I replaced all of the ballcups with RPM longshank pieces and TC5 ballstuds. The rear inner is a straight piece.

jconcepts makes a "kinked" ballcup, I'm using those on the back with a standard ballstud

So far so good for ball cups on my end. I wish it popped off but instead I bent a rear axle landing awkwardly on it. They seem to be holding up pretty good.

I broke a kit ballcup during the build (must have overtightened), so I ordered the JC ballcups, and want to order ballstuds. Would anybody help and post partnumbers or links to the ballstuds to help with all the confusion of what works. Thanks in advance, and I'm loving this car so far

Thanks guys. I have yet to pop a cup on my DESC410R and I have a couple dozen race days on that one. 3 races on my 210 and 3 pops. So I'm thinking I'll throw on a set of the "standard" Durango cups. I think I might have to get a longer turnbuckle for the rear though.

Just a heads up. I ran out of the aluminum 3/3 toe blocks. I have more stock coming this week. The plan is to make some 1.5/3 blocks as well as more 3/3 blocks. These are direct bolt on made from billet 7075/T651 aluminum, superior material to 2024 or 6061. They are not anodized.
All orders placed were shipped the day of, or the day after I received payment.
Thanks to all that ordered

Here's another endorsement for Yeti's high-quality work. I've got the 3/3 block and it fits perfectly, looks sweet, and works great.

If anyone has a Losi 22 (like I was using until I got the 210), the ballstuds and ends work perfectly on the Durango. The Losi studs even fit the nuts on the front steering knuckle and, using a long ballcup end, will fit perfectly on the rear inner mount without having to use that funky kinked end.

Anybody else having some strange durability issues with their durango springs? Race #1... at 22.5mm ride height, my springs might be 4 or 5 turns down on the collars.... Race #3 or 4... collars might be half way down the shock body. Race number 7 or 8, and the collars are most of the way down towards the bottom... Nothing changing overall, just the spings breaking in... but man, the "break in" spans the entire length of the shock body.

Perfect! Front aluminum bulkhead. Ask and shall receive I guess. I don't like the stock one at all. Very soft compared to the rest of the composite parts.

Ive heard of one other guy having the same thing happen on his 410. Ours are good though. Are you sure you're not just picking up weight from all the mud on the track....?

Not me....I'm still running the "springs that arent right for the car" on my 210 and they are still on the same pre-load setting as the day I put mine together...which by the way is almost all the way down since I'm running the "rear springs that are too soft" And in case no can figure it out, I'm STILL running the kit light blue rear springs and my car is awesome....
