If you were to flip the arms backwards to mount the shocks in the rear, are there any other changes you'd have to make to keep the car the same as if the shocks are mounted normally? I can't think of anything, but thought I'd ask.

With my former Schumacher Cougar SV, mounting the shocks in the back made a noticeable difference in handling without doing anything else to the car. I'm interested to try this out and see what happens.

Just installed the Tresrey slipper hubs and shaft. The dimensions of the shaft are off slightly. had to take some length off the aluminum spacer between the outer support bearing and the gear. It was notchy and have considerable bind when the motor plate screws were tightened down. After reducing the length of the spacer it was free. then used two of the included shims and it's perfect now. I am using the RC Shox slipper pads. Overall, very nice. The hubs would look cooler in Tresrey red!

Nice Jmuck, I was thinking about that also, but I have a few rw spurs in stock, so I am good to go there. I did however order a few items from Tresery that should be here tomorrow, so I have a little wrenching to do...
I built my front shocks the other night, with the black ti shafts. I used Kyo seals, as they seemed to have less shaft drag, and they have always worked for me in the past, they feel really smooth..Can't wait to get my car dirty again.

I'm running the gold shafts and are nice. I believe the black shafts are smoother (sounds like a 70's era film...). I just did the rear arm flip mod to try out this weekend. It is right around +6-7mm difference than stock. It was such an easy mod that I think TD designed it like this from the start.

3mm difference in rear shock shaft length doesn't change anything. Also, I've found having some droop taken out of the rear helps keep the outdrives in better condition, as they bind and make a lot of noise at full droop with 55mm shafts.

Jmuck,

Definitely waiting to hear some feedback. I'm not sure my next race will require that much change in wheelbase, but it might be something to look into in the future.

I noticed that also, noisy at full droop, but doesn't 3mm seem a bit much...I just switched mine to RM4, as our outdoor track is going to be shared with 1/8, so its going to get loose and dusty..

Default Facing problems with dex210. Need help

Hi guys,
Jus got a dex210. Need some help with some problems I'm currently facing.
Firstly, does the gear box housing be needed to tighten fully? Cos wen I do tighten it fully, the screws end up producing n jamming the big gear connected which is connected to e pinion.

Secondly, after assembling the gear box... The plastic piece which covers the gears on e outside doesn't seem to fit perfectly leaving gaps(as if warping) which I'm afraid dirt, n sand will enter thus hindering the gears(the pinion n the gear connected to e pinion).
As fr ride height n settings, maybe u experts can advice me on wat setup I should be running as Im a beginner to rc cars World.
Jus FYI, I'm configured to 3 gear mid motor.

Thx guys.
Cheers
Vin

Make sure the transmission screws are in the correct location, there is one that is a little longer than the others, but they shouldn't protrude from the plate. As far as how tight, I put a dab of loctite on the end of them, and lightly snug them. The gear cover sounds odd, hey are fragile, and shouldn't be over tightened, but I have never noticed or heard of any warping..The kit set-up is a great start, or you can go HERE and find something to start with..

There is no toe built into the arms OR the hubs. All the toe is provide by the forward rear toe block, and/or the inserts you run in the hubs.

Check the gear cover to see if it is hitting a motor screw. Mine will do this sometimes, depends on spur to pinion combo. Box setup works pretty well and just concentrate on driving and clean lines.
