That's how I changed mine to 4 hole, never had an issue doing it this way.

CA glue a tooth pick in the holes, let it dry, cut off extra, and sand flat. I have done this to both my DEX210, and DESC210 and it's perfect.

How to install a Sav÷x servo?
I would like to use the original Durango screws for the mounts but then you would have to use the rubber bushings.

Easy, clean and quick. I've done this for years without problems

Or buy 4x 1.0 tapered pistons (generally available online) and hand drill out to your desired size.

All of these options work fine. Use the one you're most comfortable with.

The D3.5 just doesnt have many clock options on the can. I didnt want it clocked that far to keep it protected.

Where do you want the tabs to be? 2:00 seems ideal for me.

That isnt too bad but I dont have a rear bumper either. I try to keep them as far forward as possible. Just wish the front didnt have the extra area machined out.

Reedy Sonics (my preference) are fine too but Amain was out of 13.5s when I ordered the motor for this buggy (they're working on a spec'ish class out here). This is my first Trinity in years (10 probably ), not sure why they had to use the asymmetrical design but I guess everyone has to be unique.

I just ordered the Diggity Designs front and rear carbon towers. I ordered the 4mm lowered rear tower. My question is about dogbone issues with the additional droop. I don't currently run the "Long" outdrives, will I have issues with the driveshafts popping out?

Also, are the edges prepped or do they need to be sanded/CA glued?

Sorry, the pic is from my SC. Only had that one on my phone. My DEX210 only has the motor guard and is fine.

It's recommended to run the longer outdrives, especially with the additional droop.

The edges of the Diggity Designs towers are not prepped and it is recommended to CA them.
