sounds about right mate just remember to check your temps for the start and middle and then end of your run

He is not a newb and knows about throttle control and proper jumping procedure. Just putting that out there
(2 questions)

1. Does anybody think Team Durango will warranty the chassis as some sort of defect? I mean c'mon, it's crazy!

2. What extra parts would I need to convert to the aluminum chassis? As everything on the RTR is molded into the plastic chassis.

Thank you
I would contact Team Durango at [email protected].
To convert to the aluminium chassis you would need -
MAIN CHASSIS PLATE Part No: TD320125
CHASSIS SIDE POD SET Part No: TD320122
3x10mm CS Screws x12 For mounting the side pods and rear suspension holders.
And probably a new body since the RTR has a +8mm chassis
DEX210 CLEAR BODY SET (INCLUDES DECALS & MASKS) Part No: TD402009
I think that is it.

This is how you would mount it for mid motor, would need a couple spacers to move it up so you don't need to cut off the default mounts.

I had the same issue. The two washers are different sizes on purpose. From what I have read here you should put the tighter one on first. I had a tough time getting the tighter washer on but it eventually slid over the bolt if you get it just perfect.

What was the first thing that brought you to a halt?

After the process of elimination smash and I figured out the two idler gears must be out of round a bit. I dremeled a small amount of material out of the rear upper shaft hole to allow a little play and the gearbox is great. You can feel the out of round on the gears though. Just had to remove everything one by one and shim and re shim until we finally figured it out. I really like the mm4 layout, hope it works on our track.

I havent experienced a binding on my transmission, and I have been running RM4, almost from day 1. Machining plastic, may not be the smartest thing.

Raul, if you have any input for onroad, please look at my post on the speed passion thread in the onroad section. Thanks!

It was a last resort thing and this is a spare car I am building up. Tried everything but different idler gears as I didn't have any extras. When I used to term dremeled, I used it lightly. Took about .5 mm off of the back of the rear mounting holes to free up the idler shaft and allow the gearbox to spin freely. Didn't get crazy with the dremel or anything. Been doing this over 25 years and have a lot of experience. I hated to do it but it was a last resort move. Nothing is compromised.
