I got to put in a lot of time this weekend on my new buggy. I am really impressed with how the changes affect it.

I had a couple ball cups pop off but they were hard impacts at really bad angles. I am really surprised I didnt break anything. I cartwheeled it almost the whole length of our straight and didnt pop a cup or break anything.

I am in the process of filling out a setup sheet but heres were I am at now for a med traction, medium sized track. I Started with Billy Fishers setup and improved from there.

3 gear rear Tranny
Tekin 8.5 RS PRO system
geared 24/78(ASC9652 drilled out to fit.)

Front
light blue springs
30wt Associated oil with 4 hole 1.3
Shocks were inner hole on the tower, outer on arm
30* caster
4mm trailing
Longest camber link with 2mm of spacer under the inner ballstud
4mm under the outer steering link
droop limited slightly in the front
24mm ride hight

Rear

Dark blue springs
22.5wt ASC oil with 4 hole 1.2
shocks were inner hole in the on the tower and middle hole on the arm
Wheelbase is in the middle
1.5*Antisquat
3* Toe
#2 hole on the outer camberlink with 2mm under the inner
23mm ride hight

With my battery I am running saddle packs with one in the back and one spaced froward half way to the front. I tried a stick pack in the middle and it didnt have the same effect. I lost some rear traction.

Hey all, as far as running AE/Schumcher style pinned wheels I founf another option if you cant get your hands on the Durango spacers. If you use either a Losi XXX Series or Kyosho RB5 outer cone/plat plate with a shim step built in and a .5mm or thinnest Losi Axle Shim it works perfect. I checked the width afterwards using a set of Priline Wheels for the B4/B44/Cougar SV/Cat series vs the stock setup with the 14mm hex and it was perfectly identical. I do appreciate the durability the big hex gives, my whole thing is that I've got sooooo many mounted current tires on pinned wheels for my Cougar SV that I can now use on the testing of the 210 for my son rather than having to buy more wheels and tires and have specific sets for the 210 and then my normal tires for my other buggies. I will however mount up some Schuie mini pins for the 14mm hex as I'll also be doing some carpet offroad!

Anyone setup in a mid-motor 4 gear configuration yet? What are the advantages dis-advantages to the mid-motor? Everyone says it's just for indoor carpet tracks, however Hupo Hönigl (TD driver) won at oOple ‘invernational’ race which was a fast outdoor dirt track and was running mid-motor 4 gear setup. It just seems to me like you would get better stability with mid-motor.

Thoughts?
