Yeah, RM4 sounds perfect for that situation..I never found the steering to be too much in that config, but depending on what tire you were using, try something less aggressive, or a different compound.

Anyone have a new or nearly-new 210 to sell that's not on the For Sale thread yet?

Took my buggy out for a short test drive today at SRS. Was dry and dusty, since racing was still several hours away. I was amazed at how well it handled. I did end up going with the 4 hole piston mod. Very impressed. All stock except the steering rack in carbon. Bought some drill bits to properly make 4 hole pistons out of the blanks included with the kit. Was told by staff in the shop they were going to start carrying Durango parts. Off to a good start!

Question, since i run a multiple tracks, does this buggy handle outdoor hard packed and indoor clay fairly well with the same set up? (except for tire selection of course), or am i going to be changing set ups all the time?

To answer your question. Yes, the same set-up will work, but to get the most from ANY brand car, you will want to change things according to conditions changing. It may not be all the time, as indoor conditions tend to be much more consistent.

True. But for me i found my b4.1 worlds set up worked on a variety of tracks with minimal adjustments, but on the other end of the spectrum my Losi 22 needed a lot of tuning depending on the track. I was just wondering where the 210 fit into the scope of things.

+1. Cush's setups for our home tracks tend to be very similar outdoor/indoor, provided the outdoor track is groomed with good traction. Usually just simple spring/oil changes and battery placement. Both tracks are generally very fast with larger jumps.

Anyone know if the TLR alum servo horns (22) have the same offset as the kit servo horns on this buggy?

Almost exactly. They are the best servo arm I've found for the buggy yet.

What's wrong with the stock ones? I am sure the cheap ball cups would pop off before you broke a servo horn!

Thinking about doing this below and was wondering if I should upgrade the horn. The more I think about it. I think the plastic horn would be easier to replace than a servo.

I did this on mine and love the lack of slop I found with the plastic parts.

Zipper,

After racing off and on for years, I have found that Associated cars may be the best for "throwing it on the track" with little adjustment. To this effect, I just put a T4 on the track with the stock (manual) setup on a clay track and it was almost dialed -and it did not even have proper front tires.

I'd be curious to get the same feedback as I am just putting the finishing touches on my 210. This being said, after taking a good 4-5 full practice days to dial in my RB5 SP2, I doubt anything will be so easily dialed in as an Associated.
