The 3x2mm o-rings are for shocks and 4x2mm for diffs.

If you have them both side by side, the Durango looks far more of a gold colour while Xray's are a proper orange.

If there is one criticism of the kit is the use of .50 screws for the clamping hexes, just not enough material in such a screw for this particular application, and would like to see 1.5mm at a minimum if not 2mm.

For those looking at gearing for blinky classes such as 13.5 I would recommend a minimum spur of 68 teeth in 48 pitch...I have installed a 66t and get the desired ratio just, so 68t would provide broader gearing options.

I just ordered a detc410. First non Tamiya in a while. Part support for Durango is very good here in the midwest U.S., so I figured I would give it a try. Price point for this kit is great given all the goodies it comes standard with.

To the lucky few that have their kits built already: do you have any build tips I should be aware of?

Also, I have a few 105T spec-r spurs laying around, I need to get to a 4.0 FDR for 17.5 blinky. Will a 51 or 52t pinion fit with the 105t spur?

I went with a 96T spur 64P. And around 49-51 pinion. Fits perfect, lots of room to go higher or lower. I run blinky 17.5 too. I get around 3.6-3.8 FDR.

Internal ratio is 1.95. So (105/51)*1.95= 4.0147. Close!!!!

RJ is running a 49/98 or a 3.8 FDR

When installing the inserts for the shocks into the lower arm, make sure you do not over tighten the set screw for the lower shock ball. You may even want to use a small drop of CA to solidify the assembly of the insert and prevent the insert from "spreading" or dislodging from repeated stresses on the lower arm.

For a new built kit the driveline is ultra smooth Main reason for going 48 pitch is I already had a good collection of pinions in this pitch.

Default New build

Well, my first touring car build in 10+ years went really well. I'm excited to finally have a TC again, and can't wait to try this car out. Only hiccup I had was with the front axles, getting the pins in. Other than that, car went together extremely well, part fitment was great, and everything is free and smooth. A+ Durango.

The only negative I have heard on this car is the durability. Parts are a little fragile, but hear the car handles fantastic.

Anyone used the optional shock orings and able to tell me what the difference was?

I believe there is a softer and harder version.
