DIMEC20 installed. I can feel how much lighter the buggy is. Gonna use same setup, but did make an adjustment to 2 deg antisquat in rear. Now to paint the +8 body..I hate painting.

Looks good Dave. Have you had it on the scale with the shorty battery and the new plastic chassis?

We run our 210s in MM4 on a carpet track and we all run full droop (very bumpy).
Most of us never installed the screws at all.

Good luck. MM can be frustrating till you get a good base setup.

thanks for the uplifting words

My track is smooth, fully artificial euro-style track with carpet and artificial jumps in a school gym room, built for the day... there MUST be some UK guy around here who can tip me on this

cheers

I made a few custom dex210 carbon chassis and have had the same issue.

Put it down to the top deck pivoting on the side mounts on a hard nose impact.
Unfortunately this puts all the stress exactly on the kick up bend.

I have some ideas on how to fix this but have not had time to lay any more chassis up yet.

Yeah, this workaround you suggest is pretty lame. I'd rather use a dremel. But the point is... I shouldn't have to!

if you already solved the problem they why cry about it ,im not looking for that answer but both are ways work so whats the point of a company making new ones just for you guys that cry yes company's should have the problems solved out the box but sometimes it doesnt happen itll take time , go through the last 50 pages youll see why i feel this way about gear covers

For carpet setups, check petit.rc and Oople.com. Oople is another good forum that has mostly European members.

Anyone interested in a brand new built 210 with a sick custom paint job. I just found out our local track is not going to carry any more Durango parts because the distributers are jacking them around. I love durango stuff but if I cant even go to the track and buy a set of wheels thats not going to work for me.





Never been run and built by someone with 20 years experience. Rear motor 3 gear. Box, man and all other parts included.

Would be perfect for someone who hates building and hates painting

$275.00
