I've got the aluminum hubs a well, it looks like 3mm is the stock height, has anyone measured that? 4mm seems too high, thoughts?

Thanks, so my gearing is basically the same as the 22, thats good, I have plenty of room to gear up. Anyone know the smallest pinion you can fit with the 69t spur?

Does this buggy drive like a 22 or more like a B4.1? I have a B4.1 and have been considering a second buggy. Not sure if I want another B4 or try the Dex for a change. I did not like the way the 22 drives but very much like the B4. Just curious. Thanks.

I'd say it's much more B4 like than 22 like. It has proven to be more durable than the B4's at my local track by most that drive them.

^^Completely agree w/ Randy. Make sure you get the Carbon Fiber ackerman, FTW/Tresrey both make them. You should have zero problem with turning, I'm able to get inside on all the B4.1s and 22s at the track.

The issue with Dex210 is the weight, being around 4 oz heaiver (Chassis only) when compared to 22s or B4s puts the Dex210 at a slight disadvantage at most med. indoor tracks. My B4 is pretty dialed (after almost a year of tunning), my 3 weeks old Dex is only about .4 sec or so slower so the potential is there.

Trying to see what gearing would be best to start with on a 100x50 track like rc excitement using a Tekin 17.5. Would I be best to start out with a 69 rw spur ??

What class are you running? I don't think 4 oz would be very noticeable in 13.5 boosted would it?

More turn in then a B4? I don't believe it. My B4 can cut on a dime.

17.5 non-timing. 4 oz is 4 stripes of the AE lead..its huge in 17.5.

4 ounces is a lot of weight for any car. I can tell you that some of the parts the team has been testing does lighten the car.

Well I am going to get the Dex. I really like my B4 but I race 3 classes already and during the off season that does not give me very much time to fix broken cars. I'll pickup the Dex for a backup buggy or make the B4 my backup depending which one I like. Thanks for your help.

Because my first two pre-Hobbico kits were complete and i haven't heard of others missing anything either.

Oh well.....
If you need some, PM me, I believe I have some extras.

Thanks for the offer. But I got impatient and ordered the missing parts from Losipartshouse so I can get them in by tomorrow. I later found out I was also missing the shock piston shims. I also ended up calling Tower and they will be sending me replacement parts, but I don't know how long it'll take.
