I ordered the RTR today along with the aluminum servo horn, aluminum steering plate, spare shock towers, and a Reedy Sonic 13.5. A guy at the track recommended Megabites (red) out back so I grabbed a pair along with some JConcepts ribbed fronts (blue). Was looking at setups on PetitRC but couldnt find much for a very small (30x60) dry outdoor track. Any recommendations for initial setup?

JC rips in blue look good for that track. May want to get green as well if track temps are cool and or damp/wet. Barcodes look like they would be dialed there as well.

Ran a few packs yest with the B stuff. No durability issues.
What's everyone using for pistons? Anybody using 2-3 hole?

I have new alum chassis and body as well as some other parts I just put in F/S section if anyone is interested.

Temps are 85-90 right now so I didnt think super soft would be a very good match. Not sure how much water it will get. A good sweep and it should be great.

Bought a DEX210 that should be here Wednesday

2 quick questions, if you guys dont mind...
  1. What size is the front & rear hex? I want to buy some ON ROAD tires/wheels and dont know what size to look for.
  2. Does the +8mm chassis make a big enough difference that I should buy one?

Here are the wheels that will fit the DEX210.
Front wheels http://www.amainhobbies.com/advanced...&x=-172&y=-165
Rear wheels http://www.amainhobbies.com/advanced...&x=-172&y=-165
As for tires, don't know of any tires specifically designed for onroad buggy use, I just use worn out sets. Any of the 2.2" tires found below will fit.
Front http://www.amainhobbies.com/index.ph...ires-2wd-Front
Rear http://www.amainhobbies.com/index.ph...ggy-Tires-Rear

These are 2.2s, might be able to fit them up front.

Hi guys, I have broken this part 2 times in under 3 batteries so I guess its time to upgrade.
Durango DEX210 Thread-toe-block.jpg

I run on a hardpack clay track with a wet and loose top surface. Is the Tresery 2/3 Block a good choice?

This look like lali warehouse in HK, if that's the case, the Tresrey parts works great since you will want less antisquat for that track. I have a setting for that track if you are interest in it.

The tresrey part is great, takes a ton of beating and holds up really well. However I would check out the new spec b hinge pin hangers. They are designed without the pivot balls, and you could also probably sand down a set to get a low roll center option which seems to be interesting for people running on loose surfaces.
