Mount lower front shock mounted outside hole on arm and one other thing is I'm down to a 1mm shim under the ball stud on the inner rear camber link and rear hubs mounted in the middle on the arm. Everything else the same.
Thanks for the setup info Steve.
I've been using your setup and it's been great.
Did you stay with the 1.3 in the front or went to 1.2 using 4 hole?
Also - how far back have you place the shorty lipo from the servo?
Is the placement still the same from the picture in petitrc?


thanks

No problem! Glad it works for you! 1.2's in front and battery placement is the same.

Default New Build

Super stoked..!



I just got my new kit today and now it's time to build. I picked up the viper 13.5 combo to try out for 13.5 stock 2wd buggy $ a savox 1258 servo. I run tekin in all my other rigs but the price was good so curious how it will compare.

Any info for the build or on viper would be awesome.

Thx,
Kevin

Do yourself a favor and download all the tips and trick sheets associated with car...... The manual is poor. These are located on the team Durango website under "in the pits".

Car is finally complete. just need to add speed passion 11.5t and some tyres would be good.

I have just changed over from on road to off road, and real happy with my choice of the DEX210. they look great.

Set up is gonna be a challange.

Have a look at pic let me know what you all think.

Set up is cake, just use Steve's (Nopsing) that's been posted here. Link is not to many posts distant. Basically, shorty lipo (middle) 30wt front / 25wt rear. 4 hole pistons all around. Drk Green front springs (or equiv), Lt Red rears (or equiv). 22mm ride height. See Steve's set up sheet for complete details.
