How many different cab forward bodies does Durango (just them) offer for the 210? Are there three different versions or just one? I see the RTR, the one they released for the Dimec (which may be the same as the rtr) and the V2. Are these actually just the same body?

Rtr and Dimec are the same. Then they have one that looks the same but is 8mm Shorter.
The V2 is also different.

yup, the rtr style one, the same but for the regular length chassis, and the new v2 body to match the 410v4. I've got some spacers that should work with the new +8mm alloy chassis and original side pods to use any body if you want to run the stock v1 normal cab body

I may take you up on those. Since I'm currently running the Dimec chassis I need a different body. Since I play around with things, I probably won't stay with this chassis forever though. Since I'm going to be pretty much forced to run a cab forward for now, I'm trying to decide which one I want. I'm not sure if I want to stay fairly mild or if I want to go full retard!

Hello to all. I'm very indecisive. Can I buy a 3racing cactus and a durango dex210 at the same price (120 euro). In your opinion what is the best between the two models?
thanks

In a DEX210 thread, you are going to get the answer DEX210.

When it comes to RC, I ALWAYS go full retard!!! I like the v2 body. I trimmed the JConcepts finisher body to fit my +8 chassis.

Are you sure the holes will match up? Those spacers add the 8mm up front behind the servo area. The new side guards and chassis add the 8mm slightly behind where the battery post are. In fact you can visually see it on the mold for the side guards. I noticed this when I tried to place the new side guards on my tresrey chassis. I would need to drill new holes towards the front in order for it to work.

I haven't tried it hence the 'should' part, might need to re drill the v1 side pods. I know the spacers are 8mm as seen in this pic with a very limited chassis I had made. I've got a few pais of the spacers I can sell dirt cheap, but I've got no clue how the old side pods will bolt up. Anyone have the new chassis and old side pods to compare?

As soon as the v2 becomes available, i will be making v1 style rear cab bodies for the v2. Im not a fan of the boxy fwd cab trend either.

Yes it happened to me too, you can put a drop of glue on the screw to hold it in or most likely the thread is damaged so i used a screw with a coarse thread to cut a new thread into the plastic side pod
