One 2mm Spacer. These are the Kyosho axle spacers. Here's a better shot:

About to pull the trigger on a DEX210 V2 and have a few questions:

Can I use standard Proline 2.2 buggy tyres on the Durango wheels?

Can I only use Durango wheels (I think the hex size is different?)

Is all the hardware metric in these chassis?

What spares would you recommend as must haves?

Cheers
Simon

Proline 2.2 buggy tires will fit Durango wheels.
The DEX210 wheels have a 14mm hex for the rear and bearing type front wheels. DE Racing are the other option for '210 specific wheels. You can find a list of wheels that will fit on my website http://durangofansite.com/main.php?v...t#wheels-front
The hardware is all metric except for the 1.3mm/0.05inch screws in the shocks.
The buggy is pretty durable, I would say carry the usual spares like arms and hubs. Might be worth getting an extra set of suspension mounts, but the type B mounts that come with the v2 are quite durable.

Here's an old photo of my car, if you check pages 789-791 a few of us posted photos of our layouts with shorties.

Someone asked me that exact question when I first posted that photo, I ordered them from here when I purchased batteries. They are very great for keeping the wires neat with the old side pods.

one question, I haven't dissassembled it yet, but one of the dex's I got in has like a "stop" at two points when moving the steering from lock to lock. No servo hooked up so its free in that sense. curious what to look for. Will do my dissasembly though and clean up of course. but figure to ask and get out in front of it. .

Are the two stops at each end when you turn the steering at full lock? If not the two screws that hold that bearings and arms in place maybe too tight.

sounds like a screw is just touching something when it moves, so a bit of deflection in the rack is what you feel then it goes smooth again. I don't remember whats close to the screws, but just check what is hitting.

Screw going up through the chassis in the center of the two that go up into the steering bell cranks?

Loosen that a turn and see if that frees it up.

looks like a combo of things.

First off the vehicle came with the exotek center link, its banging against the bulkhead? so may need to trip that slightly or something isn't built right (tore it apart so will fix).

Next, I think there is some tightness on one of the ball ends. very little movement I think causing it to stick. so will clean that up.

All in all for this vehicle can't really complain, $70 shipped with ESC and motor and its a team version with some upgrades.

@cain: Here's my shorty pack setup, which can actually work with the stock shorter chassis as it is pictured here or I'm also running it on my +11 chassis, it just leaves me with more room to move the battery around. My receiver weighs about 6 grams and I think the wires probably balance the car out pretty well. I plan to put it on the scales and see soon.

I ran it with the ESC behind the shorty pack for a day at OCRC and the whole car felt unbalanced however I think when I ran it this way I may have needed to rebalance my springs. Either way having everything inline is pretty awesome, combined with the shorty pack makes for a very very quick car. I'm able to triple and quad things most guys can't.
