AE, we took a body reamer, and slowly enlarged the hole size until it fit. I thought RW made one though, maybe they only make a 69 and 75..

Ok, I've got a 75 and a couple 69's on order, 33/75 or 30/69 should be close, anyone know the min/max opinion size with different spurs?

Third place tonight in a points race. First lapped me and second place, dude is in another league driving skill wise but he is helping me get my setup and driving techniques dialed in. Was close for second but someone got mad and store off the drivers stand. Walked down the straight away and I ran into their foot because I didn't expect someone to be walking down the straightaway. Oh well still had fun and my buggy handled better than ever!

I tried asking this a while back. I don't know of a chart.

Here's the only one's I have based on personal experience:
69: smallest 31
75: smallest 26

I upgraded to Avid and use the 72 spur from them.

I haven't seen them, but would assume they aren't the best choice for racing. Tires are really track specific, and RTR's generally not..Not bashing, just stating an obvious fact. Find out what the local fast guys run, and mount up a set, otherwise you will never be able to narrow down a well set-up car...

yup, the rtr tires are pretty hard, change those out before fighting set up.

The diff has a different feel than other brands, 14-3mm balls is my explanation for it. It seems to like more diff screw tension than any other I have used. Unlike few others, if built right can outlast the out drives...

New to the hobby, and even newer to my DEX210RTR that I just got.

A friendly guy at the track did some small adjustments for me here and there to help me get the car setup. I was able to get 1st in the novice class the first race with it, so I am pretty happy with that.

As I skim through the 850+ pages I am almost overwhelmed. Has anyone been keeping any kind of knowledge base on what should be done to these buggies?

I have seen that I should swap out my shock for 4 holes, but that I really all I have grasped so far... its like information overload.

What info should I know to have this buggy running at peak performance? Its currently setup as a rear motor, should I change to mid? Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the club. I don't think there's anything you HAVE to do but here's my list of recommended upgrades. Did you get the type B stuff with the RTR? Would have had a sticker saying something like high performance parts included.

Aluminum or CF steering rack
Aluminum RF hanger
CF/aluminum shock towers
Add spider gears to the gear diff. The RTR comes with only one cross. TD310003/TD310002/TD709002
Replace the O-Rings with TD330099

Nice to have:
Camber rack for the rear gearbox. Either tresrey or sumo
Replace the servo
Replace the radio

Thank you for the info, I am filling up a virtual shopping cart now. I did get the B type parts. What are they, why were they included?
