14mm is only on TD cars. Yes, if you do the 12mm hex mod you can use hex wheels from the 22 or AE cars.

I may be the only one, but I really prefer bearings in the wheels. Not only will you give up the ability to change the axle position up front, but there is less slop in a std bearing setup compared to hex. I wish the new 210 sc had bearings up front too. Oh well.

I have noticed that too but, I'd rather change out the part every so often and gain the ability to interchange wheels. That and I ran my axles all the way trailing anyway... Ha

I have seen where many setups are 4 hole pistons. Are there any purpose made 4 hole pistons for the 210? I know there are blanks and people have filled in two holes to make 4 hole pistons. If no purpose built 4 hole which method is preferred Drilling or Filling?

Thanks

You can order cnc pistons from Ghea or Nick on Oople, both of which are in Europe. TD has some of their own coming out soon, but not yet available. If you have a set of blanks drilling isn't bad, but I recommend using a pin vise rather than a drill as the bits are small and break easily. Otherwise fill them by CA gluing a toothpick into the hole, trimming it off flush, and put a small drop of CA on both sides of the hole to cap it off.

hi there

with which pinion you would start with a Lrp x11 9.5t engine with stock spur?
i drive on a medium size track with low grip. 26 a good point to start?


here my second question.
i┤m running the gear diff on my dex210.
with which oil you would start on a low traction track▀ it┤s better to start with thicker shock oils like 800 to get better traction?


thank you for you help

I use 4 hole tapered 55's that I ordered from Nick. But I also used a hand-drill from snap-on with a #55 drill bit to drill out the stock blank pistons that came with the kit.

Default Servo horn

Is anyone using any other servo horns other than the stock plastic ones.? I run savox and am curious if the racers edge aluminum will work.

Thx,
Kevin

The Losi 22 aluminium servo horn does the job.

Most common setup is 4mm behind the carrier and either max trailing or 3mm on higher traction tracks.

GHEA pistons are at absolutehobbyz.com in the US. I run them on all my cars. Tapered side points down. I learned about them from Maifield. He runs them in his B4. I use the Losi 22 4-hole 1.3mm in my Kyosho big bores, which I run in my RB5 and my B4.

Have you ever tried them tapered side up?
