I'm not sure what insert it comes installed with, I believe it is the +5, which gives a 25+5 set up. However, the rtr is delivered with all the inserts so it gives you all the options the kit has with 25 +/-5 and 25 +/-10 degrees.

Hey guys quick update, a Rep from Durango returned my emails. He was willing to send me parts to get me back on the track! I had already ordered the Tresery upgrade however so I thanked him for the kind offer and told him to keep them for someone in need.

Great to see they do care about customers though and the offer was on the table if I had actually needed the parts.

Also there is a new distributor in Hong Kong for Durango and the local shops should be able to restock soon!

I run mainly the Durango ones, they have a good range, but I have used Losi to get the in-between wts. that Durango is missing, not much of a difference as far as performance noticed.

Default VTS clutch in 210 buggy

I added a VTS clutch to my 210 buggy. Utilizing a Tresrey Associated topshaft, I filed down the flat areas on the shaft to accept the Durango inner slipper plate as I have a TON of TD spur gears to use up. The VTS clutch basket snaps into the TD spurs. The only tricky part is opening up the center hole on the outer pressure plate. I used my drill press to ensure it's centered and Dremel to make a slot for the cross pin. I tested on the extra high grip clay it at SCVRC.

We all know the spur and pinion need to be protected from debris. I took a stock gear cover and removed the center section so the clutch is exposed. While not optimal for outdoor racing, I found it to be perfect for a clean indoor track.

Its amazing how hot a clutch can get in five minuets. Having the clutch basket exposed might be beneficial...

Hey guys, I had a 210 kit last year, but I sold it (mistake!). Now I'm thinking about getting another 210, but I'm on a really tight budget (university). Anyone running the 210 RTR? As far as I can tell it is exactly the same as the kit, but it has a gear diff with plastic outdrives and a plastic chassis. The ESC and motor look like they should be enough to race with and the price on the RTR is amazing. Anyone know if the plastic compounds are the same, or if there are any chassis issues with the RTR? I won't be using the stock servo or Tx/Rx.

Cliffnotes: Is the RTR platform any different than the kit? (besides the obvious parts)

The RTR one has a plastic chassis and I suspect the reason they are blowing them out is to make the chassis change to the B (newer stronger plastic one).

The kit has the alum chassis but it is not +8. The outdrives are not plastic, they are steel and have a plastic cap but I took them off after finding they would rub.

I would change the servo out but the SP stuff works fine for stock.

Default Steering

On the stock ackerman/steering plate what are the different adjustments going to do??? I am looking for a bit more steering and was wondering if I moved the ball in or out what exactly it would do for me.
