Race one is in the books and the verdict is in, this car ROCKS Played with shocks and tires most of the day and ended up with 4 hold 1.3's with 30wt and dark green up front and 4 hole 1.2's with 20wt and black springs in the rear. This car is SO smooth on the track, plenty of steering and the shocks are awsome. Only problem I ran into is popping the camber link off the rear hub, happened twice in practice and my first qualifier before I swapped it out with a losi ball/cup setup, no problem after that.

One happy DEX210 owner

Which would mean the development of a longer chassis for large/fast tracks. (also good for the R/C gods that can actually use a 6.5 on 60C+)

However, the car looks really good right out of the box. No need to jump to far ahead on the development time line.

Seeing that the motor is on the traditional side it's an RM3 setup. The RM4 flips the motor to the other side.

If your links are the same left to right then look at the steering rack while the cars tires are centered. IF the rack is off to one side then you need to adjust the steering link to servo connection.

Mine is only different by 8 on the epa's left to right.

Did you center the rack with the subtrim first? My subtrim is about 20 to one side, but the epa is within 5 of each other on the steering throw.

I'll take some pics later today.
The c clip is fully seated and thrust barrings are in correctly I'M POSITIVE.
I rebuilt the diff with ceramic balls and it felt like there was spot it was tighter when turning it out of the car.
Are there any other manufacturer rings that will fit the diff, something available?

Just looked at a 210 at the IhobbyEXPO and it looks great. They also showed me a DEX408 electric chassis that just showed up too. The Durango rep didn't know too many details on the 210 about running stock so I may have to take everyone's advice and modify some other spur gears to accomodate a stock class.

Right now I'm torn between getting a DEX210 Buggy or a Losi 22T Stadium truck.

My concern with the 210 besides making in run in a stock class is parts availability. The distributor told me that they are just having issues getting the parts into the states and enough of them. Anyone found this to be the case?

Thanks for the help.

Only unique DEX210 parts available are shock towers and wing mounts at the moment. I'm sure parts support won't be a problem soon though, alot of different shops and online stores stock Durango parts for their other vehicles. HRP stated they're working with RW to make spurs in smaller sizes, hopefully they'll be available soon.

Good luck finding a kit now, most places I know of are sold out at the moment

A Main seems pretty well stocked, I'm also lucky enough to have 3 LHS's that stock parts too. No issues as of now that I can see! As for stock, until the next batch of spurs comes out, SLOWLY ream the center of an Associated spur. We did it on the Schumachers for a while and we had to make the hole much bigger. For the 210 it should only need a little taken out, reducing the odds greatly of throwing off the spur on the shaft. This buggy should be an animal in stock class once you can gear it.
