True the slop is there in the front end. A lot of it but when I'm running I don't even notice anything that hampers performance.

My fellow durango driver has placed some o-rings in certain spots (not sure where but ill ask) to take out that slop. I will ask him next time I'm out there.

LoL...Where is that B44 guy who made a big stink about the B44 a few pages back, these things always happen at the wrong time

Try trading it on the for sale thread bro. Im sure you'll get some hits.

+1 on the Avid bearing kit for the Durango..they work awesome and spin seems like forever.
-1 on the AK47........It is the cheapest one to make in the world though with all stamped parts

Wow...that would be way over geared for the motors I've used, even on a 80 ft. straightaway. Currently run a 24 tooth pinion on a 13.5T Murfdogg Synergy. Truly not wanting to disagree, but to each his own and probably has alot to do with motor brand, ESC programing, track layout and ambient temperature. Motors would never get above 150 degrees and performs exceptionally well.

I think the kv rating is a bit elevated on those murfdog motors. Everything I have read says they need to be geared much more like a mod motor than a superstock. My temps are right around 150-155 after a 6 min race. Geared with the 32 pinion gear. Tekin motor and esc.

thanks!

Anyone else having a problem with the pins that hold the front hexes on sticking in the hexes? I'm trying to remove the pins so I can replace a wheel bearing and there is no way these things are coming out. Am I missing something?

Thanks

Ok, where is everyone gearing their 13.5 cars for an indoor track say 85ft straight?

I'm looking to hit the track for some quick testing to see what the hype is on this class? I've NEVER ran such a low powered motor in a 4wd car before ! LOL

Did you use something to keep the pin from falling out?

I put a tiny smear of Blue lactate on my front and rear pins.. and I mean tiny-enough to hold them in. But easy to tap out and remove when needed..
Ditch roll pins if people are still using them! they snap..

Well I know it was totally wrong gearing but on the tekin website the guy running a 10.5 in his Durango ran it with a 22 so thats what I did made all the settings the same as his and let me tell you what a mistake I am lucky I didnt cook the motor and ESC both came off at 170+. But now I am going to run a 7.5 with a 23 tooth pinion as pure what the site comeseethis says to run and thanks again for the link to that site guys. They are making a new track down here the strait is going to be 120 feet long and its a indoor track It opens on the 28th I am very excited about it it is going to be about 3 times the size of the 1 we have now
