There has to be a new buggy coming but I believe it will be a version 2 with just a few upgraded parts. Even if its a whole new buggy they will continue to produce 210 parts for a long while.

It is in fact a dex210v2 that is expected to be available late February, too late for Motorama The new dex410v4 is expected late December, I'll have to look into the SC and st.

Did a shock trick that worked well. I drilled out some shock pistons with a #30 drill bit and put them on the bottom of the shocks to limit travel. It helped to stabilize the buggy, and stopped excess air from getting in the shocks. I do not like it when shock pistons come up to high and leave the shock body. This is a negative situation that will just cause problems. I like the piston to stop just before the top of the travel in the shock body, not in the cap like mine were.

Looks awesome! I've also been thinking about doing this to my DEX210 especially when I look at the worlds pics and I've seen a few RB6 setup this way as well. Are you also able to fit a full size pack? Can you post a pic of that if you can?

Also I wonder why you've turned your shocks around…I've done it but hated how much damage I would take when I'd get rear ended…especially by a short course in practice. Those things destroy little 2 wheelers!

Thanks!

Puts more weight behind the rear axle without adding any extra weight. Should give you more rear traction. I did it too hit also made a slew of other changes last night out so I can't say for sure how effective it was...

I might try it again when I'm not trying to avoid giant trucks...

The wing will save the shocks most of the time. I'm not worried about the rear mounted shocks.

That's what droop screws are for man.

Did you use the blanks for this? I can't imagine that'd be good but the piston would be free floating otherwise. Sounds like it's really being used as a shock limiter. Use the droop screws like Homershoots says. Do you have the black rubber stoppers in also?

If you reversed the arms, I think using using plastic 1 mm washers may be a better solution.

When you flip the shocks to the rear, no droop screw. Now my shocks do not suck up excess air into the oil. I had extra pistons for the small bores that I would never use anyway. I am also using the black stoppers.

I believe you two are talking about two different things. Droop screws are for limiting down-travel. If you don't want your piston entering the cap it is up-travel that should be limited.

I am guessing these blanks are fitted just above the spring perch below the rubber stopper. Right?
