The original v3 is 17 degrees.. v4 uses 19 degree which will make it more stable over bumps and give it more high speed steering and less low speed. Depending on your setup, you may or may not need the caster blocks as most of the time indoors, its small tight and technical, so more low speed steering is required. You will see the most benefit of a dual slipper on slippery and bumpy tracks.

I haven't had a chance to check out either track yet. I'm actually in Seattle for a few more days but when I get back we will have to plan a track day. So far I've been to OCRC, SCVRC, and West Coast before they closed. I definitely wanna check out Pegasus and LRH.

What kinda tires do you run at each spot? I should probably mount up a set before I got out. Thanks!

At lrh, I run bar codes all around, the gold compound. At pegs during the days or during the summer I prefer calibers m3 all around. But lately, since it's been cooler at night we have been running bar codes with good results.

I ran about 6 full packs through my v3 last night, crashed and rolled it multiple Times and it never even phased it. My friend with his v3, hit a PVC pipe so hard, you heard a crack and saw a chunk of pipe fly onto the track. His v3 was perfectly fine, but the pipe not so much. Lol. These Durango's are tanks, I love it!

Calibers vs Bar Codes eh? Seems like calibers are so much different than barcodes….Is Pegasus more loamy and dirt rather than clay? Much taller step tread and barcodes being a pretty low tread height tire...

Ya I can't wait to race mine again either, parts will be in tomorrow. Do I really need to invest in the rr alum hanger for durability? I haven't yet but I was thinking I should

I busted two of them and a rear bulkhead before I got the aluminum ones. Haven't had a problem since then. Was a good upgrade for me.

I want to ask the folks that switched to the v4 , how many seconds a lap the fancy slipper and unis have knocked off your lap times ? Thinking about it , but I am struggling to see the performance benefits .

Saddle packs or shorty across the rear.

Just need to finish installing the electrics and take it out for a test drive....
How about some updates BMan! How do you like the 3Diff vs the Slipper? Is it possible to do a 3Diff setup with the regular battery orientation? front to back stacking instead of left to right…..???

Thanks!

Do you mean just the slipper, or the whole car?

I have been giving updates all along. They are in production as we speak, a few people already put deposits on the first batch. I like the 3 diff better as of right now. Car is planted! I haven't tried the slipper in the new layout yet, I'm enjoying the center diff. I guess you could run the saddles in stock config but one of the reasons was to get more weight rearward. You could run a shorty across the back or pushed up. As for the chassis and components, it's all my design and is produced on the CNC miller. Pm me for more details if your interested. Thanks..........

I was thinking the slipper and unis are really the only material difference between the new car and old car. I was hoping to hear from people that had updated old cars how their lap times have changed

Its not going to be a laptime changer, at least not extreme. Its like big bore shocks, or a better balanced set of tires. They feel better, and it will/may eliminate a bobble, or even a crash or 2. So it may not be reflected as much in a single lap, but more like 2-3 less marshalls over the entire race is where the difference will be noticed. Make sense?
