I use Lunsford Punishers with Losi ball cups and ball studs. I broke a rear arm into 3 parts and the turnbuckles didn't bend and a cup didn't pop off.

I've got too many projects. I think I need to convince Chris that Durango needs a dirt oval car!
There is a company called Plan B R/C that makes a chassis for the DEX for dirt oval.

I just bought the dex210 conversion from him. Have not run the car yet but it is good quality material and fit and finish. One thing that is lacking though is having to unscrew 4 screws to get the battery out. Definitely not quick change but its not bad enough for me to be a deal breaker. I like how the battery mounts across the chassis. Hoping that this will give the rear more grip. Performance always outweighs convenience for me.

My wife has a DEX210v1 and she keeps breaking the head off one of the rear droop screws. I don't have this problem on any of my Durango trucks so I'm a bit stumped. Thoughts?

Get a new wife who can drive?...

Sorry, I couldn't resist... I'm just jealous that your wife actually shares the hobby with you. But how the hell does she break the rear droop screws is a big mystery to me. I don't even see how anything could come into contact with that!

Interesting, maybe use a normal set screw?

lol.. yeah, new wife isn't an option. We drive on an indoor carpet track which is pretty hard on cars but I have no idea it happens.

trying to remember the location of the rear droop screws, could she be banging it up against something on uptravel of the suspension arm? Maybe and odd flex somewhere?

if it's enough of a problem, use internal droop limiters and stop using the screws.

Can you be more specific with your settings? Or list them out.
Kinda hard to diagnose the issue without more info.
What surface, shorty or full pack. Temp of the track.
Yes harder springs and droop where mentioned, someone mentioned front tires. but it could be the diff, shock oil, roll centers, etc.

50deg medium to low traction indoor clay track, using gold barcodes all away around. MM4 gear diff with 3,000 oil. Shorty pack all the way forward. Front and rear shock oils at 30wt, i have to check my infor on pistons and springs but i think its box stock. 1.5 anti squat, right now im not running the droop screws because i just got the car, not really sure how to adjust them to do what
