Minus:
1. Ball cup popped off 3 times, Right steering wheel side. and Left rear turnbuckle completey came off. And trust me I did not hit anything. There were a few people that were shocked.

2. Spur, was fighting some timing issues and gearing becuase there was a 87t spur in there. Anyone try associated yet? May mill one tomorrow.

3. Was dissipointed in the shock dampening, I am fairly new to 2wd buggy and just think that is was lazy for TD to not include a variety of pre drilled pistons.

4. This car is not going to be newb friendly. I work on my DEX410 alot and this car is going in the same direction.

5. Lack of setups out there. Thanks Randy for posting yours.

Plus:

1.) Durable. besides turnbuckles.

2.) drivetrain is #1 in my book. Diff is amazing.

3.) rear wheels are a plus. no more wobble

4.) stable and jumps like a champ

5.) alot of adjustmets can be made to this car and is definatly a tinkerers car.

My thoughts for now. I am just chasing a setup.
Did I miss it? Just checked Td's website and the last 4 four pages. Can you post a link please? Thanks....

Need quick help!

My steering is locking up. When I turn fully left or right, that side of the steering gets locked due to the angle of the steering rod. Did I do something wrong?

Usually that means the inner ballstud moves further rearward than the outer ballstud at full travel. You may have your C-hubs too far forward. Without a picture of the problem that's about all I can guess.

I can't see how I did anything wrong. It's only one way u can build the steering. Exactly how do I install the caster inserts? Which way does the numbers go?

I did notice on a pic before that it appeared you had the four spacers between the arm and the caster block split. Two in front and two in the rear. I think it's supposed to be four in the rear.

stock kickup is 25 deg so you need the +5 to the front to get 30deg

Sorry guys, did I miss the note on how to make these adjustments? Is there something on Durango site I don't know about?

My thoughts for now. I am just chasing a setup.
Billy Fischer has an indoor setup and an outdoor setup on the TD website. This is an A-Main at the Nationals caliber driver...

The front hub spacing must match the axle trailing or you can get some binding...

Can you elaborate? Sorry, I'm not familiar with these setups at all.
