Look closely at the rear picture. The spacer that moves the rear tower forward attaches to a machined plate that contains the rear camber link mounts. The link mounts are not on the case. The rear wing is moved forward with this orientation as well and you can see that the wing mounts to the gearbox are cut. It would have been a much smarter move to just raise the wing up where it's useful.

Is it me or does that rear tower look like it's mounted higher up on the bulkhead? I haven't looked closed at the stock V2 setup, but this is a new prototype different than the stock V2 right? I was just about to buy a V2…hmmm probably wouldn't get this part.

I am running the v1 style Digity designs towers with the v1 shock package and v1 front arms. Everything is type b or v2. I have all the v2 parts including towers and shock bodies. I just like the feel of my v1 hybrid.

Hello All,

we have released some 'preview' info on a concept part that Jorn used.

have a read through our little article here - http://www.team-durango.com/blog/201...uro-champions/
The shock geometry is exactly the same, what is different is the flex characteristics of the shock tower, gearbox and chassis/bulkheads and also the forward mounted wing position

Jorn did a fantastic job at the Euros, Lee was very unlucky in Leg3, it would have been a great race to watch but unfortunately we never got to see it.

Thanks
Chris

Very nice! Cant wait to try it out on my local circuit. We have a couple tracks that can get very slick during the colder months of the year, and ive always seemed to strugle with rear grip in these conditions..

Keep up the great work! And congrats to Jorn!!! I can forsee the same results in 4wd

Cool. That certainly verifies what I saw in the pictures.

Wheelbase and track width are not the same thing.
The wheelbase is front to rear, centerline to centerline.

Oh you're right. Didn't pay very good attention. So it theory it's possible it wasn't a +8mm chassis then.

I think the tlr 22 one is popular. I'm still on my first plastic one and have had the alloy steering plate since day one, now I'm going to strip one at the big race next weekend
