I do this now and my pins stay true, the one I pulled out I thought was good was slightly bent meaning fine camber and toe adjustments were not accurate.
I'm hoping Durango releases hardened hinge pins.
3mm hard steel dowel pins from McMaster-Carr work great and are cheap. People have been using these for a long time on the DESC410R SCT truck. Also, the stock outer rear hinge pins are weak on this car. RC8 outer rear hinge pins are a drop-in replacement and they are much stronger.

as we all know its not the lightest buggy on the market?

I would imagine a full cf chassis would be slightly lighter with a bit more flex. It would most likely work very well on rough surfaces. How thick are they?, 4mm?

Im just wondering, what are the essential spares or hop up parts I should get for this?

Im guessing:

Front A Arms
Spare Spur Gears
Clutch Pads
Shock O Rings

Anything Else?

Any essential mods I should get?

Ill be running in 4WD Stock with a Trinity D3 17.5 motor, HW Xerun 2.1 60amp ESC and steering will be done via a SAVOX 1257TG.

Pretty much the same electrics as the 22SCT in my Sig.

Appreciate the help fellas!
Front and rear arms
Rear Hub Carrier (Very weak)
Outer hinge pin (Very wear I reccommend get the lunsfornd Titanium hinge pins)

Tresrey says to use the aluminum side pods with the carbon chassis, but I wonder how much flex it would have if it was ran with the plastic pods. Could possibly be a good option for a loose track with minor jumps.

You have to run the Aluminum sides, feel free to run the plastic sides and when the center shaft pops out you'll know why. Without the sides you can twist the car in your hands with little efffort.

The CF chassis is 4mm and works well on rough tracks as well as high bite clay tracks. Almost all the Tresrey drivers run the CF chassis over the aluminum. In fact I might be the only one running a AL DEX410. I do have a complete CF roller ready for this season though

Hell, I've popped the center shafts out with the stock chassis and plastic pods. Maybe I need the aluminum pods...

Or run the V1 slipper setup. Why Durango screwed with the center shaft setup I have no clue. Good thing my V1 is dialed!

Do tell. I didn't know there was a difference. I'm also wanting the two-way slipper that's on the website, but they haven't released any details about it.

But are you gonna get permission to race? The Unser track is pretty sweet and plenty big for Wheeler!

I am running the atomic carbon conversion. I like it. It's strong and light and there is more room. It takes like 2months to get though as they are made to order and they aren't cheap.

i have the 8-carbon chassis and was running it with the plastic side pods. i didn't have any issue with the drive shaft popping out. (knock on wood)

if you do that and use a shorty pack, you should really be able to knock off 150~200g off the overall chassis weight.
