Yes, it is. 20 should be better
Vent the body, it really is not an option if you want the temps to go down.

I run 85/22 with my 6.6 Tresrey V3 motor and my temps haven't been above 170. Granted I have one of those neat Gainabull bodies, but that couldn't be the difference could it?

85 or 87/22? I also run the Tresrey body and it does make a difference in temps.

If you can get it the V3 hands down.

It will cost you more to upgrade the RV3 to the V3 if you decide to, although you can see durangos top driver uses the small bore shocks, that can save you some $$

Default This past weekend...

I finally got to run a race day with my Durango and it was a blast.

Round 1
The wheelers didn't show up in the numbers we expected, but we got enough for our own class. One guy ended up breaking and couldn't finish the day. So it was me vs. my good friend. He is a much better driver but the DEX410 gave his XX4 the business. It was pretty cool because there is a big triple that I make, no worries about breaking, and he doesn't. I kept making ground when he was in front, or adding to my lead when I was. Unfortunately my ESC hit thermal and it was all over with only 28 seconds left to the round.

Round 2
Still trying to figure this one out, as it happened in the main too, but I stripped my spur gear out. The mesh seemed fine.

A-Main
When checking in I flipped upside down, yelled out to warn other drivers, and proceeded to have a ST land right on top of me. (The RD combined classes when we were down to two). Everything seemed fine from the drivers stand except my wing appeared to be smashed/bent. We take off and after two laps the XX4 broke. After the race was done, I realized that I finished the whole race with a broken rear bulkhead, which explains the goofy looking wing. On the last lap my spur let go again so I still need to figure out whats going on there.

All in all I'm still happy, even having to replace parts...

Man, I wish I could come up with a good reason as to why you are stripping spurs. Is the screw that connects the motor plate to the plastic mount tight? Can the assembly twist at all? And if your bearings are good I can not imagine why your spur is stripping. Beyond me!

Quick question regarding assembly. I noticed there are 2 different types of ballcups (not including the sway bar mini ones).

One is slightly curved, and a bit longer, but I dont see where to use these in the diagram. I am guessing the rear arm attached to the hub?

From looking at the diagram, they all look flat. Probably not a big deal, but I just cant figure out where they go, if anywhere.

some guy is probably at home putting a 210 together wondering were his ball cups are
fairly sure all the 410 ones are straight
think the 210 has slightly curved ones

The mold tree is the same for the v3 and 210 . You do not use the curved ends for the V3 .

Without more information... I would guess that you aren't snugging down your motor screws enough, and the motor is backing itself out just a tad as you run around the track, and bzzzzzz!!!! stripped spur.
