Default HELP!

Hey guys at the moment I am leaning towards the tlr cars, but they don't have a 4wd, are a little more expensive, but my lhs has them. However I found a place a little ways away that carries Durangos. I can't decide so I need you to convince me to buy Durango! I am putting an equivalent post in TLR page so do your best! Thanks for the help!

If you have high bite track, then they would be comparable, on med/low bite the 22 suffers miserably IMO..

Just get a real car like a B4.1 WC, then you don't have to worry

Um, he never mentioned the B4.1 WC, he's trying to decide between 2 specific cars not 3, please try and keep up with the question asked..

Rock it, and let us know, there are plenty guys out there who prefer it, maybe you will too..If you decide its not for you, the ball diff is the most durable I have used, and I have only used the TD steel balls so far..

Hey Guy, I recently got a DEX210 and im in love. I don't own a TLR 22 so i can not compare but i can tell you that the DEX210 is nice. Material quality is great, shocks are super nice (some of the nicest i have ever used). The oil diff is easy to build and mine has never leaked, after many ball diffs I was happy to go back to an oil diff in all honesty. The chassis tub has plenty of space so fitting your electronics is easy. The amount of tunablity is mind boggling but the box setup has been working well for me so far. I race on indoor clay with medium grip using an 8.5 turn motor. Parts are easy to get for me, but i'm not sure about your area, always good to check. In all honesty parts availability can make or break your experience with a car. If you choose to go with a DEX210 you will not be disappointed.

If you're running the spur on the left, it means the box is in 4-gear configuration Which is the normal way to run a mid motor. Most important when running mid is to use 0 or 1.5 antisquat not the 3 degree block.

I'm confused, it is 3 gear, I just flipped the plate to the other side when I switched it from rear motor. Should I flip it back? Is it evident yet I have no idea what I'm doing? I don't have a manual so I just put it together how it made sense from pictures that I have seen.

I've been using the RC Shox rear camber mount replacement part but am looking at trying another brand. Other than Tresrey's piece, anyone know of another one they like that I may want to try? Thanks for any suggestions.

Default MM3 vs MM4

Can some explain the difference in running the car in either mm3 or mm4. I picked dex210 to run carpet indoor a few months back. I came setup mm3. I have not changed it as I was missing the parts for mm4 and just left it.

Thanks
