Make sure the battery strap is mounted on the upper hole on the rear diff ring holder thingy

And that battery is 25mm right?

Yeah, it's 25mm. Specs at AMain.

Gotit. The rear pin was in the bottom hole. Thanks Grapejuice! Downside to not building it myself... I'm an idiot for the first month of maintenance. I'll learn the build a little more when I go through the diffs and drivelines.

I've had this car a lot longer than you. It's far from perfect. I've had to figure out a lot of these issues and for a $350 kit with this many issues and poor customer support it's left a bad taste in my mouth. Up untill last night in about 8 months I've been able to get 2 hours of run time on it. I believe people have a right to know both sides of the story with this car. The ONLY reason I've held on to it this long is because of the way it drives.

I FINALLY got this thing running. I ran two quals that were AWESOME and I was pacing for 3rd in the main and I lost it at the end of the straight. I got plowed by a b44 at full speed and it broke my rear bulkhead. Not a big deal, I got the aluminum diff wedges and a bulkhead set. I also needed to change my diff seals and fluids wich I was planning on doing.

I open my rear bulkheads and it has two right sides in it, no joke.

seems like I can't win. I'll call HRP tomorrow to see if they can get me another one. If not, I think my track has one in stock.

Poor car is sitting with no rear end. I want to go out and get some wheel time on it, finally.


I think that b44.1 is going to another home.

I hear ya bud... I had nothing but GREAT luck with mine... then this past weekend when it all mattered... NOTHING but problems. 3 diffs, two rear bulkhead's, and a cv shaft.

I am thinking about selling and going with the Losi when it comes out...

Durango has solid pins available. I've been using them for weeks with no problems.

I think one problem people are overlooking is simple. This car is the Ferrari of RC cars and does require attention to keep it running its best. If you treat it like a chevy, your going to have problems.

I've made it almost a ritual to check my car completely after every heat. I check the driveline and make sure everything spins smooth. If there's slop in certain places to get it shimmed. I replaced my x rings with P5 seals so no more leaks but I do take the diffs out, inspect, and re-shim if needed every 3 runs.

To be honest I'm damn near a complete idiot when it comes to RC cars. But somehow I've manage to have VERY little problems with my durango. Its by far the best car I've ever owned!

One thing that is great is here locally, EVERYONE helps each other and I think it shows as the number of DNF's and problems is far and few in between here at our track.

With the wealth of knowledge on this forum we solved a lot of problems.

I'm sure something can be said expressing frustrations for any racing platform available. They all seem to have their outstanding qualities and a few weaknesses. So far, I'm absolutely pleased with the Durangos overall qualities and hope to continue exploiting its strengths. Just an absolute fun car to drive over others I've owned/raced.

I have a 410R with all 4 aluminum hinge pin holders and tons of parts. Divorce has hit me hard and I need money bad. It has P5 orings and the diff's never leak. I run AE wheels but I have the parts to go back to the stock rims. I'll throw in a full set of Pink tapers and DD's. I'll post a list of parts tomorrow. All for just $375.00. $10.00 shipping to the US.

I don't really have any outside the norm problems either. In the 10+ months I had a front hub problem and now a brand new two run old axle pin break. So far so good. This is still a relatively new car, it still needs to be worked out...

Everyone needs to read what David said here...this car still requires maintenance....it's a 4wd so it requires a bit more attention then anything else, six cvds instead of two, two diffs instead of one...get the car working right and keep it that way!!

I had such a fun time racing mine this last wednesday, so easy to drive and fun too!!

I think some might not think they need to keep up with maintenance as much since there are no ball diffs . Buggy runs great if you take care of it .
