They're not essential, but almost essential, moreso the Rear. I've only toasted one front in the 2 years I've had a DEX. But had a few rears fail which has ended my raceday...

One thing I noticed is this car handles very well but it doesn't suit everyone's driving style.
I have mine set up so it pivots corners easy, slight push out of corners under power but then I never blip my throttle or punch it out of corners. I drive it very linear like a 1/12 pan car. Others that drive my car say it oversteers and they can't get used to it..
Try some set ups as reference points and each time out make only one adjustment as this car reacts to changes easily.
Thanks for the reply. I've ordered the plastic side rails and the flex brace. I really think the problem is the lack of flex. I race a B44.1 at all the big races and really like it but I hate ball diffs.

Looks like I am getting one this weekend.

Plan on running an Orion 6.5 with a Havoc Pro, any good starting points on pinion size?

Finally figure out my buggy it was on the rail tonight and broke the track record.. I got the DEX410R V3 regular shocks makes the car really Bouncy so it's time to upgrade to big bore.. Plastic side rails really help to haven chassis flex..

On tracks with huge, high-energy jumps, the rear alloy diff hoop is necessary. If you land nose hard off a huge jump the chassis flexes foreward like a "U" and the plastic rear diff hoop can break.

That being said, it's just one of those "added insurance" parts...it's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. IMO

+1 Me neither. Actually I added them in a moment of excessive shopping for hopups..and broke the rear bulk head. Been running plastics ever since, no issues. Save yourself $40 and put it into some nice Ceramic bearings or other hopups.

The standard shocks don`t make the car bouncy , your shock setup makes them bouncy .
