Its the kit. The only thing I think I might not get is the rear chassis brace that has the arch to cover the motor. I didn't know if there was anything else.

I'm running 4 gear MM but on carpet so there's no lack of traction. What sort of track are you running on? What tires?

Running MM4 is the reason I got one. Cush setup on petitrc.com with stick battery all the way back feels pretty decent on my clay indoor tracks. I'm running m4 electrons.

For MM4 AND RM4, is there a different gearbox case or just the different idlers and rotation? Sorry for probably obvious questions but like I said I am new to the Durango platform.

All the different configurations use the same gear box, it's just the idlers and layshaft configuration that changes.

My son ran that set up when he had it in rm version . I built mine in mm4 to see if it was better than rear motor , and it is in the jumps and turns but the forward bite was not real good . I run a 6.5 motor if I ease in the throttle I'm ok but looking for more rear bite . I made a 48 gram weight for the back of it going to try that with diffrent shock settings. I'm happy with it for only 1 day on it .. Cush and Johnny 5 race at the Track I go to I know them . There set ups are usually on a good bite clay track. They don't run Durango anymore .

I run MM4 on indoor clay, dont really have issues with traction, mine still pulls wheelies once in a while if I come out of a corner hard. I had more issues trying to get it to steer, but I finally got it right. I run a D4 13.5 with the high torque rotor in mine, geared 75/26

So I finally got around to working on a 12mm hex solution. I still have a few other ideas to adjust the final track widths front and rear...but here's an easy 12mm hex conversion that almost keeps stock track widths.

Rear- (needed: Dex210 axles, B4.2 rear clamping hexes, TLR 22t wheels)
Swap DEST210 axle for a Dex210 axle
Install Proline or JConcepts B4.2 rear clamping hexes using AE axle pins
Install TLR 22T wheels
net trackwidth change is -2mm per side

Front- (needed: B44.2 front clamping hexes, AE T4 wheels)
Pull stock axle
Put 3mm spacer on axle on reinstall through carrier (moving stock spacer from outside to inside of axle carrier)
Install B44.2 front clamping hexes, don't use axle pins...just tighten clamping hex
Install AE T4 wheels
net change in trackwidth is +1mm per side

Raced indoor for the first time this season yesterday. Broke a rear arm in one of the qualifiers and stripped out the servo horn in the main. Still had a ton of fun.

So I'm pretty amped up guys, I just stopped by my track to test fit my buddies RT6 mid motor body and I think I can make it work. I have to move the front body mounts up on the shock tower but I don't think it will be a big deal at all. I'll post up some pics when she is done.

So I got the body cut out last night and lined up on the truck. The only thing I had to do to make it work was move the front body mounts further up the shock tower. This meant re-drilling two new holes just under where the front shock mounts are. It will need something on the body to keep the shock tower from rubbing the paint off but other then that it went pretty well. The only thing I would change the next time I do a body would be to leave the sides a little bit longer until I get the body mounted and then trim to the same level as the bottom of the chassis. Right now its really close but you can see the back of the chassis if your looking for it.

That body looks pretty good on there. Did you have to cut a hole so that the rear shock tower didn't hit?
