They are good. Much better then alot of "boutique type" shops out there, and they produce a good product. On the other hand, has anybody noticed a difference in Durango parts availablility? Seems some things keep slipping back a month. Diff nut and screw are now backordered until July. Thats a pretty important part to not be available. I really dont want this to turn into another RB5 when it came out and couldnt get anything for it for months after release deal.

Its personal preference i run saddle packs one all the forward with a foam spacer between making the other one all the way back to try to balance it out more but i also run on a tight technical track RM3 for me found that to work best

how does everybody think about the durability of the durango springs.
I have my durango now for about 4 months and my buddy has a brand new one.

our rango's weigh exactly the same, also setup is the same. but I have 6mm more preload on the rear shocks than his .

same stock springs

Over time you have to change the spring as they are wear items. Usually you can get a year off a set, but if you are using the same setup week after week, makes sense yours have more preload.

It could be his shocks have been built with more rebound or yours have old o-rings that have a lot of swelling. Try swapping springs and check the results.

All shock springs will fatigue over time. If your car is one of the first kits and you've been racing it often springs may last around 6 months to a year.

Always store your car with the wheels suspended also, this makes them last longer.

When I ran this car, I found the durango springs to fatigue REALLY fast... far faster than losi or x-gear springs.
