As other buddy said will be 14mm rears, as well the new 14mm hexes for 410 models. Its supposed to handdle better the new more powerful motors in very hi grip surfaces like astro.

The front shares the same asso sistem, but with different bearings (5x10x4) Common nitro clutch bell bearing size.

cool car for sure but will something designed and tested on astroturf run well on a typical US track?

If it was only offered in a mid motor configuration, then I would say it might have a hard time here in the states. Since it's "convertible" to a rear motor as well it should have no problem.

Did you not see the car at the Worlds? Just because a car is run on an astro track doesn't mean it was solely built for those tracks.. associateds and losi's are tested over there too, plus the 410 works just fine on dirt. No car manufacturer builds cars for only one type of track. Jorn and Hupo are dirt track guys.

Even mid motor cars excel on dirt.

Billy was running his Dex210. Ryan and the rest of the team were not. It was simply too close to the Nats to get the cars and have time to set them up for a proper showing.

My mid motor XXX (Atomic Carbon CR2 conversion) has more forward traction on loose tracks than the car did as a standard rear motor XXX! I'm not sure why so many Americans can't setup a mid motor car but then again I also don't understand why the Ford Mustang still has a solid rear axle either!

Pretty much no-one had a mid motor car at the worlds, apart from a few x-factory cars. Durangos, Losis and Ansmanns/TeamCs all were rear motor. And no mid motor cars made the A main.

Durangos at the Worlds (all rear motor) were prototypes, not the production models.

According to the parts list, the 210 will have 14 3mm diff balls and a caged thrust bearing. Does anyone make ceramic thrust bearings?
