I go to the track Wednesday and I will grab my set up sheet and let you know.

I'd say all of them. The price for each spring set for the front and rear is just hard to beat. But I would say Jorn Neumann's spring choices are the best starting place for find the right springs for yourself. Dark green/dark blue for RM and light brown/black for MM.

Thumbs up good base set up

i had my first race this past sunday with my dex10. i could not get the rear end to stay behind the front end. i found that by extending the rear upper links to the outter most hole on the hub , then raised the inner up 2 mill with a 2 mm spacer i also use team losi truck springs yellow for the rear springs, with losi 22 front red spreings with 25.5 in the front and 25 rear. these small changes made a world of a difference. i was now doing 16 -17 laps qualifiers no prblem the ass end was very planted . i run on clay indoor . im so happy with my purchase of the dex 10 . it has helped my driving prowes ten fold. so if any new dex10 owners have the same problem . follow the rear caber set up . and play with the droop too as i found make a great tuning aid.. happy racing

Don't think so I don't see the addition of the extension pieces needed if it was +8

If its on the outside, make sure the screw lengths going through the gearbox are correct. If they are too long they will make contact with the outside of the plates.

Is this NORMAL or did my kit come with short ones? Tip to tip, mine is 105mm.

Also, one of the driveshafts is actually slightly bent. The car hasn't even left my desk yet. So now I have to take it apart and straighten that driveshaft?

p.s. - I like how the hole guides on the wing doesn't match the wing mounts as they are mounted on the car...nice...NOT! Experience taught me to check in advance. I pity the beginner/semi-intermediate builder who will have to buy a new wing if they drilled using the the hole guides.
some people have a same problem. The problem is the ball diff outdrive is shorter than the geardiff outdrive! if u gona landing a sideways in the rear may popping out! i switched to the geardiff and have no problem!
