Yep, but I only had to cut about an 1/8" slit x 3/4". It just barely touched before trimming.

What are you guys doing to keep the wheels from rubbing on the turnbuckle?

Nope, I'm running the aluminum 15mm hexes on yellow team Durango wheels. They rub on the front camber link and it keeps them from going full lock. Does the truck have different caster blocks then the sc and buggy?

Ethier back off the EPA steering throw lock or use the back hole to get more throw on the steering rack from the center its because the shocks are mounted on the inside on the front end shock tower.

Samething with the Dex210 the middle of the turnbuckle hits the springs at full throw . Somebody told me to get the B5 ball ends on the steering turnbuckles because there offset to stop it.

Thanks tc5 but my problem is the wheel making contact with the front camber link where it's mounted to the castor block. The ball end actually rubs on the inside of the wheel when the wheel turns over and never makes it to full lock.

I don't understand how this would be possible in the front. picture?

You have the ball stud in the front of the caster block?

Ok guys I am preping to go to the track with my dest210r for the first time. I have pretty well only run 1/8 or 1/10 4wd sct. Some 2wd sct but with a highly modded slash. This is my first durango though. I have a 8.5 with a 120a esc in it. I plan on running a fairly small indoor track that has low to medium bite. What is a comfortable rear motor starting setup? I have what I believe is The kit springs on it atm.

With the stock 87T spur, I'd start with a 21T pinion. As far as springs go, I think most people will agree that the fronts are too stiff. I run orange springs on my DESC210 and bordeux on my DEST210. I also like a little stiffer spring on the back. I'm currently running light red and black on my trucks.

Thank you sir.... Are the spring colors your refrencing durango option springs or another brand? Just making sure I can find them. I plan on running the truck as is this Saturday if it's somewhat close. What pistons and shock oils are recomended?

Have 2 nearly complete trucks and tires I need to sell to make room. $150.00 gets them. Can provide photos. In top shape, never run on anything other then wet high bite clay.

Those are Durango springs. Here's the complete chart:

What sort of track are you running on? I run on carpet so my shock setups are probably going to be a lot different than those that run on dirt.
