I just built a backup kit and had this exact problem.. took 30min to get the right fitment.. LOL Now it would only take a few minutes knowing the issue but I ended up grinding down the pinion gear shaft; both some material off the end (making it shorter) and a little around the shaft itself (making it more narrow). PAIN IN THE REAR! But easier than calling in and waiting for a replacement.

good to know I'm not the only one! if others have had the same issue then hopefully it won't be too hard to get a replacement set from them.

It was definitely a good showing. I do have to point out that these cars are nowhere near what consumers like us have available yet.

On that note, I am disappointed in how the car is more fragile than it looks. I snapped the front towers in a relatively benign accident with a wall. Then noticed the inside front pin was also bent. Never had so many parts break in my B44.2 (supposedly the more fragile car)

Walls are not forgiving. lol. From the pics on neobuggy it appears that they are using the same towers and arms, the chassis has definatly changed, but I wouldn't say its a drastic change or a big difference from what we run.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. What are you using? Any issues?

A standard 3mm socket head cap screw. I have never had any issue with the motor moving....:-)

Same here, have had it on my DESC410 for over 2 yrs. and not issues. Don't expect them to have an issue on the DEX.

The car Lutz was driving looked pretty standard except for the mid driveshafts. The prototype car seems to have a different chassis, different rear brace, the rear bulkhead is lower around the rear gearbox, the rear gearbox is lower than the v3 and the rear mid driveshaft is at a better angle.

To improve the hingepins, use McMaster pins if you live in the US or you can use Xray part number 307314 if you cant order from McMasters. The xray pin need to be cut about 6mm to fit the front. If you are braking the front tower you can always use the aluminium version.
The only thing I have broke more than once is the rear A-Arm, and they tend to brake only when its colder outside. I boiled my current A-Arm and it seems to hold up better.

Anyone know if the chassis is stretched?

Yes, "The main difference between the cars on track is that the prototype lands better, which he puts down to it having a longer chassis and different component layout as well as limited up travel."

I apparently can not post links yet, but the quote is from RedRc: Chassis Focus-Ryan Lutz

Called Hobbico and they're sending the parts out to me. I was pleased with the support I received.

I had issues with one of my pins that will not fit the hole properly. Finally after some coaxing it did.

One thing that I am not used to is a whole lot of extra parts. I had to go over my work again to make sure that I did not miss anything. Was this kit supposed to have come with Diff oil?

The support is insane.. I called about the drive shafts on my DESC and they sent both the longer out drives and the shafts in 2 days.. I'm very pleased and happy with durango. I hope the V3 comes back in stock so I can grab one
