Yeah only thing that kills those gear covers is if the pinion slides off and cuts a hole them. Which is why I made a 210 one of similar construction to the B3/T3

or even this 120 amp http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._Car_ESC_.html
absolutely is NOT a copy of the hobbywing 1s..It is actually an esc that can be bought under the Turnigy , or Toro name brands.It looks similar to the hobbywing 1s , but it does NOT use hobbywing firmware..I own 2 of the turnigy esc's.they look hobbywing, but they are not.The programming menus are layed out similar but are definitely not hobbywing, and the turnigy escs will NOT communicate with any of my hobbywing programming cards..I own a few hobbywing "knock offs" they all communicate and program with my hobbywing links, but the turnigys will not..

Not to bring up the subject over and over but this is irritating. I've had really good luck with the stock non-hd ballcups, the ones that come on the desc410. Been running them on both that truck and my dex. I needed to replace one due to an incident where someone ran into me, full speed, and actually snapped the turnbuckle. It left a chunk of turnbuckle in the cup. Finally found a set from some obscure hobby shop website. Installed them and they're like mush! No "snap" at all. They pretty much fall off if I breath on them. What's up with that?? I hate throwing money away.

In conclusion of my rant, I ordered up some RPM cups and TC5 studs. Wish me luck.

Hello all,

I am looking on changing from my TLR22 to the Durango DEX210 and I have a couple of questions.

1. Rear hex, can it be changed to 12mm (either Durango part of other maker?)

2. Will it fit the TLR / JConcept 22 Rear rims?

I would like to minimize the number of rims I need to buy.

Thanks

As far as I know, if you want to use other wheels, you'll have to make your own hexes, as the 210 hexes are on the inside of the pin, and the others (22, RB5) are on the outside. I did hear that the older 410 hexes were 12mm, bit I can't confirm this..

For the rear, use the J Concepts rear hex conversion, plus the mono wheel for the 22. I'm waiting for the Tresrey front axle for associated wheels.

Need some feedback from people running the Lunsford Ti Buckle kit.

Are you ripping rear ballcups on big landings or hits because the rear buckle is too short and doesn't have enough threads when using the 3rd outer camber link hole?

I've tried the next longest Lunsford link (2.25") but it's the thin version, and doesn't fit with the 4.8mm ball cups that come with the kit. I have Losi XXX HD cups that work, but don't have the right size ball studs for those cups.
-Would just need a small ballstud with the same threads as the Lunsford kit ones.

I also tried the larger TLR 22 Ti links that are longer, but again, don't have the right ball cups.

I'd really like to have a longer Ti link in the rear for the reassurance of not ripping out of cups.

Anyone know if Lunsford has either longer ballcups that would fit the 210 Lunsford kit, or is there a longer Lunsford link that would work with the 4.8mm Lunsford cups?

On a side note:

Got the bulk of my titanium screws I ordered last week in.

I was lazy and didn't bother to weigh the screws themselves, but before I tore down, the buggy weighed ~1640g. I just got done putting everything together, still have a good number of steel screws left, and even added the Tresrey front bulkhead, and I'm down to 1593g.

You need "Super Duty" (3.5mm) turnbuckle from Lunsford.
