wonder if they will offer 12mm hexes that are alloy? If not, assuming the exotek setup will fix as it appears to work fine for the dex210V3.

with tower having that e-cash stuff going on and super saver discounts going on too, works out to about $285 shipped.

tempted lol.

yeah, I mean to be fair the other cars out there get great discounts too, so a lot of it will be how much is the worth of the new car versus what is out there from tower like the B5M stuff.

But it does look nice or sure.

I see the last two big races that JP Richards and Travis Amescua where at they ran the 201 V3 and those tracks where high bite with slicks. It is still better suited to carpet.

to confirm, you mean the dex210V3 is better than the dex210F for carpet? Sorry my brain is still off today lol.

The last two big races where the one in Ohio OCRC and The Reedy Rce which where on high bite clay and the team guys ran the 210V3. The 201F is much better suited to carpet and astro turf type racing.

do you think at all it could be the newness of the vehicle versus running a known commodity like the DEX210V3, albeit with the shorty sideways mod I am assuming.

I personally wouldn't draw that conclusion. I would actually highly doubt it. The very last thing I ever care about is what a team driver does. I don't know their justification for doing things. I don't know if they are being told to do something. I don't honestly know their overall knowledge level and you'll never convince me that they are all highly knowledgeable. You see kids being sponsored. You won't convince me they know anything technical. All I do know for certain is that they are skilled drivers. That alone is not enough to base a sound decision on. I even consider their setup sheets completely worthless.

Figure Travis developed the 210F and he did run it when my friends went to Maine for a race but it was carpet so the 210F was better suited. JP Richards is new to the team so he wouldn't of been familiar with either two cars but I'm sure Travis steered him the better car for dirt which is the V3. My guess is you can probably get away with the 210F running stock on clay but mod running a 5.5 or 6.5 probably not so much unless you have maximum traction.

Default Dex210F indoor clay.....

Would'nt the 210F work great on clay as well? It seems everyone with a B5M is going to a lay down tranny moving motor closer to center. Seems like the 210F follows that principle and maybe improves on it...? I ordered a 210F going to run 17.5 class indoor clay so I hope my logic is sound LOL....
