Does anyone know when the new springs and c-hubs will be available?

I've been wrong before.
Hi guys, have confirmed via the Australian TD distributor that the 'update' bag is indeed all the V2 upgrades to essentially turn the V1 into the latest spec V2. Email response as follows:

this is what’s going to be included as notified by Team Durango:

V2 Fuel Tank

V2 Radio Box

Combined PT and Throttle Mount

Redesigned front bumper and front gear cover

Improved shock diaphragms

Redesigned wing mount


We just heard back from the last night; hope this helps.


Better snap up a V1 kit while you still can at the run-out price, as you're gonna come out a whole lot cheaper buying one of these plus the 'update' bag instead of the new V2 kit

So, do you think that the above PNs are just varying amounts of the items you listed from the Oz TD distributor?

The Ascendancy clutch only has .9, 1.0, and 1.1...so are you saying use 2 of the 1.0 and 2 of the .9?

Try running 2 .9 and 2 1.0, also if you ever go back to your old setup try running 2 1.0 and a .9 this really helps out when it gets slippery

TBH i really don't know where the part no. comes into it, as it look like it's been quoted wrong on several sites (inc TD's).

Just order the 'update' bag (which is what i've done).

I'm considering starting with my 4 shoe clutch with .9 springs due to the lighter shoe...I'm thinking .9 with the lighter shoe will feel more like the 1.0 with the heaver shoe.

Hi guys.

Any of you having success with the durango fuel gun on the v2 tank ?
the gun works great!! filling up the chassis and servos and spur gear with fuel..but can only get about 1/4 in the tank is it just me ? or are you all having this issue? its like the inner lip of tank block the flow holes of the gun ?

considering the Dynamite Fuel gun..because it looks like it has a smaller nozzle.? any luck with this one ?
also just been told the TeamC fuel gun fits by my local Dingo dealer.. is this true ?

Drill out the flattened edge and dismiss the original bushing. Use two flanged bearing size 3x6x2,5 or 3x6x3, some shims and a regular 3mm bolt.

That did it for me.

i've done all i can think of to get my buggy started with this new engine, and i'm at the point where i'm going to grind out the chassis ... i am using the dynamite ready to run starter box, everything is aligned properly and i even put in a slightly thinner wheel from another started box.

The question i have is when i do grind out the chassis, is it really going to hurt anything? I'm only making the whole wide enough to get the starting wheel up in to contact the flywheel just not sure how of the chassis to grind out. If anyone has pictures of what they have done, i would greatly appreciate it. It is almost to the point that i am considering not using this until next year when i will have more money to spend on another starter box

I dont have any pictures of my chassis....but I did grind mine a little....I just kept with the same "bevel" edge angle from the left to right of the chassis, and opened her up a bit....I didnt measure how much, but I would guess about maybe 1/8" on each side...I ran all last year and there was not ANY problems that I found in doing that...just dont get too crazy with the opening because you dont want to make is so large that rocks and debris have a better chance of slipping in there.
