+1. Ceramics all the way for the thrust.

Yes it is the best you can get, and they pay for them selves in durability as well..

Oh, here's one; tires? Medium track, hard clay, tight technical corners, dusty.
Thanks again, and much appreciated!

I would see what the fast locals are running. Maybe Groovies with either Double Dees or Hybrids?

Definitely check with the locals. When our outdoor track is swept and slightly dusty Cush loves the new 3D's from JC with Rips up front. Indoor he runs mostly Panther clay compounds- Bobcats up front, Switches or Rattlers out back. Bobcats steer like no other though- he likes a ton of steering but they are sometimes too much, so he flips to barcodes or scrubs.

Default gear ratio

Just looking for some info on gearing for the 210 with a 10.5 novak motor. Track size is 60 x 110

Thanks

I see many recommending the Tresrey rear toe block, but notice 3 flavors (.5, 1, and 2 degree). Which would be a good one to start off with (if necessary at all)? Also, is the Tresrey front bulkhead also a smart purchase? As you may notice, I'm trying to gather up all the upgrades prior to the build.
Cheers,
SoCal

Tresrey only offers one RF toe block right now- 3 deg toe and 2 deg anti squat. The other blocks you are seeing are RR, and adjust the inboard toe angle to achieve either 3.5 or 4 deg of inboard toe.

The front bulkhead is nice as many people add weight to the front anyway. You do need to use limiters to adjust droop travel, but that's no different than any other buggy. Without the droop "wings" on there, noticeably less clay packs in there racing indoor; Cush actually had so much pack in there one time (on a fresh track build) that the arm wouldn't move freely.

I would use the stock 3 deg toe/3 degree anti squat to start, build your car and then play with the anti squat until u get your setup down. Then u can decide if u want to get the alum ones, they r nice but not needed. Only if u decide u need to try the 2 degree anti squat when u r tuning would I say that it is a necessary part. As for the front bulkhead, it is not necessary, more of a bling item, IMO. Tresrey makes awesome stuff, just have to decide if you want a blinged out car, or just the necessary parts.

I have been looking at the Cream front tower. Looks like a nice piece with the added weight from the mount. Any feedback on it as a hop up?

Very stout and quality piece. I had seen his work before on some of the xfactory cars, and was definitely stoked that Tresrey decided to bring them to the states.

Bought a pair of durangos today. 210 and 410v3, really excited about getting these in and running them. I'll be coming off a b44.1 and b4.1 pair that has been really good just wanted something new. Anything I need to know right of the bat?

Im planning on using kit setup to start. We run on a small low-medium traction track with little rollovers and 1 double. Would I be headed right? Thanks in advance
