I'm not sure if its just an early batch issue, which I will email exotek about tomorrow but I was unable to slide the stock slipper shaft through the two I ordered. It makes it about halfway and stops. Right now I have no choice but to use the direct spur mount since the included m3x46mm screw does slide through. Just currently don't have a Kimbrough spur.
Ok thanks for the feedback, so the mount uses a spur from say a touring car, do you need the one peice top shaft for it to work or not?

You don't need the one piece topshaft to us the direct spur mount, the 3mm screw fits the stock topshaft just fine. But in my situation I wanted to keep the stock slipper setup and use the aluminum topshaft but can't. This I think is an issue with an early batch from exotek though. No where on the page does it mention that the direct spur is required for the topshaft.

It's funny how technology goes full circle. 25 years ago we didn't have slippers. Then they came out and it became the mandatory thing to have. Now people are going back to removing them. Go figure.

Great news, Exotek's customer service is incredible. Received an email from Mike today when up closer inspection he did notice a cut ridge at the center inside hole on a couple shafts, this was probably the reason I could not slide the stock slipper shaft through. He is sending me two shafts to replace the faulty ones.

@redo: Love your custom chassis setup. Have you had a chance to drive it yet? I think you have been working on it for a while. Do any of the stock bodies fit?

What ESC are you using? Kinda looks like the Orion..but red? Keep up the good work!

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've been meaning to make it out to LRH! I'm also considering moving to general area of OCRC and LRH next year. I'm in Burbank now. I travel all over LA country and down to Anaheim for work so I can usually hit a track after work etc. I'll let you know when I plan to head down. Thanks!

Ive been running it for about the last 3 months or so. Primarily indoor high bite. Last month I was in michigan and ran it outdoors on clay/sand step pin tire track and it ran great! Im headed back to michigan this weekend to see my new grandbaby and im bringing it along to test on a few more tracks.
The stock bodys fit, but there is a gap on the sides, the chassis is about 1/2" narrower than stock. Hope to be pulling new narrow bodies next week for it.
The esc is the turnigy 120a turbo, was realy curious to see how well it worked for the price. Im pleasantly surprised at how well it works! Only drawbacks are its not roar approved and its big. Next week Im putting the lrp back in, only because ill be going to a few roar races.

@redo: Nice! Kinda reminds me of the Atsushi Hara setups i've seen. and of course like the C4.2 setup. When you have a kit ready let me know I might be interested.

@redo: if you are making custom bodies could I make molds that you could pull? I wanna make some stuff for my 410...and probably for my 210. What are you making your molds from? I think you are on the custom lexan forum too?

are those new v2 front arms worthwhile? Ive been trying to get a set for a good while now but they are backordered everywhere and for quite some time.
