Our indoor track is low to medium bite. I have ran it twice in stock class. I have for the most part stock setup. I am running 75/34 with 1000cst in the diff. I am a rookie at racing buggys. The fast guys at my track run low 18s and with that setup and only racing a buggy twice i hit 20.1. So it has potential. I still messing with the setup. I was just looking to see any other set ups out there.

For the motor mount issue I mentioned, I'll use this image:



As you can see, the outer screw holes have a kind of "lip" around them, so as the pinion gets bigger, they are tapered in respect to it. However the lip from what I have here in my hands doesn't seem as thick, so you could technically mount your pinion in such a way its in front of the lip, and you can go REAL big with pinions if needed.
Alright seems a few more vehicles out there. Looking at the gear ratio chart for the dex210F, there is a very wide range you can go. Again though, my question comes back to that "lip" I mentioned.

Anyone else see what I am seeing and have opinions? I think its not a factor, so curious.

heck, with the range, you could only need to buy the cheap 81T spur and still be good for gearing I bet.

Is there a CF battery brace option instead of the velcro strap option?

I too do not care for the velcro straps, so I threw this together with some modified body posts and a scrap piece of cf.

I'm gonna go ahead and claim first for having a Mike Gay front wing mount on the 210F. I have Mike's custom 3d printed mount on my B5m and it awesome! Can't wait to run this F with one!

Got to run mine for the first time on sunday. Car felt really good right out of the box, it definitely has potential. Unfortunately I broke a front shock shaft right at the base of the threads. It really didn't appear to that bad of incident so hopefully this is just a freak thing. I've never broken a shock shaft on any car before this.

The same thing happened to me in my Dex210v2. Broke right front shock shaft at threads first day in track. I run emulsion, against Fred's wishes . I have been using the 44mm titanium ones for a year. No issues.
