I think there are more hop ups out there now from the aftermarket than from Durango themselves. We need/want more hopups!

If it's flexing, then you need to re-set your EPAs. Switching to an aluminum mount won't necessarily be an improvement, since that would just put more strain on your throttle servo and cause it to fail. Proper set-up on the linkages is absolutely crucial.

You need to sort out your linkages and set your EPAs. Sure, a metal post wont flex....but the extra strain will be put on your servo and you'll probably end up killing it.

Here's TD's guide on setting up your linkage:
http://www.team-durango.com/blog/?p=2100

You'll need to refer to your radio's manual for setting your end points if you are unsure.

I started this thread on another forum for links to other TD tips etc and other info which you may find useful:

hi there,

i have set my linkage up using the Durango guide but it is the initial push of the servo causing it to move forwards. i dont think it is putting strain on the servo as i have always been quite good setting up EPA but i think the post moves an awful lot. it seems to move forwards when i try to go for the throttle.

many thanks

lewis

I wanted to thank Frank L for mentioning something About Nankin Hobbies a few pages back. I gave them a call today to check on ordering a os speed piston, rod, and sleeve and the gentelman answering the phone was very nice and got me all fixed up and gave me a good deal as well. Good customer service is hard to find nowadays so I am sure I will be ordering from them again in the future.

On a side note is anyone experencing brake fade and if so has anyone tried different pads and disc to correct it? If so, which ones are you using?

Great to hear Joe! Nankin always goes above and beyond


As far as the pads go, I use Losi pads on my car. Only time I ever get any "fade" is when the front disc gets wet from fuel
