Body / bumpers / wheels and tires. SC body mounts already come with the ST.

Well honestly today wasn't a very good today for me at the track with the rango. From the start I was having issues with the screw backing out of the axle in the front causing the axle to pop out, now that was my fault I'll admit that so after adding loctite and letting it dry that problem was solved. Then I started having issue's with the rod ends popping off. I could barely finish two laps and not even have any bad crashes and the fronts just wouldn't stay still. Then towards the end of the day the servo links screws had somehow came undone. After that I called it quits I felt bad because there was a guy there looking at buying one of these and after seeing all the issue's I was having he is unsure now. Is anyone else having issue's with their turnbuckles popping off so easily, as well as will rpm ones work or lunsford?

get ready, there's gonna be a couple guys popping in here to say they never have problems with the stock ballcups.

I've only had problems with the stock ballcups/ends on all my durango vehicles. I've switched over to AE TC5 ballstuds and Losi ball cups. The TC5 studs have a metric thread but "standard" size ballstud.

LOL I had a feeling there would be some that would say that, but its nice to know there are some people that are having the same issue as me. I think I'm going to order a set of the long rodends from RPM.....

The durango balls are a unique size, the RPM ballcups won't work

Damit, well I guess I'll wait and give it another try next week at the track....... I'm going to tear the front end apart and see if I may have done anything wrong on the install to cause them to pop out so easily. Hopefully I'll have better luck on the track next time and get more then 2-3 laps out of it. If not I'll be trading for a 22T or T4.1 ;-) lol............

anyone running mm4? I read that since the dex210 runs better as a mm than rm, I thought to go the same route as the dex210. Sound reasoning? Has anyone had time to compare the difference yet? Thanks.

It really depends on the track/dirt. Your gonna have to see what others are running and or try it for yourself. To say the 210 or this truck is better in mm isn't necessarily true.

I would be a part of that crowd man. Still using stockers on all our cars. But if I were to change them for anything, it would be the JC cups and TC5 studs. The JC cups were all I used on our AE cars and they were awesome. Never popped one, ever.
