Can I ask why the switch to Schumacher Shocks and rear tower? I dig the creativity on the rear tower just interested in what you gained from it?

Spacing that rear tower backwards was perfect. You want the shocks perpendicular to the arms.

Laker67: To be honest I didn't even know is was Schumacher shocks and tower. I bought it used and I just add a few bits and bobs to it. I am not planning on using it for anything but light bashing. I am thinking about switching the 6.5T motor and ESC with a Tekin Redline Gen1 10.5T and a RSX ESC. But I have not decided yet.
I have had it out for a spin a few times and to me it looks to go pretty fast as it is. But I fear if I leave it as it is the ESC will burn up. Changing the gearing is of course an option. But for now I just leave it as it is.

Just check your temps. If the esc and motor work the. Don't worry about it. It seems a lot cheaper to change your gearing then going out and dropping a ton of cash on a new system.

Anyone know if Durango was at round 4 of the EOS this past weekend? I've been bombarded with reports from Associated but nothing from Durango. Just curious if they had any racers there and, if so, how well they did.

Looks like the type B rear arms are back in stock at Tower. They're currently in the process of filling my backorder. Now if they'd just get in the 3mm standard locknuts I ordered months ago...

Nice Work, did you notice any performance changes by cutting up the side pods?

Hi!

Iīm building up my thrid Team Durango Car and it is the Dex210V3.
Getting the first trouble.
I want to use the 14mm rims in front because I have a lot of wheel setīs with 14mm rims. If I put the 14mm hex on the axel and then the rim on it there is only 1-2 threads left for the wheel nut???

What am I donig wrong?

Regards Norbert

Do you mean the 12mm hexes? Those go on the front.

I believe the 14mm fronts are for 4wd. Kremzeek is right. 12mm for the front. If you are putting the hex on the stock bearing shaft it won't work. Need more info to really answer your question.
