I wouldent suggest it, you would have to shim quite a few things. Just go with the shorter packs and and you wont have to worry about it. The epic 4200's, LRP 4800's, Flight power dark series 4650's and there are quite a few more.

31mm is too tall.
The max height is not limited by the battery strap. It's limited by the height of the center shaft, and slipper. The batts must fit below them.

In Durango the oil has less effect than in 1/8 scale so don't be afraid to test different oils with big change in thickness. Also keep the front/rear ratio reasonable as usikng 20k front and 5k rear would lead to a twitchy/nervous rear and issues on ornering when trasiting from on to off throttle and back.
Thank you

I am going to run a lrp esc and a 7.5 speed passion and on the really big tracks that I race on I am going to put a 4.0 in there just to get some laughs but it will be so much motor

the low turn brushless motors are not a good choice offroad IMO. They have crazy top end and push featherweight TC's around but they run run really hot off-road. They just don't have the tq to push them around in the dirt. Also you just bought the heaviest 4whl buggy on the market. It's really gonna run hot.

Pffft..... with all due respect. I'm running a 4.5t tekin w/mmp & 17t pinion and the hottest my rango got during the 4hr enduro is 150ish motor & 140ish esc.
The key imo is a heatsink & fan on the esc.

The reason why they are out of stock is because they are re-designing them. If u keep an eye on the crunch spacers and do not tighten the wheel nuts very tight ( replace wheel nuts periodically ) you shouldn't have a problem with the inner ring of the spindle coming loose.

Unfourtunately I don't have any more spindles and I don't know where to get them here in the states.
