Not sure if it would fit but a 35 tooth pinion for a FDR around 6. I run 69/34 for a FDR around 5.3 with a SP MMM with 15 timing on the can.

Has anyone tired the Diggity Designs carbon fiber front tower. It turns the front camber links from upright to sideways.

The tint is sweet dude! i especially like it on the wing too! i tried pactra spray can tint on a wing, but found it very hard to spray on a clean coat without it running, dripping, etc. what kinda tint did you use? it looks real good. very nice man.

I'm rebuilding my buggy for a carpet track. Most of the setup's I see are calling for 1000k or 2000k gear diff. fluid. That seems light to me. Is this what everyone is running.

For Carpet and Astro yes. Even 1000k is heavy I found. I've seen on setup sheets that Jorn uses 650cst.
I run mine on Astro turf with just black grease in the diff. with great results.

Yes I run 2,000 fluid in my diff. I run on a medium size carpet track.
When I had Losi 22 I would run 80wt shock oil in the diff, but with the Durango I like 2,000wt

5k losi diff fluid in the gear diff is awesome for any med to high bite track... I would only go less for a loose outdoor track. My buggy and truck have been on rails most nights w/ the current setup.

Thanks for the input. I've ran gear diff.s in my 4x4 SC but never in a 2wd. So for the higher traction surface the thinner the oil. And thicker for low traction surface.

Default Gear box ball stud mod

Has anyone done the gearbox mod where you are moving the ball stud in to avoid breakage?

If so, how amny millimeters in are you going from the original ballstud hole and what size drill bit are you using on the new hole?

I have not done the gearbox mode by moving the ballstud hole, but I created my own aluminum brace that wraps around the gearbox and is mounted by screwing the ballstuds into the gearbox through the brace. I made the brace out of an aluminum 1/8th scale skid plate. It eliminates the 2mm spacers under the ballstuds. It has held up very well and I have not broken a gearbox with the brace in place. The only downfall is that you can not lower the inner camber link mount....

This depends on what kind of carpet you run on? The eruo series carpet is very low bite. If I run on really HIGH bite carpet like you would see in a office, I run 3000 to 5000. If I run on carpet like you see Jorn run on, I use 1000 or less!
