I am running the 3/3 block, so I cant add more. Should I stiffen up the front end? I am running the stock 6 hole w/30wt front and 6-hole 20wt rear.

I am using the Xerun 120amp esc with speed passion software. Its not the esc that is giving me issues. Should I move to the 4 hole up front?

i think its most likely your rear shock setup.

Im running 4 hole 1.3's with 20 weight, 3 on the tower, 1 on the arm ( i think, durango's mounting holes are backwards, if it were a XXX it would be 1-outside) with TLR pink springs

Well, Im not sure which setup to go by form TD's website. I dont know any of the tracks listed, and the tracks in houston are big 1/8 scale(1st track is smooth, medium to high grip when wet to dry and blue groove, and the othertrack is rough, and can be high traction when wet, and loose when dry) All the tracks have high speed turns, step-ups, and big jumps. I figured the 4 hole would pack to easily onthe rough track, so I opted for the 6 hole. I dont have any chassis slap unless i overshoot the huge double single( cant quite trippe it) Other than the rear end dumping out at high speeds on brake, the car is amazing! Any shock setup sugestions is welcomed

Thanks

If the only reason you like a lot of brake is for mid-air correction you need to remember that even a very light brake setting on the esc or tx, your brakes will lock up pretty quick without any load on them(ie: in the air). Lighten up your brake setting just to the point where you're rear end isn't locking up on the ground.

Dave, I run mine at fastlane and letko all the time. Chuck is getting in parts for my 210 as they can. They are a big help and parts are all over the place now. I have jst now only broken my akerman plate but thanks to fastlane I already had a spare. This car is very stout after hitting the back wall at letko almost 30 times before I pulled the hingpin out the mount. Lol no shocktower issues here and I chassis slap HARD ALL the time. Hit me up and take it for a ride. You will end up getting one. Trust me

I am about to drop the bomb on this,

Can someone tell me besides a-arms, hubs, and casters.

What other spares should I order right away.

I also see some using Losi springs are they a direct fit.

Thanks
Can't wait to get my 210 and later going to get the DESC210r

Cool, shock towers.

Can anyone point out some of weak points if any?

I am coming from a b4.1 and am very curious as to how they compare.

Thanks

The only other thing that is hit or miss is the ballcups. I have only had problems with the rear inner camber mount. for some reason they were prone to poping off real easily. So I upgraded, then broke the inner camber ballstud mount. If that happens, and you need a quick fix, rcshox.com has a solution.

Diggitydesignes also has some nice carbon fibre stuff for a very good price!
