Yeah, the ProTek saddle packs fit but you have to make sure the batt strap is adjusted to the highest position. I also had to dremel mine just a little bit at the hinge.

The Thunder Powers do NOT fit at all, btw.

Let me know how the carbon fiber brace works. I just order the plastic set for my O.E. DEX. I want to see if I can get some more flex. If not, the car already handles mint...

I put the plastic sides on mine tonight. There seems to be alittle more flex in the chassis when I twist it. Now we will have to see how much of a difference there is on the track. They also weigh .009lbs. less than the aluminum ones. The plastic was .094 and the aluminum was .103lbs.

I broke the plastic front outer suspension brace after only a few laps. Durango needs to get their shiz together and send a batch out to A Main for us. We need the front CF shock tower too.

Haven't you heard that plastic breaks ? Why would Durango need to correct someones driving mistakes by sending free parts ? If you feel the plastic ones are too weak for "your driving style" then get the alu pieces and be done with that. If you keep the car between the pipes and not cartwheeling on full speed the parts will hold.

Regarding CF towers you can use the full spec towers. Imho the R model has more holes in tower than is needed.

Then what we've found with the plastic side rails you should use the CF rear brace as with bigger impacts or track with 1/8 scale jumps it's possible that the chassis bends so much that it can break the plastic brace.

I received my aluminum suspension mounts and front C/F shock tower yesterday, I ordered direct from Durango. I would of thought A main would have these parts in stock by now, seeing they're available.

First of all, the brace broke after landing a jump cleanly - and if you read through this thread you'll find that they are breaking like they're made of styrofoam. It's a quality issue, my friend.

Second, I never said I wanted a free one. If you had read this thread you'd see that A Main has been out of the aluminum part since the car came out and they apparently have an exclusive on Durango parts in the US for some period of time. So what I'm saying is that Durango needs to ship the more sturdy aluminum parts to A Main so we can buy them without paying the $30 overseas shipping rate.

The front CF tower is just a hop-up that I'd like to have and A Main doesn't even have it listed in their system, let alone in stock.

Finally got my R on the track yesterday and it's got a ton of steering. It turns like my 2wd. I didn't get to turn many laps before my front brace flexed and allowed the kingpin to pop out, but the stock diff fluids are too thin for a short, high traction track.

A little more traction out back, and this thing will be dialed.

edit: Do you guys use the plastic rear skid plate? It's already starting to trap a lot of dirt underneath.

edit #2: When you use the driveshaft boots do they protect the bearings on the outdrives (the ones in the diff cases)?

Try the brass rear weight, it'll make the rear more planted.
