They fit because I changed the td diff case to losi diff case the td diff where
Leaking. The only difference is the bearings
I was wondering how they would run.

Thanks a lot Frank!!

has anyone had issues with the throttle servo over heating
mine started to glitch on the weekend towards the end of the heats. i had thermal tape between them and spaced it up off the chassis and still had the problem.
im going to make a new radio tray out of carbon fibre instead of the aluminium peice that is supplied. hopefully the carbon will displace the heat better than the aluminium
im also thinking of moving the receiver somewhere else and cutting the top off the radio tray to allow more airflow around the servo

Found that the rear center drive shaft rubs on the radio box (where the receiver goes). Anyone else had this problem?

Yes, mine is showing wear where it's rubbing. I'm thinking of heating box and pushing it in. I'm going to try " displacement" before cutting.

Sounds like a good idea. I read a few posts back that someone broke a drive shaft through what looked to me to be rubbing. Don't want to have the same problem

Yea I remember that post and asked what it was rubbing on. He obviously had more track time than me. While working on box I might see about giving more cooling to servo. But I like how clean the rx box stays. I don't like my rx getting dirty so may have to cover it. Spacing box off servo, more venting thru chassis?

any one have try to make the 2 front and rear bulkhead in carbone 5mm tick?
http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD320011

I bent mines(including the chassis bented under the bulkhead, front hinge pin and front suspension mount fr fr and fr rr) after only half gal without big crash...

So i think that replacing the bulkhead by one in carbone remove weight from the car and add flex to remove the possibility to bent the chassis and all alu parts...

Man that must've been one nasty wreck! Gotta expect damage after wrecking like that. I was tired of flex, that's why I like Durango.

that sounds like something really hard to do especially with no real crash. did you bottom out off a huge jump or something??

to be honest, i dont know where i does that...Nitro Challenge or during my last week end practice...

I remember that during the NC in AZ 2 weeks ago, i miss few time the double double triple and was at high speed... but it dosent seems that it was bent until i unscrewed alls parts and checked on a plane surface.

But to be honest, i did'nt notice that the handling was so changed haha

Carbon fiber does not displace heat like aluminum does. It would only make it worse.
