I've got the hubs in the mail. Are you guys running the rear weights? If so, which ones? I'm running box stock at the moment and the rear is pretty loose on a medium traction clay track.

I've got 10k/5k in the diffs, but haven't had a chance to play with shock oils as of yet. Can't wait until Friday to get this thing dialed in a bit, but it's amazing.

Mount the shaft in a drill chuck carefully and get some 320 wet sand paper. That will get you the best finish without a lathe.

Which I have in my garage if you would like me to turn it down for you.
so what was the verdict on this? I am in the process of building my kit, let me know before I screw something up!

Is anyone noticing the 410 seems to always need new tires compared to the 410R?

I wonder if the chasis flex helps as the tires scub off and provide a more consistant feel?

It seems that either my setup or driving style necessitates new rubber

Check to see if it fits through the bearings first. The word on the street is if they do not you can buy the replacement for $2 and somehow that fits. I just used a lathe and basically took the coating off the one that came in the box.

Are you building right now? I will hopefully have mine done by next weekend. I already have too many wires in mine. Grapejuice has a clean setup. What electronics are you gonna run?

Here's the info for the Hutch race. http://www.rctech.net/forum/kansas-m...lyer-info.html

I hope to have my Durango next weekend. I'm anxious to do some testing on the super bite clay.

The RS is pretty small right? I know you will need a small receiver! I am wondering if I should have got a 7.5? I will not make it this Wednesday but definitely the next . . .

nope the bearing isn't fitting...

I have a spektrum 3000 reciever.... how small of a receiver do I need

And we'll see, you're 8.5 still might kick my rear end around the track

Well, you can try the drill and sand paper trick or ask Justin if they sell the new one and if he knows if it fits.

What is the smallest receiver Spektrum sells and the smallest ESC Tekin has ever made! You might want to get both of those. I dunno really because I run Futaba and Novak. I lucked out getting those things in there. They would not have fit if I did not find that Timmy Tweaks carbon radio tray.

Do you run the plastic chassis braces? I would. I am not surprised if one could burn through a set of tires in a week with this car. Are you spinning a lot? What motor do you run?

That is it and that is all. Have you built the diffs yet? Be sure to follow the Oople article while you build. Also have the Team-Durango site up as well. Look at those things they have listed "In the Pits." Take your time with the diffs. Use plenty of Green Slime and be slow putting on the main gears to the out drives.

sounds good, I always build my diffs with lots of grease! I already broke the plastic thing that goes over the CVD to protect the pin from coming out....It's where the CVD and driveshaft meet and theres a pin in there, does that make sense I don't think its a big deal... but I still broke it. How did you guys get those on there, it was freakin hard for the first one which luckily didnt break
