Can you tell me where I can buy the +8mm chasis, I can't find a link to it anywhere?

Is the big advantage of the molded chassis less weight? Has one been released yet?

Also look for some more Tresrey parts coming soon! Lets get these cars dialed!!!!!!

Sorry for the dumb question but what does the +8 mean here?

It remains to be seen (for us at least), but ask AE guys how big of a difference a longer chassis made for them. I see two major advantages to it: less weight (about half of the stock alum chassis), and better stability. We have been to a few outdoor tracks where I'm sure it would have helped get through the rough sections better.

The spacer on the slipper did wear after time, you can try the following mod, then it will simply solve the problem.

agreed i believe the 8mm AE helps them a lot

anyone know when the new light longer chassis is coming out from factory ?

I am interested in the durango 2wd buggy, are there any weaknesses or areas of concern? How well does it perform in box stock form?

The 210 really only needs two hopups to make it race able - CF steering rack and aluminum RF hinge pin holder. The kit setup is ok, but softer front springs and firmer rear springs go a long way to help when running RM configuration. If you add CF front and rear towers to it the car is about bulletproof. Check out www.tresrey-usa.com for all your Durango hop up needs. Great products and top notch customer service. Great buggy for sure though, and it's the most tunable on the market.

I know the team is testing various types and lengths of chassis, but not sure if they will be releasing one or what material it will be. The +8 that Tresrey is going to carry is CF and will include the necessary spacers to take up the difference in length. As soon as we get one and get some time with it I will definitely post up how it works out.
