A +80 would be even more stable but have less steering!

I am running box stock v2, with super soft IONs, mostly the same exact tire as everyone else including my sons car.

Any suggestion on how to dial some steering into this?
Before you change anything else. Reduce your front droop. Turn those set screws on your arms in 1 turn. Then keep adjusting it till you are happy with it. THe more you reduce front droop, the more steering you will have.

@tc5 man: have a look at Jorns car, here you can see the cut outs on the wing for the shocks.

@Marco926: the outdrives from the gear diff should be long enouth, the older outdrives fron the ball diffs on the v1 were be a bit to short, whene you used full droop on the rear!

Ok it looks like he cut in front of the wing.

Or mounted the wing back il need a new one to mount it back though.

If you guys want to run the shocks behind the arms, the shock angle is wrong. The shocks should be perpendicular to the arms. In the current layout the shocks lean forwards. They bind slightly and you'll wear shock shafts and seals faster. The solution is easy. Take a V1 rear tower and cut the two legs with the mounting holes off and use them to space the tower back. You'll need longer screws and still have to do something different for the wing mount braces. If you don't have the tower spaced back, keep your shocks in front.

If you use the V1 Rear shock tower than you need the V1 shocks also im guessing ?

Seems like a lot of work .

No. You use whatever shock tower you have. You just cut up a V1 rear tower because you are using the lower part as a spacer to move the main tower back when you run the shocks behind the arms. The thickness is perfect. A V2 tower isn't flat on both sides so you can't use one as a spacer.

I wouldn't worry about angle to be honest. It's worth trying at the expense of making a few cuts in your wing. Here is my shock angle. I added spaces to move the shock away from the camber link, which makes the angle a little more extreme, but there is no binding.

A shock should always be perpendicular to the suspension arm. Durango designers are creative but they have a fundamental lack of understanding of basic suspension design.

Yeah. Like I posted previous, I mistakingly had it running 3 gear, but reversing the motor direction (in the ESC) - gearbox was same orientation.

I dropped the missing 4th gear in this past saturday (and reset ESC) and put a mod-motor in it.

I thought it was a little twitchy to be honest...more testing and setup work to do. feel like it has plenty of steering tho.
