I used the Exotek hexes and they were trash, that setscrew is so far off center it's not even funny.

Hideeho
Or you can do like I did & put on 12mm clamping hexes & run the same wheels as everyone else at the track (notice the other 1/10 car I drive ).

P.s. It's kinda weird not seeing you talk in 3rd person

I have/had (Sold my 210 a week or so ago, might be buying it back) B5 front axles and DESC/T steering blocks with B4 clamping hexes out back for the 12mm hexes front and rear.

And yeah, I gave up on it. Too many keystrokes :P

only if you use the DESC/DEST210 front steering blocks.

depending on your front end setup, more front droop can help but can lead to traction roll in high grip situations, like carpet. try playing with you ride height (lower rear or higher front), but dont forget to reset your camber after a ride height change. what inserts are you running in your tires? open cell can allow more ballooning which gives less traction after the corner as you accelerate away. i dont know what your skill level is or what your driving style is, but being less aggressive on the throttle is the absolute best way (assuming the rest of your setup works well for you). im not talking a big change, just a fraction slower (.5 seconds to go from off throttle to full instead of .1 second).

I would try less antisquat.
Are you running RM or MM ?

did you mean the 3deg RF mount or 3deg antisquat, if you're using the 3deg FR mount I would try going to the 0deg one.
