Also note, the 22T will have an option to use gear diff as well

I would like to understand why gear diff could be better than ball diff. Factory cars all come out with diff balls and i don't undestand why lots of you want to use gear diff.What Are the advantages?
Ps sorry for grammar errors!
Thanks
For me it'll be intially about lower diff maintenance with racing one wet astroturf over the winter months. You can also tune the diff, but not sure how much benefit that'll be in the 2WD vs the DEX410

I'll still have ball diffs to look after from my TRF511 which won't be raced outdoors over winter.

Why are the TD titanium turnbuckles so f-in expensive? Lunsford needs to release some to fit.

Just find out what size you need and order the Lunsfords. I pieced together Ti turnbuckle kit for my DESC410R and it came out to around $30 if I remember right.

I just pre-ordered one, hope I don't regret it.

I'm hanging on to the b4 incase I go through the debacle I went through with the 410r.

If TD sucks with the support after this, I'm done with TD.

Patience is necessary with a new platform, regardless of the manufacturer. My only concern is whether parts will ship at the same time as the kits- it would be no good to break an arm or hub and not have any spares. Short of that, I have no worries about the quality or fit and finish of the buggy- TD has won me over in that department.

Cars and parts are typically shipped together.

This is a bit off-topic, but I was one of the ones to recieve the first kits. I got the first edition spur gears and destroyed 4 of them in 2 weeks. Durango told me I shimmed them wrong.

They also said I was a "bad driver" (they used other words, but same meaning) because I was breaking the front hingepin holders and popping off rod ends and they had no issues with them. Aluminum holders went on backorder for 2 months so my car sat on a shelf.

They sent me a PM once, offered to give me some stuff and I never heard from them again. I'm fully expecting to be on my own with this one, so I'm keeping my b4 just incase.

Really? Every time I emailed them with a problem or advice, they always responded. Not sure in your case but I have nothing but good things to say on my end..........sorry for your inconvience.
