Using the DESC front bumper is the ticket - Took a nasty wall hit last night and kept racing. That hit should have broken the chassis.

I simply screwed the bumper on, the cut off the bulk of it (right in front of the webbing for the rest of the bumper structure on the SC) and rounded it all off. Strong and barely noticeable. Durango should make it this way

No timing baseline for a 13.5 is 81/25. For every 10 degrees of timing, subtract one tooth from the pinion. One step at a time, and always monitor temps. In theory your gearing could sustain 50 degrees of timing, but I wouldn't ever recommend starting with a full tilt boost setup unless I had run it myself without issue- which I haven't.

Does anyone stock yellow wheels for this truck? I just picked up a kit and found white wheels. So I go looking for yellow, And like usual Durango, no yellow wheels in stock anywhere.

I just might return the kit and wait for stock. I have noticed a shortage of parts for my dex210 as well. Just as well save myself the headaches and try something else.

My LHS has them in stock. If you'd be willing to pay the shipping I can grab you some and mail them to you.

Are you guys getting a bouncy front end? I have tried many combinations with regards the front shocks(spring , piston and shock oil) and the front end always seems to be soft and bouncy. Its like whatever I change it doesn't really seem to effect them.

Currently at the front I m running 4x1.3 pistons with avid yellow rear truck springs with 375 oil. The rear end/shocks is ok and you can actual feel the changes .

Any help will be apreciated,
