There are a few things to do to get more turn in, moving the battery would be the easiest and quickest, also a weight in the bottom of the chassis in place of the plastic plug would be my next move. Tresrey makes a rear ball stud mount if you are having problems with the trans mount, i have use it in the past, and its bullet proof. The stock diff parts are really good, and easily outlast any other brands parts, but Bfast does make very good stuff if you feel the need for something different.

P6, for the battery strap I dremeled slots right between the battery mount posts as shown in these shots. If you're running the battery forward, I would highly recommend gluing a foam strip down on the chassis right in front of the rear retainer. This keeps the battery from rattling around since it's only being held down in one place and not towards the back of the pack. I used the foam that hobbyparts batteries are packaged with and it seems to work well. I'm running a losi 22 battery strap.

When I ran the losi 22 everyone was trying to get rid of these straps, now people want them on the 210.

Update on the second run: Posted a pic of the first +10 off the mill....

wing mounts: Black, Alloy, +8mm. Its like they made them to match your chassis Especially with the timing of release.

They look good too, is it me or is there more wire clearance too for the motor with the lower bracket?

and the chassis is just stunning. cant wait to get it and have it all mounted up.

I'm going to be rebuilding the ball diff in my recently purchased dex210 soon, and I'd like to make it the best I possibly can.
more specifically: bfast carbide diff balls with his sanded down diff rings and also ceramic thrust balls with the treated thrustwashers to replace the caged race setup that durango provides. I think he has a whole package deal for all those pieces and then associated stealth difflube (part # 6591) on the carbide diff balls and associated black grease on the thrust. and you will be super lovely.

i like TD dark green up front and TD Black in the rear. some guys at my track do light red all around, and i tried that on friday, but i think i like a tiny bit stiffer spring up front and the dark green is not overly stiff by any means. im also gonna try out losi silver up front and pink in the rear this friday during practice. seems commensurate to an all TD dark green on all corners (though amain is outta dark green rear)

Wasn't aware of that! I actually much prefer that strap over running plastic thumb screws. Just can't justify paying $10 for aluminum ones...
