You have to use the proper sized ones. I believe it's 1mm up top and 2mm down below but this is with the 21░ blocks. The Plastic Caster Blocks require a little more shimming.

Are you hell bent on Hitec? If not, the ProTek 130SS is very good. Also the Savox SC-1257TG. Word of caution on these because they draw more power you might need a BEC if the speed control does not give enough power.

If you mean Tresrey, I'd reckon they'd make a good carů but all the parts would be RED. LOL

I'm going to wait and see how all the new cars perform over a few months to see what's the next kit I buy. If the Durango is still one of the top cars I'll likely buy the V4 and if Tresrey makes components for it I'll likely buy them and have them custom anodized to the color I like.

I just wish companies offered a variety of color choices on aluminum parts so you can make your car unique.

985MG is a good budget servo, plenty of torque and decent speed.
7965 is also a good one, about the same price and digital. 139oz/.10secs.

While what you say is true, one aspect that isn't considered is impact resistance. This is one area where carbon composites come up short, no matter what manufacturing method is chosen.

TD are starting to do that Several parts in their 10th range are available in Red, Olive, Black and Gold.

8x3x1mm and 8x3x2mm spacers are what you are looking for, here's a list of available spacers http://durangofansite.com/main.php?v...#bling-spacers

Thanks for posting this. If you don't mind posting some pics? are you using spacers?

Also just for clarification are you using these TLR 22 12mm clamping hexes?

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...d-Width-TLR-22

Same on front and rear? I noticed they have a couple of different offsets as well.

I picked up the AVID B4.1/B44.1:
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Wheel-Hex-Set

hexes and they seem to fit the rear and give me two width options, however they don't seem to work in the front. I've attached a few pics of the AVID hexes...

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!!

Thank you!!, this seems to work although I'm still trying to figure out which 12mm clamping hubs will work with my JConcepts Inverse rims. I'm running these on my DEX210 so I want to try and keep the rim standard for the rear.

I've tried the avid 12mm clamping set for the B4.1/B44.1 and I used some spacers to make it work. The set of four gives you two width options but I'm still looking for a proper solution in the front. Any ideas you have are welcome? Please post links...and pictures if possible.

Thanks!

losi hex has 5mm internal diameter. durango shaft is about 4.7mm thick, there's some play there and it's not idea.

I'm using JConcept B4.2 front hex for the rear, added 2.3mm spacer between the hex and the bearing. (actually 2.25mm is the best, but hard to make).


curious if anyone has tried to use sc10 front hex. it looks a bit thicker than B4 hex.

hitec 985mg are awesome servo's; by choice I run them over most of the newer digitals...

That said bar none the spectrum 6040 is easily the best 1/10 servo out there.. PERIOD
