What fan mount is that and does it fit under the v4 body? And as for being loose in the rear with a shorty pack yes it is but you can add weight to get it closer to a saddle pack and setup the car to compensate, I chose shortys because I can fit and remove them without pulling the spur gear assembly out and the fact I already had them.

Oh man is my car ready for tomorrow. That 8.5 is really moving along, and it is so much quieter with the plastic gears, really nice. I went through my stock of spur gears to find one that was truly round, and it made a difference. Can't wait for those Electrons to slap on the front.

Yeah its just a 10mm thick fan.

I find the shorty only works on a track where you have a lot of rear grip but the front wants to push straight on which there isnt very many for this car, anywhere else it just makes the front sooooo twitchy!!!

The square pack fits like the car was designed for one. Saddles have two much going on with two packs.

I ran it on the track and it was dialed. Ever have one of those nights that stupid stuff keeps happening, a lot of it my own fault, mainly overlooking stuff before the race.

I'll change 14mm wheel hub to 12mm and buy proline 2.4" vtr front and rear wheel but they have 3 different wheel, for b44.2, zx6 and 22-4. What is different between them? What should I buy?

Hey Guys, Not sure if this is the appropriate forum to advertise my car for sale, so if not let me know. I have a 2 year old Durango Dex410. I have raced it indoors only. Maybe had it at the track 15 times. Really great condition. Also have a bag full of new parts, upper lower arms etc. Probably $75 worth of parts in the bag. Looking for best offer. I will be keeping the servo motor and esc.
I will post a few pics later today once i get home from work.

I believe that the offsets are what set them apart, and also the hex depth. I think that the B44 wheels have a narrower offset then the 22-4 wheels but they make up that offset on the car with a wider 10MM hex. Also the b44 uses a 10MM hex, and the 22-4 uses the 12mm hex. I can't really tell you the difference with the ZX6 though.

On a different note, can anyone lay down a parts list to update a V3 car to the V4? I appreciate the help.

Has anyone had trouble with the rear gearbox insert braking which in turn helps the bulkhead break I am now contemplating whether to get the aluminium insert or the brass weight insert, I use shorty lipos so I can use more weight but is it any good to have the weight so far back as opposed to inside the wheelbase?

Cant say I've had problems with inserts or bulkhead, but I've always ran the alloy inserts and brass skidplate. As your thinking the brass weight inserts can only add some strength but the skidplate plus inserts would be better. It puts the weight below the chasis. Also the further back the weight is the greater effect it has on reducing some of the cars twitchy nature.
