If your not racing, don't worry about the extras. The rtr comes with decent electronics, its a great deal. Replace the servo, same with any other rtr.
Thanks for the answer! How much of a role plays the battery that i get with the car? This RTR do not come with battery, what should i get to get decent speed and acceleration??

Others can help with stick or shorty pack, just getting mine out to the track for the 1st time today so I'm just figuring out my tune for it.
Shorty I would think is the way to go, gives you more weight placement options. I'm running stick for now because that's what I have already.

SMC is the best deal on packs IMO. Factory spec is good, race spec is worth the extra couple bucks.

The dex210v2 should be mid-late February, I suspect it will be announced the next month or so.

The battery does play a big role in performance, but if you're not running a spec lass or in your case not racing at all, its not super critical. Great Hobbies has a couple good packs for a good price like the 5000mah 35c stick pack or 4000mah 35c shorty pack. For bashing I'd go with the full pack for more run time, but for racing shorty packs are where its at. I use the gens ace 4200mah 60c pack as it is better then the TGH pack but still priced extremely well.

I just run Gens Ace batteries. They are fairly cheap and work well. I've moved to all shorty packs.

Thanks! I should get a good battery and ready to run!

Other question, sorry being annoying... Is this car "durable"? I'm not planing on hitting all the walls or anything, but i dont have any hobby store in my country, so replacement parts availability is zero and any piece over internet should take like 20 days more or less...

Thanks.

The rear shock tower seems to be a commonly broken part. Pick up an aftermarket carbon fiber piece and you should be good. Lots of people run the Sumo racing rear ball stud brace as well. The new gear case that is about to come out should fix any issues though and it has an additional camber link location.

Mid motor conversion? Just flip everything around. If you don't have a DEX210 manual, you should be able to find one on Durango's website to show you how to do it.

One question, why should I change the servo? Sorry but I'm really new to electric cars and I actually don't know the why.

Thanks.

The rtr servo is very slow, you tru the wheel on your radio, then the car slowly turns the wheels, makes it hard to put it where you want. For racing, you enter a turn and turn the wheel, by the time the wheels turn full lock you're already in the pipe. Probably not as important in bashing though. Not sure on the durability, I think the stock servo in the buggy is strong enough.

Saddle packs don't fit in this car unless you run them end to end down the center like a stick pack. You'd need a custom chassis to run them any other way.

Thanks, I think for the moment won't make such difference, in the case, that I find places to run, I might do it.

Thanks!!
