Hope you have a fantastic Christmas and get the buggy out to the track soon after!
thanks for the reply.

Yes, running ESC timing advance "Boost" with the Tekin ESC on Murfdogg Motor; Also ran factory recommended ESC timing advance settings on several other top brand motors. Glad to share any ESC/Motor/Buggy setup seeting that I run and definietly welcome any feedback of adjustments that may work better. It's all about having fun and helping each other to do the same...tends to turn out for some great racing on the track and healthy competition.

So IP's,Venom's, SMC's, Track Power's, Orion's, Racer's Edge, all fit well. I'm glad there's a good selection of packs to choose from.


How about springs? Is it ideal to get the set or are the dark and light green springs work well on most indoor clay tracks? My local tracks are LRH, WCRC, OCRC.

That seems to be a great question, as I've only had my Durango for a week and absolutely love driving this car..it is so fun to drive! I use Dark green/3 hole/40wt Losi up front and Light green/3 hole/30wt Losi on rear, the car drives exceptionally well on a packed topsoil/clay mix track both in damp and dry conditions. All the setups I've looked at are each a little different. I've even seen a few guys running the blue srings that come with the kit and do extremely well. I'd check out the local track and see how the fast guys have things setup for their track and go from there.

Is there a colored weight chart for Durango springs? Also, can someone post or reference a pic that shows where they're mounting "home made" weights. There's definitely not much real estate to work with on this chassis.

Get the lead stick on weights and attach them where the actual ones from Durango would bolt to on the rear U Brace

Default Mental notes on the DEX410R

Here's what I got so far with a few questions after some of em:

10.5 gearing- start at 21/87, depends on the track (13.5-start 24/87)
Tekin RS Pro- use boost with reserved mechanical timing on Murfdoggs
Wheels- B44 wheels work if you cut down the pin. Do they change the width (same offset, different spacers required)?
Steering- don't use sub-trims, I understand why. Does standard trim work the same, electronically?
Steering- I saw a collar fix that might extend the life of the stock servo saver. Any feedback?
Steering- at minimum, get the aluminum front/front brace for durability
Springs- start with stock, lighten as necessary for your track.
Weights- to settle the back end use rear weights or 1* rear hubs (r/l marks face forward not back). Track dependent. Taming your servo or smoother driving does too. (9-11 transit and at least 150 torque should be enough)
Diff leaks- replace stock x-rings with Kyosho P5 o-rings.
Drivelines- replace roll pins with solid ones (part#?). Use loctite wisely. Lube, shrink wrap, and use boots.
Drivelines- keep them silky smooth at all times! You will heat up and loose the diff collar.
Slipper- its there to protect the drivetrain. Sensored systems feel safe but do nothing when you land jumps on-power or on the brakes. Use the slipper!

I'm sure there's tons of tips and tricks being used but these ones stand out for me. Sometimes not having parts at the track or coming from the B44 promotes some really creative fixes. I love this stuff!

I use subrim on all my cars and never any issues and surely don`t believe that is the cause of the few servo saver problems . I believe there are 8 or 9 Rangos at my track now , which all use subtrim and no issues .

How tight are you guys running your servo saver nut against the spring? Should it be flush?
