As for the JQ oils, they aren't out yet and I wouldn't hold your breath waiting to build your kit because of the oils. Might want to get Losi 35 and 40wt shock oil, and another brand's 3k, 5k, and 7k diff oil.
So the JQ oils we won't be seeing anytime soon? Oh well. I checked my DNX408 box and discovered it wasn't 5000 for the cent diff, it was 70000 for the front and cent! Not 7,000, it was 70,000! The rear was 20,000! Wow, should I go up by x10? Or will the ones I originally planned be fine?

Aaron thought the car was faster but required you to be perfect at every corner, so this set up might be ok for qualifying but would be to hard to drive consistently over a longer race.

Id have to say that Aaron doesnt look as fast in that vid as he normally does.
I might steer clear (pardon the pun) of the 12 hubs then, last thing I need is to be more taily!!

while waiting for the newer rods, a spanish driver suggests to use shorter screws, say 4x8mm or 4x6mm, instead of the 4x10 mm screws to secure the servosaver rods in the kits, this way the rodshafts can flex a fraction more on impact
and will likely break less easy

Yes it does look that way......... however, lap times were fairly close to his best.

The track was very patchy that day there was quite few wet corners where the grip was over the top to (most) corners where there was none because of the recent rain.

But yes overall the car didn't look its usual rock solid self. Still thats what testing is about and after testing both the standard bubs (16 deree) and the 12 degree hubs we beleive the 14 degree hubs would be the the ducks guts!!!

Cheers

The oils in the Durango kits were misprinted. There was a zero too many on it.
2k in the front and 7k in the rear will have you do donuts with THECar all day. Vice versa makes way more sense, so it was most likely a mixup when he called the oils. Just get some Ultimate oils and you should be fine in terms of comparable digits on THE Setup-Page's sheets.

Does the Ofna blue truggy box work with THE Car?
Am using the GO box at the moment, but cant use any alignment pegs as the way the pegs are mounted, it lifts the buggy to high to make contact with the flywheel. I can start it, but TBH its a pain in the ass having to line it up manually every time.

Any other common boxes that anyone can reccomend?

i'm using the GO starter box with no problems, just take your time lining it up with the motor out of the buggy & also mark the chassis were the high point of the flywheel is

You could get a DuraTrax starterbox. They're pretty good. If you don't have LiPos for them, you'll need at least 7-cell batteries. 9-cells are best. All I need is two more 9-cells and my cars will be easier to turn over from the power. You could just remove the pegs, take out the engine, line up the chassis with the starting wheel, get a sharpie and draw the placement of the chassis. Essentially outlining it on four sides. It'll make it a lot easier to line it up. Just need to line it up with the lines you drew and it should make it a lot easier to start.

And I'm not getting MY Car until tuesday

Hey Speedy

We have been playing around a bit with the anti-squat since putting in the overdrive.

It seems to suit the way overdrive works. Once again it was more a feel thing for us than anything else.

Cheers
