You have your chassis already?

This won't work. I tried. The SC/ST axles put the hex too close to the steering arm to work with the offset of the 410 front wheels. The inside of the wheel will rub the steering arm where the steering link/turnbuckle attach. Even if it didn't rub, it would narrow the front of the car about 10mm.

Not that I care to argue, but I've seen it done so it's possible. We run the standard setup anyway- with any hex mod for the front you lose the ability to adjust axle trail, and we use that feature fairly often.

+1. The axles inserts are a very nice tuning feature. I'm currently using the AE axles from Tresrey. Either way, I have the Kyosho hex steering setup ready to go if I feel I ever want to use it.

This is one of the many things that makes this car better than the competition, is out of the box adjustability.

any fitting issues or problems with the build ? cant really beat it for the price i was never gonna buy a +8 but i saw the difference in cush buggy with the cf +8 and it looked like a buggy to push to its limits of staying on all four

Does the DEX210 kit come default with the aluminum steering rack or front hinge pin brace like my DESC210 kit came with? I'm getting conflicting answers.

Also, are the rear hinge pin and blocks plastic or aluminum?

Yes, It can be done but not with the SC/ST axles and steering arm as supplied. The axle must be extended about 5mm and spaced correctly. I just didn't want people buying the axles and steering arms only to find they don't have everything they need to get this mod to work correctly.

DEX210 Kit comes with Plastic Steering rack, alum front hinge pin brace.

RR hinge ping block is Alum, RF is plastic.

Well the one I saw may have had ST axles on it as they are longer than the SC axles. I really didn't pay much attention to it or any other hex conversions since we'll never change away from bearing fronts.
