Build Info:

Most recent version of the manual: http://www.team-durango.com/pdf/manu...0R%20Final.pdf

There is alot of great info on the Team Durango website's "In the Pits" section. These are of particular interest to the 210 series of cars:

Ball Diff Build- http://www.team-durango.com/in-the-p...rticle_id=4771
Gear Diff Build- http://www.team-durango.com/in-the-p...rticle_id=5453
Motor Configuration Guide- http://www.team-durango.com/in-the-p...rticle_id=4472
Turnbuckle Build Guide- http://www.team-durango.com/in-the-p...rticle_id=4915

Additional build tips:

Building shocks:
-The shock cap should be beveled 45 degrees (exacto knife works well) to help keep the shock cap oring in place.
-Sand roughly .5mm from the plastic spacer between the cartridge orings, this allows smoother operation from less "squish"

Bleeding shocks:
-Front shocks are simple. Fill 3/4 full, work out air bubbles and then fill to top. Put 2-3 drops in the cap (make sure oring on shock body is lubricated), screw cap down, push shock shaft all the way in, and install bleeder screw. Done!
-Rear shocks should be double bled. Fill 3/4 full, work out air bubbles and then fill to top. Put 2-3 drops in the cap (make sure oring on shock body is lubricated), screw cap down, push shock shaft all the way in, and install bleeder screw. Pump the shock in and out 10 times or so (same amount on both sides), extend the shock shaft, remove bleeder screw, push shaft all the way in again, and install bleeder screw.

Shimming Front Hubs:
-The front hubs can bind up due to a lack of a crush tube between the bearings. Parts needed to make a crush tube are:
Team Durango Wheel Distance Bushing- http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXCCNY&P=Z
Kyosho 5x7mm Shim Set - http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...5x7mm-Shim-Set
Use one TD wheel distance bushing and .6mm of shims between the bearings in the front hubs to allow the wheels nuts to be tightened while having smooth, bind free wheels.

Shimming Rear Hubs:
-Using the same 5x7mm shims, anywhere from .1-.3mm may be necessary between the bearings (on the rear axle), depending on what hubs are installed. The shims slide onto the axle shaft against the "step" prior to installing the axle into the hub. I'll try to get some measurements up in the near future on this, but for now a bit of trial and error may be needed to find the right amount for your hubs. When shimmed properly, the rear wheels can be tightened down very snug and still spin freely.

Rear Dogbones
The rear dogbones included with the kit are 96mm length. Depending on the kickup/droop settings used, some racers have had them pop out. The solution is to use the 97mm dogbones from the front of the DESC410. Hobbico will provide these free of charge with a phone call or email.

Recommended Upgrades (* items are very highly recommended)

Tresrey 3 degree toe, 2 degree kickup http://www.tresrey-usa.com/tresrey-a...st210-desc210/
TSR Products makes 3/0, 3/1.5, and 3/3.

Been waiting for it.

Someone from Team Durango verbally leaked this to some people at the final Short Course Showdown race at Mikes Hobby Shop.

I wonder if it will also use rims that no one else has or carries. I been looking into the Durango stuff but with having rims that don't match others I'm just not willing to invest in all new tires when I can use the ones I have on so many other brands.

You can run the JC B4.1 rear hex and run 12mm hex rims for the B4.1 and Tresrey is releasing a front axle that allows you to run B4 front rims that use bearings. Done!

I have had no interest in SC in the past, but this might change my mind and look nice to my 210. The 410V3 is next on my list!

Define a while.. If history is any indicator, I think this thread will reach about 1000 pages before the DESC210R hits the shelves..
