Nobody seemed to ask you what kind of track are you running on.

If it's high bite indoor clay, carpet, etc., I could see laying down your shocks as you have them, but if you are outdoors in dirt, that alone may be your problem.

I assume you are running the right tires and inserts popular at your track.

I would try the suggestions provided to you one at a time to see if your traction is improving. Me personally I would start by running your shocks middle/outside front, and middle/middle rear. Try that, then move to the next step. I was running my rear shocks middle/outside in the rear on an indoor clay track, and switched to middle/middle while driving in outdoor dirt. That alone improved my traction considerably.

One of the suggestions provided to you was to change your rear hub spacers. I run mine 3mm in front 1mm in the rear. Lengthens the wheelbase slightly and brings the weight closer to the tranny and rear axle. Also you have the rear toe listed as 4. Seems a bit much. I would run 3 unless 4 is needed for some reason.

Awe c'mon. I know how frustrating it is to find Durango parts sometimes, but to switch brands? I tried the 4.1 with the big bores and all the add ons, went back to Durango.

When I went back to Durango I pretty much accepted that I would need to keep a parts stash just in case. Nobody in AZ keeps any sort of reasonable stock. Some parts but not many. Lets hope parts supply improves.

Also I told another guy to contact Hobbico. I was having trouble finding parts so I emailed them and complained about the lack of parts. They sent me the parts I could not find free of charge.

I was also having trouble finding parts and I contacted Hobbico. They were fantastic- sent me some steering knuckle bushings at no charge.

The 3* toe block gives 3* toe in on each side... So using + 1.5* inserts in the hubs would give you 1.5* of toe in on each side of the car...

I've rarely seen any set up with a rear toe less than 2*, most of the time 3* will yield the best results. If you have the .5* inserts I would play with those to get either 3.5 or 2.5 degrees of toe in

I'm trying to purchase a setup station for my DEX210; most likely Integy. Can someone tell me what size "axles" it has? I need to make sure I purchase the correct one. Here are the choices:

Type-A adaptors are for vehicles with 6mm x M5-threaded axles such as the Traxxas Revo/T-Maxx 2.5/3.3, HPI E-Savage, and Losi LST1.
The Type-B adaptors are for the HPI Savage 2.5/4.6/X/XL which uses 8mm x M5-threaded axles with a reverse thread on one side.

Type C: 5mm x M4 threaded axles i.e. Stampede, Slash; Blitz, 1/10-scale TC/drift, etc. Part #C23130
Type D: 4mm x M3 threaded axles i.e. Associated RC18B/T; Losi Mini-T, Mini LST, etc. Part# C23131
Type E: 3/16 x 5-40 front and 3/16 x 8-32 rear axles i.e. Associated SC10, B4, T4, etc. Part #C23132
Type F: 3/16 x 10-32 threaded axles i.e. Losi XXX/XXX-T, MF2, Losi 1/10 truck, etc. Part #C23215
Type G: 6mm x M4 threaded axles i.e. Associated TC5/TC5R, etc. Part # C23216
Type H: 3/16 x 8-32 threaded axles (all four wheels), Part# C23268
Type J: For all Traxxas 1/16 i.e. E-Revo VXL, Slash 4x4 VXL, Rally VXL, etc. Part# C23344

I'm new to buggies. Picked up one of these for my local indoor carpet tracks. I'm running a tekin rs pro and a redline 10.5. Lol, how do I keep the front end down during acceleration? Besides reducing power

Digged this back from page 157!
Can someone verify if this is correct? Is this the correct size for both front and rear?
