Looks good!
Check out the "custom lexan and thermoforming" thread in the painting forum. Everything is in there.

@Jpcopeland1: VERY TRUE! I remember the day after a rebuild at OCRC being REALLY slick.

Has anyone experienced bending of the rear part of the chassis where the droop screws rest on?

The rest of the chassis is fine but the two "tabs" that the droop screws rest on to control droop have warped a bit. Is this normal?

Come down south & try some of our red clay. It's sticky as crap for a few races after layout change. After that it packs HARD (think concrete) & gets very dusty & cracks when it dries. DD's & hole shots in SS are the tire of choice, but you typically get 1 race day out of them (new for the mains, then use those for qualifying at the next race). On hot dry days with big turn outs (80+) it will get a groove & we think the traction is incredible. We have had people from Florida tell us the traction is medium at best during these times though.

Traction & the expectation there of is all relative and extremely variable. We have 2 out door tracks in the state that have clay that looks the same, but feel completely different from my track & each other.

Just a little where the arm hits on the first few runs. None since then. I even put in some turns on the droop screws.

Hi guys,

Is there a anti roll bar set for the dex 210?

i recently got my v2 and realised there was no anti roll bar with the kit and couldn't find it on tower or amain.

Touring has always been fun to me, but its nice to just have one set of vehicles to run and "offroad" is just more fun

my problem is just getting out there, weather can make the trips dicey.

man I wish we had something local

Can't remember the amount of times I have gone there after a fresh track change and felt like it was a waste of time and money. No grip anywhere, once the dust settles though, grip galore, but tire wear is a problem. Especially in mod. Typos are a one day tire.
