I think the confusion may have been about the whole 2 gear thing in the diff and then the comment on the 7K fluid.

To be honest I am just running stock indoors carpet, the car is that good like that. I do plan to try the vehicle outdoors dirt. If it all works out I'll make that my standard car all around. If not, I do have a plan b equipped V2 with lots of upgrades here

for pinion with the MMR at 40 degree timing I was at a 34T pinion with the 75T spur gear and it was great.

When I went to 50 degree timing, I went down to a 30T pinion and probably could go down a bit more too.

The maclan motor is very fast, very torquey. Very happy with its performance.

Here is a vid from the first race with it (black and white car):

Cain: have you tried the 210v2 and the 210f on the same track? It sounds like you are liking the F better?

yes I have. I even tried the v2 with a traverse shorty using the plan b chassis and a 3 gear setup.

The 210v2 with plan b is fast and predictable with the setup I had on the car. The DEX210F however was faster through the turns, pretty much went where I wanted with less slowdown to get it to turn. I also felt a bit more consistent with it, enough so I was looking at a tire change or stiffer swaybar for even more steering.

It was like one car was cake, and the other was cake with your favorite frosting.

Went to order a new body for my 210v2 this morning and the ones for the v2 and v3 are both sold out and pending at Tower. Sigh..

Anyone know where I can order one?

You interested in the J-Concepts Finnisher bodies? I actually like them better. But then I'm comparing it to the V1 Durango alien style body. Did the V2 and V3 Durango bodies go cab-forward as well? I like the Finnisher bodies better because they don't dip back down after the cab.

Hey all. I recently picked up a used dex210 rtr chassis. I was wondering if anyone had a good outdoor setup in mm4 configuration? This track is the type of track that holeshots and things like that hook up on. I want to run it in mm4 because that's what my T5m is. Thanks.

Running mm4 here and have found you need 3' anti squat unless you like lots of drifting.

A kid at my local track put the finisher body on his V2 without any problems. The V2 body is cab forward and the V3 body is more of a mid cab body. I personally like the V3 body better then all of them.

The Finisher body isn't designed to fit over the newer, larger side pods. You can kinda cram it on, but I'd rather get one of the newer bodies.

I'll check out eBay and see if I can get one for a decent price.

Durangos have been working well for me.
I'm upgrading my Dex 210 to the Dex 210 version 3 soon.
I didnt even get to run the version 2 because off road died off in general last year.
But I heard it's picking up this year.

Been trying to purchase 2 bodies for my V3 & V2 Buggies and this adventure has turned into a piss off joke. so my Dingos are going bye bye for the very last time.

When you guys do the battery mod how are you holding the battery in? Double sided tape?

Double sided tape, I also put the battery stops either side of the shorty and the camber link's above are a good backup if the battery comes loose.

I just did several race meets with this setup, and crashed alot the battery didn't move an inch.

i also run mine further back than other's, right under the rear brace.

Car has alot more rear grip this way similar to a b5m. really good modification highly recommend it
