To anyone that's driven a losi 22 and a dex210 which did you like better? Either one outperform the other by a lot in any aspect?

I've had both. I ran the 22 for a couple of months. Great car, very durable, but I could not get the set up to work for me. Went to a 210 and have been very happy since. I look at the 210 as a cross between the b4.1 and 22. Stable, AND responsive. But for what it's worth I am just a middle of the pack sort of driver, with a few good showings every now and then. I raced the 22 with little success. Took off a year, and recently started racing again with the 210. I think the 210 will be a contender even if I'm not. Easy to tune for different tracks, and if your the adventurous type, you have four motor configs to choose from.

I am doing the rear motor setup. I will take some more pics for you. It went on the car easy, all the holes lined up great.

Did you happen to check the weight of the chassis before mounting it?
Does somebody carry these chassis or did you order directly somehow?

Will the rear kick up add / subtract traction or neither? If it does add traction, is 3 degree the most amount of traction?

I ordered direct from ProGrade (had to email) on the website.
I didn't weigh the chassis but compared to my stock metal it felt lighter.

Where is ProGrade located? I sent an email this afternoon and awaiting a response.

Ok thanks. I have a 22 buggy and 22 truck coming to me this week and was wondering how good they would perform. The only tracks open right now are indoor tracks that are either hard clay or the type where subcultures and cityblocks excel. My track here at the house is a little too rough for 2wd buggy I think. So I will have to travel some to get some practice with it.

Ok, thank you for the info.

Will need to look into that then.

They do not accept PayPal and want you to email credit card info to order, I'm not ok with that. Maybe I will get a prepaid visa to order.

Here is the response I received ProGrade.

Hi Matt,

The chassis are in stock. They are 13 grams lighter than stock.

The Red Chassis is 85.00
The Natural is 75.00

Shipping is an additional 5.95 to zip 60914

Thanks,

Rebekah


Sorry we don't take paypal. I can process your order manually with a credit card.

I need your shipping address, card number, exp and 3 digit code.

Thanks,

Rebekah

There are not many set ups to reference online for the 210 truck, but I got some set up and tire advice from some Losi team drivers at my local track. Their trucks looked amazing. Very fast. I think you will be happy, but I have to say both my 210 buggy and 210 truck are very easy to drive. I had a guy come up to me and wanted to know my buggy set up because he said it looked planted. I just take it for granted because it has been pretty dialed since the first day I drove it.

Are any of you guys breaking the plastic RTR chassis? I have seen quite a few break in the rear where the RR castor block mounts. I made a couple Stainless steel chassis plates if anyone is interested. A guy broke his during practice before the first race. We installed the plate on the broken/cracked chassis and lasted the whole race day 3x 6 minute quals and a 8 minute main. I used to make these back in the day for the ZX-5. Pm if your interested. Thanks...

I had a 22, now have a dex210. The 22 was great when it worked. I believe that car is so stiff torsionally, that it was not as forgiving as the dex210. If your track is consistant, then the 22 is fine. If the track changes some from run to run you may end up frustrated because the 22 will really feel different as the track changes. Same with the 22 sct (had that too, now went durango).
