The rtr comes with a +8mm composite chassis, cab forward body, gear diff instead of ball diff, only the parts for 3 gear rear motor and a servo saver.

Any reason to get the RTR over the kit?
Front:
24mm ride height, -1 deg camber, 30 deg castor, 3mm trailing, 5mm bump steer, 1mm between castor block(top & bottom), shock -mid on tower/outside arm, camber link- inside tower w/2mm spacer/outside hub, 1.3x4 pistons, Losi 27.5 oil, black spring. 2mm internal limiters nub cut off on bulkhead

Rear: RM
24mm ride height, -1 deg camber, 3 deg anti-squat, 3 deg toe in, camber link #3 on hub w/2mm spacer on inside, hubs middle, shock- mid on tower/arm, 1.3x4 piston, Losi 25 wt, drk green spring

shorty pack in middle, Exotek brass weight under servo, TD alum rear hubs/2.5mm spacer, JC wing w1.2in cut off, JC Finnisher, SP 8.5V3 geared 81/24, mid hole on Exotek steering rack.

JConcepts Barcodes -gold w/your fav inserts. Tires will be the biggest factor so run what the fast guys are running.

Was real good at CRCRC indoor med/high bite. Gonna try +8 molded DIMEC20 chassis and body next time out.

RTR does have +8mm chassis, but gear diff and only option for RM. I would go reg kit.

Are the stock kit springs usable, I assume dark blue front and lt blue rear? Or should I just snag up a set? Don't really want to buy the full kit but wouldn't mind getting 1 extra set. I was thinking Dk Green front and Dk Blue rear.

Yeah, but they seem more designed for mm IMO. Here is a setup that uses them..

Okay guys, I finished the transfer from alloy to +8mm Dimec last night. It took all but 30min max... Servo wire routing is improved, chassis flex is noticable especially during the build. My biggest problem was I cannot use my freshly painted Finnisher body for the DEX210, the new side pods are wider toward the front and do not allow the body to stay on evenly... So be prepared to buy the TD cab forward body if you plan on using the plastic +8mm chassis. I have not run it yet, but I will race with it on Tuesday.

Good choice. I would also pick up a step softer...I believe it black for frt and drk green for rear.

That stinks, I have both +8's in route, but i didn't order a body..It looks like i have some fabricating to do..Let us know how it feels, what/if you had to change in your set-up etc...

what i did is when i got the longer chassis i get the heat gun and warm it up the body and put it on the new chassis. so i deform the body. its a little bit ugly but its work untill i got the new body! worked for me! worth a try!

The new look of these 210 buggies is horrible. I'm not sure what is happening with TD but I'm not impressed. They went from having one of the sickest looking cars to the absolute dumbest.
