Go to exotek.com. I'm not sure if it's available anywhere else. Definitely none of the big boys.

RDRP is available from A-Main.

Tresrey and 8 racing are available from tresrey-USA.com

I think EvanAZ was looking into making some for a very good price also

Nice! Thought it might be store credit but glad they took care of you. Hope you sent them another strongly worded positive letter

Well I hope they credit our hobby shop or otherwise we are sitting on a very expensive paper weight to try to sell. Hope GP takes care of their dealers like they do with customers of Tower Hobbies.

Something is on the works for sure, check Neumann's Euro-winning DEX210:







Lots of changes. And those front arms look production ready(TD logos on them...)

I surely hope so. I think tower undercut you guys big time though.

Thanks for that. Lots of changes indeed. Anyone else think the trans looks a little lower?

Longer aluminum chassis, flat front arms (i hear same geometry as previous), back end looks much much different...

Could Jorn beat me with an Arrma if I was driving the 210v2? Yup, all day long so I'm not too worried about upgrading LOL.

Hmm that price on tower is very tempting.....Debating if I should buy one now or wait it out for the v2...

If those pictures are indeed a real DEX210v2 prototype, what's everyones guess on how many of the parts will be interchangeable with the DEX210?

Hard to tell what will make the DEX210v2.
From the pictures I have seen,
  • they have been testing a different rear end for RM(towers, wing mounts, transmission case)
  • MM still has the same setup
  • different front arms
  • different rear hubs/driveshafts
  • longer chassis
  • different steering plate

I just picked one up at tower. Had my eye on this buggy for a long time and at this price, I just couldn't pass it up.

I guess the question you have to ask yourself is, are you willing to pay at least 2 and 1/2 times as much to ger the new one and can you wait?

As for parts the front looks mostly the same to me. Arms are different but old arms may still work.

Can't tell on the back. Shock tower mounting to trans is different so existing CF tower may not work. Arms and rear hubs look similar but size could be slightly different. Would like to see the bottom of the rear to see if existing chassis will work.

What peves me is that Jörn (love him) has been running with a +8/+11 alu chassis for nearly 2 years and NOTHING has come out like that from TD.

He runns other turnbuckles and yoko ball studs/cups even though TD are testing new cups.

Also in those pics its the rb6 back end and lower tower which team drivers are now testing. If they are testing the other gearbox Im not sure but the lower tower is being tested.

wow, I just don't think I can resist the price of the 410! $150 for the 410R is perfect for a car I may only race a few times a year.
