Default Box stock and setup

I'm thinking of buying this chassis. To run on carpet stock rubber 17.5 tc. And usgt.
Would I need to get any parts(besides spares parts) or is just good box stock?

I know there is some setups from v1 would they work on v2
Could some of you pros post up a setup for stock 17.5

When building is there lots of shimming needed?
How is wear and slop?

The v1 setups will carry over to the v2 kit.
The main thing I'd suggest is getting the aluminum servo mount as the plastic is not stiff enough to be consistent. Get a variety of springs and sway bars and you are good to go.

The kit goes together nicely and the manual is one of the best on the market.
Just pay attention to the details and you will be good to go.

Thanks YoDog, I have built 3 Durango buggys so looking foreward to this one. Now I just need to get some of my buggy racing friends to get road cars also so we can start something here in OKC.

Do I want to use soft arms and hubs or hard for outside pavement low grip racing?

I ran both the original soft plastics and the V2 plastics on medium/low bite tracks. Car is way more consistent and takes a set into and out of corners much better with V2 plastics.

Hello All,

I recently picked up a v1 and I am currently setting it up for VTA. Will any other spurs work with this car. I need to put a smaller spur on it. No one seems to have the Durango ones in stock and I am not running VTA with a 116 lol. Thanks for all your help. I cant wait to run this thing.
