Ah, in that case, the picture below shows associated hubs, axles and shafts so these two should fit. Would have to look at what size bearings they use.http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...arriers-Silver or http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...arriers-Silver

selfmade 2mm thick carbon rear skidplate for the dimec chassis.
should protect the rear enough.

Id be interested to know what springs he is using. I have mine cranked almost all the way down in the rear just to get ride height. His appear longer.

Looking at some of the other pictures he be switched back to the stock plastic tower for the race heats. The shock collar is farther down with this one. Maybe the carbon fiber one he ran in practice is shorter than the stock one?

Most off Jorn's dirt RM3 setups use dark blue rear springs.

I've been racing all year having good luck with a B4. Last night I ran my mid motor Durango for the first time. It would fly through the air and have a tendency to tilt left or right in the air making it very challenging to land flat. Is there anything setup or drive train related that would cause this.

Hmm... that's very odd. I haven't had that issue. But I'm running gear diff. You might consider tightening your ball diff to see what happens. I also arranged my electronics such that the car is perfectly balanced right/left.

Could be a couple things. Lateral balance (side to side) may be off. Make sure both sides have equal weight distribution. Also, if you go up a take-off at an angle or turn right before the jump, you will flap like a duck. I'm not sure what else could do it.

I was thinking possibly the truck springs myself?

I was running a gear diff with 1000k. It was the first time running a gear diff in 1/10 scale. I thought possibly the light weight oil in the diff could be causing this on the face of the jumps. The track is consistent being that it is a carpet surface.

The 1000k wont do that. I run 2000K in mine on carpet. I have had as low as 70wt shock oil in my 22 and never had that happen.

Just finished this mod on my DESC210, and gonna do the buggy next.

I couldn't get away to race today, so I finished a project I started earlier this week. Bunch of pictures to help anyone interested in mounting their electronics inline without using the battery tray.
I noticed last weekend my chassis had a small split, so I used it as the esc platform material.



20mm screws with some faux carbon fiber and HB ballstud washers.





Update, got the carbon fiber and milled aluminum stand-offs. 7grams.
