Yeah, it's much better now. I plan to shorten the servo and esc wires next, but need to order the crimper and parts I need.

Hey guys almost got my V3 ready for indoor carpet, any recommendations on a good starting point for pinion. Got an 87t spur and a 7.5 motor.

I have a 23t pinion on my 7.5t and 87 spur, check temps.

Awesome, thanks. I'll start around 21 to shake the car out, and go from there.

So i installed a 84T machined spur gear and after i got done i went to set it into my center mount and it wont sit down. I pulled shims off both sides of my bearings but no luck, its like its to wide for the spur to sit down in it flush. Any ideas? Im stumped

Figure how to do the 12mm hex mod for front and rear... And in the process I also mod the battery brace, I now use and battery post with thumb screw man it was a lot easier when using with shorty pack.. I'll post some pics later..

Default New Moulded gear set?

Has anyone tried the new moulded cross shaft and gear set(TD310290), in his current dex410 and/or have some recoments to them?

I'm looking forward to this and would like to give them a try!
Nothing wrong with the metal ones, just to try....

The slipper clutch assembly is too wide. When I use Durango 87T or Schumacher 81T, 76T spur gears the distance between bearings is 16mm.
If I use the Durango 69T spur gear the distance is 16.8mm, can not fit into center mount.

Has anyone same experience?
Could I send back this spur to Durango for full refund?

Thanks

I would recommend you email TD [email protected], sounds like an issue with the spurs.

I just bought two nip complete gear diffs and both came with the wrong size bearings. They list 10x15x4 but the bearing ID is about 8mm and doesn't fit over the out drives. Is this a known issue? Also no gasket is used on the case?

Well I broke it. Last Sunday I had a really hard it, but it still ran. A few laps later after a small hit I lost drive to the left front. Arm had cracked and dive shaft popped out. When I got home I decided to replace it and that was when I realized the hinge pin bent too. Luckily, I just bought Lunsford titanium hinge pins on a whim. Now it's back up and ready for this weekend

If it was my B44.2 I would have at least broke as much if not more. So far I'm finding the DEX410 to be more durable.

Aren't guys running a hardened shaft (hingepin) from McMaster-Carr? If you hit something hard enough to break a Durango arm, 99% of the time, the stock hingepin is done too.

I'm right there with you James. The running joke at both my local tracks is that a Durango vehicle is awesome but you won't ever finish a race. I'm finding that it doesn't fit that stereotype at all. I have taken some nasty tumbles and have even been smashed by 1/8 scales on track and the only thing I've ever broken is a right front arm due to me clipping the edge of the wheel on the edge of a PVC pipe joint at a decent rate of speed. It was a clean hit on just that part and I heard it snap. Bent the hinge pin too but I replaced the arm and pin and was good to go in minutes.

On another note, anyone know where to get Purple Wing Washers or the actual size off the top of their head? I think they're 3mm but anted to be sure before I order some. Worst case I'll download the manual when I get a chance.

Thanks in advance.


t0psj0tta, you have a part number on those? I'm sure it's a gazillion times cheaper than buying the Titanium ones from Lunsford and just as good.

McMaster pins are 91595A143. These are a direct fit for DESC410. may need to dremel a bit for buggy.
