I will be running a 9.5 motor with tekin rs in it, wondering what you guys suggest for a starting point in gearing on med - high bite clay. This is a whole new brand so i will have to learn how to tune this thing. If anyone has suggestions that may make a huge difference even something small, let me know. All help is appreciated!! Thank you guys!

With an 81 spur, you can fit a 30 pinion.
Edit: I ran that with a 13.5 and didn't overheat.

Any particular reason you are looking for ones from a different brand? There are 3 aluminium options for the DEX210 http://durangofansite.com/DEX210afte...t.html#rearhub

Id look at the manual for each car the hubs apply to and see what size bearings they are using. I suspect the size is standard, and as you know the 210 is metric.

I would definitely run a shorty, the cut weight is nice but being able to balance the car more is the key part.

Its a site I've been working on in my spare time, let me know if you want a different icon and if you get those chassis happening and I'll add it on there.

Nice reference site for us Durango enthusiasts. Appreciate your work.

Default CARPET QUESTION

Im running on a high bite very small and tight carpet track. Going to run MM4 and had a few questions on setup.

What springs would be good to have on hand?

What shock oil weights to try front and rear? (I'm going to be running GHEA delrin tapered 6x 1.2 pistons)

What wt gear diff fluid to run and or options?

Also I picked up the exotek MM RR block http://www.exotekracing.com/dex-desc...m-rr-5-degree/ What RF would be good to run in conjunction with it?

I race on a small tight carpet track and have been using Jorn as a base. It can be found here.

One thing that is not listed on the set up sheet but you can see in the pictures is the use of a 65 gram front bulk head.

This has been a very good starting point for the DEX210 on carpet.

Thanks for the heads up. I have a dimec20 and if I break the regular dimec I will switch to the thicker one. I want to try the more flexible chassis first to feel so I am holding off on using the stiffer one first.
