I've taken a couple pics below, I'm guessing you'll need a different size pin too, not sure what length for pin wheels

I was considering a new chassis soon, too, but the blowout prices on their rtr kits, MAP on all their chassis, and the rumors about new stuff have made me decide to wait a bit and see what happens before I buy anything.
I was unaware that there might be a new chassis coming out. The only problem is my friend just installed his Dimec +8 and it made a HUGE difference at our track, so much in fact that I don't even feel like driving mine anymore without it. Even if someone has a used Dimec +8 I would buy it as my buggy makes me sad right now. Lol thank you!!

I have one. But it comes with a car and a +8 and +10 black hardcoated aluminum chassis.... Plus it also has my Stainless steel skids on it as well!

Anyone interested in a great deal please PM me. Thanks.....

I have had my dex210 for a while and have been running RM3. Then I got the desc210 and decided to run MM4. I finally got a chance last night to spend significant track time w/ the desc210. I now really like MM4, so much so that I'm going to change my dex210 to MM4. Does anyone have any suggested setup advice when going this route? I'm thinking of running more anti-squat to increase rear traction. But I absolutely love how MM turns and recovers when it gets out of shape.

I know that TD has be experimenting with a few different things lately with plastics including the DIMEC Series of chassis

...maybe that's why they are out of stock? Hope so, because I really want one!

Save the money and get the tresrey +10 chassis... I had the DIMEC +8 chassis and snap it on the second lap on our big track.. I went and got the Tresrey +10 at first I'm a little dissapointed due the buggy didn't handle like with DIMEC chassis but a little setup change, I run close to the same lap time as the DIMEC chassis although I think DIMEC chassis still generate a little more traction...

I had an upgrade rc skin made for my b44.1 I also inquired about a DEX210 skin possiblity and was told they might be making a die line, but it depends on interest. Might be worth an email to let them know you are interetsed.

but with me being in Canada, upgrade's cheapest shipping option is like $20. If they had the die lines done I could probably do a big order with some locals, but not a big deal, I may just drop the $50 and get another paint job to match my finisher

Now that I'm converting to MM I'd like to run my rear shocks behind the arms. But when I attempted this w/ my desc210 there was all sorts of interference when flipping the arms over. Are there any instructions on how to do this w/ the dex210?

Just put the arms on the wrong side and the shocks on the back of the tower, and trim the wing as needed. So far I like it after running like that for over a month, got a first and second the last 2 weeks
