The "new" lower bulkheads are the original ones, but a bit more cut to save some weight. As far as I know there is no new spur gear System. I think he did just not mount the other side of the motor-mount.

To use a gear diff in front you need to use the front diff outdrives #TD310440.

I didn't have any missing parts, and I had a lot of shims left over. Look at some of the other part trees and see if the parts are on them. I somehow got off track when building mine, but ended up with shims left over.

Thats fine, we want more involvement in clubs but I wouldn't want it to be labled as cheap kit and be in the same categories as those cheap kits!

it really depends on your track and its size. I started at 4.07 (46t) and not at 3.90 and its much better for my track. You need to experiment. Good ball park is to start around 4.0 FDR.

That bumper is crap and too soft, you need a hard bumper. Replace it with the Xray bumper.

The shims for G1 are on the same tree as the shock spacers used in C3.

Is it normal that i need so different EPA for the steering? Left a value of 80 and right 120. A small difference is normal, but so much?
Servo is a Savöx 1251 and the transmitter a Futaba T4PK. The servo horn is mounted in the center.

When setting up your steering, you must ensure that the servo horn and the tie-rod are at a 90 degree angle. In the case of the DETC410, this means that the servo horn leans towards the middle of the chassis slightly. The brand of servo and radio make no difference. See how the servo arm on my steering servo leans into the middle of the chassis.

Thx for your help. It works. A tie-rod was also bent.

Hello, rc-demon,
Can you please explain why you think the stock bumper is crap?
If you leave it as one part without takubg out the inserts it's pretty stiff and protects the front suspension well.
The next thing is: what makes a kit for 200€ worse than a kit for 450€? I think the example of the detc410 makes clear, that you pay a lot for the brands name and their pro drivers. Durango decided that they don't need a pro team anymore and they give the benefit to the costumers with a lower price. This does not affect the quality of the car.
It is known, that the plastic parts are quite soft. Thats the reason why other parts and material is tested.
But there will not be a complete new kit in the near future.
