High grip clay where slicks are run, 4K with 4 planetary gears seems to work well.

Thanks Fred. If watering level is good some guys run slicks or very worn tires with sauce. Mostly tires are like electrons/ chainlinks. Do you think I should try 4000 with that situation or go up or down in viscosity?

I'm running 7000 now with 4 plastic planetary gears in my DEST. Little loose if I get in it too hard. Was going to try 5000?

Thanks!!

sounds like a good starting point to me. The carpet where I go is cold as its in a basement and since I run slicks I would say is probably medium traction starting out. I am liking 5K right now for the dex210 plan B I have if I recall correctly. So 4K could be nice.

With the dex20F being so quick to get to the diff, I'll probably experiment more, though the outof the box setup is really nice.

Damn. I just bought a used V1 roller back in January for $100. Although mine also came with a custom graphite chassis.

I dont ever put in the droop screws in the front or rear arms. I have had a front arm crack trying to put in the droop screw in before. If your gonna limit down travel we should be doing it in the shocks. It's more consistent and less damaging in my opinion.

As for the crack on the back side of the arm. It may have been a freak occurrence.

Yeah, I just cracked a couple of front arms right by the droop screw. It wasn't from racing though. They cracked when trying to put the droop screw in.

In case anyone is wondering, I worked with Durango to figure out what the problem was. The droop screw I was using was about 4/100 of a mm larger than it should have been and that was making it crack. Yeah, talk about tight tolerances.
