Anybody running internal shock limiters? I was going to try and limit travel according to the Hupo setup to see if I liked it . . .

I run 3-4 I think in the front shocks, helps on power steering.

one of his setups he was running the front shocks in the inside hole on the arm. When doing so you need to run limiters in the shock to get back to the original droop compared to when running the shocks on the outside hole.

Do the diffs in the durangos need to be rebuilt as often as the kyoshos? I am wondering how maintenance is on this car compared to others

Get the P5 orings and you should be squared away for quite some time.

Thye are planetary (geared) diffs like an 1/8th scale. You change the fluids (takes 10 mins for each diff), then you are done.

I just rebuilt my front and rear diffs.. I put 5K in the front and 2K in the rear. I also replaced the idler pinion gear that messes with the diff gear front and rear. Installed the rear with no issues what so ever was done in 10minutes... but the front is another story.... I had issues with it seating correctly and when I did sit it correctly and attached the top case if I tighten the 3 screws and turn the output gear with my hand its gritty as shit, almost like the mess is too tight... both gears in case are new so its not adding up to me.... will it wear in or should I take it apart again?

also a sway bar in the front would remove steering and add rear traction correct?

I would rebuild it, take out some shims on the ring gear side and move it over to the cup side.
Yes, it will eventually wear in, but you will most like have chewed up the ring gear long before it does (my guess is your diff will not last more than a couple of packs.). This poor mesh will also cause heat in both motor and esc.

IMO, the R spec, is a very well designed and excellent performing car. The "Full" Spec is a work of art.

Once you do the mods to the diffs. ie kyosho O rings etc. Then the diff really only needs to be rebuilt if you want to change the oils...
