What's the part number for the regular bore orings? I'm almost done with my build and all I have left to do are the shocks. I'm assuming these are the same shocks used on the DESC410R which I have no problem with leaks. Are other 210 owners experiencing shock leakage from the bottom seals AND cap seals?

The stock BB cap o-rings just suck. Even after beveling the edges I still had leaks. I moved to the small bore cap o-rings and haven't had an issue since.

Don't buy that servo (1251 low pro). I had that in the cougar and it broke very quickly. The gears strip too easily. Instead put a little more $$ and get the 1258/1257 savox way better titanium geared servos. None have given any sort of trouble after 6 months!!!

An Update to my setup sheet under John Copeland at PetitRC. I changed my oils from 25 AE in the back to 27.5, and front from 27.5 to 30 AE in the front. Dialed. Everything else the same, the best the car has ever been. leaving AE cars in turns in the dust along with Losi 22's. This is medium bite setup with shorty lipos. Car was on Rails Running with pretty much no tred left Barcoes front and rear. I am trying the B4.1 Hex mod next with Losi 22 rims to get the correct offset. No Spacers.

Never had an issue with them from the start.

Carpet begs for Mid Motors, I took a trip last year to Vancouver with my Cougar and it was the fastest damn car on carpet, on clay, non-blue groove tracks it was aweful no side bite at all. Spent nearly $200.00 on the newish Brass back plane for the chassis, and the exteneded 8mm CF Chassis, did me no good unless the clay tracks were soaked and traction was at a premium.Which didnt last long enough for me to get the traction needed becauser of Short Brain (SC trucks), Nowe my setup which I spent 8 hours on changing shock oils give me the rear motor advantage, whith the steering of a Mid Motor car. Nobreaking loose, no side stepping on jumps that land you directly into a turn, The buggy is Totally diealed, best 10Th Scale buggy I have ever driven, and that is not a short list. RB5 Worlds before it was a world, B4.1 before it was a worlds, and a Perfectly Setup 22. The Car is dialed, Perfect, so dialed. Sorry, just a bit drunk (holidays!) YAY! but I was beating Sponsored drivers in makshift stock clas races at OC/RC.

So are you more a fan of the Savox servos over the Hitech? I first was thinking about the Hitech ti servo. A little pricey but since I have the servo horns (and spares) plus already use them in other trucks I thought that was the way to go. Just never knew about these low pro servos and thought I should ask. Are they even worth looking into?

Savox do seem a lot cheaper though and might be worth considering switching?

the couger just destroys servo gears, everyone local that had one (we ran on carpet) was destroying servo gears until they put a modded servo saver (not much room) mean while all the 22s were fine and now the 210's, no one had issues without servo savers except the couger. Theres nothing wrong with the 1251, but I'd always go for a full sized servo if you have space, the motors are bigger and much better.

I didn't realize the big price difference with Hitech servos and Savox servos. Are the Savox servos as good? I mean it's a really big difference! Might be worth switching over to them.

He wanted part number for original bore orings.

Download the dex410 manual and look it up yourself ya lazy biatch

You guys need to use oil on the orings, and not nip it up too tight, and yes i did initially tighten it up too much but not anymore.
