I agree. I wonder how much it would cost me to get one fabricated that was +6mm longer. I'll check against my brothers B4.1 to see the difference in chassis length. I really liked the B4.1 with the extended chassis on it. Was stable everywhere, didnt have to change much of anything either. Other question would be where to extend it. Probably right in the middle.

Would be better to do the extension at the front of the car, right behind the servo mount bulkhead, like Jorn had at Reedy.

+8mm B4.1 has around 281mm wheelbase

Stock DEX210 is around 274mm at max....so +8mm would put it at around 282mm

Stock RB5 is around 270mm which was shorter than both the DEX and a standard B4.1.....so with +13mm it would be at around 283mm. I haven't heard of too many people that like the +13 RB5...most seem to like around +10mm. A friend of mine runs a +8 and he loves it.

I definitely think the DEX210 could use a little more length......+6-8mm should be perfect.

The RB5 is a few mm shorter than the B4 if I recall. Im not sure if that number is 5 or not (13-8). I know the factory guys have been testing everything from 6-13 i believe and have found the 13 to work best. I guess we will see.

been reading this thread for a fair while and now finally have the car in my hands and all ready to hit the track

would just like to say thanks to the guys that take the time to share what they find works and does not work with these cars

i will be running mod buggy with a boosted 10.5 which should be plenty for the 2wd

looking forward to turning some laps and giving feed back as well
