Also check for worn/cupped outdrives.

Default Team Associate Gear Diff will work!

not sure if this was posted alrdy but im running a Team Associate gear diff in my 210 with no probs at all...only thing you need is about 2-2.15 millimeters of 10x12 shims on both sides of diff to center it up in the gearbox case and presto you have you gear diff...hope this helps ya if your sick of you ball diff
ps im running 2k diff fluid in mine and liking it
good luck

Just wanted to post a quick note about the Bugle Boy gear cover. The fit was awesome and it looks like it'll hold up a lot better than stock, but the lexan gets a bit thinner around the pinion side, so when I went to use a reamer to open the hole up, it punched right through and left a big ugly hole. If I were doing it again, I would use a pin vise, drill bit and some slow patient drilling on that hole. It looks like it'll hold for now, though I don't know for how long, the hole the reamer punched is larget than the screw head holding it on, but it didn't remove the material, just cut it up, so I am hoping it'll hold.

Thanks for the reply on that, to bad I already assembled the gear box before I seen the 2.15mm shimming. I have 1.8 on each side which allows alittle bit of slop. I'll probably up that when i take it apart again.

Is there any alternative shock seals I can use on my 210? Since I can't find any available that are meant for this car.
I have also been having problems with the layflat shaft bearing going bad. I replaced it with a bearing from my TC5 drive pully and it held up a little better. I have a new shaft on the way.

HRP started with Durango... then Great Planes buys em... cool 2 distributors... then yesterday get news that HRP got DUMPED.. just Like AXIAL... GREAT JOB GREAT PLANES...

Guess its GP's plane to eliminate any way of customers being able to actually GET PARTS

As a Shop owner i am Very concerned.. and as a RACER who runs a Durango Buggy I am VERY frustrated......

May be sending all my stuff back to GP if my Canceled BO from HRP dont get filled from GP

Default Please help.

I am about to buy my first 2wd buggy. I have been racing for many years in other classes both on road and off as well as nitro and electric. I really would prefer to not follow the crowd and get the usual B4.1 (although I am a strong AE fan) really don't want to get a 22( nice buggy, just hate the jump on the band wagon thing) and don't want to pay for extra for the K car. I stumbled across the Durango and it looks sweet!!!! And luckily enough my LHS has most of the replacement parts for it. I did talk to Duruango directly and was told that now that they are sold parts should be getting easier to get. So my real delema is will this buggy work on mid to low traction tracks also????? Or is this just better suited for high grip tracks?????? I like all the adjustability of the car, but doubt I will ever use or need the mid set up. Please help!!!!! I have found a good deal on a buggy but is a roller so I can not try at my local track.

I've heard from a few people that Kyosho seals work well. Haven't done it myself though.
