Well it all depends as I see them not work along with other brand buggies not working.

It really depends on if the setup you put on works for you no matter what brand car you have. The cars that seem to have all kinds of extra adjustments more like a touring car has I normally see racers struggle a little because their is so many adjustments it takes time to go thru them all and see where each one likes to be. Normally one night of racing isn't enough to time to try out all the adjustments.

Lots of guys buy a new buggy and think it shoulod be dialed in one night but that just don't seem realistic. You might put on a good setup to start with or you might not but in the end more time on the track gives you a better chance to dial it in.

I hope someone shows up with the new Durango just so I can check it out. Right now buggy class is getting good as now we finally have more than 2 brands to choose from for a change. Its exciting to see the new stuff do well but its still amazing to see older designs still doing just as well. Its great for the buggy class. In our area it is really growing which is great.

I think there are some issues regarding the new TD HD ball cups, First run/race of my 410V3 yesterday the ballcups pop off several times more compared to the total number of times my stock ballcups pop off in my 410v1 for the whole 2 years i'm using it

Come on folks it's going to take some time to figure all the issues and setups with this new kit. Every new Kit has it's problems it must over come. Just go to the TLR 22 post look at all the bugs they have had to work out. Plus with Tresrey stuff coming to the US for the 210!

The setup pdf is too big to attach so I'll try and go over my setup from this past weekend, it worked GREAT.

Front
30wt losi oil, 4 hole 1.3 piston, dark green spring, middle on tower, outside on arm.
Longest camber link, 2mm under inner ballstud
24mm ride height
4mm trailing axle
AKA rebars with AKA cutdown 4wd insert

Rear
20wt losi oil, 4 hole 1.2 piston, Black spring, middle on tower, middle on arm
camber link second from inside on hub, 2mm spacer under ballstud on gearbox
23mm ride height
hubs spaced in middle, 3deg antisquat, 3deg toe-in
M4 holeshots with AKA red insert

Battery to the rear, running boosted 13.5

If I missed anything let me know. If you want me to email you my setup hit me up at [email protected] and I'll send it to you. It's basically one of Fischers setups with a bit stiffer spring in the front, I loved it.

What did you do for a spur gear to run 13.5 boosted?

Not quite. I can get 24mm ride height easily. I wouldn't go any higher than that anyways. It's the kit springs.

reamed out 79 tooth B4 spur, 27 pinion, HW esc with not quite enough boost Motor was coming off around 120deg but I was more concerned with learning the buggy and track to worry about all out speed.

Cush had his first run with the 210 yesterday and it went pretty well- qualified 2nd in the B and won it. We attended a cash race and both of his 4wd Durango cars were running great so they were the focus of the day and the racing with the 210 was really just shakedown, but overall the car performed well. No issues with ballcups even with some crashes in the early rounds and no other breakages. Had there been more time between rounds I definitely would have swapped in some 4 hole pistons as the 6 holes just do not provide enough damping, but handling wise the car turns very well and has excellent rear traction in both high and low speed sections. A great starting point for us to really start tuning this coming weekend. Setup is pretty close to stock, only changes were the shock oil (35ae front and 30losi rear), 1.5 antisquat, and extra .5 of toe in the rear, and removed one washer under the front inner ballstud.
