Truck is looking good! Those wheels are sweet! Love the way a Durango wheel looks.

They have a great stock shell too.

Uh Oh! Is somebody getting one of these?

ST is coming back this year! This truck helps it a bunch! The new Kyosho helps it also!

Yeah I hope those aren't the wheels DE is making for the truck. A dish would be much better IMO.

They are DE proto types. If you want a dish rim, I hear durango will be releasing yellow rims shortly.

first night out went just fine. had 50wt. oil in front shocks and 40wt. in the rear. come home and blocked off 2 holes in pistons and went to 30 front and 25 rear. already feels better, will try it agin this friday night. used small battery in the middle of chassis and a 1/2 ounce of weight right behind 1313 servo. flyed through the air level this way and had plenty of front steering and rear traction. hope this helps

Going to run 13.5 boosted does 75/ 24 gearing sound about right for this truck.

Will be running with shorty packs as well in RM3

75t is too small for truck and boost. Keep the stock spur which I would think is the the 87...run it like a hot mod. You can start in that pinion range and check for temps. I would prolly try a smaller 22-23 pinion though.
