thanks i have not tried that but seems like a very simple thing to do... should have thought of that myself.. LOL

I guess I did not assemble it correctly, because i have a tiny play in the arm.
But Ill have to admit that I had to wide the springs a Little bit to have it fit.

I do not run a saver at all I just run an aluminium horn. No issues as of yet from the current Sanwa servo or the Past Savox 1251.
I run the same Servo as you, and I Think Ill go for just the horn to.

Other then that, im pretty satisfied with the build. Havent tried it yet on a course..Oh! One of the piston rods came with hardly no threads. But they send me a pair of new ones from hobbico right away!

I had my first outing with this car last night, after 2 packs, i ran out of time, and was really pleased! It's box stock except i have the Aluminum Servo mounts, Xray Hard front bumper and Yokomo Pink/Blue springs, and it was really composed! I was able to concentrate on driving instead of fighting with the car! I used to have a BD7 2014, i know how much work that car was, lets see if the Durango is the same.

First race is Sunday, lets see how it goes!

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but it appears that Durango is coming out with 86t and 100t 64p spur gears for the detc410 sometime in June.

Has anyone seen any aftermarket parts for this yet (exotek, RSD, smokem, etc)? I wonder if one of these companies will make a shorty shock conversion.

C&M Motorsports is working on a replacement carbon fiber chassis that is 2.5mm instead of the 2.25mm as well as a stronger 2.5mm top deck.

He's also making a carbon bumper brace to replace the plastic kit piece and if there's enough demand he's making production 2.25mm 7075T6 aluminum chassis. The first prototypes will be ready this week with production chassis the soon after.

You can email here: cmmotorsports@att.net

It's probably best to shoot an email to cmmotorsports@att.net for pricing info.

Facebook will have the new products & pricing any day I'm sure.

First race weekend with the car, all i can say is flawless. The car was great, pushed a little, changed the front springs, and i finished 2nd in the A-main! Awesome car!




Can anyone tell me the size of the Durango's pivot balls? I want to replace the ball cups, after 1 weekend of racing, the original ones have developed a lot of slop.

I received this car under a certain situation that helped another racer out. I was curious about the car and the geometry of the car.

Taking nothing away from this car, it is flat out the best out of the box car I have ever driven. The few times I have run it the car has worked exceptionally, and surprisingly well. It responds to changes positively and is very easy to work on.

If I wasn't under another tent this would be the car I would run, hands down.
