Dont know how you would do the front, it uses a 5mm id bearing and 3mm screws, but the rear has 4mm threaded axles. It would use the "Type C" http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-C-Adapter-Set

Yes, the rears will take Type C. To your point, I haven't been able to find out what to do about the front axles... anyone?

After having another look, you could get http://www.tsrproducts.com/index.php...e-tytd074.html or http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD330400 and use the "Type E" fronts.

I've rarely seen any set up with a rear toe less than 2*, most of the time 3* will yield the best results. If you have the .5* inserts I would play with those to get either 3.5 or 2.5 degrees of toe in
but is the 1.5 per side or together? as in a 0* on the toe block with 1.5 on each hub gives only a 1.5 total toe in or would the total be 1.5? ,, im having trouble understanding as i think i may have a problem elsewhere in my buggy ive replaced the rear arms and took out more play but im thinking one of my right side has more toe in than the other even tho both have 1.5 toe out in the hubs ,,im waiting for all new plastic inserts so ill have the 0 and a spares

If it looks like you have more toe in with the same insert, you may have it in the wrong way around. Here is TDs guide on inserts http://www.team-durango.com/in-the-p...rticle_id=4518

Does anybody have problems with the 210 pushing really bad? Mine pushes through the corners bad... Using the Ryan lutz west coast raceway setup because that's where I drive at I can't seem to stop it from pushing so hard. First 2wd buggy, running on clay, have 35 oil up front with dark green durango springs with 25 in the rear with same springs. Car is brand new super basic setup. Possible any tips? Ride height is 23 up front and 22 in the rear

for starters, what type of battery do you have and where is its placement on the chassis? do you have a 30g mass under servo like ryan lutz does in his wcrc setups as well? if not (in conjunction with your battery placement), you might be lacking front-end weight which could cause your pushing.

Here is my clay setup very dialed, but as mentioned battery placement and the front weight are key ingredients.

Just about done with wiring and center mounting my esc on the buggy. Need to touch up the black cap wires.



I really like the way it turned out on the DESC210. I will be running both this weekend.

What size tubing is that? 1/8?
My brother has a bunch of this since he does electrical work on airplanes, have it on my charger but didn't think of on my wires in the car to clean them up a little.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's 1/8. I threw away the packaging. The inside looks 1/8 and outside 1/4.

I have access to both will just grab a few feet of each when I am at my brothers next. I had thought of running the wires to the motor all in one just never got around to it but seeing your pictures makes me want to get back to doing it.

Still no front hub carriers anywhere. 3 places that said they were in stock were actually out.

Anyone? I just got a big box of parts from a friend and it had the right side, but of course I need the left.

Just ordered a set off ebay the other day for my part box.... they had more at least when I ordered. The c-hubs are the only thing that I've ever had an issue w/ on this buggy, the bearing carrier part has never broke. Not the c-hubs fault though; in my case I came down off a triple wrong once, and the other time I hit a guy who screwed up at the mid point on the straight at a pretty good speed and for some reason it didn't like it


\PS those installs look great awesome work... but there is no way I'm adding weight that high in my buggy, for me standard positions are great I've seen a few w/ the trucks put the esc behind the battery low in the tray, but that is about the only way I'd even consider. Just me though
