Hi Joho, good spotting, yes it is Lali in HK, if you have a nice setup I would like to take a look thanks! what front tyres did you run, i'm using JC Rips but would like a little more steering... could be setup though, not had the chance to really get in to this buggy and start tuning with the damn toe block problem.

Thanks for the heads up GergerL, do you have a link to the new spec B parts? I have not seen those.

Appreciate the help guys, I was getting really bummed out with my Dex210, I have been to the track twice and come home in pieces both times, I like the buggy and I'm sure it will be good once these problems are fixed

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
Rear

Is the plastic better than the original? its a cheap option but I dont mind the extra couple of bucks for the alu one if it means I can spend a day at the track without my rear end falling apart

Have many people tried the B spec part with success?

Thanks again!

I have been running the B type parts for several months now without any modifications and without any issues.

I run on a hardpack clay track with a wet and loose top surface. Is the Tresery 2/3 Block a good choice?
Attachment 1084833

Here is a photo of the track conditions.
Attachment 1084831
On that track I would use the brass 0/3 block and if you want more anti squat I would buy the RDRP RR low roll center ones.
I have this setup and it works great on low grip tracks. Can be bought from Amain Hobbies

Do the Type B parts fit the standard Kit alu chassis ok? (TD320125) or are they ment for the DIMEC chassis?

The RDRP ones look intersting but kind of pricey.. I guess i'm still a little miffed that I need to buy these parts just to "fix" the kit lol.

*EDIT - I see you can buy RDRP1903 on its own (I only found the set for $65 before )

Looks like a good option!

The type b parts are intended for the type b DIMEC/DIMEC20 chassis.

Im using the RDRP0046 brass RF suspension mount 0/3. For high grip tracks I use the brass 3/3 mount

Thanks everyone for the help, I went ahead and ordered the Tresery toe block and a carbon steering upgrade from TSR products in the US. Lets hope it all works out well.

That kinda sucks to change it like they did. I don't mind using the balls for the standard parts. I used this setup on several other brand offroad cars and touring cars with no problems. So now to use the new B parts I have to invest in a new plastic chassis. I will stick with the aluminum one and use the balls instead.

Yeah, this is why I decided to get the Tresery part, I really just want something thats going to bolt in to the kit I have and I know Tresery parts are ok (used them before). Only bummer is I probably wont get them until the end of July (USA to Hong Kong postage time is not great) but hey thats the way the cookie crumbles.

That is true, but are you sure they won't work with the original chassis? I haven't tried it yet but I have the parts at home and was eyeballing it the other day and it looks to be possible. The main dimensions have not been changed, and you should be able to make it work with a spacer or two if you still want to use the original motor guard.

Looking at it I think with a small amount of DIY you could make a cheapo LRC option from the spec B RR hanger.

Anyway, I will have a stab at it next week and report back with my result.

From what I understand, it looks like the B parts are backwards compatible but I'm not positive.

The spec B suspension holders should work with the aluminium chassis, it's just be the RR holder that you will have to use the old/aluminium version.
