The lengths are the same so the truck springs will work?

I hope 4 hole pistons help all around. I couldnt break the rear loose would just dive-lean alot.

And help with bottoming out front arms would cake up with clay.

But all and all it was still good.

2nd Race Night Report In:

Well, I have to say, that my second night of racing on this buggy was 180 degree different than my first night. I had all KINDS off issues on Saturday which lead to my "disappointed" review on Sunday. (which was mostly about the track and my tires anyway) Today, Everything came together.

Track was MUCH better, my brand new tires finally broke in, a few small setup changes, and I got a tad more used to the car, and all of a sudden, this car turned into an absolute MONSTER. This car is EASILY the best RC car I have ever driven. I have never driven a car that was SO aggressive, but SO planted at the SAME TIME... usually, in most buggies, it is kind of a trade off between the two, and you have to find the middle ground..... this buggy is an absolute game changer. Here are some more additional notes after my race tonight:

- I am able to absolutely mop the floor with every other buggy in high speed sweeper stability. Where my B4 would be on edge, right on the line of becoming crazy, The 210 would feel like it was being drug around the track by a huge magnet under the dirt, and can do it significantly faster.

-2 With my medium grip track, forward traction is where the fight is.... the RM4 setup is absolutely golden. Whenever I hit the gas hard, it feels like the entire car gets sucked to the ground

-3 Is anybody elses dex210 as noisy as mine? It sounds just like an 8th scale buggy.

-4 I am more and more impressed with how well this thing jumps. Nothing lands anywhere NEAR as nice as the buggy does. We have this relativly large x-over double, with a decent downside. If you over jump it, both B4s and 22s will bounce, and either skid out, or flip over. Every time I did that with the 210 (hey, it happens), it would slap a little bit, but stays completely composed, and off the buggy goes. AMAZING.

-5 The ballcups still suck major balls... I was lucky that I didn't pop any off during any races, but during practice I did pop one. I was telling my buddies about how painfully easy the cups will pop off, and then they got to witness it first hand. I came over a jump and right as I was downsiding, a turnmarshal walked across the track. I hit the brakes, and ended up hitting the turnmarshal in the shoe at about 4 mph... and it popped a front steering rack ball cup. My buddy standing next to me on the driver stand saw the whole thing and said "holycrap.. you weren't kidding". "I don't make this stuff up", I said. That being said, I just laid off the throttle just a tad in my races to make sure i had no mistakes, and with no mistakes, comes no popped ball cups. That doesn't mean I won't hunt down a replacement set of ballcups for the car...

Overall, I think my setup is already just about nailed for my track, and the car is just amazing. Qualed 2nd tonight, and finished 2nd. I had the lead on the last lap and let the TQ by as he got by me on the inside on the same X-over I mentioned earlier.. I chased him back down and ended up crossing the line exactly 1 tenth of a second behind him.

I just got home from the track and I want to go back! Can't wait to get this buggy really warmed up.

At your 1st point, I totally agree! And thats with me running 3gear! But I believe it's more sweeping with the 4 gear.

Looked at the manual-3mm, but they dont tell me the ball size- I know the Losi 22 and the RB5 use the same ball/cup size 3x4.8, and they are solid..

Oh I know.. but the 210 uses bent ones to clear the rear dust cover.

That's only 2 cups out of 12. If you can replace the other 10, you decrease popping balls by over 80%.

Yep, that's the plan. I have a stack of 22 ball cups ready to go on, that will do the job perfectly... but gotta find those rear bent ones!
