Fred, have you tried the RDRP front steering rack. It drops the front ball studs down a few millimeters. Has helped me eliminated bump steer.

DER-BB-LRW DE Racing Borrego Buggy Wheels TLR 22/AE B4 Rear White

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXDEXW&P=7

That sound about right?

As for the front, I am not sure what works. I want the same style of wheel, and I see one type listed for the RB5/B4 and another listed for the TL22. Which of these works?

I am also looking at getting the exotek 12mm front hex setup here:

http://www.exotekracing.com/dex210-1...-axles-1-pair/

or, I am thinking this:

ASC91406 B5 Hexes

any opinions on these? I am assuming they work the same for fitment, thats the main thing I am wondering.


Lastly, with the current TD330382 steering set being very hard to fine, I was thinking of getting this from exotek:

http://www.exotekracing.com/desc210-...steering-hubs/

any opinions on that?
I went with the B5 front axels. I did go with the -1 mm width ones. I think the standard ones will work better. Had to shim my front steering knuckle forward to keep from rubbing on the front of the AArm.
I am using front and rear DE racing B5 rims which I think are similar to the B4.

I have the Exotek set. I need 6mm of outer shims to eliminate bump steer. Unfortunately spacing it that much introduces flex in the steering hub. Now I'll probably end up adding the Exotek aluminum hubs too.

just having a good ol time finding the steering hub .

what wheels are you using by the way up front?
Typical Exotek craftsmanship and lightweight. I can't say about B5 axles as I have Lundsford titanium which are around the same price. My wheels slide on so nice compared to the stock plastic setup. I feel this is where Durango misses the boat. They design a nice car but then skimp on the hex setup with plastic and crappy ones at that.

cool! yeah, they could go alloy for sure there, though, they probably then would need to pick a wheel standard I guess for the hex.

Are these the ones you are using for b5 wheels?

Rear
DER-SB-ARW 1/10 Speedline Wheel (AE B4.2/B44.2/B44.3/B5/B5M/Losi 22/22 2.0/22-4) - (rear) - WHITE

Fronts
DER-SB-AFW DE Racing 12mm Hex "Speedline" 2.2 1/10 Buggy Front Wheels(2) (B5/RB6) (White)

I messaged exotek about exotek part # 1294 steering hub that was designed for the desc210 and here is their response:

Quote:
... The hub arm are about 4mm higher ( to correct the bump steer) so they may interfere with the inner wheel- just a guess as they are very close to hitting the SC wheel already.
Any thoughts on this? I am tempted on buying it, but its not a cheap option so would hate to have an expensive paperweight sitting here.

I decided to go with the B5 axles for now, found a place selling some for a $1 + shipping so I picked up 2 pairs for about the price of one after the shipping cost.

Yes I run both the Speedline ones you posted and also the 2.2 Borrego from DE racing. Not sure about the steering hub as on my stock ones I just have 2ea 2mm alum spacers like JP and Travis are using on my stock plastic hubs. No bump steer problems and no flexing problems so I didn't look at alum. steering knuckles. Only thing left I might change sometime is going to the Durango rear alum hubs but that is it. Pretty happy with the rest of my car at this time. I think my new springs will be in today to try or at least I hope and want to try a new rear camber position on the rear to the inner hole on the tranny case.

Those are the ones. I normally run the black or green rims.

good stuff thanks!

so what is everyone's take on the 60mm wheel deal or 2.4" Plus as DE calls them?

I have to say, if I setup the other dex210 as the loner, may get it pink wheels lol.

I also picked up the mid motor bulkhead from exotek. looking forward to trying it out.

I bought this Dex210 used here on RCtech, I'm sure the seller will get back to me on this, I sent him a pm but I'm dying to figure this out tonite.

Does anyone know exactly what type of diff(Slipper) this is by looking at these 2 photos?
I ask because it slips really bad, I tried to drive it in the driveway tonite, I had to tighten the adjusting nut all the way til it stopped and it still slips like crazy.
Any suggestions on getting this thing to hook and book on concrete and pop some wheelies?
Thanks!

Are you referring to the diff or slipper?
If the diff is slipping, most likely the circlip has come out of its groove.
If it's the slipper, you may need to shim it a bit http://durangofansite.com/main.php?v..._Layshaft_Play

Sorry, it's probably the slipper. Where would the shims go? I'm new to this. Thanks.

I removed the slipper assembly, the lay shaft spins easily by hand and it seems to have zero play when trying to push/pull it.
I'm confused as to why this slipper won't grab.

Default parts availability

Hi Guys,

Do you know what online shops are stocking all of the V3 upgrade parts? I have always used Amain but they don't have them in stock. maybe some in the UK?

Thanks
