Just ordered mine this morning and a but load of parts. That payment hurt a little hope it's worth it. I'm sure I will catch some crap for buying something with little support like when I bought my Durango DEX 210 .

Curious about this new car. Does it use more standard size bearings like 8x5s, 15x10s & 10x5s? The first version used some really odd sized bearings that were difficult to come by at times.

Wondering if anyone had a problem with the screws for the spur gear to pully? I got my kit and the screws are not the right ones to small. I hope when I get to the other bags of parts the appear.

Any one
Made my own screws any way.
I am also looking for some smaller spur gears that fit this pully can someone tell me where I can find them or other brands that will work?

I notice the same problem too, ended up using 3x6 countersunk screw it seems holding up pretty good. Still too early to tell until I try it on the track.

Everything else fit nicely without extra shims, unlike my TRF417X......

Xray spur will fit have not try any other brands yet.

Havefun!

Hello

You're right, one batch of spur gear holder has a little problem with screws length.

Team Magic already checked this problem for the next batches. You could use longer screws to easy solve this problem.

Not only are the screws to short but it seems like the tap of the hole is to big. The screws are very sloppy in the hole.

Why is one of the servo mounts longer than the other? Is that so u can put servo tape under it to eliminate one mount for more flex?

About spur gear holder, you can contact your local hobby shop to ask for an eventual exchange from Team Magic.

I have no information about servo mount, the one we got on our kits are the same, could you please post a picture ? Personally, I use only one servo post, as I described here: http://blog.hrcdistribution.com/tips...S_II_tip_7.pdf

Thats why I was asking. I thought it might have been that way for that reason. I'll post a few pics this afternoon of it mounted and unmounted. The local shops do not carry any T.M. parts I bought on line from Amain Hobbies.
I put one of the spacers under it for now.
I found some Kimbrough spur gears in my arsenal that fit the pulley too sense no one replied thank you.
