For all those interested in carbon parts for the durango. I have spoken to Bruce at xtreme RC and he said if there is enough interest he will make the parts for a Durango
Send him an email at [email protected] expressing your interest and hopefully we can get them made

Also guys the 70000 fluid that came in the kit. Is that equivalent to AE 7000cst fluid?

Would it be enough if TD makes different anti-squat inserts so the user can combine them and raise the arm? like putting 2deg in the rear and a 4deg in the front? or putting the same 2 in the front upside down?

I did the rear end mod on mine by placing 6 2mm spacers between the chassis and the rear hinge pin mounts. One for each screw that holds the hing pin mounts to the chassis. You also have to dremel/file 2mm from the part of the rear bulkheads that hang over the front hinge pin mount. This makes room for the front mount to be raised 2mm. I also used 2mm longer screws in each position. Durango has some spacers that work great. Part # TD709004.

Question for everyone: What headers are you using? I'm currently running a Werks B6/ Werks 2057 pipe combo and the pipe/header has pretty much burned through the side of the body after 1 raceday. I overheard someone say something about Novarossi making a "tight fit" header?

Anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

Thanks Fullsyzz.

Still learning pipe/ manifold stuff... Which would be better for the 2057? Short or long? Trying to keep the economy up and the power smoth


Sorry if that's a dumb question, been an electric guy for 10+ years

Sorry Chedda, I don't know which one would be best for that pipe.
