Anyone happen to have a link to some good starting setups for the dex210 on a large track with medium traction. I keep tring to view the ones on the durango site from the team drivers but for some reason my computer freezes up mid download on them repeatedly and I can't view them. Also what is the transmission ratio, looking for a good starting spur gear for 17.5 on a track with a 140ft straight but some technical as well.

Thanks guys. Been so long since I ran carpet. The local club didn't allow pins back in the day so I used to run foams on my Losi JRX2. I guess I just dated myself there.

87tooth spur, you will want a 69 or a 72 for 17.5. Springs are dark blue 3.50 lb/in, light blue 1.85 lb/in.

Thanks guys, saw the parts after I looked back on petit , looks like I have the option of 75 or 69 spur from amain. Fellow racer runs 69/34 on his associated so I'll probably go the 69 spur route and gear the pinion a little more conservatively than his b4.1 and check temps.

I run 69/34 with a SP 17.5MMM which works well most places. I think the smallest pinion you'll be able to mesh with the 69 spur is a 30 tooth from memory.

Local hobby shop owner told me that the Durango distributor (great planes?) raised prices to retail outlets 20%, But expects shops to not raise their prices. So basically they are expecting the local shop owners to eat the difference. No wonder no one stocks Durango around here.

Yup this actually happened a while ago. Shops were supposed to raise their prices on their Durango stock too, so profit margins would stay the same. They want to become a premium brand like say kyosho. The problem is Durango doesn't exactly have a name for itself among the rest of the rc community to pull that off. So unless Durango stuff is popular at your LHS, its bad business to even stock it. Larger initial investment to sit on hoping it sells, makes for risky business. Also what they didn't tell you was Great Planes is trying really hard to get LHS to carry Durango stuff, deals like extremely cheap kits for stores to try and gain some popularity. There logic is seriously flawed though in how there going about it I think.

the prices went up so they can do more development and offer us better cars, I can't complain, especially if the local store stocks everything for them.

If your local shop carries Durango parts you are a lucky guy. I once ran into a guy at a track in Tucson, AZ, that had BOXES of Durango parts he had stocked up on just in case. If it were not for that guy i would have been done for the weekend. I have since become that guy. I have 2 and 3 of just about everything.

Hi Sean,

No, I have never seen anyone 1/10 or 1/8 scale buggies running foams. Only the car guys are running foams on the on-road track in the back. If you're 'local' to Universal I wouldn't bother ordering Schumacher tires/inserts online; Universal carries Mini Pin Yellow rears and Cut Stagger Yellow fronts (and Mini Pin Yellow 4WD front). Save on the shipping charges (unless you want other compounds then you'll have to order online)...

Neil

Some may find this useful, some may think it's just re-posted data and some may find mistakes, but here's my latest big bore spring comparison chart...
