As it happens I bought 2 of the rear inner suspension mounts T3 / K3 for my 2 cars. Great pieces, with one exception, neither part had the inner set of holes for the tranny screws. I mark the hole locations and drilled them out on the drill press. They eliminated all the play from the car I have running for 6 months.

IMO the only absolutely necessary upgrade is an aluminum hinge pin holder for the rear arms. A few other nice upgrades are carbon steering rack and carbon front/rear towers. These few upgrades will make the car nearly bulletproof, and all can be purchased from TresreyUSA (and a few other places, but I prefer the red sexiness...) Some will say that you need to replace the ballcups- we have two 210s and still use stock ballcups. We've popped a few, but nothing out of the ordinary. The arms, hubs, uprights, and steering knuckles are some of the toughest in the 2wd buggy class. Two thumbs up from me

I agree. But I won't make a reference to the color. I may get yelled at .... The parts on the 210 are some of the strongest in the business. I use the Lunsford kit on both rigs. No prob with em. Get the camber plate, steering plate(do the bump steer mod), RW spurs, and as much Colored alloy you can get.

Just had my first few outings with the Buggy. Overall I'm loving it. But I broke the plastic Rear (RF) inner hinge holder and front tower.
Running a reamed out AE 81T Spur.
Built the stock ballcups per the build-guide on the TD website and not a single issue with them.

Just ordered the Alum TeamSR Hinge Pin holder and Front Tower.

Hey everyone, new to the DEX210 club and 10th scale buggy in fact. Purchased a friends roller with a ton of extra parts and then after putting a Tekin Rs + Fantom 7.5 I was just amazed at how great the buggy was I bought a second kit for even more parts/second car. Only thing I have broken so far was a rear shock tower, will definitely be investing in a CF one soon.

Absolutely loving the buggy, do have a question though hoping someone here could shed some light on. The rear wheels, is Drango phasing out the oversized hex style wheels in favor of pin only wheels? I noticed the extra set of wheels I have plus the ones carried at my LHS, practically the only TD items they carry, do not use the hexs like the ones included in the kit. Been running the wheels with just pin by using a pair of kyosho crush tubes as the spacers. Zero problems thus far. Would be nice to find an m5 spacer anodized in orange to match the accents of the car though.

Some people have taken to moving the ackermann rack underneath the bellcranks in order to eliminate bump steer.

IMO, I don't think it's necessary at all. I have 4mm on the steering blocks and have 0 bump steer.

One thing to keep in mind however, bump steer changes with your ackermann settings, and also which position you have your front axles (trailing or inline).

It's all going to be relative to how you setup your car. I don't need the "mod". Some people do because they can't get all of the bump steer out with normal methods.

Thanks for the responses, just need to sell my tlr 22 now. Also can the shorty lipos be used in the 210 or is it better to use full size packs?

They are actually phasing out the older pin style wheels, but with the popularity of the 210 and 410 V3 the 14mm rear wheels are selling out quick at most places. If you're in a jam, DE makes wheels for the 210 that work well.

Well...the bumpsteer only needs changing when you alter the caster angle, mostly because the bellcranks are on the same plane/angle as the front kickup angle which everything else runs parallel to.

I must say I've gone from being a RM4 fan to MM4, this is on rough medium grip track and on a smoother medium grip track...best midmount buggy I've driven so far well best 2wd in general!

TeamSR product update...

The durango dex210 aluminum rear mounts have had a running change from the last production run to add the two center holes in the blocks for the transmission case. These new updated blocks have already been sent out to many shops.

Another note: The optional carbon fiber Ackerman rack from TeamSR has four holes instead of three like the stock rack. With this optional rack you can move the ball stud further forward, or backwards giving you more tunability to acheive your desired handling.

Thanks for supporting TeamSR
