Also, it seems that the larger internal diameter washer, also has a slightly larger outer diameter as well.. but without super accurate gauges, I can't confirm it.
That's exactly what I said. And I also expained why.

It is about 0.2mm different between two washers. When you stack two washers, you still can see the diameter different of the internal hole through the eyelets.

washers
7.83mm x 2.83mm
7.98mm x 3.17

does it matter which way the washers go?

I would say YES

Have a look at the xray t3 2011 manual, smallest inside and outside diameter thrust washer is closest to the diff screw

so is the schumacher diffs.....

Default Droop

How much rear droop are people running in the rear? I have the rear droop screws all the way in and I think it could do with a bit more.

how much antisquat are you using? I'm running the 3 deg block and have my rear droop screws unscrewed about 1/2 turn. If you're running the 1.5deg block you'll probably need to remove your droop screws to get the needed droop. If you're running the zero deg block you might even need to shim up both suspension mounts to get your droop

Yes, and you wanted me to check.. so I checked, and I am reporting what I found. Is there a problem here? or are you trolling just for fun?

They will, just need to use the shorter version

thanks, I just had a look as well, and according to amains site, the longer rear dex410 ones are compatible with the dex210, so will order some when in stock.

the original 210 setup just seem like a pain in the backside to change upper shock positions. Might just change the lock-nut for a regular nut, which sits inside the mount itself.

All right, I admit I am not an expert on ball difs and want to make sure I do it right. The Durango diff is a little different than the Losi diff I have experience with. I am a little confused on how to properly install the snap ring. I did not see a groove or anything for it to fit in, but I am pretty sure I did everything right. The diff feels nice and smooth and before I go any further I want to make sure it is right. Someone please give me some good instructions or a video of how to do this diff correctly. I know the Durango is a little different and want to make sure it is right?

They may fit, I don't know myself, but I would NOT go based on what amain says. They have all KINDS of parts listed for 210 that are totally incompatible with the 210.

you need the longer shock mounts or the shocks won't be spaced away from the tower enough. The one piece shock mounts weigh quite a bit more than the stock setup, I'm gonna keep my mount stock.
