Double post...

Must say that I have been very impressed with TSR's products so far.
Alloy rear wheel nuts,Alloy bleeder screws,Shock seals.

All well made,and reasonably priced.

I have there Ti screw kit on the way,see how good it is quality wise.Should be great
Will also get me under weight,so I can put the weight were I want it.

I just asked the same question 2 pages ago. The search function works pretty well. Since then I have reviewed several set up sheets on Petitrc from Losi and AE. Many of them seem to say 2 hole or 4 hole are similar.

Looks like I'm going to have a DEX210 in my future. Traded one of my 4.1's for one

Whats the best way to increase rear traction. I am running RM3 with pretty much the box setup and a shorty in the middle with no added weight. I shifted the battery from front to back but it did not help with rear traction. I am running 3 degree rear toe and 3 degree kickup with the rear carriers in the mid position. I have the gear diff with 3k oil, will the ball diff be better for a slippery clay track. The Losi 22's I was running against seemed to have heaps of traction when I was sliping all over, we had the same tires. I wonder if i need to go back to the ball diff?

The correct tires could be the answer. I run the same rear setup you described and my 210 has more rear traction than my 22. I share rear tires between the 210 and the 22. I've taken tires off the 22 that were loose and put them in the 210 and the rear is stuck. I usually run the 22 in high traction conditions and use the 210 when traction is suffering. I also use a shorty in both cars.

Btw I also use a gear diff in my 210. I didn't like 3k. I've had 5k associated in there for a while now and really like it.

Proline Bulldog on the +8 chassis

Just need to trim carefully(which I need to touch up) but overall it fits. I know someone posted before, but this may be a slightly better angle



Can't wait to get it out on the track tomorrow

Very nice crawlin!!! Jpas, are you using the same insert in the tires as your friend? Remember the tires is the only contact with the track. If it's slippery will be better you mount an extra soft insert...but you will see it in how the tire is desapairing...and you don't talk about the links and the roll center...add some shims in the rear and test if not maybe the problem is in the front with too much grip.

Oh so the Bulldog DOES fit the +8? good to know. I was worried about it not being wide enough

it is a BIT too narrow. but just SLIGHTLY. If you put a thin strip of velcro on the sides like some do, you wouldn't notice it.

Rob

A little bit of work with a heat gun will let the body conform to the side pods very nicely. I put the Finnisher body on Cush's buggy and got it fitting very well like this.
