i did dat but when i worked the shock it feels like air inside..
or do i add oil with the shaft fully extended?

thanx
Fill the shock 3/4 full and push the shaft up, then pull it down to get the bubbles out from under the piston (you may want to do this twice on initial build). Then once all the air bubbles have worked their way out, top the shock off so that it "domes" over the top of the body slightly. With the screw out of the cap, place a few drops (2-3) in the cap and screw it on. Then hold the shock perfectly vertical and slowly push the shaft to the top (it helps to hold a rag just under the hole) and install the screw. Three more shocks and you're done Very simple and smooth shocks to build.

I was getting all excited that the sc10 dif fit. But moving side to side? Yeh, kind of a big deal. Not sure if that's what you meant. If it fits, like perfect, fill us in.

the sc10 gear diff fits. You just need to add shims to the out drives to match the length of the durango ball diff. That way you have no side to side movement

Well...

Since I should have our indoor track done early Dec..... Pulled the trigger on the DEX210 this week


May try the SC10 gear diff and see how it works... need ta BUILD this baby 1st....LOL

With Billy F being a local here in AZ his setup sheets apply to most of the racing here in the Valley... So That helps for sure..

Sounds Like not a lot of MODS needed...

I also have the +8 bodies, so may test one of those as well


Fine Times ahead.... just gotta get Parts in stock at the shop now

Either that or wait until the TD gear diff comes out. I'm pretty good about maintenance but I have yet to see a huge difference between a gear and ball diff. But I'll try both on this rig for sure and then make a decision.

With that said, I have about 4 months on the gear diff on my xxx-sct. It still feels money!
