Very nice product. Like you stated simple and effective.

Similarly, I run losi studs in the front with Kyosho cups. No slop or pop with this combo.

Hey guys just wondering what methods do you guys use to remove old tires from the rims.Other that just ripping them off with your hand wich can be a pain.
Thanks John.

Heat works great. Bake them in an oven, around 300F for 30 mins.

Cut the tires then soak it in acetone it will disolve the ca glue and make your wheel nice and shiny. Just remember to clean the wheels when your done

I also broke my left rear hub first race and it was just landing off a small double I now run Exotek Alloy hubs and they have been great.

Grab yourself some acetone and a small container with lid and put the wheels fully submerged in the acetone overnight. Tyres will come off the rims easy and you can re-use the tyres if you want.

Edit: as per above

I am looking at buggys. Just dumped my rb6 and back to the trusty old b4. I know the dingo car is doing great at my track, but I know the guys have dumped alot of money into them. I am really tempted to pick this car up it is so cheap now, also thinking about a 22 2.0 as well.
About how much money am I going to need to spend to get this car to be a top level racer? I know it needs a 75$ Lunsford treatment right off the bat.. Looks like part support is pretty much a non issue now.

The only thing the car absolutely needs out of the box is a carbon or aluminum steering rack.....the ball cups are hit or miss, I had trouble with mine and replaced them with losi ball studs and losi/kyosho ball cups, but I just built a DEST210 with stock ball cups and I haven't had any issues at all.....
Most everything else depends on what type of track you're running on and how good of a driver you are
I would recommend the Sumo brace for the rear ball studs and putting longer ball studs in the rear hubs to where you can put nuts on them, that'll keep you from breaking in all but the gnarliest of crashes

Never had any problems. Just don't go over 300F and make sure the wheels aren't right next to a heating element. And make sure the tires are completely cooled before trying to remove them from the wheel.
Some people boil the tires + wheels. I've never tried that. The oven is less messy.

Pretty sure I'm going to pick up one of the RTRs to race indoor this fall/winter. Was all set on the 22 2.0 since I had a 22 and liked it but it's just such a good deal to pass up! Have a extra receiver for my 4PL and a Savox 1251MG so te electronic weak points are already taken care of.

Only other things in going to order will be a few pairs of tires.

Why is it so cheap everywhere. Are we due for a new version I assume? Same deal with the 410 too. Prices are dirt cheap
