I hear the Tekin RS runs very hot in the Durango--I would definitely go with the RS Pro if Tekin is your brand.
Thanks,

Yes I race at the local tracks and will be running the sportsman class so pretty much anything goes. I thought the only difference with the pro was that a lower turn motor could be run...How does the pro run cooler? The price difference is not going to kill me, just would like to know.

the Pro runs cooler because it has another layer of FETs. There's not alot of airflow over the electronics in the Durango, go with the Pro. You might only be running a 10.5 now, but if you ever want to go with a hotter motor, you'll need the Pro.

Or get it right and just get an LRP TC spec

Either car you choose you'll be happy.

Option #1 buy the spec and you're done! Just get a aluminimun servo arm and stock up on tires

Option #2 buy the R and you'll need to buy aluminum braces, bushings, aluminum rear diff housing holder/brace (the plastic will brake in time)

Optional parts: P5 seals (this is almost a must) and bearings (I use blue seal and they work perfect for $12 bucks). Depending on the track the wieght set as well.

I have a spec and would certainly buy one again.

I personally use an RS. I do run a 13.5, but I am a very on/off driver do my components do get warm. But- I have never seen my RS get over 3 LEDs. I will be running my 8.5 for a few weeks, so I will let you know, but I don't see a problem as long as you built the car correctly and cut out the vents

Any way, I am looking at the Tekin combos. Would there be any reason to get the RS "pro" if I am only running a 10.5?
Also, is a 10.5 enough for this buggy? (insert newby comments here).
you were only an hour away from making it work! yes it fits, the reciever has to be turned around, i used velcro. the wires plug in beside/under the spur. its tight but works fine. i even have the pain of swapping out my transponder, that is why i used velcro. been running it that way since 2 weeks after they came to america.there are pics of my car, i posted the post # on the last page back, look it up. -------- yes for indoor a 10.5 should be plenty, get a esc. that has electronic timing adjustment if you need more. my buddy was dominating the points series last winter w/ a 13.5 in mod. (he's an exceptional driver though) but had the timing set to cook! 10 min. max runtime then he had to give it a cool down. that was a b44, but the same should apply to the durango in this case. remember consistant tight lines are the fast way around the track, the strait that a low turn motor might give you an advantage is only a small portion of the track. if its hurting you everywhere else your times will be slower.

Thanks fellas!

Pro it is. Now on the servo arm....I see a lot of choices but not everyone gives the length in the specs. What arm are most of you running?

+1 on the Racer's Edge--it fits pretty well. I have not broken a plastic servo horn just stripped the teeth.

Plastic ones can strip, I always run an aluminum arm in all my cars whenever possible.

I bought the Losi arm... personally did not want the Losi one, but it works great, and the color looks good.

what saddle pack lipos are you guys running? Just curious to know what the majority of 'rango owners use.


I plan to get my 1st 4wd buggy soon and the "R" is at the top of my list.
