New to RC here.....

I have a DEX210 and the guy at the local RC shop told me to buy some TD701001 Droop Screws.

My issue is I forgot what he said to do with them lol.

He mentioned about the rear sagging or something.
Any help would be appreciated.

Step 11 of the manual, if you're not sure where they go. One in each arm.http://www.team-durango.com/pdf/manu...n%20Manual.pdf

They are used to limit how far down the arm will travel.

I would recommend the internal shock limiters found on this part tree vs droop screws. There's 4, each 2mm. The front especially need them in my opinion. But I don't run them in the rear not sure why you got that bit of advice.

Team Durango have a diff building video on youtube - its good.
Put some thread lock on the the end of the diff screw and let it dry before assembling the diff.
If you want extra smooth action - sand the diff plates flat.
Use a minimal amount of grease
Make sure to run the diff in before assembling the gearbox.

Tungsten Carbide diff balls are a good upgrade - but the standard SS balls aren't bad - just don't last as long.

The diff plates aren't very durable if the diff slips. The balls etc are more durable. Turn the diff plates around when you rebuild the diff or put in new ones. Sanding the plates helps.

So far I have about 20 plus runs on my car and the diff is still smooth like when I built it. When I had it all together in the car I broke the diff in some and then the first pack or two I really ran the car very easy. Since then I tightened the diff a tad and set the slipper and the diff has been fine ever since.

Thanks for the discussion on the STRC caps, I'm not going to bother putting them on, and unfortunately I opened the bag so I can't return them. Maybe some other solution will come up some day. I also heard that Durango is coming up with some soon.

I've found the stock balls to be fairly soft. The first upgrade any car of mine gets is a BFast diff kit with their carbide balls and sanded rings. The diff in my SC is literally going on it's 3rd set of outdrives and still buttery smooth. That's over 6 months of racing. I do however keep the stock thrust assembly in place, it's a good piece.

Choose your surface and grab a hupo or Lutz setup: http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...ngoDEX210.html

I use the STRC caps but I also use the stock hardware to mount my shocks so they have been excellent for me.

You can cut the ball end off the stock plastic one and see if those fit. I did that on a set of caps but they weren't STRC.

Hi,

Exotek caps are designed with an internal ball radius so they mount right up to the stock shock mounts or aftermarket shock mounts;



FYI- new carbon +8mm chassis is in stock!

Thanks!
