There are enough tuning chassis for the dex210
8 racing carbon
8 racing carbon 8 mm
dimec 8 from Td
Dimec20 8 from td
Tresrey has one
Rdrp will bring at march the sexiest one in alloy +11

For me there is no need to look for another aftermarket chassis.
I think there is enough

I have the stock alloy chassis, 8 racing carbon stock length chassis, 8 racing +8mm chasdis and dimec20 chassis.
I like the stock lenght carbon most

I run a 69/34 with a Hacker 17.5 at SRS and Glitch. Nismomike runs a 69/35 at the same tracks. Since you are driving in the same areas as we are, I would start there.

You could buy two of the aluminum chassis the new guy is offering for the price of one Tresrey or Eight racing.

Everyone has their own preference. I would like to see a reasonably priced +8 similar to the stock metal chassis as opposed to the plastic ones. As far as carbon is concerned, it sure is beautiful, is lighter, but costs a lot. I can't justify the price ratio to my skill level at this point. Personal preference.

As far as +11, I have not read too much about it yet. What body do you use on a +11? The cab forward school bus body?

Besides look at it this way, the more options, the more competition. The more competition, the better the prices.

+1 I wanted a +8mm aluminum lightweight chassis for running stock. Rcjunky is the only one I would consider. Look at the "sexy" RDRP chassis. Every pic it's in mm on and Astros track or carpet. The +11 makes the DEX the same length as a 22. All the TLR guys want a -5 chassis. Even cutting them down making prototypes. At least here on AZ and Cali. Large outdoor dirt/clay. I can't wait to get my chassis. Don't complain about "too many" options. If you don't want one, then don't buy one Beneck. You don't know what others need. +8mm and lighter than stock for $80, YES PLEASE THANK YOU SIR.

Any one run a 10.5 in there 210?? Getting ready to hit the track for the first time with this buggy hopefully this Friday. I could use some gearing help if you's don't mind...All I have right now is the stock spur gear.
Here is a short clip of the track I will be running on to give you idea of the size of the track. Thanks in advance!!



And a couple pics of the track...

So, when will the DEX 210 V2 be released? Any time a manufacture releases a lot of hop up parts for a vehicle then a new buggy soon follows.

Anyone know if its in the works?

Thanks, Jim

All ready to go tonight This will be my first time running my +8mm chassis. Only took about 30mins to swap chassis. This one was made before the lightweight idea, and weights the same as stock. As for bodies, all you need to do is move the front body post forward. I still have to re wire the car to fit my nice body (my ugly one is mega hacked to fit the wireing at the back) but I just have a big oal body post hole and a gap at the front of the body where it goes around the bulkhead thing-a-ma-jig

and it seems me and Nismo have the same view point on my chassis, half the price and nothing else is differant other then the length, with the option of a lighter one, you only change on thing on your car for the next practice session, why change chassis length and material, ya never know what made the differance.

I know that is the option I am interested in. Seen to many of the "plastic" +8s not fairing well locally. I have wanted to try a +8 that is like the stock chassis. I think this is exactly what I am looking for....

What are you using between the side servo/bulkhead mount and side pods? Looks like that's where the 8mm comes into play? Will you be including/machining a part to go along with the chassis to fill that gap? Or can I just mount the side pods towards the front a little more?
