Oh boy, finally a race-bred next gen 2wd SC truck. TLR had better hustle up and get a 22SC out ASAP or they're going to be left behind. I love the options on the 210 buggy, and as a SC will really be tempting. Oh my...

Don't think that's going to work.

Sidepods are shaped differently. Also, if you look at the front bulkhead screws, they aren't parallel; they "V" out slightly. No rear mounting points for the RM body mount/battery hold brace.

You would be better off taking a stock chassis and having it lengthened, then making the spacers for the front upper brace.

No release date as of yet.

Also, ball cups are designed to pop off in heavy collisions or hyper extended loads. If they didn't you would end up breaking other stuff; probably more expensive or back ordered stuff. If your cups are coming loose with light contact or small jumps, then you probably got a bad batch or your current cups are worn out. My kit cups were perfect but the rear inners started to get a little loose. I replaced them with the spare set and they were 100% perfect.

It does look production ready! My fingers are crossed for an early summer release. Maybe a little ambitious, but it sure looks like all the hard stuff is done

Looks like it uses the same wheels as the DESC410 which is great since we have a boatload of those wheels already. I'm stoked!

Good luck with the early summer release. The truggy will probably make it for summer, but I bet this does not come until xmas.

It appears that they are using hex front wheels. Are they eliminating the adjustable front axle position? If so, will this be a future option for the 210? These are questions enquiring minds wants to know.

Two questions. First why are the front shocks spaced so high off of the front arms? It looks like they could be dropped 1/2 inch or so from where they are in the pic.
Second why the big push for front hex wheels on buggys?

Cost & production reasons. Simple as that.
