whats the deal with the slipper? I have it tightened all the way down and its still slipping. I sanded the pads because they had glazed after ONE DAY of running. Are there any other pads that will work or am I doing something wrong?

Is this NORMAL or did my kit come with short ones? Tip to tip, mine is 105mm.

Also, one of the driveshafts is actually slightly bent. The car hasn't even left my desk yet. So now I have to take it apart and straighten that driveshaft?

p.s. - I like how the hole guides on the wing doesn't match the wing mounts as they are mounted on the car...nice...NOT! Experience taught me to check in advance. I pity the beginner/semi-intermediate builder who will have to buy a new wing if they drilled using the the hole guides.
Add some droop
I have a few years of experience and do airbrush but still I missed measuring the wing LOL looks really bad with 3 holes and not centered....

Your spacer on the layshaft may have been crushed a bit, some people have had issues. Fixes are using a nitro clutch spacer like this http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...perSpacerWear/ or buying the updated spacer LAYSHAFT SPACER (1PC) Part No: TD310243

Do it!!!!!!

I was a durango fan, built the 410 v3.. The 6 is at least the best quality 1/10 ever seen, it may not be prefect but pretty close to heaven on earth

Take the diff completely apart and rebuild it per the team Durango YouTube video. Wondering if you put thrust washers in backwards or something and diff never built right. I had that problem building the desc210r diff and could not get the t nut to ever really bite or tighten to well.

Some people have not had problems with the ball cups, good for you. But when they constantly pop off during a race, or cause problems for dozens of other drivers this is an issue. Boiling them, or sticking a wrench into them to hold them in place while adjusting, boring out holes, greasing the turnbuckles... All this special treatment is really ridiculous.

I have never experienced this with other brands. I ended up using tc6 ti-nitrate 10mm long ball studs in all positions except the steering, where i used 8mm long. I used jconcepts ends with the stock turnbuckles. No issues since.

The jconcepts kit also comes with longer angled caps that work perfectly for the rear, enabling you to continue to use the stock rear turnbuckles (which are shorter).

Correction to my previous post. I used tc6 5mm long studs in the rear hubs.

I've never experienced any kind of performance issues with my gear diff. Finding the right oil weight for your track and driving style is definitely key though. To me ease of use, longer outdrives, cheaper to maintain, are all reason I choose to run one instead of a ball diff.

Its personal preference, but IMO the ball diff when built correctly, lasts seemingly forever, that I haven't even thought about trying it in this car..(I have tried it in other cars). It may be worth trying though, others have said that it suits their driving style a little better.
