OK thanks. May have to put xray cups and balls on mine then. I have an xb4 and the ball cups are nice with no slop.

Thx guys, I'll pay attention to avoid overtightening the steering.
And I'll use loctite for all of the screws into alloy

I can confirm that durango is working on new plastic compound. But no release date yet.

Just received a Trackstar Turbo 120A Esc and a 10.5 Trackstar motor.

Even if this car is kind of premium, having bought it for half the price, I'm still thinking of it as a "premium-budget" car

Still wondering how to gear it.

This page says a 5.5 ratio is fine for a 10.5 motor
http://durangofansite.com/main.php?v...0&page=gearing

I can have such a ratio with my 116 spur and a 41 gear, or with a 100 spur (needed) and a 36 gear.

What would be best ?

Did you get the program box for it? I made the mistake of getting one and finding out it's not programmable with the button. There are some really cool features like brake frequency and drive frequency.

Arf, I didn't

I'll tick that box for my next HK order (which will occur very soon as I plan to buy a Basher BZ222 for my son)

Thanx for the advice

How does this car stack up to the other cars out. I have a chance to get a new one or a trf417. Looking for honest opinions from guys that have both. Thanks.

I have ran many different cars and keep going back to the Durango. With the 2 I just picked up I will have a total of 5. What I like about the Durango is the ease of use, you will have 4 setup options to choose from depending on your track. The stock setups are good and allow you to tweak for your preference. Some people complain about the plastic, but my cars have been pretty durable and new plastics are on their way. I don't like the plastic shims or the spool the kit comes with but everything else seems to be good.

Tamiya makes a solid car but the baseline setup may not fit your track or driving.

PS if anyone is looking for a nice Awesomatix let me know. Sticking with my Durango's.

Anyone know of any movement on the rumored aluminum chassis plate? Updated plastics? Possibly included in a V2?
