Thanks for the response. Did the 21 degree blocks help with the issue I was describing? That is a pretty expensive tuning option if it doesn't do exactly what I am after. I an happy with all of the other handling characteristics.

Try to remove some anti squat before you buy the 21 degree blocks.
That and or longer rear links.

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

This is the same problem i hqd and the single biggest help was limiting thr rear droop.......

this might help. I am running full droop (I don't have the droop screws in the arm)at the moment because I broke a rear arm and threw it away and forgot to get the droop screw out, so I just pulled the other one out. Maybe I will just limit the rear shocks internally with 2mm of spacers and see how it goes. What is the shock length (eyelet to eyelet) that most of you are running?

OK, once again, Durango Noob Question… My local shop has the stock 87 tooth spur or the 81. Which should I go for and what Pinion? My local tracks are pretty good size with long straights.

I'm leaning towards 81/26 combo but please bestow your knowledge on me.

I would start with 81/21 or 22 on an orion 6.5

Another new Durango owner here. Received my 410r today and after reading through many pages it seems rear traction may be an issue. My question to all of you owners is, all else being equal, which of these diff fluid setups would yield the most "calm" rear end that doesn't want to step out on acceleration?
10k/10k
10k/5k
7k/3k
I know that many other factors play into this but I would like to get a good jump on things with diff fluids right off the bat.
No racing, just playing around on less than perfect track conditions.
Thanks All

I'm still playing with these, but it might be helpful to know what kind of track (clay, dirt, etc.). Some have suggested 10K/10K or 10k/5K for clay for instance, though again I don't know if that's the best way to go.

The 21° blocks settled the entire car down for me. More stable at speed and more predictable IMO. It might not directly help with snap oversteer but I was having that problem and now I don't seem to be (as much) and my lap times are greatly improved.

+1 also made the car smoother on long sweepers.

I think 81/21 will be hard on your motor. You should use the 87 spur with a 6.5t motor. Im not sure the 21t pinion will even touch the 81 spur as 18t is the smallest pinion I can use with the 87t spur

That's one sick buggy, son.

Anyone know of a hobby shop that's got old style rims they need to get rid of? My 2010 DEX410 is still going strong and I figure there's no need to update to the new hex adapters if I can find some of the old rims.

Thanks!

You are correct, I was thinking my kit came with the 81. My bad!

Does anyone know of a place that has decent shipping to Canada with "TDR310112" in stock?

Most of the places I order from are all out of stock. Most other places want to charge $20+ for shipping..
