It's a little tighter than I set my AE diffs, but I run stock sc mostly so I'm not trying to hook up big power and I can run it pretty loose. The 210 diffs seem to like being set a bit tighter, but not enough to cause a push IMO.

I'm using the stock diffs on both my dex210 chassis and after 2-3 week still smooth as butter ... The used roller I got ceramics with which were really bad and chirpy no matter how much I tightened it

+1 Ceramics do not work well in the 210 diff.

Thanks for the feedback... How did you or anyone else who owns a DEX210 install the thrust bearing? Did you put the side w/ the exposed bearings facing towards the smaller spacer?

There's a diff build guide on the TD website (In The Pits/Tips and Tricks) that is very detailed and specific. Follow that guide and you'll be golden

Put the FTW Ackerman brace (carbon), and now my bump steer is back. Anyone else using this brace and have that problem? I may just end up going back to the stock brace. No problems with it so far.

Line the two up and measure the holes to see if there is a difference.

That wasnt the issue. Thickness was the issue. Back to the stock brace. The FTW is too thick.
