It's worth checking with your distributor, if this part isn't available yet it will be soon.

For anyone who also runs the stadium truck dest210, I had an aluminum chassis made which uses the side pods from the DEX. Never ended up using it.
Brand new aluminum DEST210 chassis

A quick tidbit of info on that chassis. I've only had a couple of those made. If memory serves me right, that may very well be the only LW option on, the other 1 or 2 didn't have the extra milling. It reduces the weight by about 25g (it was 20g on the buggy ones, more millin on this one) If the buyer has any questions or sugestions I'm always here for tech support. (P.S. feel free to quote this into your ad)

It pains me to sell it, but Cactus Classic is the only time I could see myself running it. Very high quality! And love my DEX +8.

The dex210 will have a few tweaks, the dex410v4 will have less changed so it'll be out before the 210.
Thanks. Was just hoping.

My guess for the 210. Type B chassis and parts. CF towers. Aluminum steering rack. Quick change shock mounts?

Tower doesn't even have it yet and it's been months. Tower is pretty much Great Planes.

Is there a quick and easy way to switch the motor setup from rear to mid? I need some help on the conversion as i bought a 2nd hand one, pretty unsure of the build yet.

Buggy finally arrived (ordered 3 July and got here Friday). Dropped the electronics in it last night and will work on it again today. I installed a D3.5 and man, that isnt an easy combination in the 210. The B motor wire is tough to install under the slipper adjustment and the can of the D3.5 doesnt give many options to clock the can differently without exposing the tabs to rear collisions.

I just did the same thing with a 2nd hand 210. Download the manual and follow the MM build instructions after disassembling the rear of the car. It isn't too bad at all as long as you have all the parts. The car is probably set up in RM3 so you'll have to take apart the tranny to set it up MM4 which is the preferred MM setup.

Rotate the mounting endbell. My tabs are about 2:00 when looking at the tabside.

This is the real key here.

So I'm redoing my shocks based off a recommendation from a local. The setup suggests a 2 hole piston however I don't have any blanks and no 2 hole pistons. However I do have several 6 hole pistons laying around. I had the idea of closing off some of the holes with an old soldering gun then sanding any bumps smooth. Anyone ever done this with success?
