Not that good. I didn't have the right tires at all. Had to barrow my buddies tires for my b6d so I practiced with that. I'm going back this week again since the dirt track is getting a rebuild for the 1st race of the jconceps winter series. Mayfield, Alex K, JP and a few more top notch drivers are coming.

Mod with the Durango and stock with the b6d. I've been running stock with the Durango up until a few weeks ago when I got the associated.

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

I'm picking up some of those hexes. My car is almost entirely Exotek at this point. I need the front hex axles but those are out of stock.

Just FYI, the B5 front axels work great. Steel for like 9 bucks.

I was just going to say the same thing. The only difference is the tiny spacer that goes on the back of the axle (or front for wide track) is just a bit too narrow so you might want to use some locktite to hold it in place.
Picked up the rears!

Yeah,the stock covers are getting a little hard to find.. Lol

Doesn't STRC also make a cover for these?

Well it's the final setup week for this car before it actually gets to race against other cars. I've been so busy building other kits I haven't spent time with this car since I did the initial setup. We had a track change in between and now there are some BIG air jumps to contend with.

The car will fly. I had to trim the wing a bit and I'm still getting the balance right but I'm probably at a 1 bad landing per 10 minutes. This car likes to stay on its feet that's for sure. A few two wheel bumbles and the car will usually fall back down upright.

I find it a little hard to remain smooth and effortless around the track. So I changed to caster to 30 and reduced the rear droop a bit to try and settle it down. I'll know tomorrow.

I'm still not confident with the diff. I just don't like it and it feels wrong. The car is not showing any bad habits though.

I think I just need stick time. I don't expect to come out the gate 100% because I'm running an unfamiliar car and brand. Too many years with AE and these cars just feel different.
