Anybody have slipper issues with their durango? I've taken it apart a few times and swapped out with AE pads and it slips way too much never fully engages. I can lock down the spring and still slips like crazy?
Thanks!

Hello dust1905,

Have a look at the dex210v2 manual, they put now two shims behind the first slipper plate, that brings the hole asambling a bit to the outside, and have a look at your layshaft spacer, too, the older one did worn a bit to easy!
There was a running change on them, the older one were silver, the newer one are olive green, like the aluminum hinge pin holders.

That definitely doesn't sound right. Make sure the slipper plates are lined up right. Maybe of of the pieces is defective that's not allowing a proper fit.

As mentioned above, the V2 uses 2 small shims behind the first slipper plate. I've only had to shim one of my older cars though. The shaft where the adjustment is, is only threaded down so far, by putting a small spacer or some washers on before the locknut, it will allow it to be tightened more. Even with AE pads, I run a small spacer before the locknut and once mine was adjusted properly I haven't had to mess with it.

I am getting my DEST210 off the shelf and back on the track again. I am running a Reedy 540 Sonic 8.5 and trying to figure out what pinion to use, does 23 sound right?

The last time I rebuilt my DEST210 I did what it says in the V2 manual and put one on either side of the spring and two before the first slipper plate. Works great.

Tried the cush setup this past weekend and the truck felt really good.

http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...etup201212.pdf

About the only thing I changed was a higher ride height. I've notice most of the setups for DEST and DESC have really low ride heights compared to what I ran my AE trucks at.

Not a lot of setups out there for the DEST but this one definately feels much better than box setup.

I just grabbed a DEST210R on a hell of a steal. I was wondering if you have to have a Type B chassis to use Type B components. Maybe a dumb, obvious question but I'm pretty much a noob with Durango stuff.

It depends on the part. What are you trying to do?

The type B parts will fit the original chassis. Some type B parts require additional parts though. For example, the type B motor guard requires the RR suspension mount.

Just getting my ducks in a row and looking at spares. I asked the seller if he'd ever had it mid motor and his response was I didn't know it was mid capable so I'm guessing whatever parts you may need aren't with it.

Is it the kit version or rtr? The RTR version will need a couple small parts to be able to run MM4 but MM3 is no issues as long as you get all the parts that came in the box.
