I did.. I even posted the video on the previous page of this forum... But if you've all built a DEX210, what side did you put the open bearing part of the thrust bearing on? It just threw me off when the RC Car Action article stated the opposite of what you see the guy do in the video... No where in the video though do they mention what side the thrust bearing goes on.. You just see him put it facing the small spacer...

It really shouldn't make a difference which way the caged thrust is in there as long as the washers are in the correct order. Technically you could use regular thrust balls and have the same function. No issue there whatever way you placed it.

Going by RC Shox's description on the website, it seemed like it was a temporary fix until spare gearboxes were more readily available. I didn't know it was an alternative mount like the Tresrey.

I have the rcshox but frankly the stock mounts not yet broken with 3-4 solid days of crashes and tumbles.

I broke my inner camber mount as soon as I switched ballcups and rod ends. Thanks god that marcus made those parts or I would have been SOL for quite a while.

Stock ballstuds and ballcups work great, no need to switch. I had the Tresrey mount on the back but took it off recently.

I use the HPI 4.8mm ball studs and the 4.8mm lunsford ball ends with the 3.5 super duty buckles. Been golden ever since popped one with a front smack in the house while testing but it was at full tilt.. Never again on track though....

Just put the gear diff together and its seems to bind a little bit like it compresses to much. Should I just allow it time to break in?

This is the guide i used

Thats good that they worked well for you, but not for me. I recently switched to the lunsford kit and had one ballcup that would pop on and off with easy. It actually popped off just from a hard landing, not even a crash. Since then i started using the 22 cups instead of the lunsford cups and no more problems.

This car is a tank! This past weekend I was coming onto the straight and popped a wheelie due to the awesome power of Orion. When the wheelie happened I lost traction and spun out while a E buggy ran into me at full speed. The only thing that happened was a popped front camber ballcup. I popped it back on and ran immediately. Kept the same ballcup on the entire night with no issues.

+1 on the 22 cups. I only run them on the rear camber link though.
