Tower has the aluminum rear hubs for the 210 in stock right now. At $54.00 though, kinda steep.

Oh did not notice them, bit overpriced I agree. I hope the ST truck fronts are regular sized hexes though. Really wanna buy local wheels to support the shops and maybe get premounts!!

Losi 22 springs are direct fit, as are Kyosho big bore springs. At one time the Durango springs were out of stock so guys were looking for other ones that fit. The Losi springs also have less coils, so the spring is more progressive compared to a similar rate TD spring.

Hopefully STRC will make some aftermarket hubs for the car. The plastic is nice and I havent had any problems, but would preffer aluminum hubs back there. A 2 piece hub like AE's aluminum hubs would be ideal so if a ball stud broke off it wouldnt be such a nightmare to try and remove.

Anyone else noticed that TD's diff. oil is much more "tackier" than say AE's?
Guessing the benefit is that it will last longer, but wouldn't it create more resistance?

what do u guys thing about the savox 1251 compared to the 1257 or 1258 i just dont want the titanium for the reason that it being strong it creates other weak points inside the servo right? ide rather a stripped gear than replacing more expensive parts or a whole new servo

Never had a problem with the 1258 in my 210 (or 410 for that matter). I always run ali servo horns, never stripped gears and thats with a lot of track time.

Cush has been running the 1258 with Tresrey CF rack and alum. servo horn for months now. The weak spot is now the bellcrank, but only one has broken and it was a gnarly crash. It's not worth any concern IMO.

i know alot of buggy guys worry about the front weight figured low profile but its 12.1 g difference than the 1257 and would let me ether throw the reciever and transponder behind it or possibly the esc

The 210 is heavy on the rear and many guys are adding weight (like the Cream brass weights from Tresrey), and on Cush's buggy we have a shorty pack with the battery stop all the way forward just behind the servo, and he runs it usually within two foam pads of full forward. If you have the servo already it should work just fine, but I wouldn't get it specifically to decrease the front end weight on the car, I would run a full size servo for weight and strength.

I run like Cush's car. Battery stop by Cream, one foam spacer then the shorty Venom 3800 60c, then the speedo is in the back taking up the rest of the space.

Also I run a full size servo Hitec 7940th. The BEST!

Ranga is the lightest on the rear compared to all 2wd out now. I was around 35/65 from what I remember, so i disagree when people keep saying It's too rear heavy....
