Need advice on belt tension, how tight should they be? My car seems to have a lot of drag in the drive train?

I cannot remember the position I am using for my belt tensioners, but let me suggest you swap out the original belts and use Tetsujin ones instead.

They are a lot more flexible and will sure loosen up the drivetrain a bit.

I am using part numbers TT-7299 and TT-7410 for front and rear belts respectively.

I used to source my spare parts from Tower Hobbies but they are really slow to restock.

Any other online shop where I can buy some parts for my DETCV2??

Thanks!

Car is working good now. Found a bunch of rubber gunk in the spur gear and pulleys from rubber build up on a track I ran on a couple of times.

Does anyone know if drive belts from other cars will fit the Durango ? Maybe the Xray T4 or the associated Tc7.

I already tried one-tooth longer belts, front and rear, but the cams cannot compensate for the extra length, so you end up with too loose belts. It is as if Team Durango did not want to fit the other half of the diameter of the cams with adjustable positions. I guess they figured the diff would end up in an undesirable position.

I have not tried shorter belts, but I bet they do not work either, so spare yourself of the trouble.

Only belts of the same length will work, but cannot advice on any other brand using them.

Thanks gtrmx, I was looking for spares so I guess I will wait for the Durango belts to become available. It's a 2 hour drive to the closest on road track just wanted to have spares next week.

Default Price reduced

Wow, that's such a low price. Does anyone know why they dropped the price so much?

And a lot of parts are getting VERY hard to find. Might be worth it just for the shocks and suspension pieces.
