Also just need some advice on the do's and dont's and basic set up as this is my first R/C car.
There is no drag brake on the stock esc. and the stock setting for brakes is really soft on the RTR, you need to turn it up.

But there's an option to set the drag brake according to the instruction manual and also on their website. I haven't tried it yet though. Any other tips? Went to the track today and my front left turnbuckle ball cap popped off twice and rear left once. How to stop that from happening again? And got myself new front tires as the stock ribbed ones didn't have enough traction.

This is correct, but i must tell that if you use the stock tires you will be blocking the tires pretty easy even with the stock configuration, at least thats what happened to me...

Get new tires for race...

Selling both a RM and MM Tresrey Spec Prototype 210's. Every Tresrey parts available as well as some prototype parts (+10 chasis, etc.). Both have just been re-freshened (diffs, shocks, etc.) and ready to go! Will be sold as rollers with spares. PM me if interested as I'll post them up in the for sale section tomorrow.

Hey guys, I'm building the DEX210 right now. I've got two quick questions. First thing I noticed was this screw sticking out the bottom of the chassis. I have a feeling it should be flush with the rest of the screws, and if so than my chassis plate was not drilled correctly. There's no divet for this particular screw for it to sink into. I see other pictures online and they all look flush. Think I've got a defected chassis...

CANT POST IMAGES OR URLS YET! PLEASE REMOVE THE SPACE BETWEEN HTTP AND THE COLON!

Also, I'm on the servo installation step. Noticed the wire coming from the servo is in there pretty tight. Is this normal? It's bending the rubber seal that is closest to the servo and as you can see is in there pretty tight. Not sure if anyone else experienced this or what.

Please help! Not really sure what to do about these two dilemmas...

Yeah, there is supposed to be a countersunk cutout for that screw. Looks like you've got a defective chassis . Your buggy will probably work fine without that screw though. Shouldn't be affected much.

And yes, it is normal for the servo lead to bend like that, it's just a tight squeeze.

Thanks for answering so quickly. I'm going to contact Team Durango to see if there's anything they can do about this. Not a good start to the very beginning of this buggy! It's all been going together so well until this

Here's your pics.




Is that the correct screw? What is that hole used for?





Normal

Thanks for that. The forum wouldn't let me post URL's or images because I don't have enough posts yet.

It's the correct screw. Step 3, page 12 of the manual. Both online and in the book. Screw 704004. It holds the steering assembly on to the chassis. It just appears that my chassis isn't drilled to allow it to be countersunk.

you could pickup a countersink from a hardware store and fix the hole, or use a round head screw. should have less of a chance to catch on something.

Just asking because it seems weird that just one hole didn't get countersunk.

So I slapped in the plastic diff gears and light weight outdrives on my gear diff, shaved off 6g of rotating mass. Both cars are now ready for Motorama except the tires need to be glued.

It is no secret that I detest cab forward bodies and refuse to run any car that only has those as available options. I found one that is quite tolerable though. This one is for the +8 Dimec chassis so it would probably work with the new V2 setup.
