No not at all. Everyone knows that its not the ride its the rider. But I don't think you were there? Were you? So how can you say things with such confidence. It's unsettling.

How come you didn't finish your buggy main last weekend Frankie?
I broke a rear camber link.

What I really want to know is how can Durango pick up so many big name drivers and where are all the JQ pro guys??

And why are there sooooo many issues with the JQ car?? I mean now even the ful tank won't seal properly.

That had to be just about the best post I've ever read on rctech before.

So I finally received it and spent the last few days putting it together.

Some basic observations (good/bad):

1. PAY ATTENTION to the manual. No descriptions...just pics.
2. Some parts/screws used are in other bags (one labeled "misc")
3. Os Motors DONT fit unless you manually adjust some things (pretty easy)
4. Awesome build! Fits together like legos!
5. Parts are HIGH quality. I cant see anything breaking (though i am sure i can break something the way I drive)
6. Break,throttle linkage a bit tricky. I used their website to do as manual is not detailed enough. I highly recommend this!
7. Rear springs need changed. Kit ones WAY to bouncy. Losi green is much better here.

Overall, great kit. Excited to drive it. Just waiting on new receiver to finish and off to the track I go.

More to follow once I drive it!

PS: One suggestion I will say to those at Durango that read this is: Make the ball stud caps come ON the tie rods!!!!!!!!! I HAAAAATTTEEEEE putting those things on. Your hands go numb after a while...as well as blister up!

Had to get that one out. Anyways, thanks Durango. Job well done.
