Run them without question.

It stops "bearing crush".....in other words your bearing wont "bind" when you tighten up the wheel nuts.

Definitely, helps keep the rear-end more planted, plus the car was originally designed with NIMH batteries.

from the sound of the changes you are making, you should be close to what alot of us are running. I wouldn't worry about losing steering. I have tried alot of things and have yet to have the car push in the turns.

I ran this past weekend at my LHS, after putting on the rear weighted skid pad and almost pulled of a 18 lap qualifier, which has yet to happen on the new configuration.

Before you buy the weights... limit the rear travel with the droop screws... you wont need to spend the money!

Nice to hear, I'm going to move my hubs forward and see how it does tomorrow night.

Where are people finding the Kyosho P-5 seals for the diffs?

P5 orings have been dialed for me so far. 3 races, no issues.

So today at work they were wiggling in the door a new, small CNC machine for our model shop. AWESOME! So I will be drawing (reverse engineering) the servo saver in CAD this week. Hopefully I will have an aluminum one in no time. Not sure if I will be able to punch out a bunch of them but will make at least a few and get 'em anno'd in black. Danger Gear for the Durango. SWEET!
