rear shock towers (plural if you plan on using the Rango ones)
and spring steel dif c clips ( i have 50 of them coming today!!)
seems like the ballcups plague some but not others.

I was just going to say....dont assume you need ballcups just because some people are having a problem. I have yet to pop one on my car

Before spending any extra $$ on stuff you may not need, assemble the factory parts first (take your time and follow the tips that have been posted in this thread) and you may never have an issue.

The shock tower is kind of in the same boat, although more people have broken those. Even on other cars though, its typically a replacement you would always want to have so definitely order one......or three extra for your pit box

good news!! i got my dif issues figured out! today my new spring steel c clips came in so i had my fingers crossed that for some reason it would fix the problem. so i put it all back together and it STILL did it. upon further inspection the thrust bearing cage was distorted and one of the balls would get pinned between the cage and itself causing it to lock up!! of all the freaking things that could happen, so i took the thrust balls out of the cage reinstalled and now it work perfectly..........
the spring steel clips feel MUCH better and snap in and out with no distortion. definately grab some! now to the track

Good to hear you found the gremlin, and it's back on the track. I put a few more laps on mine tonight, and it's really getting good, and haven't popped a cup, or broke a part off it yet. I like it so much, I picked up another kit, and may be moving my Son into one soon, now there will be a definite durability test..lol

Here's Cush's 210 (and DEX410/DESC410R) all ready for this year's Spektrum Race at Trackside Hobbies. Huge thanks to my guy Paulie from Nut Shellz for getting the bodies done. Hoping for some good results for Cush and his Team Durango/Tresrey rigs!

I built my turnbuckles almost exactly as in the guide. Reamed, greased, threaded in and out a couple of times. No popped links while racing or adjusting.
