When's the new DEX going to be released? And what are the differences?

Living in UT, I'm having to order these spurs but the available spurs TD/RDRP are somewhat on the high side. I bought another kit that came with the Avid top shaft. My question is would it be easier to just buy an Avid Triad so I can run spurs that are available?
If you have one kit on Avid, I'd switch it. Just easier. It's also easier for me to find someone running Avid than finding Durango spurs.

Could you fix the transmission casing to the chassis with just the nuts and screws and without the stupid plastic nut holder thing?

I'm sure you could(as long as you don't use a rear sway bar) but I think it's even harder to do it that way. CA the nuts into the holder.

Also, if you are in a pinch, you can ream out a Kimbrough or AE spur to 8mm I.D. and they work just fine. I really like the RDRP spur gears myself.

Who makes that kit?

I run the Aluminum RDRP towers. They are very sturdy and really very little weight difference. Best I recall the front is 7 grams heavier and the rear is 9 grams heavier.

Reports are flying all over the place. I heard March of next year, and that changes are principally front arms and rear shock tower. Oople and petitrc seem to also have some discussions.

The front end geometry change has me a bit torn between the old and new (as judged by the world's pics). The curved arms place the mounting points of the shocks and hence the shocks themselves lower down than straight arms which means a bit lower center of gravity. The straight arms however make it very easy to see when the camber links and the arms are parallel since an arm that is sitting "level" to the ground is measured as kingpin to kingpin rather than at the arm itself. A straight arm makes visual tuning setup easier.

Although I haven't changed them yet, I am going to run carbon fiber towers. Since I have a pin router I can make them myself. I may also do a full carbon chassis as well. We'll see.

Another race another DNF. Stripped a spur since the track is uber dusty. Looks like I might drop out of the points series because only way I can compete is others start having luck like mine haha.

Is there a non cab forward body that fits an extended chassis? I absolutely despise with all my being cab forward bodies and refuse to run one for any reason whatsoever. I like the stock 210 body but haven't seen anything else that works on a longer chassis. If nothing exists then I'll just trim a new one a bit differently to fit.

I looked when I first switched over and could not find a non- Cab For body.
