Have any of you guys had to add weight after going to a 17.5? I just put one in and noticed it is smaller and lighter than my 13.5.

if you think you've wasted money on rw spurs, the first couple times you ream out the center and its slightly off and then you start chewing up spur gears again, you'll be pissed.

i'd either search high and low for the durango spurs through all the vendors possible or you can try reaming. I did an ae spur and bored out the center and you could tell it was slightly off. even taking my time. slipper pad shows the offcenter based on how much is showing on each side of the plate.

sucks you had bad luck, and maybe its because i'm running stock motor in the truck, but my 75 in it is lasting great.
The Tresrey slipper plates and shaft are $30. If you wear down a plate or score a line on one of the plates, do you have to buy the whole assembly at $30? Or can you use AE slipper plates?

im just more concerned with the play between topshaft and metal gear. really annoying, though it is same play that exists on TD stock layshaft. I wish tresrey could offer just a replacement topshaft for this slipper conversion. my topshaft is exhibiting rounding of the beveled edges where the gear mates to. Plates with a garodisk have been a non-issue thus far.

I have noticed recently stock has been low or non-existent on some parts at most of the places I shop. I thought with a new distributor parts would be plentiful. In 2011 and early 2012, i got so sick of hunting for parts for the 410, I sold it. There seemed to be plenty of parts in the later part of 2012, but it seems there is a shortage again.

Not everything, just the things we use most.

Ill check around and see what i can find.

I was in your same boat a few weeks ago...had to buy them off ebay. $4 w/$2 for shipping. Better than waiting until Feb. for stock.

Hi guys, I purchased a 210 a few months ago and I just started racing it. Its a pet project that I am trying to get set up while I focus on other classes.

I am reading through the forum, about 100 pages in the middle done, and I will read more. I am carefully setting the truck up with a lot of assistance from the text in this forum. I have a few observations that I would like your feedback on.

1. I notice that the rear ride height around ~25mm nicely puts the axles level which is good. Its hard to get the front ride height down, I find it not very sensitive to the collar position. I have to have the droop screws all the way out, and the shock on the outer arm mount position (middle on tower) to get things below 30mm. I am running kit springs now (tuning kit coming).

2. I had to run a little droop in the rear (two turns out from flush) to stop the rear end flutter on one side. The dogbone was catching and lifting the arm when the cup and pin are horizontal. I read something of this flutter but can't find the information.

A setup sheet and questions will likely follow when I get some laps in.

I don't know what kind of traction you have at your track, but we just converted my son's DEX210 from RM3 to MM3 to run in stock 17.5 and removed the weights he had up front. You might try running MM3, he loves it and the car is dialed.

Thats amazing. I searched everywhere I could find, even ebay. No one has part TD340004 in stock. The only place that said they were in stock was a site called nankinhobby.com, but I have never heard of them or used them. Tower said mid-January. I can check a few local shops, that have SOME Durango parts. Maybe we'll get lucky.

Nankin Hobby is an well established hobby shop here in MI. I personally have not dealt with them, but know of several people that have without any issues.
