But wow. The fit and finish is second to none for an off road car. I am building with ti screws and the rubber boots for the shocks and axles.

So far my order list will be the aluminum hinge pin mounts, the carbon towers and the carbon rear brace. Then I think k will just drive this bad boy!!!

I will post pics tonight when the build is done!!!
Where did you find a Ti screw kit for the Durango?

I'd like to do the same when I build mine, but have yet to locate a kit.

Did you have to peice a kit together?

What ESC/Motor combo are you guys running? I just built and raced with the R and can't make it beyond 8 minutes without it thermo-ing out. I am running a Novak GTB with a Novak Velocity 6.5. I also read on the review in XRC running a Tekin with a 7.5 average run time was 8 minutes. It's hard to finish a main when they are 10 minutes long. And yes, I reamed some holes and vents to get some air moving in there.

Thanks,

Thanks,
LRP TC spec with X12 6.5T motor. Awesome combo. This car runs very hot when properly geared so the heatsink on the TC spec really helps. It is all a very tight fit though. Order the LRP 70mm sensor cable for your ESC.

And the front suspension braces break like they're made of butter. Buy the aluminum ones direct from Durango because you can't get them from the resellers. If not, order three or four plastic spares because you will be replacing them regularly.

this is for everyone when doing the diff pinion with the 2 small bearing make sure you have no play foward and backwards if you look in the maual it has a X&OBY what your supposed to do if u just lay the bearings in the slot of the diff case then you will have problems stripping the ring gear trust me i know now and questioned it on the build but thought it was fine just laying the bearings in the slots but anyways just wanted to pass that on for new builders i flunked build 101.....

you will know when you hear real loud click click click click click lol

Will post pictures tonight. Had some steering servo issues and lost a servo, so had to get a new BLS451 today. Will mount up my Tekin and my motor tonight, and shoot some pics

Current setup is 35 losi oil ft, 30 in back, stock springs, stock positions, going to try it and play with it. I picked up a full spring kit front and rear, so i can play with them.

Also ran 15k in front, 5k in rear. Running J Concepts barcodes in blue frt and rear.

Default A Main fulfilled my aluminum front outer brace order

I've had the front aluminum braces on back order at A Main Hobbies for a few months and the front outer (the most important one) just got fulfilled. Still shows back order on their site but they may just be holding back until they fulfill all the back orders.

You may want to place your own on back order because they reserve it for you but don't force you to buy it and don't charge any money for the back order.
