LHS had them for a little cheaper but still way better then spending on lundsford. I didn't get the Ti ball studs though.

They actually might not be Ti lol but better then stockers. I just baught them and slapped them on really.

They actually just cut down the side rails to fit a losi body on the dex210. I have seen this before. i think losi's look horrible so not sure why someone would do this but its just my opinion.

but they are shaving weight off by doing so i guess

That puts far too much leverage against that ball stud.

When you run 25 caster, the pitch is less, and the steering block is rotated forward, rasing the end. So you end up having to run less.... like 2 or 3mm, which works just fine (i don't recall the exact mm needed).

I was running 25 degrees of caster AND the cptamerica mod, and to get 0 bumpsteer, I was down at I believe 0mm of washers under the steering block ballstud. So... if you are set on running 25 degrees of caster, the factory setup works fine. If you are running 30 degrees of caster, you wont be able to achieve 0 bumpsteer without either running 7+mm of wahsers under the steering block ballstud, or.. use the cpt.america steering rack mod

hope that helps.

Well did the Captain America mod last night. No issues at all. running center hole in rack with the std lock nuts and no hitting on the arm. Now all I gotta do is go try it out. The car is great and very consistent on the track

Went club racing with Cush last night running the +8 chassis on the outdoor track. He had a tough race, missing the landing on the big quad on the first lap and the lead two cars got away clean, but he was able to improve his fastest lap times from a 28.6 with the std chassis to a 27.7 last night. We're going back to practice tonight and try a few things to tighten up a slight exit push, but overall he's pretty happy and the car looks good. My taper pistons showed up too so we'll be testing those as well.

I am, I make 0/3, 1.5/3 and 3/3 blocks, as well as shims to raise the 0/3 to the other 2 angles as well. I'm also working on an aluminum +8mm chassis, if things don't get delayed again its looking like maybe the end of the month for those.

I'm thinking of getting the DEX210 to race this indoor season. What spares should I carry if I am the only one using a Durango? Any mods I need to do?
Thanks! Hate to be a noob on this one but after reading the whole DESC410R and about 1000 pages of the SC10 4x4 threads I'm a little rctech threaded out. Search didn't turn up anything useful.
