Guys I had a brand new indoor red clay track just open in my area. I look foward to do some real testing this winter. I had a chance to run on it Friday night, and my 210 was pretty consistent, managed to finish 4th in 2wd mod. Lap time in the 14 sec range.
Has anyone played with more antiquat? Changing height of inner ball heights on the rear.?

So basically a higher inner mount. This would create more exit traction..

Just wondering if the angle of the camber link really matters in what direction it slants towards if that makes sense.

Would that be considered a bad thing Raul? Wondering if the opposite of a lower inner mount would be more favorable.

You want the distance between the arm and outer ball to be more than the inner, if anything. This will give you a little more initial grip and slightly better corner entry steering. A more aggressive angled link will also let you run slightly softer dampening, due to the link trying to "self center".

I've been wanting to get the TD rear hubs and also shave down the rear inner mount to give me some more rear traction, but not sure how that would affect the strength of the mounting.

Good advice, I'll switch to 1mm inner spacer and 3mm back on the outer hub. That should give me a high roll center with enough camber gain in sweeping turns.

If you're wanting to lower your ballstud height you can get this: http://www.tresrey-usa.com/tresrey-a...ex210-dest210/ and then trim off the mounting ears on the trans case.

For all those talking about taper pistons:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXCMXA&P=ML
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXCMXB&P=ML
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXCMXC&P=ML

I have a bunch from Nick on Oople, but got them before these were available. No need to order overseas anymore.

Those Durango tapered pistons are a great find! Thanks for that link. They are less than half the price of the others as well!
