Shipping is only $3.67 for me. Contact the seller and see if you can work something out.

Another important thing about kick up is that if the chassis rolls the same front and rear (roll distribution 50-50) is that the front suspension is moving in a plane tilted around 25* from the rear suspension. Not only does that cause wheelbase changes during roll/heave but also adds unneeded complexity.

Default Spur

Anyone know where I can source 210 Spurs? I need one smaller than 78, as I am running the biggest pinion that fits currently.

If I recall Associated B4 Spurs can fit if you widen the centre hole? Can anyone confirm that? I thought I read it on the fan site but could not confirm it.

Just for a side note, that is not a just problem at td, my schumacher k2 does have the same problem front and rear, 0 upravel there too!
Micholix,
You are right. The V2 has more rear uptravel than the 210F. Eyeballing it, With both fully compressed the V2 looks to have 2.5-3mm shock shaft exposed and the F about 1.5mm.

On a good note, with the b44 tower installed in the front, the uptravel is the same with the flat arms as it is with standard tower and gull wings.

The schumacher spurs are a direct fit for the slipper.

You can widen the hole but heard its difficult. Look at revolution design spurs, think they carry a 72. Schumacher spur 71. Both cheaper than Durango and both machined.

Ya, might hold out for Amain to stock it, they do $1.99 shipping to Hong Kong on small parts like this. Thinking the Dex210 is going to be retired and become a display/collection car any way as it looks like Durango are going out of business

Hi fred, you mentioned that you run your shocks in emulsion style, what diafragma do you use in the td shocks?
Does the destc410 one fit at the buggy shocks?
When you run the shocks in emulsion style, do you use the screw in the cap, or without?

PS.: did you get my pm?

Thx in advance

I do not run emulsion style. I run bladders. I use the Losi bladders. The ONLY way that anyone should ever run a bladder is with the bleeder screw in. Never run open bladder.

I had a thought that we might not need to worry about suspension up travel if we do one mod. Look at the new cars like the 22 3.0 and the B6. They have new hubs and caster blocks that can mount the hinge pin lower down. This puts your chassis lower to the ground per the same suspension arm orientation and the wheels higher up by comparison. If we run the B6 rear hubs and front caster blocks/steering hubs, it should not only be better setup for high grip tracks since the cg lowers down, but will also effectively offset the suspension up travel woes. I bought some B6 rear hubs to try.

don't think durango is going out of business, just appears they are focusing on RTR cars under their ARRMA line up. seems alot fo companies are re-evaluating their businesses along with profits or losses in maintaining a racing presence, professional kit type cars, teams, etc.

in the new serpent 4wd car thread, there is some talk that the car is durango or designed by one of their designers

One of Durango's ex designers is a designer for serpent now.

Can't wait to hear what you find out.
