- Track conditions went watered would cause front droop screw perches to pack and I would loose travel on the front suspension, do people do a mod here?
- WHERE ARE YOU GUYS FINDING the 25 Degree caster inserts? I have the right part # NIB but no "zero" insert to get 25 degree caster. was this a new running change?

I would like to keep running the exotek gear cover if possible so finding even smaller spurs would be great.

Here is what the track looks like I am running on for conditions (the video) and current layout (the picture):

current layout:

The spurs I run are reamed out AE and Jcon. Take the rear 0' insert and cut it down to get 25' in the front. I think Shuey spurs also fit without mods.

Other than Avid spurs, using the Exotek slipper eliminator is the other way to use smaller spurs.

Some people cut off the droop tabs and use limiters in their shocks to get around dirt altering droop.

The '0' inserts were a running change. Cutting down the rear hub inserts is an option if you have older stock. http://www.team-durango.com/blog/201...B0-caster-mod/

I have a step reamer and clamp them in mill or drill press after centering. The final hole is a 8.019mm.

Hey guys, I've seen some people running mid motor with a rear weight on the back of the tranny. I can't find these weights, do you guy know where to find and buy them?

Just decided to rebuild my buggy as mid motor

Normally if you want more power in stock class, try turning the endbell to somewhere near 25 to 30 degrees if you are running blinky. Or use a high torque rotor, which will allow you to gear even higher.

I never had the droop screw perch pack, but you can always use droop limiters inside the shocks instead and cut the ears off the front. try 2mm limiters inside the front shocks.

The insert is a running change and now comes with 0 inserts for the front.

Looking to get more speed out of my 210 with 17.5 (class rules at track) or any other tips for more speed? Thanks

Cheat... Oh wait, did I say that out loud?

When you say "get more speed", there are a few interpretations to this. First, are people blowing by you on the straights? If so, then you surely need more speed assuming they are also running a true "blinky" 17.5.

If you're saying your times are slow, then the setup of the car and your driving skills come into play.

Assuming it's the first situation, the only way you can get more speed is:

1) add more gearing. But if your motor is getting too hot (150-180F is what most people say is the limit), then you are over geared already. Also, even if your motor does not get too hot, gearing too much will lose you punch in tight tracks where there will be a lot of stop/go. So don't sacrifice speed through the corners for top speed in the straights.
2) get a better battery. In offroad 17.5 (doesn't matter much in onroad) you will want more punch out of the batteries. Thus, a higher C rating battery will do wonders.
3) lighten the car. This is assuming you are over the weight limit. Getting the car to the lowest weight allowable will get you the fastest possible top speed.

Other than the above, you'll need to work on your setups and driving to go "faster".
