couple things you could try (not all at once); move your battery forward, lower your front ride height a mm or two, softer front spring, less castor, shorter front links, angled front links, more toe-out.

find a good tuning guide and learn how to figure it out yourself.

And next time, ask a little nicer. You're not entitled to a response from anybody here so don't sound like a spoiled kid when you ask.

if you look at mine, I got around this by cutting off the nose section of a type b chassis and using that at the front. It worked out pretty well. Pretty easy to do if you have a type b chassis sitting around, which is what I had before I built my own chassis.



I must say, yours is quite an excellent build. The machining is very nice and the layout is a bit better thought out than mine for sure. Now for the important part, how does it drive?

Anyone have the rtr version of this car?? I'm thinkinking of getting one and just wondering if they are any good-durable? Wondering if the stock servo is good because almost every rtr I've ever bought I had to replace the servo with in the first couple of weeks!! Also any other upgrades that are a must? Thanks for any input

I have seen alot of these sold and raced at my LHS. have not heard of too many failures. I built the kit (same as rtr without electronics) super durable and great quality. Fast car with tons of adjustment it was a great buy IMO

I finally had a chance to directly compare them side by side. As you probably noticed with the front arms, you had to grind away a little from the arms or the bulkhead to make the arms work since the Durango arms are so much beefier than the AE. The hinge pin sizes are also different so that had to be modded as well.

At the rear the same problems exists. I'm not entirely sure the rear Durango hub will fit on the AE arm. If they do, drilling out the arm for the larger hinge pin may weaken it. I was actually looking into integrating the 210 arms onto my B44.1.

Kit did the same thing a little while ago, if the rtr is hard to find now too their probably weeks from releasing the V2.
Once their sold out, they haven't been shipped from the manufacturer to the retailers for a few months.

That's a good sign for those waiting on the new kit. 2 out of 2 places that I checked they are discontinued or not found.

You should find smoking deals on V1 rollers and a few with electronics once the V2 is up for pre order though. Not a bad way to go.

Yes I'm running them currently on my cubed.

I had a chance to compare the rear hubs. The biggest problem is that they are roughly 5mm wider going off memory due to the large diameter bearing that captures the cvd. I'm hoping I can mill down the hinge pin area far enough but its a lot of material.

The hinge pin changes from ae's fake 3mm to a true 3mm. Its not much material. The xfactory carbon rear arms are very strong.
