good question... I also would like to know.

What ball cups fit the stock turnbuckles AND ball joints. I'm only interested in replacing the ball cups.

thanks

I "think" someone posted that these will work with the stock studs and turnbuckles. For $5 it's worth a try

Guys,

I had a durability test this weekend! Not enough 4wd's showed up and since it was raining, the 1/8th scale electrics ran on the indoor track. I was able to out qualify them in rounds 1 and 2 of qualifying, but they played "pinball" with the durango in the 3rd qualifier. Amazing that after MUCH abuse, the car suffered no damage! Nearly lapped the field in the main, this car is DIALED!

Yeah, i got stuck with one of the 8th scale mains once cuz all the 4wd guys left... and i ended up taking 3rd out of 9 with a 13.5!

But yes, they manhandled me and i walked away with a tweaked rear tower!

I recently ran my new durango dex410r w/ aluminum upgrades @ ocrc raceway in southern ca. and all I can say is the buggy's a blast. The only gripe i have is the ball cups on my steering turnbuckles keep popping out even on minor crashes. Any remedy for this like using different types of ball cups or something else?

atm i'm using losi ball cups with with ae ball studs and they seem to be working alright but because this car is alot heavier than other 1/10 buggies i think its always going to pop ball cups easier than most buggies.

its been over 7 years so please correct me if I am wrong with this philosophy or general rule of thumb concerning sway bars..


sway bar in rear: adds steering removes rear traction

sway bar in front: adds rear traction removes steering




thanks guys... I got the 2010 spec completely dialed without the use of swaybars, now I am pondering the idea to play with them to see if it can get even better and see FULL potential of this vehicle!

Wait until you have to pull that gear out of the diff housing! I am not sure why the spur would give you trouble but maybe someone will chime in. Once the set screw is removed would you not have to unthread that collar? Sorry if I am stating the obvious . . .
