Looks like the Black are 2.13lb front and 2.86lb rear which are two springs stiffer than light blue and two springs softer than the dark blue.
Speaking of which does anyone have a spring rate chart for durango?

Hey guys, a little help here...I'm running a TekinRSPro with a 5.5 BL motor and using a 16T pinion on stock spur gear. My motor temps at 120+deg F but my ESC is at 155+degF. Could you guide me what's the best baseline set-up for the ESC? Many thanks.

On the Tekin site there's a esc setup for a 6.5 in a durango, I would start with that.

tony2382: Ok, thanks for the heads-up. I started with a 9.5 and wasn't happy because it didn't have the top-end I needed so I switched to a 5.5. I'll go start with a 21T pinion and check my temps.

Matt: Cool. I'll check it out. Thanks.

Randy's setup on the Tekin site calls for a 19T pinion with a 6.5 motor, he should be good using 17-18t pinion on a 5.5, a 23T pinion will overheat the motor pretty quick.

tonyv2382: Just asking, what's your ESC set-up on your RSPro? It's taking me ages to scan at the Tekin Forum site..many thanks.

Whoa-ho! Tiny parts!! This kit is amazing. Some of the tolerances are unreal. Truly a quality kit. I will be watching for their 8th scale when it comes out. Definitely use the Oople article and follow it closely when building . . .

I think 23t pinion might be a bit much for a 5.5T. Im running a speed passion v3 5.5t and a lrp sxx tc and i'v got a 18t pinion with the std spur and it comes of just about perfect. Im not sure if its different with the tekin speedy though

I am wondering why Durango did not use gaskets in the diffs. Seems like a no brainer to me but maybe I am missing something . . .
