Why is it hard to understand that my shafts are 68mm and some are 70mm? There are two part numbers on the durango site for each length?

I'm using the Carbon fiber brace.

I'm not saying you have one or the other. But I do find it peculiar that you'd have received shafts shorter than the norm that would lend themselves to pop out. Unless your out drives were somehow machined too short?

just checked my mates DEX410v3 and he has 70mm CVd's so looks like maybe it was a running change in the V3 to stop the issue. I never had one pop when I ran my 68mm but.

13Maschine : Go the V4 UJ shafts there better overall.

the v3 was 68mm with the longer outdrive, the previous versions had 70mm with a shorter outdrive, the new UJ's are 70mm

Nice car..can I suggest that it is better to run the motor wires over the front shaft
It just helps to keep the air moving around the motor. I had mine like yours and it kept over heating...my 2 cents...great car enjoy it

Very much. The VTX10RBE is perfect for wheeler and runs cool. The Mod motors are pretty decent too. With the Progauge, makes trackside adjustments a breeze. 365 day warranty on the ESC can't be beat!

Yeah thought about that. Ran my v2 and v3 like this so fairly confident it'll be fine. I have that option if it gets too hot...Motor always gets a little 'spicey' after a run.

I actually put full ceramics in my v2 to help bring the heat down as the bearings were terrible in that car.

motor wires like that is fine, running them over its hard to get clearance of the body and center drive shaft when removing the slipper. looks good.

I run mine over the top and it's just as easy as when I ran them below, but it looks nicer and is more comfortable to work on if you have to remove the motor or ESC for any reason. You just need to leave enough slack for clearance for center assembly removal. And it doesn't touch my lid at all.
