I used a racer edge aluminum servo horn from the start, I never trust plastic ones unless I have to.

Thanks for the heads up--I have placed one in my wish list! I know people have asked about spares so let me ask once again . . .

What spares do I need? I have the aluminum FR & FF hinge braces already. Thanks everyone!

for spares I would recommend probably just some extra castor and steering blocks for the front end. Apart from the plastic suspension blocks included with the R version, every else is pretty robust.

Awesome! Thanks so much for making this happen. People I told were amazed that you guys stocked the Durango and parts. I gave Jess all the credit and explained that he is just ahead of the times!

As of yesterday A Main had the alloy front blocks in stock. It said low stock last I checked. Of course I got my order placed, so I'll be back in action shortly!

How does that compare with an LRP X-12? I've never been clear on the differences between Orion, LRP, Tekin, SP, Novak, Castle, etc. I just stick with LRP motors because it's what I started with and they've always worked well for me. Plus I'm a big fan of German engineering (drive a 2006 M5 - man's most perfect creation, other than Adriana Lima).

I always use Kyosho diff oils. Anyone know if their weighting system is the same as Losi?

X-12's run hotter than all the motors you listed, the LRP motors also cog under a heavy load and eat bearings like they are candy, but they are also a very fast motor when working right...

Kyosho and Losi oils--Not even on the same planet, unfortunately.

Someone actually tested all the different oils with a rheometor. It's because of this study that I asked about the oil brands. The biggest issue is that anyone can put fluid in a bottle and call it "30wt". The only true rating is CST.

Example: Losi 27.5 is the same as AE 25 but in CST both of those are 300!

Does anyone know the length of the LRP motor in mm?
