Just a FYI... GO Engines are not a direct fit. Must break out the dremel.
Center diff is leaking sitting in the car, need to check that.
Plastics could have been organized a little better for this caliber car.
Engine mounting plate is genuis.
Overall a great build only disappointing part was the engine not fitting.

Pics and videos coming soon.

Build them correctly.

Does it leak between the gear and case or from the outdrive ?

I'm starting my build today. The reason I asked that question was because I read on this thread a lot of people was comming up with a leaky center diff and if I needed to do something extra I want to be prepared.

it leaks from the gasket/spur gear.
when checking the gear mesh i noticed that the clutch bell was all oily after rolling the car a few times.

I'm considering to pick up a DNX408 for next season. I'm currently pushing my MBX6 but I think it's time for something new. Durango has definately proven itself in the past (electric 10th scale offroad) and it's certainly drawn my attention.

Got to sell my MBX6 first though

@SPEEDSKI that looks incredible.

Thanks to Bradley's Fineline Designs for getting me the bodies so fast and as always, his work is just bad ass.

If anyone notices, yes I did mod the wing some.
