Its when you dont completely clear the landing area of the jump...if you come up short and hit the top of the jump we sometimes call it that.

Has anyone else noticed the chatter that comes from the rear driveshafts/cups when the suspension is in full droop? Has anyone found a solution to this I have racked my brain trying to figure something out and only thing I can think of is a longer cup which isnt an option.

Let me guess, 3deg kickup, no droop screws and no shock limiters...sounds like you either need to put your droop screws back in or like myself go olskool and put a shock limiter or two in

OR, it could be like discussed much earlier on -

has anyone found out which diff plates (other than durango) will fix on the dex210? I'd like to replace mine but not wait for the official durango ones.

Need to replace them already?

Have you flipped them over to use the other side already?

Yeah this is caused by the extreme angle. You should be limiting the droop with the screws. Maximum down travel is a steep angle on the axles.

Yes...... 4 gear is the most popular way to run it..... the only time you would run 3 gear is if its SUPER high bite typically, like asphalt or carpet. But you can always try both ways to see which works best for YOUR driving style.

Yes and no- it depends on how many gears you have in the transmission. With a MM4 setup the motor plate is on the left (driver's) side. With MM3 the plate is on the right side. Each is better suited to specific grip levels, though I can't remember which is better for what grip level as we have only run RM configurations to date.

I run Racers Edge 4000mah/60c shorty packs in my car.....plenty of power, light weight and being able to move the battery placement back and forth to adjust weight distribution is just dialed.....

We have a few of these coming as well. We've been using the IP 5000 40c and the car is good, but the lighter pack along with more weight bias adjustment should make it even better.
