I guess it works but that looks like it raises the camber link 4 or 5mm on the shock tower.
I put on the Lunsford set and have not had 1 pop off.
Now my DESC210 has the stock ball cups on them, and I built them the same way as I did on the buggy and I have yet to pop one of them off.

The only other things I would kind of be concered about are the C hubs, and the shock tower. They are now your weak points, instead of the ball cup popping it may break the hub or shock tower.

Thats just my .02

Sorry, you need a different ESC. My wife has a RTR and I had to replace it just because of that.

Last question for a while I hope. What is the Stock Gearing for the RTR and what is a good start gearing for someone who is terrible at racing and just wants to get used to being able to get around the track fast but not lightening fast. 13.5 motor!

I suggest 87/27 just turn down your radio till you get use to it.

Thanks for the info on the 0 degree inserts. About to order them.

How do you like the steering plate someone mentioned not liking them compared to the tresrey cf rack a few pages ago but never said why.

RDRP is quickly becoming a favorite of mines.

Durango. I just got a DEX210 with JConcepts hex's on them. So that works also.
