Actually, it seems like the chart is incorrect. I just counted the coils on the Black springs and they are not 10 turns.

If I had to pick one I would say the 210 just because of all the tuning options.
There were quite a few of them at OC/RC yesterday for Saturday practice. Some looked really good, and some looked really bad. Im guessing mostly traction problems, and one guy was running mid-motor which sucks on OC/RC clay (Used to own a Schumacher Cougar). It looked like a pretty good buggy. Are they fragile? My B4.1 +8 never broke unless someone t-boned me, very durable car.

IMO they are very durable, I ran mine last weekend on a fast 1/8 scale track, and did quite a few durability tests, and nothing..Tough car, although I have the CF towers and steering rack, as those seem to be a few week spots if there are any.

So if I ran stock towers and steering rack what would be mandatory spares to carry on hand?

Not mandatory, but a good idea..I personally have only cracked a front tower, and it was a pretty good hit, but others have the other parts give them problems.

Only thing I've broke was the front left a-arm, but that was from a mean tumble hitting the top of the tripple. It has held up better than my B4, I've broken a-arms on that with less violent crashes.

I am running RM4 now and at first took some time to get use to, I am starting to really like it in this configuration for my track. I do miss the air brakes thou.

Good luck Auto, there any bumps?
I won the B-Main 17.5 buggy race today. Times were more consistent than Saturday, and the track was more dry today as well.

All I did from yesterday was run custom made JC green Pressure Points in the rear. They hooked up very well in the groove line but once I stepped off-line the rear-end got very loose. My JC green Hybrids felt very good in the groove, and were more forgiving if you got off-line any. I probably should have ran the Hybrids today.

Also, would have liked to try less rear toe. I was still fighting some mid/exit corner push. Corner entry was very good with both tires, and so was overall rear traction, so I think I would have been slightly faster if I dropped to 3.5 rear toe.

Oh well, I won, B-Main, but still wasn't a bad race.

Hey, a wins a win, and it looked like there was a pretty good turnout..probably not the result you were looking for, being your home track, but it sounded like it was a different animal this weekend..Nice one Auto..and thanks for the updates..

Thanks for the input. as I see them more and more on the track i'll get a better idea, maybe ask someone with one of the more dialed in setups if I can take one for a spin. I know exactly how to sertup a B4 for OC/RC, But wouldnt mind trying something new. Just not the 22, already tried that and hated it.

Has anyone found an alternative to the stock servo arm? Maybe a Losi aluminum arm? I was out racing yesterday and I have about 8 races on the car and I dusted one spektrum servo and my savox is on the way out and I was thinking about trying a S9551, but I dusted my Futaba horn on the savox last night as well. Now I'm thinking it might be smart to go with an aluminum horn and a hitec 7940, but I don't know of any aluminum horns that would work off hand (and the plastic horns are backordered until July. GP has done a great job getting the important stuff in, this was kind of a weird one.)

I use the Hitec 7940 with the Racer Edge pro horn. I use 7940's in every car I own.

The TLR servo horn fits perfectly- correct length and offset. Many others can be made to fit also, but that one is almost like it was made for the 210.
