Is there a Aluminum servo horn that will fit in the dex210 without modification?

Thanks!

The TLR 22 servo horns are a good fit

Get the tlr alloy servo horn that suits the tlr 22 fits great with the correct offset just had to add a washer under the ball on the horn.

@Cain: I've had my hubs pushed forward since essentially the 12mm conversion puts the wheels 3mm back if you were to compare to the inline setup. So all my spacers are behind the hub. I plan to do some testing with inline axles now to compare (I have way too many tires now though!)

With the Avid 12mm hexes, how does the track width compare to stock?

The 4 spacers are to match the trailing adjustment. The point of adjusting the trailing has nothing to do with the wheelbase, you want it to stay that same, as well as maintain the angles on the steering tie rod. The adjustment is soley to adjust the position of the axle relative to the pivot point. Paying with those spacers otherwise plays with the wheelbase and steering geometry, completely separate fro the trailing adjustment.

Here's the quote from Durango on the trailing adjustment:

"The DEX210 as per kit set-up comes with the front axles in maximum trailing. This gives the front of the car the most feel and is the easiest to drive. The further forward you put the front axle to more aggressive the car becomes on initial turn in, this can help you to make the car ‘pivot’ more on entry to a corner when grip is low and steering is at a premium. When you move the axle forward in the block by use of the inserts, remember to move the 4 wishbone inserts which space the c-hub in the wishbone.

The Rule of thumb is however much trail you have you must have the same number of 1mm spacers behind the C-hub."

I think you also have to take into consideration that moving the hub forward lowers the front end a little bit so if you wanted to keep the orientation you should probably move the hubs down with the spacers as well.

So far since I've been running the 12mm conversion which is similar to having a 3mm trailing setup, I've noticed it can be hard to get the car to turn in, it has good ON power steering but that initial turn in isn't there like I would prefer it to be. This is why I'm switching to the inline axle to try the forward setup. I also think I prefer to have the adjustability and I don't care much about having my bearings in my wheels.

Does anybody know if it's possible to make the DEX210 a mid-motor buggy? Is there a conversion kit, or something?

Absolutely. This is (IMO) the best convertible buggy out there. The kit includes everything you need for 4 layouts, 3 and 4 gear mid and rear motor. If you have the RTR, the mid motor parts are included, just not the 4 gear parts (idler gear, idler shaft, 2 5x10 bearings and 2 5x8x0.5mm shims)

Default 12mm Front Hex Mod

Well good news for those interested in converting to 12mm hex for the front wheels. These axels are a perfect fit, no need to add spacers or do any cutting and the offset for the wheels will match. Just be aware you need to buy two of those and 5mm diameter hexes. In the photos below i'm using the B4.1 Avid hexes but I used my Dremel to bore out the diameter to 5mm.

One thing to note though is the wheel thread is about 2mm shorter then if you go the Kyosho route. I personally prefer the Kyosho axels because I can play with front track width, so it's just another tuning option. If you go this direction you will need 3 packs of these, 3 per side, and cut 3.5mm from the axel.

Just to confirm on the Xray conversion, what hex out there requires no mods?
