Default ball cups angled

Does anyone make a hooked ball end that will work with the tc5 ball studs AND one that won't pop off easily as the factory durango ball ends do?

Thanks for any help.
JCONCEPTS makes them

Hey guys, a friend told me the Associated Spur Gears fit the 410 but I busted out a brand new 81 last night only to find out the center hole is too small. Checked all my Associated spurs and it was the same issue.

Is there a specific Associated spur that I'm missing or are the Durango 410 Spurs unique?

The hole does need to be enlarged slightly. RW Racing, RDRP and TD spurs are the only direct fit, that I know of.

at least you will not break any front arms or shock shafts going down the straits!

Just ordered one of these, been wanting a 1/10 4WD buggy for a long time. It was either this or the new B44.2. Liked the alum chassis and gear diffs.

Tired of bending Team Durango front and rear inboard hinge pins? Ya, me too. I actually ran out at an indoor race last winter season and was faced with a dilema... straighten the pin and put it back and hope for the best? .... or.... hmmmm..... here I have this Integy 2.0mm allen driver tool with a busted tip.... and its hardened... and its ti-nitride coated. Let me just cut one up and jam it in and maybe that will work?
I just did a full teardown last Friday night. I had three bent durango inboard hinge pins, and one nice straight golden ti-nitride coated Integy pin made from my busted driver. Its been to three carpet races and two outdoor dirt races. I know whats going back in the car. Good thing I saved all those broken tips!!!

Never broken/bent a single hinge pin myself still running my 2+ year old ones.

but great idea! I will have to keep that in mind when I want to replace mine. I bet some good quality drill bit blanks would work decent too.

Yup, ditto, never one problem in about a year, and I crash all-the-time!

Aluminum Chassis is not me preference but I really love the design and layout of this 4WD as compared to others. It's very compact and neat but surprisingly heavy. I aim to get a CF Chassis for it as soon as the aluminum is scuffed up enough that it bothers me, possibly even sooner.

I'm looking for some setup help. The problem I'm looking to get rid of is mid corner to exit, on power my car has a tendency to want to over steer instead of squaring up and powering out. I find myself counter steering because It just continues to rotate. I have played with diff oils a lot and have found I prefer lighter oils because when ever I go 10k or higher it makes the car to twitchy for me. My set up right now is 5k front 3k rear
Front
Long link 2 mm washer on knuckle
Middle on tower stock caster blocks
Inside lower hole on tower for shock position
Out side hole on arm
Rear
Middle on 1* hubs
Inside lower on tower
Inside arms with 2 mm in front and 1 mm in rear
Hubs forward
3 right side up on toe insert
2nd hole from top on shock tower for the shock
Inside hole on arm
