I'm unable to post pics but I installed the front and rear skid and they are perfect... Very light weight and supportive.

9 total days from Germany to IL! Plus saves $60 when you count shipping costs.

Now, I love this thing it took a little to get use to the added flex and light weight. I'm now sitting at 1505 grams in full race trim.
do yourself a favor and get bmans front and rear brace with the money you saved so the chassis doesnt snap front or back. i got the rear brace that hooks the rf holder, cuz i've seen the rf holder sheer the carbon into pieces. his braces have bulletproofed my chassis and i take some pretty wicked hits. cant reccomend enough for the carbon chassis. up front is really weak too, even version 2 of chassis.

has anyone else bent lunsford hinge pins , when i snapped a arm the other day the hinge pin was difficult to get out... the inner front arm hinge pin is slightly bent i have the revolution design alum front suspension block and it bent at the rear part of the arm did I maybe get a bad set of pins or is this normal? ,, i can see the bend by looking down it or rolling on a flat surface but its still straight enough not to bind at all

edit what foams blocks fit good in the battery tray? right now im using a cut up old dremel case foam

I had the lunsford titanium hingepin kit. and also bent several hingpins. I did not crash or broke a-arms. they just bend.
they are no better then the stock durango hingepins

Hey guys been tossing around a few ideas. What would you guys like to see for options parts on the 210. If I get enough interest, I might be able to make it happen........Thanks

steering knuckles, shock caps and collars that aren't gold or red maybe silver, TD320121 that brace thinned down in the rear where it looks like a sway bar should be and itll change the way the chassis flexes ,,just some ideas i don't see much else that would benefit from aluminum that's not out their and maybe a front bumper that's rounded a little more so it wont dig so much when landing on the front end maybe include the hinge pin brace in the bumper so it can be smaller also
