Default New Team Durango DEX210F Thread

Hey Guys, I wanted to open up a new thread for the New DEX210F Buggy. This is a new ride from Team Durango that focus' on medium to high bite carpet and astro. This car is based off the DEX210V3 in the front and the new DEX410V5 in the rear. I have this car coming next month and will be posting up any tips or advice into this post to help anyone that might need it. As soon as I have more information I'll make sure and update this thread, until then, here is the Team Durango DEX210F...

Necessary Hop-Up:

Exotek Wing Mounts - Because of the thin wall on the stock wing mounts, breakage can be an issue if your on a big track. To alleviate the issue Exotek came out with alloy wing mounts that fix the problem permanently. Here is the link to their web site:

He also has a ton of great information on the Team Durango Line up!

I have noticed, that the 410v5 and the 210F does use shorter rear shoks, than the prefius models, it looks like TD is putting the CG of both cars further down, as the rear gear boxes are lowered too!
I do like the shape of both body shells...

yeah I am liking the looks.

I do wonder how the handling is on this vehicle when you run say a saddle setup. Not saying thats ideal, etc. but with vehicles all going to a higher traction kind of setup for tracks that have that, out here outdoor can still be loose, etc.

If its possible to look into running this in those conditions with some changes, i'd be curious

With some little mod at the rear diff loop, to lift it up a little bit, like the prev. 410 modells, may u can fit the battery underneth the drive line, shortys across the center line as well!?

yeah thats a thought too.

if we had a track local here that had dedicated indoor racing, I would have this now.

I know durango isn't big like AE or Losi, but I have been quite happy with what I have for the money, quite durable and this vehicle looks to offer something interesting.

Yes, should be possible to mount them front and rear of the rear arms as well.

They both seem to be running the V3, don't know if they had the 210f to test. Would be nice to know though. Can't wait for a few of you to get it and see what you think.

anyone got a link that breaks down what the different settings on the RR hanger do to the rear toe? I see what the pills do, but nothing saying "this setting is 3 degree toe in , etc).

curious if a setup like this is more for MOD racing or would it work for stock 17.5 racing? Or are you better off looking at a MM setup?
