Good question. Somewhere around 80-85 ft I would say.
I am getting the electronics in this
weekend.
What surface you on and what pistons are you running.
Our track as a 100ft strait and i'm running 20T on a 6.5 motor.
The track is carpet with big jumps and some parts in wood.
The pistons i'm running are 2X1.6mm at the front and 3X1.7mm at the rear.

Ran my 210f for first time in indoor dirt/ clay. Med to high. For the most part it was fun to drive. My 11 year old son was able to drive it a little faster than me. Ugh.

I think the oils were a little to thick. And it was slightly loose in back. I think in need a little more weight in the rear as well

Setup:
25 degree castor.
4 gear metal, 10,000
Front 2x1.6, 35wt, TD dark green
Rear 3x1.6, 37.5 wt, Kyosho Pink
8.5, 87/21
Ride height 22mm
Was a little loose on landing and squirrelly on quick take offs. Would get loose on the straight away if punched too hard. Was able to clear triples easily!!
I'm thinking of going front 3x1.4
And rear 2x1.6
Or keep front 2x1.6 and go to rear 2x1.7. Need a little more pack. And probably lighter oils and maybe springs too
Thinking light blue rear and black front.

Any advice would be great.

I didn't pull sway bar. Will next time.
I do have 7000. Was going to try that and maybe try 2 metals gears.

Thanks Cain!!

no prob. I'd say start with the swaybar pull first, I found that really helped a lot. From there go with diff fluid next.

I am trying to recall but I thought there was 2 setups included with the manual for say super high grip and something that was just high grip.

Back out of the track today and had a blast.
Went to 5000 wt in diff, much better, gonna try 3000 next time. Somebody in another thread said to try lower oils for high traction. So I did, and it was better.
Front 1.6x2, 30wt, TD black
Rear 2x1.7, 30wt, TD light blue.
Ride height 23mm.
Took rear sway bar off.
It was so fun to dive. Still little loose in rear coming out of corners. And on heavy throttle.
Gonna mess with camber links now.

good stuff. still working on getting my B6 to feel as consistent as my dex210F felt. Just no practice days I can make so its tune at the track during race days which is hard now that the kids come along.

Are you back on carpet?? You have the B6 with laydown?? After driving my F, I tried my sons V2 and it was so different. The F fits my style. I really love it. Got my hobby vibes going crazy again. Gonna try the gull wings in mine now. Worked well on the V2.

yeah we are doing indoor carpet racing again. Still not as consistent with my B6 as I was with the dex210F but its getting there.

I think the interesting thing I see is how stiff the springs are on my B6 versus what the dex210F and dex410V5 use.

And my dex410v5 is probably my best handling vehicle, go figure

It's amazing how different the F drives. I can only imagine how it would be on carpet. I am having a blast on the dirt. Will keep you updated on changes to setup.

Hey guys, just picked up an F and will be trying it out tonight. Having a hard time finding 12mm alloy rear hexes. Anyone have a set or know who may have them? Google has let me down. Thanks

Thanks man, been there, as you can see they are out of stock. The plastic setup on this car seems like a cheaper version of what Schumacher does.
