I'm running full size. I really didn't want to buy shorties for indoor but I may try one one and see if that helps.

DEST210R built, electronics installed, tires glued. Dying to try it but there isn't a 7mm wrench or socket in the house that will fit in the deep narrow stock wheel. My smallest 7mm socket still flares out to fit the wrench so it doesn't fit in deep enough. WHat brand wrench do you all use to fit the hole?

if you use one of those cheap rtr 4 way that come with a lot of kits, it will work. not the best solution but it works.

when you get more wheels get the de wheels so you can use any socket.

Im running mine MM4 inside, tight, high grip track. Raced mod truck Sat night, qualified 2nd in all 3 qualifiers, battled for 1st in the main a few times, ended up 2nd.

I went back to a full size pack in mine, with the 10.5t in it, I needed the extra weight to help tame it down a bit. Running it all the way to the rear, have pretty good steering, still a little nose heavy, but it is working pretty good all in all.

Just mounted a Team Associated rc10 GT2 gas truck body to my Durango stadium truck. here's some pictures to get a general idea of the body post mods required to the body. fits nice everywhere else and doesn't run or hit anything.

Good deal, I had a GT2 that I sold a little while back, that's how I knew it would fit the DEST210 fairly easy. I figured I would do the same if the time came where I couldn't get a TD body anymore.

Ready to give my DEST210R its first run tomorrow night. Can't wait to give MM ST a try. If I like it I'm coming straight home and ordering a DESC210R also.

I like the ST better than the SC. the sc never really felt planted to me. but I hope your results are better.

Looks like the front of the body was heated and changed to me.

Nice. Very cool. I'd look through the For sale section here, Durango SC's can be had pretty cheap nowadays. If you want my thoughts on Durango, read back a few pages. Good luck!

The front for the body post and heated a little on the rear for the body post. that was all needed.

i reamed the holes before heating the body, big mistake there on my part. ordered another body and this time i'll drill a small 1/8" hole and go from there after heating it up.

Has anybody tried a body made for a Kyosho RT6 MM? I see that jconcepts has one that looks like it may fit. After seeing Touringdriver's post I started looking around and found that the RC10GT body fits the RT6, so an RT6 body may fit a DEST210.
