Do not like but it's so true.
When racing got some rookie drivers inside, they will just crash you out when you are lapping them.

Nice that our track has a free rookie class, making the 4x4 short course class much cleaner.

this is the close and clean.


That's a great race, beautiful punch jump from the light weight of it.
*is that a 1/8 buggy with a short course body? even forgot to take the rear wing off?



Can't wait for mine to arrive, ordered last Wednesday night and it's still being processing...
Thank you ckhobby...

My son tried to drive his truck off the track after popping off a front camber link ballcup and it killed one of his diff outdrives. We did not have any replacements for a TS4 but we had some spare ball diffs for the wheeler. As it turns out they are a direct fit. Thought this might come in handy, he was able to TQ and win the race with the wheeler diff. after three qualifiers and a main event there is no sign of wear on the ball diff.

MUCH better!! i havent broken anything yet, havent even popped a ballcup yet and guess what? the shock caps are aluminum and dont pop off no matter how you build them The arms are softer and the dif rings are stout out of the box. It drives really similar to the Durango.

I wonder if the TS4 a-arms would fit on the Durango?

Now that would be awesome if they hold up. I much perfer the feel of a ball diff. Could he feel the difference in the way it handled?

Even if the arms would fit, you would then have to switch al you rims and tires to the slash rear offset.

He said he couldn't tell the difference. It was the first time he ran that track and it broke in his first practice session, so i'm not sure he would have been able to tell me if it was the dirt he was driving on or the diff, if his truck did not feel right. I personally don't trust it to hold up to the power of that big 550 4pole motor when run on high traction, so until i order new parts I've been ripping the front diff open to check for wear while the battery charges.

You MAY be able to get away with it in the front but not for long in the rear. Large diameter tires and grip will eat it alive quickly!

And i didnt have to balance the truck so that it lands flatter to keep from breaking arms Yes folks i was told to do that, one of the reasons i sold all of my Durango cars. They are a different breed of racers in general.

Forgive my ignorance.. But what diffs were being used. Not familiar with "wheeler" diffs.

Wheeler means a 4wd buggy, which has a ball diff.
