I can't wait to run it.
Just the seal or the whole cap. If its just the o-ring you can run to home depot or lowes and pick up a couple to get you going. Still sucks though.

For the racers that switches between RM3 & RM4, are you having to Flip the diff adjustment screw in a different direction? In RM3 I run the adjustment head on the spur side but would think in RM4 you would flip it since the idle gear that contacts it is spinning in a different direction.

Got a TQ and win for the 210 last night club racing Patrick qualified his 210 2nd and almost took home the "W" after I made a first lap mistake that let him by I kept the pressure on for the 7 minute main and he bobbled on the last lap in the last corner and I went by for the win. Awesome race with some good position swapping during the race, we got the Durangos a 1-2 finish.

Earlier during practice I broke my 3rd rear shock tower in about 30 packs...took a hard crash and landed on my lid.

So, that was the time to install my Diggity Designs prototype 4mm carbon fiber Patrick and I actually both received one yesterday to test and so far so good....its drilled correctly so you can use the stock Durango shoulder screws and there is no upper crossbar to interfere with airflow over the center of the wing. Fit perfect, looks great and worked flawlessly. Give http://www.diggitydesigns.com/ a call and let them know you there's a need for these. He will also be doing an ackerman rack, battery brace and possibly a front tower (though the camber link location sucks IMO since it ends up way out in front of the car where it can get damaged easily)

I run my screw head on the passenger side of the car in both RM3 and RM4... no issues.

Me too, the diff spins the same way in both configs, so I see no need to flip the diff. Good job on the W.
TOMDAV- no need to buy new shafts, just install 4mm worth of shims and your good to go.

Unfortunately it is the threaded cap, if it as the o-rings I would not worry about it.

TD seems to have an aluminum version out that no one has in stock

Re-save the pdf file as a jpeg and post it as a picture. Should work then.

Is that an additional inner hole. The kit tower has only 3 and this looks like it has 4.

A few pics of my new ride. I've always gone out of the way to make my cars a little different and this one was no exception. The chassis was hard anodized black, the cv bones were chromed, the outdrives were hard plated and I opted for the TC5 ballstuds so that I could use the white JC ball cups. I also chose to go with the AE thumbscrews and battery strap as well as some blue aluminum screws where possible. Not sure if it's the climate but down here the shock towers have held up so far. Of course, we haven't run below 75 degrees yet....
