@Jcopeland: I hear you on after layout changes slickness. Wowsa!

usually I get 2x3 days of practice out of a set of Typos at OCRC. I run a 5.5 in my 410 and a 6.5 in my 210. I think I'm much easier on the throttle than most are though. Feather fingers!

Since my local shop stopped carrying Durango parts (not that they ever had a good selection) I've put a lot of time and effort into looking at DIY and CNC and 3D printers. I've always dreamed of designing my own car and I had designed several parts in high school when I was learning Autocad for the first time. (1996!!) All that being said has led me to create this forum in which I would like to invite all the Durango kids

Does anyone think that there isnt as much lock on the v2 or am i doing something wrong? I have all the linkages set up and the transmitter!

The c-hubs were updated a while back to prevent excess steering throw that could lock up the steering assembly. It's probably a case of your v1 having the old style c-hubs. Pic showing the differences between the hubs.

That's why I only go to OC/RC for big races. Track thrashes cars and tires. LRH is a great little track to experiment with setups on. Usually needs very little to no setup changes to translate to OC/RC very well. and a set of typos last forever there. For the DEX210 I plan on running dirt web fronts with bar code rears, and a full set of dirt webs on the DEX410V4. I like my 4 wheel drive cars to have super aggressive steering.

I am also looking for more steering on my v2. I run rm4 on outdoor loose,dusty clay. Tazers or bowties are the tires. Power on is ok, juat need more initial turn in without getting on the brakes much if at all. Rear is locked just need steering.

Do not know by actual weight but the dimec20 chassis is noticeably lighter when I switched over.

Just changed from the v1 alloy chassis (182g)to the dimec20 8mm+ type b (149g)

And from v1 kit 210 RM to v2 210 MM with dimec20 type b was 1650g to 1587g

I see your using the angle ball for the bump steer link as well. That would help for it not locking up as well.

To those that have switched to the dimec20 chassis, just switched myself, did you notice a loss of droop for the rear if using the LRC hangers? When I tried the 1.5 LRC the rear arms would stop on the chassis. I had to switch to the HRC 0 RF hanger in order to gain some of it back. Right now I have 0 HRC RF combined with the LRC RR which makes 3 degrees of anti squat correct?

That would be a noticeable difference. Also running 14 gauge motor and battery wires saves more then you would think and helps in lightening the car.

You should be able to free some more weight too somehow. My MM weighs in at 1560, and that's with about 20g of 13g wire that I used because I wanted my esc down the center. Regular 200g shorty, stock wheels, v1 +8 body. Oh nevermind its the RS that's saving me a lot of weight, that's about 20g less then most esc.

You can try running less trailing. Use the 3mm or 2mm insert, and shim according. That will make the steering more aggressive. It you still need more, you can try using a shorter front upper link by moving the camber link holes closer.
