I've never heard of anyone ripping the front camber studs out. You may want to look into CF if you're a rough driver though.
Sorry ball diff my bad, I try not to be a rough driver but I only started doing it earlier this year, but yes if I stopped crashing I wouldn't have these issues

Just trying to future proof I read so many people breaking rear towers and I haven't had an issue yet but have a spare set ready to go.

Tried it last night and it was awesome. No problems. Very smooth power delivery and I could spend more time on the throttle as compared to stock. I did get the Durango upgrade pack as well as the slipper package.

I'm cheap and just went with the VST set up, cheaper, I can get it at my LHS (that I work at) and it uses regular spurs, and it looks sexier

I just returned to the hobby last year. Just was curious why you used that term for my knowledge. So much to re-learn.

Any tips on how much to tighten the diff? I haven't run my car yet and set the diff up like I do on past cars. I do the tire spin test and set it up to spin 1-1.5 turns. From the sound of it, this won't be tight enough.

Do you have your esc on the left or right with the MM setup?
It would be a lot easier to route the wires if the esc were on the right side.

I got to check out the Durango DEX210 up close while making a product for my company for them, and wow, looks like a lot of engineering went in for a company that is not already well known in the 2wd racing category.

Impressed to say the least. Keep up the good work Durango.

The rumor was they spent a million dollars on the devlopment, no way of confirming that though. They did spend 10 years developing the dex410 when it first came out.

There is a good build video online...someone might have the link up. Build it as described in the manual and crank it down. After you break it in crank it again. The last thing that you want is that diff to bark.

Was running the ball diff with b-fast pro kit. IMHO the diff would never get tight enough. Finally decided to throw a gear diff in it. Ran it this weekend and it was better than the ball diff all day long.

Yes, I saw the video before building mine, so I'm confident the build is good. I just don't want it to bark, and from the sound of it, it's almost not possible to go too tight.

Yea man...just crank it down. I wouldnt swap this diff for any other. It works flawlessly and im running a 7.5 t motor with lots of speedo timing and boost.
