The DEST is lacking steering. Mainly corner entry. I am going to shorten the front arms. And Lower the roll center. Thanks.
Try the lrc at the front first, shorter arms will stiffen the rc once it starts to roll and give understeer - I think, no experience dest, only buggies.

Does anybody know if you can fit a esc with fan under the jconcepts finisher body? Asked on the jconcepts thread but no reply.

Cheers

Thanks, the standard body is the same the body tests on the fan so that's fine - side pods on the finisher looked lower and wasn't sure it would fit.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Awesome! I still have the car so we'll see where this goes.

i have the old durango 2wd short course truck and it was my favorite for a long while, but it seems like durango stuff is rarely updated. is durango being phased out as a company? i would really like to get this buggy, but concerned if they will dropped...also i will admit, i havent followed the company in a while so if i am speaking incorrectly, i apologize

also, it seems like it is on back order in a lot of places

I wish I could tell you what is going on with Durango. They're part of Great Planes, which seems to be doing great. They've also released a couple of new vehicles within the last six months. At the same time, there are parts shortages and some kits are backordered until fall. It makes me think that they're having manufacturing issues and/or their management just sucks. Considering how parts shortages seem to happen every year, I'm starting to think its the later.

how would you compare the dex210v3 vs say the xray xb2 or the yokomo. i have both of those buggies and they are both tremendous. how is the quality and drivability compare to them?

Something is really wrong with the TD management... I once contacted them asking if they had given up on their 1/10 stadium truck as it's been discontinued for long. They replied saying they would never abandone a platform.

It's been a year since TD gave me that response and no news.

I love my dex 210v2 and have no plans of replacing it but it is discouraging how TD manage their production...
