I just looked at the Dex210 V1 of this buggy manuel and it shows the bleeder cap screws toward the inside Front and Rear Left/Right so that seems to fit better anyways and more treads for the small locknuts.

There's a left and right side shock cap. I run the bleeder screw inwards so dirt doesn't get packed in it

Oh ok im wondering why the manuel doesn't say that though does it matter which way ? Yea that makes sense with the bleeder screws mounted towards the inside .

Also durango has the new front rear hanger with inserts, which allows you to switch antisquat settings quicker.

What weight shock oil do you guys use in the Front shocks with the Blue springs and 2x1.7mm pistons on high traction Clay/Carpet ? I have 30w in the Front shocks but thinking 32w would feel better i know putting in 30w from 27.5w in the Rear shocks it feels much better more dampen.

Is this an add on or will it be part of the newer kits? I was surprised to see a plastic front hangar in the v2 kit when I received it. They don't last. Seems like the exotek is a little cheaper, and perhaps a little easier to adjust since you don't have to disassemble the rear end.

this is an option which not include in the kit, and for setting squat only, toe setting by changing the hub insert

I'm not a fan of exotek quality, the extra few bucks would be worth it for me

I was looking at a butch of pics of the buggy online and most of them have the shocks mounted with the bleeder screws pointing outside of the buggy. I tried that but there is hardly any treads when you fully tighten the small locknut.

Its on page 44 in the manuel.
have a look at the attached image.

if you look very closely, you can see the ejector ring whitness mark.
this is the direction they should be 'popped' onto the shock ball.

it really don't matter if you bleed screw in mounted inboard or outboard, but the OCD among us will most likely have them matching.

best way to do this (they come in pairs) keep a pair for front and a pair for rears, then you will defo get them right, if you take all 4 caps off the trees and mix them up, you could end up not being able to get them paired up.

hope that helps and makes sense.

about the manual, that's a detail I must have missed at the time.

Default Mid to rear motor

Hey guys, new to forum so I'm sure this has been asked already but im running rtr version and bought it with mid motor set up. I wanted it back to rear and all went well other than now forward throttle goes reverse. I'm pretty sure there's no reverse on motor so I have to change something else but not sure what it is yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Depending on how you assembled it, you either need to add/remove an idler gear or assemble the transmission so the motor is on the other side, depending on what configuration you wanted to run.

Were you coming from a rear motor car previously? Sorry if you mentioned this before...
