I love durango stuff but if I cant even go to the track and buy a set of wheels thats not going to work for me.





Never been run and built by someone with 20 years experience. Rear motor 3 gear. Box, man and all other parts included.

Would be perfect for someone who hates building and hates painting

$275.00
ya dude, just in case you need that emergency set of durango wheels. right before the A main. lol..

Wheels are like 5 bucks online man up and buy a bunch. Then you won't have to worry.

How long are you guys going between ball diff rebuilds? I have had the same diff since i built the car 2 months ago. Granted i only drive once a week, but it still feels buttery smooth. I keep thinking its going to get notchy from the dirt tracks, but its not happening. I havent touched it or adjusted it at all.

I have ran 20 packs now of a brand new balldiff, lets say 20 x 7 minutes. and the balldiff still feels smooth. i think I can go 25 or 30 packs befor rebuild is needed.

this is on hardpacked dirt with a boosted 8.5T

indeed... most setup sheets don't have droop info though (blank field), or when they do they don't tell you how (where do you measure, ...)

Cheers anyway

Default front hubs

Cansomeone tell me what the stock setup is on the inserts uh I can't read the numbers?? You would think they would make it clear for a base setup this is my first kit and I absolutely have a blast building it . Thanks guys

This is a great article explaining all inserts and how they work:

Most people run front hubs with the +5 to give 30 degrees caster all up.

Default +8 chassis

I just put my dimec +8 chassis on my MM4 car last night and tested it at OCRC(indoor clay). As with the 8-racing +8 chassis, I found the car really likes the extra length on the chassis. It seems to be a bit better with the plastic chassis over the CF one, as I expected. I think the flex in the chassis is a good thing if I can avoid breaking it...LOL Anyway, if any of you are running MM on indoor clay, I think it is a good investment.

FYI,
You need the new +8 TD body with it(if you want it to look right) as they have changed the sidepods and the old bodies don't mate up to it quite right.

Default DIMEC +8mm RM3 update

DIMEC +8mm RM3 update. So, I kept the same setup as my original car with the addition of the +8mm DIMEC chassis and also a 30g exotek weight. I will say that the car has LIFE!!! The reduction in weight and added flex gives this car a ton more steering and also makes it feel nimble... I am racing at the Spektrum and the track is losing grip heat after heat, so my first round was a dud and the second round I made a tire switch and the car is back to feeling like it was in practice. I will hopefulkly have some video posted tomorrow.

If you are planning on running med / low bite tracks, I HIGHLY suggest you get this setup. If you are running high bite, get the DIMEC20, I am also curiois to see the DIMEC and DIMEC20 back to back

I ran mine tonight with the +8 standard flex, it felt good, I was a little off the pace, but the car feels good, like it can be pushed a little more..

Thanks!

Default carpet mid motor (what chassis?)

Hey guys

I know a lot of you guys dont run on carpet. In Canada this the only choice we have in the winter.

Carpet off road has tons of traction and its always warm inside so what chassis do you think is better?

I was thinking the stiffer DIMEC20 over the DIMEC. Heavier is better in most cases on carpet in less the track is really small. But the stiff chassis would respond better right?

What do you guys think?

thanks
