To run the v2 front arms, you will also have to run the v2 shocks. The v2 shock bodies are shorter to make up for the higher mounting point on the flat arms.

Does the v2 have different rear shock bodies?

No, only the front are different. The only difference is the body length. Your current top, bottom, seals, & shaft are the same. I imagine you could use internal spacers bellow the piston on the shaft to get the same effect (shorter movement inside the shock body), but there will probably be some trade off in how the shock feels.

Are the front shock shafts shorter also or just the bodies. I'll have to get this squared away.

Yes, they are shorter. 42.5mm compared to the v1's 44mm

Also the v1 rear shock shaft is 55mm but the v2 is 52mm this is because of the v2 rear tower which is 2mm lower and has 2 more shock mounting point

It's always been 52mm, the old kit came with 55mm which was way too long. It was always best to replace them with the coated upgrade shafts which are 52mm. In my opinion the shafts on both front and rear have always been too long. Need to remove 4mm from the front and rear using internal spacers or the droop screw for the car to handle better.

Anybody have any set-up or driving tips on getting the buggy to land better off big jumps from an outdoor track?

Off the big table top even when I land all four wheels on the downslope I find it wants to cartwheel or barrel roll and in lieu I have to skip off the top instead. On the big double-single sometimes after landing the car will drift sideways in a powerslide.

As I type this I realize that my issues happen when I land on the downslope, but if I overshoot the landing and land of the flat or the run-up to the next jump I am fine. Any idea what that can be?

You race in Sudbury. I think there are some Team Durango Drivers in your area like Rick Endler. Does he also race at your local track. Perhaps you can walk over and ask him for some help. I am sure he would be happy to help you out. What are you running in terms of setup? Perhaps you can ask Rick for a setup sheet, or PM me for one.

Jorns under the hood from the 1/10th Offroad Euros.

http://www.neobuggy.net/2014/07/17/u...orn-neumann-2/

Interesting Rear Shock tower setup obviously allowed more flex in the rear for the loose conditions, V1 rear arms and front bearing mod for 12mm hex I assume.

From link:

Chassis: Team Durango DEX210 V2
Motor: Team Orion
ESC: Team Orion
Battery: Thunder Power
Tyres: JConcepts Barcodes (Control)
Radio & Servos:Futaba 4PKS-R / Futaba
Body: Team Durango
Notes: New rear shock tower setup, shorter wheelbase and shorter body.

I'm wondering if the note he described of shorter wheelbase for front and rear is done on purpose, or just because when converting to front and rear hex the differences between TD wheels and other 2wd wheels the offset were not taken into account.
