Good to hear the changes helped.
RCTech has a minimum post limit for being able to post pics but I can't remember what that limit is.
It's pretty easy to post pics though. Just scroll down in your post or response to the "Manage Attachments" button and browse for the photos you want and upload one at a time. The difficult part is reducing the file size to meet the max file size requirements set by Rctech.

Yes, It is worth it to change the suspension parts to v2 and perhaps the ball cups as well to remove some slop. Those are the main parts that make a difference on the track.

C&M motorsports made some parts for the DETC410 but I don't know if they still make them anymore.

take a look at the Durango website and you will see what's new in the V2 kit.
The arms, c-hubs and hub carriers are all new high carbon material. they are stronger and lighter than the original parts.

It's really easy to push too hard... I do it too. Were you running the same tires as Saturday? If so, fresher tires will help. If you are pushing on power, you can add a little anti-squat by adding .05mm shims under the forward/rear arm mounts. or simply reduce your front droop by 0.5mm. Without personally looking over your car, It's hard to make suggestions on a forum as I have no way of knowing how your car is setup overall. It's a big picture kind of thing as changes in setup are all inter-twined and have an effect on the overall balance of the car's performance but we try.

A couple of teaser images of my new carbon bits for the DETC410
I have designed both with or without the Transponder mounting tabs and will be track testing them at our next race outing.
