  • Quote: can someone please help me here, did a bunch of searching of the thread today and came up with nothing other than that I should have gobs of steering. I don't, I read that 4 gear might be my issue, but just cracked the tranny open, 3.
    try adding internal limiters in the shock especially on the rear. ? Carpet offroad is not my thing. I would look on Oople to find a fast carpet setup.

    Thanks for the reply, but I don't think that is the issue either. I don't limit any of my other buggies. The problem is I am pushing like crazy on and off power. Thought I was supposed to have tons of steering? My RB5 and B4.1 both have too much steering.
  • Ok guys I figured out my problem with the diff. It appeared to me that the hole in the plastic nut was big enough for the screw to come through, I was wrong. I recommend before building the diff hold the nut with pliers or a vice, something that wont mar up the nut too bad and thread the diff screw completely through once. I thought the spring was totally compressed because the screw was totally stopping. But thats not what happens, the screw hits the super tight plastic "which is good" but makes you think your spring bottomed out. So after cleaning up the threads once and a rebuild the diff tightened up properly and came out super super nice! I wound up with the ears 1.75mm from the end of the slot in the outdrive which is great! With a little more break in it will come over even a little bit more.

    Thanks Guys

    not many people in the states run on carpet, but I would start with MM3 and tune from there as that setup should have the most steering

    Carpet shouldn't be a factor here. All I am asking is a basic way to get rid of push.

    What caster are you running up front. It's very easy to have the wrong inserts in.

    I don't know. What should I be looking for? I just got the car and am a total n00b.

    If you cut the 0 inserts its 25 degrees. Here's a link. Take a look at the insert and caster section. Hope this helps. http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...ngoDEX210.html

    Might have to wait a few weeks until people actually start using them...since they're still new and all. Is that fair??

    Didn't know they were new! Sounds fair to me...

    I'm trying to find some specs on the steering servo. The motor/ESC combo looks good.

    carpet is a factor here, that's what you're running on. Durango recommends running mid motor when running on carpet or astroturf because that configuration generates more steering. A rear motor car generates too much rear traction for carpet
