I've had the same good experience with the handful of orders I placed. 3 day air shipping for transmitter lipos got them here for raceday when the lhs couldn't source them (first time they couldn't find what I needed.)

Default dex210

great thread to read, follow it for weeks and been a good head starter before i got my kit
i race on a med grip 8th scale open following clay track in Nelson, New Zealand
i have owned a b4.1 and a x6sqd and love the mid set on Nz track

i also have a dex410 which i run j concept rulux rims on so i have modifyed my 210 front axles (machined half mm off to fit and run imperial bearings) so i cross rear rims between both cars

have photos but can figure out how to post them on here

cheers

Default Diff issue

When I tighten the diff screw I get to a point where I hear a slight snap sound. At this point the outdrives begin to turn in the same direction when I hold the main gear in place (instead of opposite directions). What have I done wrong here? This happens before the screw/nut are close to being fully tightened.

sorry bit misleading
i run the j concept rulux b44 front and rear rims on my dex410, and run the same rulux rims on the dex210 but have got the b4 rulux front rims and used the b4 imperial bearing, and have machined the dex210 alu shaft down from 5mm to 4.5mm to make them fit

also make the car look nicer on the track than it already does as those rims look awesome

For everyone having problems with the 210 ball cups, you may want to try my solution. I have done this on all 3 of my Durango cars. The JC rear ball cup are a perfect replacement for the bend ones from TD. For this set up, I have use Losi ball cups with HB/HPI ball studs (From the D4, ask for the long one). I have never pop those Losi white ball cups, hope this can help.

Where are you guys putting velcro to hold the body on in the rear? I realized after not putting in the rear post that the chassis is either really low or a gaping space near the rear

I picked my kit up at the FLGS yesterday, built a fair bit today (still need to do shocks and turnbuckles). A single colour spray bomb and I should be able to race at the season opener this weekend

The sound is the snap ring that holds the thrust bearing assembly in, popping out. I had the same problem, try flipping the snap ring over.

Is there a certain way the snap ring should go in or are we just hoping one side is better than the other? I can't really tell which side is rounded or not, like other people have suggested.

Also, when the screw/nut are tightened should the main gear be able to wobble left to right when you hold the outdrives?

there should be one side of the snap ring that has a sharper edge to it compared to the other side.

My diff gear wobbles in the outdrives slightly if you try to move it, no problem with that.
