I don't see anything out of the ordinary with your hex assembly, looks like your steering knuckle needs an extra vertical shim though.

A generic RC cross wrench like #TD390022 will fit. I know the Hudy nut driver will fit too http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...et-Driver-70mm

Built a Dest210r kit and ran it for the first time this weekend. As it is right now it has a major off power push. What should I look at adjusting first to get more steering in it? That was the biggest issue I had with the kit, something is up with the slipper but I believe it is in assembly I have it locked down and it is still slipping like crazy.

Check a couple things. Check the layshaft spacer for wear. That's a huge issue if it is worn. Durango pads are not the greateat. Associated pads will work before the v2slipper. I have those on mine and works a better. My dest210 I have been struggling with the slipper. I tried the avid triad but I run ball diff and afraid of barking it. Working through the issues. My St truck no issues. Kind of weird. I did replace the layshaft spacer and it did help.

Excess slipping of the slipper can be cause by glazed slipper pads or a worn layshaft spacer, would say it's the former since it was your first run.

Softening the front suspension would be one thing to try to get more off power steering.

Got a DEST210R coming in next week. Couldn't pass it up at $150 shipped. What are your guys thoughts on this particular truck in mid motor configuration. It will be on an indoor clay track with relatively decent traction. Should I build it 3 gear or keep it a bit safe at 4 gear?

Thanks!

The Dynamite black handle aluminum and Losi also work.

It's not cost efficient. I think it's easier to list the common parts rather than what you need. I think even the shocks and turnbuckles aren't the same.

Steering assembly
Transmission

You can convert into SC way easier.

I haven't heard of many trying it as MM. Gotta get the track time and try it.

As feared about the cost and I already have a sc so won't go that route. Thank you.

I got bored and pulled the 17.5 out of it and put a 8.5 in, what a difference, this thing is a blast, but I am also now having the slipper issue as well. I am using the Aarma pads, but maybe it is the layshaft spacer. This truck still rocks. I hand made a 100 gram brass weight for the back, under neath the chassis, it really made a difference.

having raced he 4.1 with 4.2 parts and the team c tco2t pro. this is the best st i have had. The thing just stayed glued to track outdoors in rm4. yes i broke a rear arm first time out(cold) but i originally bought this truck as a intermiem till the AE t5 came out and they were on sale at tower.....

But as it stands i may not be getting the t5 since this truck drives so good. only issue ive had is the shock cap seals are horrid. shocks are good though. running different springs and sumo trans case brace just in case.

Take an x-acto and cut a 45 bevel around the edge if you have already done so.

I wish Durango would hurry up and release a new body for the DEST210. I think I have more Shoe Goo than lexan at this point.

I am with you.. I have been team durango since I decided to stop bashing but the lack of support for everything in the last 3-4 months has turned me off.. once my current cars need replacing I think It's a different brand
