Best of luck narrowing it down but think with all the pointers that have been given one of these should resolve it.
it was the mesh bad spur , it seemed like it had a spring in it that would bounce it whenever it was on the pinion but the mesh was making it skip teeth

Well guys it's hurry up and wait til tomorrow night for my brother to come down and practice with the cars. I finished the standard cf chassis last night, and also installed the new TD alum rear hubs (very nice parts) on both cars. Fresh B Fasts in both too. Thing is, they look so nice all fresh and clean that I'm not sure they should even be driven....

The wait is almost over, and I for one can't wait to see how they perform.

I would get the under carriage from RCShox. U have to buy the entire body setup though. With the front of the chassis being a little longer not 100% sure if it would work or not.

New to team durango. Got a used but in great condition dex210.
Couple questions.
Any tips on removing shock caps or taking shocks apart withou scratching the bodies all up. Any special shock tools I might be missing. I know some kits come with plastic shock wrenches for working on your shocks.

Also gonna be running stock buggy (17.5t) and it has a reamed out 75t Ae spur on it right now.
Any suggestions on where to start with pinion??
Thanks for the help guys. So far love wrenching on this thing. Very well thought out buggy with top notch parts and fit and finish is awesome as well!!!

This is my current setup, medium sized indoor track with medium traction. Tried losi 45 in my gear diff today which is very close to 650 cst and absolutely hated it. Will be going back to losi 80 which is around 1000 cst.

For your 17.5 with a 75 spur I'd say somewhere around 32 maybe. I run 34 which is the largest that fits in between the motor screws but am using a 69 spur.

I am running 17.5 and started out at a 72 spur with 30 pinion. Track i run on is roughly 100 x 50. Coming from a TLR 22 all I can say is I wont go back to it. Love the way the car drives.

when you go thicker in diff oil, you will hate it more.

lower grip means thinner diff oil, higher grip mean thicker diff oil

Wish the undertray was available alone, the kid really likes the JC body. Chassis tape will have to do for now.

We ran 75/35 with a Revtech and HT rotor. Have to use button heads rather than socket heads to secure the motor. For the shocks we have the Integy shock pliers and they work great for holding the bodies and shafts as well.
