1) it came with the advanced chassis in a separate bag along with another bag with front bulkhead and rear inner hinge pin mounts. SO! my question is the front bulkhead does not mount flat on the optional chassis, is this normal? it has a complete different angle than the stock chassis with bulkhead.

2) why does it give the Dex210 style steering knuckles when the wheels have no holes to mount bearings so you can take full use of the cool guy steering blocks?

thanks for all the help and can't wait to race it next weekend.
1. A new bulkhead along with the RF and RR hangers should have been included. Use that.

2. Keep them for your buggy. Guessing it was just easier to not create a mold.

Default Exotech re hanger

Hi guys,

I have the rtr dest and after reading here an aluminum rr hanger is a good upgrade went and bought the exotech +0 degrees (keep it stock as not sure on setup yet) but just tried to install it and it needs the ball ends like the rf hanger as the plastic rr hanger doesn't use them.

If I buy the ball ends will it fit? I read further up this thread they exotech don't make a hanger to fit the dimec b chassis, so how do I tell if mines an a or b?

Cheers Dean.

It will fit with the ball ends. Exotek have recently released RR hangers for the type B chassis types http://www.exotekracing.com/dex-desc...hanger-type-b/ and http://www.exotekracing.com/dex-desc...nger-type-b-5/
The type B chassis type have higher side walls and have more material at the front and rear of the chassis, check the TD site for pics http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD320230

Hi ekt, thanks for the reply!

From looking through those links I think I have the type A chassis. I race on an outdoor astro track, would I benefit from the changing to the type B chassis?

Thanks again!

Help! Just built my dest210r with the b kit and the front axles don't stick through the rims in the kit to put the wheel nuts on. What did I do wrong?

From my experience the durability upgrade alone is worth the change. They also have reduced flex compared to the older style chassis, which creates more consistent handling.
For high grip astro I would recommend the DIMEC20 chassis http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD320248

Make sure the wheel properly seated on the hex.

The wheel is seated. Are there two sets of axles? Could I have gotten the buggy axles installed instead?

Not possible for the buggy axles. The buggy wheels screw on and don't take a hex.

You have the spacer before the hex pin right? The SC axles are shorter but it wouldn't fit with the spacer.

Could you take a couple pictures, would help identify the issue.

They protrude the same but just don't sick through the wheel. Plus, what tool are you guys using for the wheel nuts. Having problems getting something to work due to the small diameter of the bore in the wheel.

Looks like the problem was the diameter of the hole in the rim. Still curious on any driver suggestions though.

Those look just like mine. they however stick threw my wheels enough to start the nuts. However i have to use a Tamiya T wrench https://www.google.com/search?q=tami...ml%3B500%3B375 that comes with the cheaper on road car kits to tighten or remove the axle nuts. bad design on the wheels in my opinion. whatever nut driver you have it better be a thin wall in order to fit in the silly holes. also i tried racing with the stock chassis and anti squat blocks lastnight and didn't even make it 2 laps before the rear inner hinge pin pulled out of blocks due to so much flex. there again cheap design. but truck felt really great once i barrowed some aluminum parts and raced it in the main.

Just got the ST truck and love it. What gearing are most of you running with a 7.5t? I am currently at 22/81 and love the punch but it runs out quickly on longer straights. Most of you running the stock 87?
