I am getting a Durango but I'm a little nervous about all these adjustments because I don't know what they are or what they do especially in combination with one another.
Is there a good resource that explains what these terms mean...I know Durango doesn't have it I've already asked them.
THanks and sorry for so many questions. Have a great Thanksgiving
+1 something printable would be nice

We're working on various articles explaining the setups of our cars - and eventually general guides as time allows. The trailing axles were explained in our DEX210 insert guide article by the way.

Here is a picture of my DEX210 with CF shock towers. I will see how they hold up tomorrow night.



Sorry for the poor picture.

Exellent video and written guide as well!

Now I just gotta take the diff apart again to make sure everything is in its right place

looks like a pretty standard diff build other than the clip and the nonmatching thrust washers, I do understand everyones need if the manual that came with the car is as poor as the SC's was. I don't have a 210 yet.

Got my buggy in yesterday and got it put together, just need to pick up some tires from the LHS and get the body painted, I feel pretty confident in everything but my diff, but since they put up a nice video explaining it ill go back to make sure I did the thrust assembly correctly , shocks are the just as nice as Kyosho Velvet's IMO, went together nice and easy and feel awesome (gonna start w/ stock pistons w/ Losi 35 front Losi 30 rear) Ill be sure to get some pics up when its completely done

I'm sure this is old news. I used the older Durango ballcups that are a pita to work with because they are so tight. I grabbed a drill bit and reamed out the cups just a bit and now I can make adjustments without them popping off.

Anyone wanna show me what's in bag A? or a list of the parts? I may be missing it altogether. The manual is pretty horrendous. Great pix for sure, but the rest has a lot to be desired. Thanks if anyone has this. .
