The guys over at Revolution Design Racing Products (RDRP) just announced a new line of high performance upgrades for the Team Durango DEX210 2wd off-road buggy. The new parts include aluminum front and rear shock towers designed to be a direct replacement for the kit’s stock plastic pieces, a new aluminum steering rack that adds considerable strength to the DEX210’s steering assembly and finally a brass rear suspension mount which adds 30g of weight to the rear of the buggy for better weight distribution. While these parts were designed specifically for the DEX210, RDRP notes that the brass suspension mount can also be used on Team Durango’s DESC short course truck and DEST stadium truck as well!
RDRP DEX210 Aluminum Front Shock Tower
The RDRP DEX210 Aluminium Front Shock Tower is designed to replace the stock plastic shock stay with a cooler looking and more rigid solution. CNC-machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and anodised for a more durable finish the RDRP Front Shock Tower does not break as the kit’s plastic tower and also makes for a more solid and therefore precise base for the shock absorbers. Additionally the inner camber link mounts are more rigid doing away with stripped mounting holes and the change of a DNF after a crash.
RDRP DEX210 Aluminum Rear Shock Tower
The RDRP DEX210 Aluminium Rear Shock Tower is designed to replace the stock plastic shock stay with a cooler looking and more rigid solution. CNC-machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and anodised for a more durable finish the RDRP Rear Shock Tower does not break as the kit’s plastic tower and also makes for a more solid and therefore precise base for the shock absorbers.
RDRP DEX210 Aluminum Steering Rack
The RDRP DEX210 Aluminium Steering plate replaces the kit’s plastic steering plate with a stronger solution for added rigidity and better looks. The CNC-machined 7075-T6 aluminium part considerably strengthens the steering assembly for less slop, a more precise steering reaction and less flex, resulting in a rock solid steering feeling and more durability in the event of a crash. The RDRP DEX210 Aluminium Steering Plate comes anodised and laser-etched.
RDRP DEX210 Brass Rear Suspension Mount
The RDRP DEX210 Brass RF Suspension Mount 3/3 is designed to replace the stock RF 0/3 degree plastic suspension mount with a more rigid and heavier solution. Depending on the motor configuration, battery pack used and also track conditions it can be necessary to add further weight to the rear of the buggy to achieve that perfect weight distribution. Using the RDRP Brass RF Suspension Mount 3/3 gives the rear wishbones an anti-squat of 0 degree and a toe-in of 3 degree and adds 30g of weight to the very end of the buggy which can be an advantage when running the vehicle in mid motor configuration on lower traction surfaces or very bumpy tracks. The block is a drop-fit solution, is easily mounted using the original chassis location holes, is CNC-machined from brass and comes laser-etched for easy identification.
