I do think that a gear diff is not for dirt out door tracks, but more for high traction carpet indoor tracks.
On dirt you should always run a ball diff for the best feeling.
But Im lazy and I do not feel like setting and tunning a ball diff between heats, that is why I run a gear diff
With the B-Fast Ball Diff I went 2 month in between rebuilds, and in all actuality it really didnt even need it. They last forever, and if you build your ball diff correctly in the first place they will last a long long time.

have you ever seen factory drivers busy on a race day?
all they do all day long between heats is constantly rebuilding diffs for the best feeling and handeling they can get out of a ball diff.

So yeah when you run at the very top , a ball diff needs a lot work and rebuilding. but gives you the best control on dirt.

we club racers do not feel/notice those minor changes in handeling, after a race day with a ball diff.

Servo post: So with all the feedback I got I think the best thing for me to do is just spend a little more time at the track and talk to folks. See what they are using and maybe test some options.

Buggy Bag: Thanks for the feed back and I'll check into that bag that was posted

Foams: Question, can I run any of these on this buggy?

Has anyone tried moving the battery stop all the way to the front next to the servo and placing the shorty pack right up next to it?

Nice! What changes did you notice compared to the stock middle/front location?

Where did you get that CF battery holder? Clean and simple.

Do you recommend the Pro Driver's kit or just the Carbide balls from B-fast?

I am running RM4, so I was looking for a little more steering, but even in RM3 I had it near the front, with maybe a small pad in front. It give the car better balance, and weight transfer..The battery brace is a Diggity designs for the Losi 22, almost a direct bolt on..

How is parts support for Team Durango? I was thinking about trying a 210 but I hear a lot of people talking about parts being out of stock. Is it a good time to buy?

I was on the fence too, but noticed parts availablity has gotten a lot better.
Still there're certain parts that are hard to come-by; for example- rear hub.
