front hubs:# 10 caster insert all the way back with #4 trailing on the axle. with stock manual shimming.

rear hubs: # 0 insert which gives you 3 degree toe

rear kickup 1.5 degrees

rear 3 gear setup

87/25 gearing with 8.5 motor

Hope this helps some
the car comes with droop screws. why limiters?

Yep.. no need for internal limiters at all with external droop screws. By using limters, you are removing one of thee most beneficial features of this car... droop setting changes on the fly without having to rebuild your shocks.

Just finished the build- just waiting for Pauly at Nut Shellz to finish the body. Built it with the kit settings but realized I'm low on shock oil so had to do 450cst front and 400 cst rear. I also went with the old DEX410 style spacer/pin setup for the rear drive as we have a whole box full of tires to use until I get motivated enough to cut them off and re-mount them on new style wheels for both buggies.

Here's a few pics with the body off:






Used tires, servo and esc for now, but a new Savox and Tresrey esc are in the works with the new SP 8.5. Unofficial street shakedown felt good, but didn't really say much other than it goes straight, is plenty fast and the drivetrain runs smooth and quiet. Now to wait another week for Cush's first run with it!

I haven't checked the offset yet because the bearing size is different- metric vs. sae. I cut off one set last week to get ready for the buggy and just glued up one set of fronts. Was going to buy some extra fronts from the lhs but they only received rears in their first shipment. Looks like I have to place an order through Durango this week.

Durango,

Any plans for additional spur gears such as 81t or 78t?

hey guys, i am #11 at amain. However, i found a kit else where. If someone still needs one, i can order for you from amain with a $40 process fee. you will have to pay shipping as well! also no, i will have to pay tax as i live in CA.

dex210 + shipping + tax + $40...

I was wondering the same thing. With the 22 we ran 76/23 so to get the same fdr with the different internal ratio i needed 87/28 which does not fit. Went with a 26 and will just add boost as needed.
