Good to know.... and whats funny, is we are all told that when we first started racing and yet none of us do it... lol.

But yes, replace them with different ballcups and ballstuds... the stock ones wear out (pop off) quite quickly.

Default turnbuckles

Appreciate the tips on turnbuckles and glad to hear guys like the stock ends... will use this when rebuilding them this week.

Yeah, I do not do it either! Ha-ha!! I really like the design of the stock with the access to the ball ends. If I did replace them I would drill through them to mimic the TD design . . .

The DEX410 2010 Spec kit has NO ISSUES with what so ever, only thing is kind of pricey, but its built like an 8th scale in a 10th scale size. Some things you want to have spares of are DIFF RING GEARS, PLASTIC 0 shaped HOUSING. IF you build the servo saver correctly and use thread lock you will be fine, I hear all kinds of bizzare stories of people having servo issues, and I cant relate. I from the get go did use a LOSI alloy servo horn though on my 150 dollar airtronics digi servo lol.. Now as far as ballstuds, use some white losi grease as put it on the threads of the titanium turnbuckles when you first build the car. It will help loads later on with adjusting... I have no problems with the car its awesome and I love it.... I just need to know if the NEW DIFF RING GEAR METAL IN GOLD is hype or fact........ GOODLUCK WITH UR DURANGO U WILL LOVE IT..

Anybody convert one of these into a truggy? The 10th scale truggy class is taking off at my local track and I am not a big fan of Ofna.

Post #3392, its not real

This is a real CF Chassis. Though I doubt it has ANY flex at all

I'm guessing it's not but it is possible, one of the team drivers and current WC had some made that still uses the side pods, he said you have to use the aluminum pods because there is too much flex with the plastic ones.

this car would be perfect if it had a carbon fiber chassis, and some ball diffs. oh wait then it would be a b44.
