So I just got a deal on a pair of 19 degree hub carriers and wondering what difference I should notice from the 17 degree stock hubs?

I've been running the v3 for about a month and love the ways it handles already!

Should I need to adjust anything else once the 19's are installed?

If I'm not mistaken by going to the 19 degree hubs it'll make the steering a lazier or smoother and not as sharp or twitchy.

less steering on entry and exit, more mid turn. Typically makes the steering feel smoother. I'm basically running a v4 with the 17* hubs and don't plan on changing, too expensive

UPDATE. After my first few practice runs at OCRC it seemed my 410 was getting quite a bit hotter. Especially with the 5.5T Speed Passion V3.0MMM motor. After spending some time with this motor I think it's just too much for the car. I popped my 6.5T motor in and its also the older style rotor (slightly heavier) and viola the car is suddenly easy to drive and all the power is getting to the ground. I had the DRRS on my Speed Passion ESC around 3 or 4 with about 11.75 degrees of timing.

Side note, I killed two 25mm fans in the car. Which when they got stuck seemed to really overhear the ESC. It seems the 30mm Speed Passion fans are really really good though, I have one mounted sideways pointed at the motor and slipper assembly. I'll post pics later…and since I busted my 25mm fans (maybe it was three of them!) I ended up just using a single screw to hold down the 30mm fan on my older Speed Passion ESC….it survived several long practice runs and kept everything running nice and cool again. After fixing my fans I never got over about 120F.

Long overdue thanks to all who have helped me tune my Durango it's really really quick these days. Especially BMan! Your latest tuning ideas from weeks ago worked very well. Cheers!

I'm pretty sure I was the only Durango at OCRC today.

I'm stilling running mostly a V3 car, minus the dual slipper setup and a few other mods. My drivetrain is still V3, does the V4 have a longer rear drive shaft? I popped mine out today. The drive shaft that is between the slipper and the rear diff. It happens whenever you case something real hard. Case = landing on the chassis directly causing the chassis to flex…..Seems the best fix would be to just have a few more millimeters in length so it would fit farther inside the cup. Seems to be plenty of room for it in the dual slipper setup….

@13Machine. Glad to hear you got your car straightened out!! What advice did you use, so I can use it again in the future.... as for the driveshaft. Stock v3 is 68mm long. They do have a cvd in 70 or the new UJ is 70 too if I remember correctly. Now to go beat up some 413's and 44's......

13Maschine - yea I ran a few practice laps with a fan out of a castle mamba monster esc and it failed. I ran out of batteries what seemed very quickly as a result, considering my buggy doesn't drain my batteries far during a race. I'm probably not going to run a fan seeing my temps without it though and the durability problems lol
Glad you got everything worked out for you though!

And yea, the only race I've done so for with this car I didn't have it setup well at all (way too tight) and finished 2/3 in the heats and mains and I was the only one without a b44
My friend got a dex410 to race then traded it for a b44 before he ever raced it...

Silly guy!! Lol, the 410 is a beast! I guess I'm a little partial. 13Maschine - do you ever run down at SDRC?

The rear center UJ is the same length as the v3 driveshaft.

Are you sure? I'm almost positive my UJ is 70mm where the v3 is 68mm....

You're right, had to check my buggy and it is 70mm. I was just going off the pictures on TD's kit page, they must have revised it before release.

I have to admit I've been looking at the D413 seriously….It's just so awesome looking. I love being able to do shorty out of the box and all that too.

Anyone wanna wager a guess on how long before we see a V5? I'd probably snag a V4 kit on discount if the new ride came out….

BMan: I think it was the front sway bar that really made the car easier to drive. Also you mentioned trying heavier shock oil up front so I'm running 35 now, probably 1.6. Need to check I didn't actually get to spend any time doing setup as I was dealer with the FAN overheating ESC issue….The car was very good though. I could drive it really hard and stay in control.

I think Barcodes are much better than my Ions…Seems like the Ions wore very fast and was harder to control the car. I tried both the version of Barcode in the rear and both seem really good.

@TLRunner: NOT YET! But I want to come down there soon. SDRC looks awesome! Do you have much of a Durango contingent?

Other guys who are running the 1258 Savox servo….any centering trouble? I noticed when I go left and right with the steering wheel it never comes back to dead center. I can see it on the track too. Anyone else notice this?

Thanks!
