You can change pinion through the slot in the bottom of the chassis. This stops you taking the top deck off that's what the slot is for.

What motor turn are you running? Are you using correct spur gear for your motor range?

Running 17.5 and HAD a 100 tooth pinion. Now I have to buy smaller spurs (of course I cant use one of the others I already have because they are too thick to fit in the assembly). My "old" car is much easier to work on. Between these issues and a bad speed control which is new but purchased over a year ago, Im losing my enthusiasm. The day I get it all sorted out, I'll be in love with the hobby again but after a year of absence, I understand why its so hard to get new blood into touring cars.

Most cars have the same issues. You can only get a range of pinion on for your spur gear. You need to select the spur based on the class and car you are running. Also, not all spurs will fit any car. You must get the correct spur for your car. I know there are a few manufacturers that sell spurs that fit the Durango, but I can't remember them right now. They are however in this thread, but back many pages.

You will need a 86 turn spur for slower stock classes as reccomended in the manual.

As for your speed controller issues I'd go and see someone at the same club as you get them to set yours up or help you with it.

What you need to remember is this is a high spec touring car you need to ensure you build it correctly first and then try the set up in the manual this should give you a good start point.

Well I just checked the manual on line and see nothing about the spur gears. Anyway, I ordered 90t spurs and with the right FDR I should be ok. If not, I'll abandon the center stiffener for now. Im pretty much out of time and money for more gears. As for the ESC I went back to my old reliable Speed Passion ProStock and it works fine.

Have a look at this page on the website if you scroll down to the spur gears it gives you the correct ones to run with your motor. It's the v2 car but the section on spur gears outlines what I am saying.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say centre stiffener can you post a photo.

A smaller spur should eradicate that problem and give you more room to fit the pinion you want to run to give the correct FDR for your 17.5 just stay within the gear chart range for that spur gear.

The v1 is pretty much exactly the same drive train lay out wise and size

Im just saying they could have simply engineered the center post to fit bigger spur/pinion gear combos. Its not like there's a lot of tension on that post. The other thing I wondered, and I realize this is nitpicking, why is that screw so long?

How don't have a Durango anymore, but I don't remember that screw being that long.

Not sure why it's so long swap it for a smaller one personally it doesn't bother me.

Iv ran modified with 116 spur and 100 spur in 13.5 and never had a issue id try the 86spur for 17.5 to start with.

Hope that helps
