Check the Tresrey sight; maybe 8racing? Carbon chassis costs are usually in the $130.00 range for the 210 as I recall. Wait for the composite.

We just got notification the hexes shipped to AVID, so you'll see them up next week. For any product, go to the page and click "notify me" and you get an automatic email when we re-stock.

I just picked up a DEX210. I was wondering what is the benefit of running a mid motor versus a rear motor?

Mid motor inst all that popular here in the states, as it has less rear traction than rear motor. I like the way Mid feels, but unless your on a high bite, or carpet, rear motor will get you the most balanced car..IMO of course

Default Rs pro

Can anybody give me some insight, I just got a dex210 and I am running a rs pro and 6.5 tekin motor. I was running at the track today with 15 degrees of timing, no boost, and a 24 tooth pinion after about 12 minutes I had a motor temp of 120 and speed contro 165. I am new to the rs speed control but this seems high, anybody have some insight?

Thanks in advance

A 6.5 is a lot of motor in a 2wd, unless you drive Rc for a living,. Are you running on an 1/8 scale sized track? 165 is getting warm, not bad after 12 minutes though. Your Tekin has an onboard temp meter, if you let the car sit for a second, it will blink a single led, usually mine is led #3, I have never seen #6 myself.. I would drop the boost, and recheck, IMO you have enough power to be conservative with temps..
