Put a small touch of thread lock on the pin and install it. Does a great job and easy enough to take apart when needed.

Modded Akula tower-I would have have tightened up a bit, but the stocker was cracked where I couldnt do much more. I will put it through the ringer, and see how it holds up..Attachment 844380
NICE..........

your right. I use the same packs in my dex210 as in my sc10 4x4 for economic reasons.
packs are fullsize 5600 60c 2s lipo and well over 300 grams a piece
Xerun v2.1 120A speedo ( also the same as in my sc10 4x4 )


I do use a lowprofile savox, that saves a few grams

I use B4 roll pins instead of the smooth pins in the hexes. They stay put!

Hey guys. I ordered 2 RW spurs for my 10.5 and they showed up yesterday.

Do the stock slipper pads work?

Thanks!

Durango "star" extended battery hold down!! i am going to play around with saddles tomorrow so i machined this today, came out better than i thought but i made it a few MM too long.


on the car with one saddle all the way back and one all the way forward, definately keeps the front end down better!
