Lock tight!!!! Had the same issue on mine. Used the lock tight that came with the kit.

Use longer screws and Loctite. I´m of the opinion, that the screws in the kit are to short.

Default Team Durango wins LRP Touring car masters

Hello, everyone,
the lrp toring car masters (tcm) took place last Weekend and we had 5 participants there. Björn Brockman tqed and won the 17.5 blinky class while Michael Spiering qualified 3rd but endet up 5th with little luck in the finals.
I participated in the 10.5 class but wasn´t my Weekend so I endet 23rd but the car felt good in the end.
The track was large and flowing on blue ETS-carpet. We had to use LRP CPX tires and hotbodies Bodys as well as LRP Motors and esc.
I can post Setup in the next days, as we need to recover from the long Weekend first^^
greets
Chris

Default Front Diff

So put a front diff in my car and there seems to be a lot of play in the driveshaft/outdrive area. Does anyone have a solution for this, or have people been living with it? I'm not sure if the rear driveshaft would work in the front since they are 44mm versus 41mm and there might be other reasons.

Just checking, do you have the front diff outdrives TD310440 installed? They have a smaller gap for the driveshaft pin than the rear ones.

I did this after the 3rd time it popped loose on me and it solved the issue, books says a 3x10, I went to a 3x12 and Locktite and no more issues

As someone else mentioned, you need to loctite the set screw to the lower shock mount then attach lower mount with your nut driver.

An other solution some people are doing is using longer set screws and screwing it in directly to the a-arm. There is enough aterial to do this.

Not to my knowledge. The part that is breaking, is the the part you can slip a velcro strap through?
If so this was my solution (with a friends help).
We added longer screws used a punch to punch through the strap and secured it with a nylon locking nut. (I would add an image but apparently I can't, but you should be able to figure out what I am saying.)
It works great...would be even better if I had a hard case battery but still works as long as I add servo tape under the battery. My buddy did the same thing on his VBC and so far both of us have had no battery issues.....and we have hit things HARD, my car actually got airborne a few races ago and it was fine....body was mangled though.

my only really big issue is the softness of some of the plastic. Normally it would be ok but the adjustablity (additional mount points, IE holes) make it so things strip out easily. MY solution has been to stuff every adjustable point with a m3x5 set screws. I hope we see some harder plastic in the future.
