Then with more kits being sold, you have a greater demand for the parts as they break. My local "HobbyTownUSA" even started carrying the kits.

It just cancels itself out
Plus it takes a while to establish trends and stock demand. They are working on improving the stock availability all the time and it will improve over time, but unfortunately they did run out of some items.

I don't know if this would work, but the dex410 sway bars mite work? I have not seen any aftermarket sway bar kits for the dex210.

Nothing commercially available at this time. If you can cut/bend some wire of your own, finishing it off isn't bad at all. The straps to retain a sway bar on the front tower are in the kit, so you need a sway bar pivot ball, a few link ends (should have spares from the build, same ones as the servo link uses), and some 8-10mm set screws.

....and just when you thought you had already seen the dumbest thing in your life..... along comes the 'Los-i-rango'.

Actually, I think it turned out pretty nice.

I know some have had the rear of chassis break especially with the dimec 20 stiffer material. I made a rear brace for my short course tonight that is a little oversized to put some more meat around the rear of the chassis where the screws are tearing thru chassis.
Its not the prettiest and I have no awesome tools to use. Just a dremel and a power drill to get this project done. Lol
Figured I would share in case people were looking for ideas on this.

Nevermind the carpet fibers all over my truck. Needs an air hose taken to it

Exclamation turnbuckles

Just picked up the Lunsford kit with turnbuckles and ball studs. Which ball cups seem to be the best? Are the lundsford worth a shot? Or should I go with the white J Concepts?

Ya the gear diff is great on med-high bite.

5,000wt losi diff fluid is ideal, I'd drop back to 2k for loose outdoor tracks.

sorry I run the 5k in the desc210, the photo's above confused me to the thread. I'm not sure how well the buggy would do w/ 5k as I run the ball diff on all surfaces w/ the buggy (at least so far) I have a second dex210 coming setup w/ a gear diff so I will play a bit and see.

Use the Lunsford ball cups that came with the turnbuckles. I haven't had a cup pop off since I put them on.

Looks good but be carefull of the dust. Breathing in carbon fiber dust is not a good idea. Some say its bad, some say its not. But i would wear a mask when working with the stuff just to be sure.

Yeah 5,000wgt seems sluggish on the high speed corners, and the car doesn't rotate goods enough for me that heavy. I also run my ball diffs a little on the loose side. I like the rear a little free.
