Amain does not show any kits or RTR for the 210, unless they are in the clearance section.

ROCCK Run for the Riches

Got stepped on by a marshal in sub freezing temperatures and was lucky enough to not break and finish 5th after qualifying 7th!

The shorty pack shifting the weight forward gave me the exit steering I was looking for without sacrificing much rear grip. Drilled new holes for the rear battery stop and used foam in the front to take up 10mm of gap.
Slight change in rear RC and now it's dialed.
That also opened up some real estate behind the pack to move my rx and esc to the center of the chassis
Can't wait to take it out next weekend

In RM mode that's exactly how I'd recommend running a shorty or nearly so.

I ran mine all the way back, but that was in blinky. Mm4 will create a ton of weight transfer, especially with a mod motor, so shock oils/pistons will really come into play. I went 5wt lighter in the rear, and the lost on power steering almost altogether.

Gullwing arms give more steering and makes the front end sit a bit lower, which also alters roll center. (better for smooth and high bite tracks) Straight arms are less sensitive and has less steering which is great for low bite / blown out tracks.

I'm looking for TD330599 (type B aluminum LRC -2mm RR pivot block), I'll be at Motorama and ideally want it before then if anyone has one they'll part with. PM me if you got one.

Gullwing arms don't change roll center at all. The only thing that matter is the location of the inner and outer hinge pins in relation to the camber link. That doesn't change. A gullwing arm only affects the shock mounting location. A change to the shock tower can negate that as well. I honestly don't see how one can handle any differently than the other except for the effect that a slightly lower mounted shock has.

I have access to a few of them. All NIP. A friend from Scotland carried them over but it's expensive. The GBP rate was just higher and shipping to him added costs as well. I'll PM you details but if anyone else is interested, PM me.

It's not the Durango part, but it has the same LRC -2mm characteristics and is much cheaper.
