$10.00 in this hobby is a drop in the bucket.

You can get the HPI gun metal ones for $6..and seriously if it takes you any longer to use those than the Velcro you have issues..

It's fate!!! I don't recall what rear shock tower your running but the new aluminum mounts don't exactly fit with the stock plastic tower. I had to remove some material for them to fit flush. If you are running the stock tower look at the indents from putting the new mounts on. Then you will see exactly where to remove the material from....then you will have just as much room.

I got a pair of these tamiya battery posts on one of my 210s. Then a little single sided sticky foam to stop sliding. They work great even tho they are with clips

Or search tamiya battery post on Google and you can see my 210 with the HP screws

I can put two thumb screws on in less than 15 secs... I have two hands... and do both at the same time. Velcro or thumb screws... who really cares?!?

Default dex210

Hey guys just put a couple NIB dex210 kits in the for sale section at a blowout price of 200.00 shipped for each kit. Unbeatable price. Always nice to have a backup ride or a parts car.

i called them on this a few weeks ago, pissing me off wearing out one outdrive.

and guess what? i was told from two different people at great planes that they had never heard of this. one went and asked their durango "expert" and he had never heard of it either.

so please call them, they will send you new outdrives if you are persistent about it. they have sent me 3 sets total, 1 the first time for my sc truck, 2 the second time for my buggy, buggy is one its third set in 3 months of use.

but i have a two of the new sets of long ones that are doing the same, wearing out just the left side, so it seams that the problem is still there.

This is a known issue and it has been resolved. Contact [email protected] and include some pics of the outdrives with your email. They will take car of you.

For the guy asking for a replacement thrust, I used this for a little bit. Drops right in. Also, the Losi HD thrust bearing is nice. One of the plates is slightly thicker than the stock TD plates, and it fits more snug with the c-clip is installed.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...g-w-SiNi-Balls

Granted, the stock thrust, and basically the whole diff, is the best I've ever built in my 20 years of racing RC cars. It's simply the best designed ball diff out, period. I ran the stock diff parts for a very long time, original kit actually, and the only reason I ever rebuilt the diff is because I loosened it up too much and barked the balls.

actually i used the usa email address as listed on the durango site and called hobbico but they act like they don't know anything. as i said this was just a few weeks ago and the usa support guys say nope no problem with them, hopefully they get it now.

but still they will send you ones that will go bad real fast again. at least they will send the longer ones.

hopefully someone has cleared this up between the eu and usa support crew.
