I agree the car seems to pivot a little slower overall, so it feels a bit more stable. Less likely to spin out.
Yea i guessed i didnt say exactly what i was thinking right lol wheelbase doesn't lengthen or shorten it just moves the shocks past the rear which would make the car look longer.

Hi Guys,

Besides Amain.com, where else online do you buy your spares and hopups? I'm looking at some hopups but the shipping is really a killer on most online websites.

yeah, AMain, Tower, and Ebay. Amain and Tower have great coupons and discounts if you do some searching around. Tower also has specials for club members and Amain does a points thing.

I often find team durango parts cheap on ebay, but many (maybe most) parts amain, tower, or ebay have pretty much the same prices.

I am pretty sure I've purchased through Absolute on Ebay. Never interacted with them but the parts always show up quickly as far as I can remember.

Default have I built my ball diff incorrectly

I finally finished building my dex210v2 and fired it up for a test run, but it looks like I am getting to much slip I tightened the slipper clutch up all the way and still could not get the front wheels to raise off the ground when holding the rear wheels what have I done wrong?

Are there any slipping sounds while you are doing it? What motor size are you running?

I had the same problem with mine, maybe I used too much grease. Either way I dumped mine and bought a gear diff instead. Problem solved.

Are you running a ball diff and is it too loose?

if not the ball diff, check to see if the slipper pads are seated all the way down on the spur gears. I noticed that if mine wasn't perfectly seated it would cause issues. Went to garolite discs and it works much better for adjustment.

I want one of these to add to my Durango fleet. Thinking about buying one. Anything I need to know? I have the 2wd short course, so am familiar with durango's basic chassis.
