Kyosho 700 cst is what I run on an indoor medium traction track. Buttery smooth like a ball diff.

I use Viper Synthetic for my gears, or lithium. On the ball diff, I picked up some rings, a new screw, thrust kit, and Acer carbide balls from Tower. The Acer balls are very reasonably priced. I also used the Durango video for assy. I use a full battery pack, and added a lead sheet, 1/16 thick, under the battery compartment.

The RTR gear diff out of the box only has one set of planetary gears in it and a little bit of grease... no weighted oil from the two that I've taken apart.
Looks like this...

Those arms aren't gullwing...maybe a look into the future? Nice to see Durango looking to evolve the platform.

Thank you for the info. I'll grab the extra set of planetary gears and a ball diff while I'm at it.

I read that they are testing the RB6 gear box as well and a shorter steering rack

Looking at getting a DEX210 to replace my RB5 WC with, and I am wondering something.

I found this, http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD330400

does this allow me to use b4.2 wheels front?

I found 12mm hexes for the rear, it would just be easier and cheaper than buying new wheels and tires.

Also are there any talks of a new updated or newer version of the buggy coming out? I would hate to buy it, and have a new kit replace it 2-3 months later.

Thank you

No that link is for front axels. You would still need to run bearing front wheels so the 4.2s wont work as they are hex.
