Laker67, thanks for your offer about setup, but i will run a different layout on my 210, as i changed and will be changing quit a bit on my chassis, so i have to find my own one, just one question, do you think a gear diff is better for carpet?

Default What do you think?

Hi guys,

What do you think about that modification?
I still have to figur out, where and how to place the servo and about the high of the ackermann plate, to eliminate bump steer, but till there, it was a direkt fit to the dex210 mounting plate and it is now a fully ball raced steering asambling, without those bushings, that are running in the plastic armes and i have lowered the cg, because i will lay the servo down to the chassis and bring some weight away from the front, as the servo will go back by around 15-20 mm!

Micholix,
That looks pretty interesting. Curious to see how it turns out. What rack is that from?

I made the mistake of picking up some DE Racing wheels for carpet racing. I didn't realize that the inner ribs were lower than the outer ones. When you put on narrow carpet tires, the outside sits higher than the inside so the tire surface is on a bit of an angle. I went back to the stock yellow wheels and everything fits fine.

Petit RC setups for gear diff on carpet are mixed between 5 and 7 k oil. I am going blind into the exact carpet surface, would one be easier to drive than the other?

I noticed that the Durango V4 4wd Buggy has the Black coated shafts on the shocks . Will they fit on the Dex210 V2 ? I'm looking for coated Front shock shafts.

Hi Wally,

Up front, this is a steering set from the b5 #91391. The distance between the two steering arms/ steering bellcrank brace is exactly the same as dex one, so if things turn out good, you can use the aloy hop up steering from AE, or any aftermarket one.

I'm happy to do some step by step, if things go well...

The rear shock shaft is the same length, as the 410 buggy one, but the front once will only fit/be the same as the 210v1 shafts, because the v2 uses shorter shock bodys and shafts.


Here's a little chart:
Rear shock bodys all 210/all 410: 31 mm stroke
Rear shock shafts all 210/all 410: 52 mm

Front shock body 210v1/all 410: 23 mm stroke
Front shock body 210v2: 21.5 mm stroke

Front shock shaft 210v1/all 410: 44 mm
Front shock shaft210v2: 42.5 mm

The DEX410 rear shock shafts will fit the rear of the DEX210v2.
The fronts are a different length, so no coated shock shafts.
