I have been looking at the tekin motors because I have heard good things. And as far as budget goes, I don't mind paying a little more if it will get me better results.

That's too bad. I guess that means we won't be seeing a new body any time soon.

I lucked out and have two new bodies. Too bad to hear there are no plans for a stadium truck. Its a fun class.

I'm thinking of getting a hitec 645mg for this truck. Does that sound like a good option?

My DEST kit came with type B parts. My buggy and SC are type A. Are the upgrades worth having one kit that doesn't share all the same parts? Additionally, does anyone know if replacements parts in the future might come in type B only? If so, it would be smarter to go with type B straight away.

You cars will run much better with all type b parts on them. Will also be more durable. Move to type b. Type a parts are already being phased out.

I just traded for a dest210r in excellent condition my main concern is bodies. Has anyone found a body from any other kit that will fit? I have seen it asked a few times but no answers yet. Has anyone compared any other bodies to the stock one? Anything that is close?

Where is a good place to start with gearing with a 17.5

It's a great truck, and with jorn's showing at Cactus this year, I think Durango may switch plans. Now just need his MM setup.
