I'm just stuck right now.

The 210 is really frustrating me lately.

That car has everything it could possibly have to make it better, besides a carbon chassis, and this weekend I pushed that setup to the extreme and it was super fast, but still not fast enough to make the A Main in freaking 17.5 at my home track.

As far as the car is concerned, I think I hit a peak with it. I feel it's as good as it is going to get. Unfortunately I can't get the track time I would like with both cars right now, but I also spent two days of practice this weekend working on both trying to get them to work for me.

my guess is the weight in stock 17.5 racing , i know for a fact the guy the won the Australian title in stock was using a 210 but it had carbon chassis and carbon towers and a lot of other weight removed from it to be just legal weight

i admit they are not the lightest car out there thats for sure but a full weight version of the 210 won the mod class as well at the same event

If they come out with the composite one-piece chassis that should help and simplify the rear bracing.

Just ordered this car and have questions about tools. What tool am I to use to install the circlip? Also the manual on-line mentions a .05 & 1.3mm Hex, I cannot seem to find those tool sizes anywhere, Is there a standard equivilent? Also the cross wrench I assume is the same as the one that comes in Kyosho and 22 kits, However I cannot find either of those tools. Any help in that direction would be greatly appreciated.

The 1.3mm is the same as .050, a common size. Also need a 5mm nut driver and 7mm nut driver, and a 2mm hex driver. For the circlip you need a small set of circlip pliers- I got mine from Mac Tools and it was the smallest they had. I swapped a handful of button head screws for cap head, and those take a 2.5mm hex driver. The cross wrench isn't a must for building, but most any metric cross wrench will do as long as it has 5 and 7mm on it.

Thanks Jonny5 I can get the circlip (snap ring pliers from Harbor Freight) I beleive. So the 1.5mm is the same as the .050, I assume the bleeder caps on the shicks are the same type screw that are on the AE Bleeder caps?

Same style, longer screw though. Very nice, smooth shocks and easy to bleed.

To install the circlip I used Craftsman snap-ring pliers. Worked great and not overly priced.

1.3mm and .05 inch are virtually the same size. If you have a set of standard hex wrenches, you probably already have the size you need. Here is just one you could get: ProTek R/C "TruTorque" Standard Hex Driver (.050")

No sure what you mean by cross wrench?
