cambers and toe.

I found that RCLazy (with dot com) has their Durango & Tresrey stuff on Clearance. It's overseas for us in the US, but they had a small assortment, including diff rings, when I looked last weekend. They must not have a great amount of confidence in Durango when they've got it on clearance. Durango needs to get this parts & supply thing fixed.

I think it's a shame really. I gave up after I found a spare gearbox but no kits to be found. Maybe down the road, when parts availability gets sorted out.
