Come meet me at ocrc one day and I will help u get ur issues worked out.

Just tried out my mid motor setup for the first time on an indoor clay track. For the first outing, it worked really well. Track was a bit wet, so traction is still a bit of a mystery, but in the sections that were dry it felt like it wasn't going to be a problem. Ofcourse the turning was far superior to RM, but I expected that. All in all, it was a very positive testing.

I had the same issue when building my ball diff, I was wondering why I kept having issues of it not working properly and when I looked at all the video's and pics online I noticed the same thing with the eclip I was sent. So I would def. contact Team Durango and get the correct one or the diff will just keep giving out..........

They changed the circlip from the one that came with the DEX210 - it appears now that both sides have sharp edges, meaning circlip orientation doesn't matter anymore. At least that's how my DESC210 was. Still waiting for the ST to show up. CC got hacked and delayed the order process. Dangit!

Default Chassis

Well i am pretty disappointed to report my chassis broke after about 6 packs. It broke right around the front bulkhead screws. Cracks started after about 4 packs and then it totally let go a couple packs later. I don't know if I got a bad chassis or if there is an issue. We'll have to see if anyone else has the same issue.

How big are the jumps on your track? Or did you have a super big crash I have done 3000+ laps and mine hardly has a mark on it.

I really cant see how unless it was stress cracked as you say

The jumps aren't big. It is OCRC so it is in indoor clay track with a relatively tame track. I wish I could say, yeah I pinned it into the end of the straightaway, because then I wouldn't be so disappointed, but that just wasn't the case. It hasn't been crashed any harder than 90% of the other cars on our track, so unfortuately either I got a bad chassis, or there are going to be more of the same.
