Here are some pics of my new shell for the Durango. Thank you Mel for this work of art. Now I will be motivated to build the rest of the car!

I find it alot tailly/nervous compared to other 4wd's I've driven/own.

have tried lengthening rear camber link, 50grams on top of lipos, softer rear oil and springs, doesn't seem to have changed much however. Running 20k/5k diff oils.
As others have suggested, you may want to go down in the front diff. I run 10k front and 5k rear with rear hubs all the way forward. I have tried many shock setups, but have yet to think any of them made the car nervous. Very planted but still turns on a dime.

Adding weights on top is just raising the center of gravity and will make the car drive worse...Try mounting them next to the lipo where the durango side weights go.

Just to balance the car out a bit, it was designed for NIMH....it helped the rear end a little when I added the side weights, look a little of the steering out too which helped as well. I don't feel it needs more then those.

I have only read in this thread that some were using the grey Losi ball cups. I have also read the Durango stocks were questionable. I will try the stock and see what happens and then look to see what else fits. I used to run the RPM stuff on the AE's I had but was still a noob.

The losi one's won't work, they're a bit too small. I thought someone posted some RPM ballcups that were sized for the Durango studs?

Not sure since I will be using Lunsford 3mm "Punisher" Ti tie rods. The RPM will certainly fit those! I bought the 1 x 3/4" tie rods which are slightly longer than the stock 43mm but should work just fine.

I meant the losi ball cups are too small for the durango ball studs, sorry for the confusion. I think RPM does make some ball cups that will fit the stock durango ball studs.

Whoops! I get you now. I would honestly try the RPM cups first but do not know which ones to try.

Weird, I have the stock ballcups and not a single problem. I think the first production ball cups were better than the ones with the 410R. Even Grapejuice raided my spare supplies

Looking to finish up my setup on Wed. so I'll post up the results!

Horse Power has arrived. According to the gearing chart I used a 87-20 combo should be a pretty good place to start. Anyone disagree ? ? ?
