I'm comming from a B4 with the same FD and run 81 in mod and 78 with a 13.5. I'm just used to running those. Jconcepts just released their Silent Speed gears for the B4. Nice to have those for the 210, just open up the middle hole for the Durango and bingo!

I was looking at doing something like that but the wife hasnt given me the go ahead to purchase machining equipment for the house yet.... lol. My assumption is that they will have option gears out soon. We'll see this weekend how the 87 works and go from there.

If you're talking about the cheap red handled ones you can get on A-main... i had a pair and literally threw them in the trash... they are awful.

I didn't have snap ring pliers handy but was able to work the clip in with a bit of finesse and a small flat blade screwdriver. I am a big believer in quality tools so I will get some small pliers from Mac or Snap On when they stop in my work this week.

I just placed my order with Amain! I was like number 51 on the list so everyone that ordered from them might want to check the their backorder status.

I know where there is one... It's got my name on it. Should I?


On another note, I'll see if I can get my hands on Billy Fischer's set up sheet this weekend. I suspect he will be their main US "electric" driver. He'll have his 210 at the SIGP this weekend. Rumor is, it's real fast...

AMain said I'd get an email but did not. I checked my back order status on their website it said I can order. Pulled the trigger and am expecting it mid week. I hope I get to run it this weekend.

Thanks Slash'em

Got my backorder on the way should see it Wednesday, lots of time to build and paint ready for this weekend.

Can someone who has one already clear up a recent question? What front wheels work on this chassis??? Thought standard B4 wheels were good, but somone posted about SAE vs Metric Bearings.

Thanks

This kit uses metric bearings so B4 front rims will not work. I did get verification that TRF201 front wheels will work but they are 1mm narrower per side.
