I just tried it this weekend and my RM car was alot better and behaved more like my MM4 car. I actually ran faster with my RM car than my MM for the first time. The car was a lot easier to control in the air.

Well I have always liked my RM cars. I may just try that setup if I get my hands on a shorty soon. Got a few weeks before our local track opens up though.

I run my electronics all down the center, save for the RX and transponder. I can't say I really noticed a difference between running it in the center or the side pods, except that it looks nicer and doesn't require extra ballast weight to balance.

On an unrelated note, I finally got a replacement gearbox with intact camber tabs, but not the type B. Any suggestions for reinforcing the area or otherwise keeping the tabs from snapping off?

Has anyone been to Amainhobbies site yet? I was looking for parts for my Durango Sct and they have a slot open now and "parts" for a Dex210v2. Nothing for sale as a kit but do have parts listed.

it's been "a couple of months a way" for a couple of months!

It's hard to imagine they would let the car sit on "backorder" for this long (since oct?) and still not have anything announced.

We've been thinking February for a long time now. It's almost February with no updates. The parts on the website keep getting pushed back over and over again. I wish they'd just say 'future release" instead of keeping them perpetually 2 weeks ahead of whatever date it currently is.

That is odd for them not to sell any 2wd buggies at all for months

Why TLR22 caps? Durango has new ones coming out.

Part #: TD230035

Are you referring to these things?


Or the cone ones?
