Run the stock plastic hexes, will help in preventing the axles from breaking. I stopped using them after I noticed they bent really easily too but that's to be expected. I wish they would release aluminum driveshafts instead, maybe if we are lucky MIP will also give us the puck system.

Anyone purchase the recently released TD RF hanger yet? Saw it on tower but not much information is given about it. Here's the part# TD330565

Recurring problem:

Anyone have a problem keeping the front top deck spacer (Part # 320123-2) screwed into their car? My left one keeps popping out. Is there a trick to it? None of the other Durango owners have had any problem with this.

I am wondering if the problem could be a stripped screw hole on the side of the servo side-wall thingy (I think it is part # 320124-1) that it screw into.

It's a plastic on plastic situation so I am afraid to use threadlock.

I've had the same problem so I put a little longer screw with the smallest amount of locktite and havnt had an issue since.

It calls for a 10mm screw, I'll try with a 12mm and a small dab of locktite and see how that works.

Thanks.

Just a note for anyone that has upgraded to LRC -2 block on there V1.

I had a driveshaft pop out twice racing yesterday and it seems the 210V2 runs the newer slight longer out drives to stop issues of Driveshafts popping at with Max droop in the rear.

TD310417

Also ran MM4 on a loose wet dirt track with 50g of weight on the rear and it handled awesome as grip came up it got better.

Certainly changed my opinion on RM vs MM, it definitely had less rear grip vs RM but the extra steer and the more balance in the car give me higher corner speeds and easier change of direction, I was also running the shock's front mounted.

Fastest laps were set by MM and RM setups.

Anyone interested in a carbon fiber motor plate? Trying to shed a bit more weight. They weigh in at 12g, stocker is 22g. Almost half the weight. I have 10 that will be ready monday!

I know carbon fibre is strong but im a little concerned it would snap around the motor screw slots as it gets thin there

Yep. Either c/a glue it back on or get traxxas ones. The part number is a few pages back. Ive been running the traxxas ones for weeks with no problems.

The V2 Manual calls M3x12mm.
If your Plastic is stripped out, may u can use one of these thread-inserts!?

Good to know about the updated length in the manual.

What are those inserts and how do they work? I tried googling them but I just get forum threads talking about various DEX inserts.

Sorry, but i don't know the exact word in english!?
I bought those inserts in an metal/hardwear store.

As an example, for a m3 thread, you have to drill a m5 thread in your plastic part and than screw that insert into that part, the inner diameter thread of the insert is than again m3.

I hope i could describe it correct, as my english is not the best!

Here is a link to a shop in austria, may this can help a bit more?

Are you referring to the shock end popping out of the tiny bushing that holds it to the arm? If you are just add a 1mm washer in between the screw and the shock end to keep it from ever poping out.

Most times it is possible to use an even longer screw and fit a nut on the inside, I've done this on several 210 buggies.
