Looks good. Might have to try it out. AE 4.1 or 4.2 looks like they might but without one to try just can't be sure

I tried a t4 body, it doesn't work where the rear shock tower mounts.

I just got a J-concept finnisher body. Sort of works. Definitely not the best. Still waiting for Tower to tell me they have bodies in stock...

Two small mods for the Finnisher body--I turned the front body mounts to point forward. The mounts will run through the front bumper of the body.

Then I used a heat gun to make clearance for the shock towers. The body isn't too far off, but needs to be adjusted slightly. It wasn't hard to do--just got the lexan soft and stretched it out to clear the rear shock towers with the aluminum handle of a screwdriver. You could carve a block of wood into the exact shape you want, if you are that kind of guy...

Here's a picture. You'll see a lumpy bulge between the rear shock tower, plus the raised area (for the shock towers) is bulged out in the back a little. Yeah, I did that...

And I almost forgot...the wheel base and body height is completely different, so line it up and figure out how it fits BEFORE cutting anything! If you cut on the lines, you'll cut off too much. The height of the body un-trimmed is the height it needs to be, so don't remove anything inbetween the wheels until you have it fitted to the truck. Or else you'll be ordering a new body...

It fits okay. When I get my new parts and have the truck re-assembled, I'll post a picture mounted.

Default Stadium Truck Rebirth?

Here in Tucson, AZ Stadium truck has taken off. In the last 2 months we went from one truck to a full class with at least 5 on any given day. With the release of the Team Associated RC10T5m and Losi 22t 2.0, hopefully we see a DEST210 V2. Have you guys noticed an increase in popularity at your local tracks?

Yup, truck has gotten really big in pro stock and stock truck classes. I would love to see a v2 ST and SC soon!

Mod stadium truck is alive and kicking here. Two wheel drive SC is still king, but we had a good group of stadium trucks, both in mod and a few in the "sportsman" class, which is unlimited.

I'm hoping for a new one, because hopefully then I can get a new body that fits my truck?

Right now I need a new ESC for mine. My experiment with more timing didn't work out the way I was hoping... But it is my most winning vehicle, so I gotta get it back out on the track, right?

I just picked up a new truck that someone had built but never put on a track. can anyone suggest a good setup up sheet for an outdoor track. I would like a good baseline. My plan is to run a 7.5 with a full size pack. Thanks!

Are the rear arms still a weak point? Are there any other arms that can be made to fit T4 etc...

They've never been an issue for me. I have 5 210 vehicles and I've broken 1 front and 1 rear arm over the past few years. Instead, what I break a lot of is the RF suspension mount. I finally got fed up and went aluminum.. which means the arms will probably break, but so far so good.

Any idea if this kit should fit a Dest210? It's for a 2wd Desc210. Thanks

It should fit fine. The turnbuckles are the same length on both trucks.
