I run on a very tight track and use an Orion 10.5. I use a 25 tooth pinion as well. I also use their new 45c lipos. The car is more than fast enough. Alot of people can't believe it's only a 10.5. A 9.5 would be perfect in my opinion. 22-23t to start. This way your motor won't get to hot.

I'd probably try the 21-24 range. I run 87/22 with a 6.5T x-12 and an SXX TC spec ESC with 45c/4200MAh lipos on a similar track.

You can get ideas from some of the clay setups here:

Has anyone driven both dex410 or 410r and a tamiya trf511 or 511x?

If so please share your observations, thanks in advance.

Anybody run into build issues with their R? I've run into 2 parts so far that don't fit properly. The first was the steering shaft that goes through the servo saver (#340006). It was to large in diameter for the bearings to slide over it. I threw it in the freezer for a while and managed to make due, but I think I damaged a bearing in the process (very notchy and tight steering). The second part so far is one of the front wheel hexes, it's I.D. is only 4.65mm and the axle that it slides over is 4.7mm. I guess I'll be shooting TD an email.

Yeah, I had two or three parts with the same problem. I just used a nail file to sand them down and everything fits perfectly now.

some pretty tight tolerances in areas for sure on this car......I experienced similar issues, in regards to the steering.......make sure the ackerman plate isnt rubbing against the front center cvd guide, mine wasnt fully seated around the driveshaft and was causing a bind/notchiness in my steering.......just something to check

on a side note, I had to ream the upper shock mounting holes on the rear tower as the standoffs would'n fit...........front tower holes were fine......all in all, I think this car is going to be dialed, also helps that I have setup support from a local hotshoe, his car was stupid fast last season.......I cant wait to get it on the track.

Thanks guys, so far the build has been pretty easy, not as nice as some others, but not difficult by any means. The diff gears will definitely be a PITA to replace, but everything else is very accessible.

You and me both. I just need a battery and another set of tires.

Sorry Lamar, I have to disagree. These diffs come out in like 30 seconds. Compared to my Lazer you had to take half the car apart to do them. The Durango is much better. I am rebuilding mine as we speak.........

The actual diff removal is VERY easy, removing the gears from the outdrives will suck (unless there's a trick to it).

Have any of you guys played around with the rear shims on the hub and arms? What would have a greater effect on handling. the shims on the inner hinge pin or hub? I know changing the shims on the hub change wheelbase and rear traction, and I am assuming the shims on the inner hinge pin will do the same. Am I wrong on this? Or is the inner just for wheelbase and not for traction? Thanks........

Any of you guys break the very front hingepin holder? I've destroyed 2 and another racer destroyed one by bumping a PVC pipe.

My rear diff spur also lost 3 teeth somehow, it just started clicking so I took it apart and found this.

I got a Tie-rod out of the box with no threads also.

This car is frustrating me pretty bad. I've only got 11 laps at a small indoor track. I've only put about 1700 MAH through the battery.
