No I have the exact same car you have no pivot balls with the plastic hangers. The AL hangers use the pivot balls.

Viper vtx10r can run hot too. When I was running on dirt with a 6.5T motor, 170deg was nothing. Set the internal sensor to 240deg and no problems.

I love that the car has pivot balls, it makes the suspension smooth and bind free...

Agree. The pivot balls with the aluminum hangers work very well.

How about the shock towers, do they hold up or do they need to be replaced w/ aluminum?

The R version towers are plastic. So I'm curious if they break as easily as the dex210's did? And I'm actually looking at making the towers out of carbon fiber.

I have been told that the 6mm composite towers are very durable. I am actually taking my carbons off in order to try the composite towers. You should see a little more traction due to flex as well with the composite.

I am running just a regular SP 5.5t motor (http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...less-Motor-55R)

as far as the gearing goes im running a 21t pinion and 87t spur.

After an 8 minute main with some throttle happy driving the highest I have seen it is 150. most of the time it stays under 140 though. The motor also stays at a similar temp (around 138-146 after 8 minutes).

At this point I'm completely at a loss with why my motor is getting so freaking hot! Anyone else have any other thoughts as to why this might be happening?

Get as many holes in your body for air flow as possible.

I've gotten up to 160 while I was testing the temp issue without the body. I'm going to retard the motor timing and see if that helps. Gearing hasn't helped, currently geared 87/19.

Well, my Orion's timing isn't turned up and it still gets hot. I believe the issue is the heft of the car and nothing more. Compared to both of my buddies' 44.2's and the 2 K1's that run at my local track, the 410 is a heavy cow. It amazes me how gracefully it behaves on track. The car is superb but could stand to go on a serious diet. rather than adding all the weight to the rear of the car, perhaps the front end could stand to lose a little.

And before anyone suggests the weight is the greatest factor in how well the car drives, there are other cars that are far lighter that drive perfectly fine, though they are not as awesomely fantastic as the Durango.

Mind you, this is coming from long time Associated guy.
