Actually the stock v1 front shocks will work with the v2 front arms, but you need to remove the rubber spacer at the bottom of the shock end.
Whoops I forgot I had v2 front and rear arms already that's where all the upgrades started, I am also running the new style purple O-rings in my shocks also.

Excellent confirms my thoughts on LRC & anti-squat.

Thanks again EKT and Dino

Team Durango offer some titanium turnbuckles TD330045 and TD330046.
Lunsford Turnbuckles are another option 1066 and 1064 were the closest I've found for using the stock ball cups.

any recent opinions on the exotek gear cover? using the avid clutch and I like it though its a bit of a pain to get it tightened down initially with some of there spur gears, but the gear cover ends are garbage. read a big on the exotek one and it seems like it could work for what I want and its alloy so I am thinking a bit extra weight for the rear.

Lastly, seen a few different discussions on conversions for the rear of the dex 210.

Based on what is the most current info, what do you guys feel is the easiest conversion to do right now (please specify parts to use, part # even better) and what wheel types do you recommend for this conversion (B4 style, etc).

May got a line on some hex rims that actually have the tires I need in 12mm config.

I have the Exotek gear cover. It's so thin that it doesn't weigh any more than the stock gear cover. It's better quality and has more room inside though.

Don't add weight just to add weight. That is the single worst tuning technique used today.

Does anyone know which titanium ball studs fit with the Dimec X ball cups? I have the lunsford set and I think they only work with the lunsford cups.

And you can get them MUCH cheaper with free shipping on Tower than you can Amain. Tower is generally ALWAYS substantially cheaper than Amain with what they carry after the discount codes.

hmmmm, my experience has been the opposite. I usually compare prices between tower and amain and I also use discount codes on Amain. I end up with lower prices on Amain. Perhaps it's because I'm a long time member and sometimes get better prices. I've heard at a certain level they show you different prices. I don't mind Tower, other than their site isn't as nice IMO.

Thanks!

I use the Exotek on the RM car and I love it. Its way stronger and takes a beating cause its alloy. But the Exotek will not fit the Avid clutch.
Not sure why the stock durango one is so weak. I think RPM or somebody with a 3D printer should make a new one.

If you use MM the Avid clutch gear cover is more protected and should last you a long time. On RM the avid gear cover doesn't last long either, but then again nor does the stock one,

My buggy was jumping nose high on the big table-top and sky-jump double last night. Any ideas to control this flight?

How high is the wicker on the rear wing? What I mean is the rear wing has 3 or 4 lines you can trim to adjust downforce. Leaving it high or having a thick wicker gives you more traction but will make the car nose high on jumps. Reducing the wicker or thickness of the rear wing decreases some grip but also won't make the car nose up. You can also try using brakes to make the car not nose up while it is in flight or let off the throttle before you jump.

Speaking of the Avid clutch, who's running it? I have one and haven't tested it yet. The stock slipper seems to work really well and I adjust it with the associated HD pads that are a thicker when I run mod. Can we comment on the differences? Less fade since their are three pads? Easier to find the sweet spot?
