Ray, it will also be dependent upon which motor you are going to use.

There may or may not be interference with the top deck with some pinions as well as an interference issue at the chassis motor mount plate.

If you were closer, I would show you on mine and RJ's car.

Also, side note for all of you guys who have the car. Check your chassis', especially at the battery hold down screws and at the rear front arm mount when not using split blocks.

Under certain conditions during a hard crash, the battery hold downs will break the locator pin and cause a de-lamination of the chassis as the those screws torque and move (I have not found a fix other than a longer screw with a nut on the battery side).

The same goes for the rear front arm mount when using the 3mm plastic spacers, the torque from an impact will cause the mount to flex and damage the chassis as the screws try to pull through.

I have inspected 12 different chassis' over the last 3 months, and all have the same damage in the same spots from the exact same thing.

I'm running either the short stack Fantom or the R1. Setting the car up for Leisure Hours....but I wanna come play at your track too! With that huge back straight gearing is going to be critical (as you know). Thanks for your help.

I just picked up one of these for $235 shipped from MB Models. If you send them an email they'll send a paypal invoice and ship to the us.

Default Low friction belts

Does anyone make low friction belts for the Durango? This is the only TC I have, so I'm not sure if they are universal or not. Any help is appreciated.

What's wrong with the stock belts? Degreasing and oiling the bearings will do more

Measure the length of the stock belts and try to cross reference them with low friction belts for xray or tamiya or one of the more popular cars.
