I have a dex210v1 81 tooth spur gear 8.5 motor. What would be the best pinion for indoor track. Also how much better is the newer version dex210v2???

24T would be a good start.

Any suggestions to keep it cool and why is it stuttering?
Dal I noticed tonight when I was putting mine together that the rear axles would bind when I tightened the wheels, I am using the plastic hex's as I do not have alloy ones yet but found that by putting a 5mm id shim behind the outer bearing inside the upright problem solved.

That also sounds under geared. I ran 35/69 at motorama with a revtech killshot and still used like 65* of timing for it to get to 140*F

I also am at 33-35/69 (depending on the track I'm at) with a D3.5 17.5t and temp 135 to 145 depending on pinion. Mid to max can timing blinky class.

probably a really obvious answer to this but regarding the V2 ball studs the TD site says 2mm. What's 2mm on the new studs? How are they different to the V1's?

The hex of the new ballstuds is 2mm, instead of the 2.5mm of the v1 version

but the diameter is the same, so the dimecX ballcups will still work. They're just a bit thicker around the hex for durability.

Ok that's what I was concerned about, so by making the hex smaller they made them stronger.

Got confirmation yesterday that my +8mm V2 chassis and side pods have shipped, I would guess that means the kits should be soon or are on their way out the door as well

Are you trying to get more grip from the mid motor?
Adding weight to the suspension hanger is more effective than putting the weight in the rear. Or adding weight near the rear axle.
You can also try 4 toe and 1.5 or 0 antisquat.

Another quick trick is adding a single 7g lead automotive weight to each rear hub. That instantly give you more rear traction.

I have the used the brass hanger on the RR and It's the best way to hang weight on that end but I always say better to add weight inside the wheels if possible. Such as a brass battery stopper or brass rear FR hanger.
