Hey guys, I'm going to buy the Dex210 and I want to know what u guys are running in them? Motors, servos, etc. Also what upgrades you would recommend. I was looking at carbon fiber shock towers. And finally what spare parts I should buy or what is a weak point on it? I would really appreciate any feed back on this. Thanks.

Has anyone found a BETTER shock O-ring?? The stock ones are just junk. They leak when new and are tight on the shock shaft before you even put oil on them. This = a junk shock in my opinion.

No but if you think your shocks are fine then empty the oil and clean real good then oil o ring and slide it over the shock shaft and feel how much resistance there is. All of that resistance works out to be about 10 weight in oil when your done putting your shocks together. So I am looking for a better seal like a kyosho p3 grooved o-ring or something close.

big bores mate

yes so what they get a bit of dirt in the shock oil

but if your a racer then you should be changing your shock oils before race days anyway and it should never be a problem

i rebuild my big bores heapds of times before i replace the O rings etc

green slime and build away if your changing the oils in the shocks like there meant to there should be no problem

on a different note

Tresrey rear hubs ? anone got a part number i have searched Tower like someone posted as they were there? but i cant find any and want to place a order with Tresrey as the plastic hexs are binding if i titghten the wheel nuts up to much

What you are describing is called 'stiction' in the dirtbike world. It can effect handling, but only really in hi-speed damping(speed of shock shaft, not vehicle), such as a small bump or rock on the track, not landing from a double for example. There are a few things that can cause it. The o-rings are definitely one of them, BUT. Make sure you do not have too much compression on the o-rings from the nut, you may find that something is not assembled correctly in the seal head, or, you just cranked the bottom nut too tight. Barring that, you could try sanding the guides down abit, to lessen the preload on the o-rings. Another thing to look at is the shafts, the kit ones are not finished all that good IMO, give them a polish, helps alot. Or you could get the Ti coated ones. If any of the aforementioned are the cause, just putting in different o-rings wont really solve your problem.

Will a standard size servo like a savox 1258 fit in this buggy? Or do I need a low pro?

I tried the kyosho seals but found that they do need extra spacers added in to make them work as they are not a direct replacement.

Tresrey usa is where I got mine

I was having the same problem with the rear wheels binding a bit when you tighten down the wheel nut, no problems with the tresrey rear hexes.
