Truck jumps great and steers awesome. A tad loose in the rear but still tightening the diff, may move bat back to the mid location. Also have Exotek alloy idle shaft and Tresrey motor plate and front bulkhead w/ pivot supports. A little red bling never hurts.
Man sounds like you got a nice ride! I think I need one. Let us know how it works out.

If I pick one of these up what parts if any look to be areas of concern. I only have the 410 so I am not familiar with any of the 2wd issues. I know there was some issue on the 210 early on with the rear inside ball stud mount. What was done to address that and is it still a weak spot on the new trucks?

Inside rear mount is not really an issue. Anything can break if preasured excessively. There are several companys making a piece that mounts the ballstud reversed directly above the stock location without the need to replace the tranny case. Only issue I've ever had with the 210's were the ball cups, I just automatically change to TC6 gold ball studs and Losi HD ballcups. With the truck you must use offset cups on the outside fronts so I use the Jcon ones there. Changing the rear arm mounts to alloy is only for the durability, note this change requires the pivot balls used on the buggy.

This truck on the first runs already runs better than my 22t's first runs. I realize that is my opinion and am not critisizing the 22t's in any way. Everyone needs to run what they want and for me it's Durango. Just trying to stop the haters.

Will these work with the stock ballstuds, or do you have to buy the whole kit?

Gotta get the whole kit. The combo listed a few posts up is a much cheaper way to go, and I had great luck with the JC ballcups on my AE cars.

my only complaint was the ball cups, but jconcepts cups and lunsford balls on the way, I also cut off the front droop screw tabs and put 4mm of spacers under the pistons on the front. I used my same set up on my buggy except for shock oils. I used the exotech rear hubs with a shorty pack 3/4 way forward. truck jumps and handles great I can definatly get in the throttle more than I could with my b4 i use to have.

Ok after more testing today all I would like is a little more aggressive steering but it's so much fun to drive

Have not had 1 ball cup problem at all after nearly 1000 laps of testing.

1 thing I am going to change though is take out the boosted 13.5 and install a stock blinky mode 10.5 rev tech in there. As we are running this class with 10.5 stock

Just wondering what gearing for this combo ? With a 81 spur. Thinking 26 or 27 piņon

Has anyone noticed TD released some more RTR trucks, dest210 and desc210? They look pretty nice. Also for those who run yellow wheels, TD has them listed now, just out of stock, damnit!

RW has for Rangos but not sure it has the tooth you need(69T,75T and 81T being the smallest unless they have updated their website) Tresrey has em that will allow you to use AE/TAmiya Spur but its a bit pricey..

http://www.tresrey-usa.com/tresrey-s...ex210-dest210/

TD site

Machine Spur

http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD310311


drilling the wholes will likely cause more harm than good unless you have the right tool to do the job for it.

goodluck.

Well since I haven't been able to sell my rango I decided to give it another shot. I ordered the tc5 ballstuds as well as jconcept and losi rod ends so we'll see if that fixes the issue I've been having with the turnbuckles popping off very easily...... Going to try the gear diff as well since for some reason I can't seem to build the dang ball diff correctly.......... Also upgraded to alum. toe blocks and going to try and dial it in next time out at the track using Randy Pike's setup as a guideline........

How hard are you hitting the pipes mate as they don't pop off that easy at all on track

Did you build them with a drill or wind them on and off the full thread and use grease in threads ?

I had trouble with my DEX210 ball cups but this time round I built them as shown on TD site and they have been perfect.

Yes I used gear diffs in the 2wd from TD and just use grease to cover the gers don't fill it and it will take about 2 or 3 lipos to loosen right up.
