So I take it you can get the new 1.0 taper pistons and then drill out the size you want? 1.3, ect.

Maybe they should add some toothpicks to the kit!
They do have them as an option- Tower has them in stock. They are 1.0 hole size, so you can drill them to whatever size you like.

Ok let me tell you guys something i did something crazy, i ran mydingo for the first time at our trophy race this weekend and that was the best thing i probably have done in a while it was so consistant and stable, on my second round i picked up 3 seconds and made the A main which doesnt happen hardly ever unless there is fewer people we had i think we had about 45 mod buggies if anyone has any doudts about this car dont its a smooth and durable car thanks to durango for making a reely good car and now im anxious to get the truck.

Blingy- that is the same night I had last weekend with my buggy. Had a round where I was in second right behind a guy that I have not been behind in the past. The owner came up to me and said "No offense, but that buggy has to be pretty good...." Now I have been racing a ton of nitro and had not raced mod buggy since 4200's were the hot batteries. But after the first practice laps I knew it was a great buggy.

Kinda thinking about getting a ST to with my buggy. Have not seen much feedback on the truck yet.

Jeff

Someone told me not to buy a DEX210 because it needs a ton of hopups to be any good, is that true? I'm planning on buying one as soon as I sell my brand new VE8, but don't want to if they require a bunch of aftermarket stuff to be competitive.

jonski- that is the positive of the buggy. It does not need a ton of hop ups out of the box. I am running mine box stock (except the nice red battery hold downs and a rw 81 spur). I have seen the 22 guys putting a good amount of hopups on their at our track.

I do look to put the graphite steering rack on mine as I have read on here that it is one of the best hop ups. But at $20 I can handle that....

Ah, think what I got out of that was, the guys running RM3 were looking for steering? And you, running RM4 were looking to lose some off power steering? The car in RM4 is a little pushy on power, so you will definitely notice the off power, so if there is traction available it is usually not the best option IMO, depending on driving style..RM3 will give more on power, but you have to get the car right for your track, the car will respond to even the smallest changes..
I tried RM4, although I liked the forward bite, I could never get it to turn and inside line, so I switched back to RM3, here's a few pics:
