No idea how it broke but I didn't have a servo saver. Maybe it just took all the force when I crashed once. It was something I just randomly noticed and not after an obvious accident.

Hi guys... I was thinking about buying a durango 2wd buggy... can you guys tell me what you like and dislike so far about the buggy... I have a Losi 22 so I'm trying to compare.. and are the parts hard to find? Any feedback would be appreciated.

I know this might not be the right place to post this question about speedo and gearing but it is in a 210! Ok here's the deal, I've got a tekin rs in the car and I put in a 8.5 (x-12) last night and after 4 minutes the motor was 112 and the speedo was 156! The motor has the 4dot -10 insert in it and speedo is set to blinky, gearing is 81/25, any suggestion?

Did you check to see if gear mesh is too tight or if there is binding in the tranny?

Yeah leave it alone. 156f isn't hot at all. The RS has an onboard temp monitor on it that is far more accurate than temping the outside of the unit. It looks like this:



You have no concerns until you start seeing 6 led's.

If you go to http://www.petitrc.com/index.php?page=setup_sheet

There are a bunch of set up sheets for the 210 on there in both RM and MM configuration.

I don't think, you can mount a pinion that big with a stock spur.
Last weekend I tried a 13.5, but I had to use a 76 spur (Cougar SV) with a 26 pinion.
Gear ratio is 2.6 so now you can calculate the desired final ratio (spur/pinion*2.6) yourself

Could someone please explain what adjusting the droop screws accomplishes as well as what is meant by wheel base adjustment and trailing axle adjustment also rear anti-squat
I am getting a Durango but I'm a little nervous about all these adjustments because I don't know what they are or what they do especially in combination with one another.
Is there a good resource that explains what these terms mean...I know Durango doesn't have it I've already asked them.
THanks and sorry for so many questions. Have a great Thanksgiving
