The sale that Hobbico/Great Planes was having is over, so the price is back to normal. I got mine last night w/free tshirt, imperial front axles, and DEX410 rear wheel cones for $201 shipped after using a $50 off coupon code.

Just in time..

That being said, what's a recommended starting setup for a dusty, bumpy, blown out 1/8th scale track? I looked at setups on the Durango site, but they don't really give a description of the track conditions unless you download and open each setup sheet.

All the setups are broke down like you are wanting here.

Update. Contacted Hobbico and so far they seem responsive. Certainly, they were at least rather friendly on the phone.

I'll let everyone know how the situation resolves.

I was helping out someone yesterday with their 210 and he was running stock, which I do not run. He was under geared and in trying to help him i realized that we don't have a great reference to help with gearing for this car. sure u can sift through endless posts and try to get the answer, but most likely u will just get confused and frustrated. Petit rc has given us an unbelievable tool for looking up things, but this is lacking and would be a nice addition. So here is what I propose:

If everyone sends me their motor wind, spur and pinion, and track size(small, med, large) I will put together a spreadsheet and post it so everyone can reference it.

Since I am sure to get different variations I will sift through and try to put down which makes the most logical sense. This won't be perfect, but it can be a great starting point that should be able to get u within a tooth of where u need to be, which would be a great reference. All I would ask is if u aren't really experienced and sure that u have the proper gear ratio, then don't give it to me, that way we make sure we get good info. I know there are some really knowledgeable guys on here, so I am calling out to you guys to help with this project.

Please PM me info, that way we don't clog the thread, then I will post the results here when it is finished.

Thanks guys,
Campbell

I got a few Pm's sent to me but I sure can use a lot more. If you guys can send me some info, I would sure appreciate it!

I am pretty sure the FDR on the tranny is the same for the 210 and B4.1. You could probably dig up data on the gearing the for B4.1 much easier, and apply it to the Durango no?

If you know where all this data is in one place and easily accessable let me know. I can't find it, that is why I am trying to put it together so everyone can benefit.
