Interesting thought about the stock one giving more mechanical grip.. maybe it flexes a little

I might try that out on out high grip astro track

I'm thinking of picking up a new assembled kit roller from a buddy. Any upgrades out of the box that I "need" to do or is the buggy pretty race ready like it is?

What's a good starting point on oils in the shocks with stock pistons?

Thanks

Stock shock tower have a lot of flex and it does help on the track with low to medium traction but I won't recommend it to be use on high bite track. One of the track I race on is sugared and with stock shock tower the front end tends to hook..

you need the alloy steering rack, and the RF pivot is nice, some seem to break them, some not, a couple locals broke them when the cars first came out hence why I sell them now, any one of my collegues broke on after a few pack, but its his first race car, so if you're pretty good, the stock block and towers should hold up, the steering rack probably won't no mater how good you are.

Is the steering rack a TD part? Or aftermarket company?

why dont you look at the TD website ? there yoy can find that the aluminium steering rack is a TD part. and the plastic version is also a TD part.

and for your info there are also aluminium and CF racks developed by aftermarket company.

I hope that was helpfull

But however I think the +8 DIMEC chassis generate a tad bit of traction. I manage to TQ again last night on our club race by a lap but then again DURANGO got me on the main. I was leading by half a lap with minutes to go after the small double darn front shock tower snap and end my race... "DURANGO is like Formula 1 cars they are fast and fragile lol.."
Thanks for your help. Always appreciated.

Would you mind sending me your set-up. I always like to try new things. The guys at the track swear by the longer chassis. I just don't know which one as I am new to the buggy scene.

Hi,

I wanted to mout the new vented slipper plates on my DEX210, but I can not get them fixed correctly. They are always loose.

A friend of mine experienced the same problems...

The funny thng is that with the stock slipper plates everything works perfectly.

Is there maybe another spring needed for the vented one?

Thanks,

As I just mension, I managed to win my first A main last night. My buggy is dialed on our turf track running a proto type +8mm Dan-O-Mite chassis, and nothing else too special. The past couple weeks I've been running an old 13.5 as my LRP x12 8.5 grenaded during warm up a few weeks ago, and it was fading near the end of the main. Its slow but consistant (my standard of deviation was 0.34 compared to TQ was at 0.38, but was 0.3 secs a lap quicker). I had a solid run starting 4th, the guy who set TQ (and wins alot) had a rough lap or 2 and went nuts, so I beat him by 10 seconds. I just need to find an extra 0.3 or more per lap to really keep up with him. a 10.5 may get ordered soon along with a shorty to give a try. If anyone runs on thick pile turf feel free to pm me for my set up. For those with Andriod phones, check out the 'RC Result Analyser' app, its pretty cool and great for comparing results, available in the google play store.

I had that issue too, putting a nitro clutch shim before you put the plates on fixed it for me.
