Congrats to TBrymer on his win with his Durango this week. In the first round the new car was close to his pace. Our local track is very competitive with all brands represented, we typically have an A,B, and C main, TBrymer and myself are typically in the A main and very competitive with our Durango's.
Did you run on carpet or asphalt?

We run a soda prepped asphalt parking lot. Typically I run 3 dot front and 2 dot rear with long rear links and medium front. I like 4 mm spacers under the inside ball studs with the top rear shocks inclined all the way in.

My car was definitely hooked up and very easy to drive Crowbo74, you might try to change the ackerman and see if you can tame the steering with the aluminum chassis. I'm sure there are about 50 things you can try, but I know Gabe has had luck changing the ackerman when he had similar issues, and you know his car is really good.

I'm not 100% but I think the holes would be slightly different you would also need a third hole for the front post.

Selling my DETC410 with custom aluminum chassis. Custom carbon bits and tons of extras/spares as well. See my post in the for sale section.

There might be others but those are what I found based on 173t belt length 519mm, and 62t 186mm.

And some extra parts in the box, 3 Spurgears for many Settings - Looks good to me too.

You'll all love the new plastics. They really are at least on a par with any manufacture out there.

I have been running them since Feb/March and have the same set in all summer.

You'll love the light weight items too

Great to see they took feedback from drivers onboard and made some revisions to the design. I'm very happy with mine, the only issues I had were the composite spool outdrives failing on high traction circuits and the amount of free play that developed in the ball cups. Looking forward to seeing these in my local.
