Has anyone tried boiling the servo saver to see if that helps?

To soften it up? There's plenty of flex in Durango plastics.

another race day came an went and my durango yet again out performed itself!! The car is freaking amazing!!! Only thing I have funny, I find I chew up the metal diff ring gear while running a 5.0T in my car... They must use a cheap metal or something.. Cuz my idler gear stays true, the ring gear gets chipped.... and I have it spaced perfectly.. I guess running a 5.0T and driving hard at 150degrees does that! ahah

Tell me about it. I was at the track practicing yesterday and nose-dived short on a triple and had the front drive shaft pop out. The nose of the Rango flexes quite a bit. If you hit it just right you can have the same thing happen.

I almost wonder if I left a screw out last time I pulled the front diff out...

I have only had that happen once... but I landed square on a pipe and could SEE the car flex.

I had the same thing happen, three times with a tekin 13.5 setup. I had to shim the rear diff so tight it felt a bit crunchy between the pinion and spur. There is flex in the rear case or something. Since I over shimmed it I haven't destroyed a gear again.

I added a turnbuckle between the front bulkhead and rear radio tray screw hole. It helps the front driveshaft stay in considerably and still allows torsional flex for traction.

Same here, although I haven't run on any large, rough, 1/8th scaleish tracks yet.

Your slipper tight? Possibly too much brake....I have my brake turned down quite a bit.

I dont use drag brag at all programmed in my LRP... If anything I am thinking its because I hammer it while the car is flying in the air ahah.. If the slipper was too loose that would cause that no? Yea mine seems tight, it only slips for a half inch if anything lol

I meant push brake, I have mine on 1 on my sxx and it's turned down on the radio too, drag brake at 0. And running the slipper tight puts A LOT of strain on the drive train especially with a 5.0t. Also, with hammering it in the air and landing on power with a tight slipper w/ a 5.0t....sounds like gear destruction to me
