Can anyone with a DEx410R fit a 16t pinion on? Because the smallest that i can fit on is 18t.

Started my build last night,and i must say so far so good really smooth so far,i didnt like how tight the big gears go on the diff gears i think it will be a nightmare to pull that off in the future the review on oople was spot on very tight fit and its a must to have the gear flush for smooth diff action,another part of the review was spot on with the center shafts the plastic cover for the pin its really smart to shave those a tad inside so its easier to slide them on..i only got to step 8 so far really took my time and will continue to...i think my next step its the shock towers...my fav part of any build is the shocks,and ive built prolly 5 1/8 scale kits so this 10th scale is so so small kinda weird but im adjusting ive always had my buddies do my 10th kits but i wanted to tackle this one.....anyways more to come!!

well i spent a few more hours on my build last night,next up is the steering rack and servo,the one thing that i dont like is the manual coloring its very hard to see the fine details of the plastic in the pictures specially the black..other than that everything is going smooth lets hope it stays that way lol...i cant stress enuff how important it is to read the review it has some very good tips that can save you problems in the long run....anyways i should have it done this weekend sometime,hopefully the body will be off today to the paint man... ohhh and my orion saddle showed up today,im like a kid in a candy store!!!

No, I presume you are going down in pinion because of motor heat? With a 9.5 turn, I am at 160 with a 20 tooth.

Nah, i was told by a fellow rango owner (he uses a full spec rango) that a 16t would be a good starting point for a 5.5. So went to put a 16 on but i still had about another 0.5mm to 1mm before the mesh was right. Abit weird that he can use a 16t on his full spec but i can't on my R spec He uses a LRP x12 5.5, which i think are meant to run abit hotter than other brands, so i Should be safe running a 18t with my SP 5.5

Sooo... all of the R guys running 25mm lipos, do they drop right in? I have the Pro-Tek 5200 45C saddle pack and I'm going to have to shave the battery brace. Anybody else run into this issue?

edit: I've measured both and they're 25.0xmm

D@mn it! That's the battery that I just ordered. The Durango guys should have given us more clearance as there aren't a lot of saddle pack options under 25mm.

It fits, but as you can see it deforms the brace, and makes putting the body clip in a PITA. It also slightly contacts the plastic ring on the drive shaft.

^I lied it fits fine, I was using the wrong hole on the rear hinge of the brace.

On another note, and I the only one that can't get the pin for the spur/slipper cover to slide all the way through?
