Yes, just buy the hub, ball bearings and axle for the DEST210 and a 12mm hex from Jconsepts or Pro-line

Thank you! Still cheaper than replacing 30 sets of wheels and tires!

Yes it locks the wheel axle in the nr 3 position (trailing), but it looks like that is the same position as most other 2wd buggys have from factory (B4.2-TRF201-RB5-RB6)

Ridge will the offset still be correct? I though the only method to go about adding hex to the front was using a rb5 axel and cutting it to size. This guide is what i'm referring to.

The DEST210 axel is shorter so you dont have to cut it. Just use spacers on either side to adjust offset

How do you like your home made bar codes up front? I run them on my 4wd but haven't tried them on my 2wd.

Those are actually just Proline Suburbs. I really like them a lot. I go back and forth between those and Ions. Scrubs don't have nearly enough steering unless I free up the rear and get a lot of rotation.

Anyone running there esc down the middle with a shorty pack? also those with a shorty pack how are you mounting it in the car.

Looking at a members dex210 on here which has the dimec +8mm chassis, but I run shorties. and usually esc in the battery tray of my RB5 worlds. just curious if this is a possibility, and/or anyone does it, or has tried it, and what results they found in doing it..

thanks in advance,
Brandon
