i read several hundred pages ago that the red threadlock supplied in the kit is garbage, can anyone confirm or deny this? i used it in my build and dont want all my res threadlocked grub screws to come undone, is this gonna be a concern?

Wouldn't say its garbage, but its more like a Blue threadlock. Get some aftermarket RED to be sure and redo your CVD's and set screws to be sure.

Thanks for the advice. Durango's don't have the best rep here and would hate to dnf on my first outing. The kit went together amazingly. It has been my favorite build to date, it is a piece of art!

Also make sure you use two grubscrews, this will ensure the cvd pin does not bend when tightening the grub screws.

Have never used two on either the truck or buggy but a little insurance won't hurt.

I also use a wax Lube on the cvd's to keep them smooth without attracting dust like grease does (http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Lubricant-4oz )

Mod motors on high grip tracks with big jumps puts a lot of strain on the transmission. I also run the djoints, as these run a lot cooler than the centre shafts, heatshrink over the joints as well to add more insurance against pins coming out.

Default Avid springs

Has anyone tried with any success the Avid springs? And if so has anyone come up with a conversion table to compare the rates to Team Durango springs?

Thanks,

From your guys experience, will it be a problem to have my cap touching the motor?

Then compare the rates to the info i found at Avidrc.com...

Spring Rates (Batch2) front
White: Rate: 2.79lb
Yellow: Rate: 3.23lb
Red: Rate: 3.42lb
Purple: Rate: 3.79lb

Spring Rates (Batch2) rear
White: Rate: 1.96lb
Yellow: Rate: 2.15lb
Red: Rate: 2.29lb

Keep in mind Avid sold batch 1 sets with different rates, so make sure which ones you are using, the rates are considerably different. I use the batch one springs on my 210. I like them.

Visit avid's site for more info if you want batch 1 specs.

Edit: looks like they updated the Petitrc list. It now includes Avid spring rates.
I use Purple fronts and Red rears. Works really well on the outdoor tracks I run at. Have not tried them indoors yet but I feel they should be fine.

Sym...your cap will be fine there...just make sure you leave enough room to move your motor in when you install a smaller pinion.

I just got my hands on a v3 since I wanted to try some 1/10 4wd, coming from a primarily 1/8 scale racing background. Decided on a Durango because it looks like an 1/8 scale and will hopefully drive like a scaled down version. Also, from what I've read is more durable than the b44.2 or the xb4, and I like gear diffs. It's like the best of the b44.2 and xb4 but with durability

Anyway, I have 2 questions
  1. Can you set the slipper like a 2wd 1/10 scale? Hold the wheels down hit the throttle and make sure the front wheels only raise 2-3 inches? Or should I just run the 8.5 mm distance as recommended in the manual?
  2. I run primarily at WCRC. I am starting with Jorn's 2012 Reedy race setup as a baseline. I will get to drive it tomorrow. Anyone try this exact setup yet? Is it good for normal human drivers? Only reason I ask is because the 2 hole/45wt front and the 3 hole/30 wt rear makes the damping seem really heavy (at least on the bench). I guess I will find out tomorrow.

Mounting electronics in this car is a joke. Can somebody post a pic of their electronics install with a Tekin RS PRO?
