you'll like the durango. Of all the 4wd buggies I've driven my Durango finally knocked the XX4 off the top of my all time favorite 4wd's.

Anything else I should get for the 410r ? I Have f/f and f/r aluminum pivots , front and rear shock springs on my list so far . Running on high bite hard packed clay so really don`t think I need the shock and axle boots .

I put shock shaft covers and rear CVD boots on the rear. My rear CVDs are looking new.

I also have a chassis weight setup ($40 new, wtf?) and I switched to titanium turnbuckles. The stock 'rango rodends kept popping off the balls.

Loctite your servo saver adjustment. Mine kept backing up allowing the saver to loosen and slam and break.

Switch to lime green springs in the front with 3 hole pistons, and dark green in rear with 3 hole, 35/30 weight... dialed.

The shock boots and axle boots just add to the durability/lack of need to rebuild all the time.

What brand turnbuckles did you get ? Looks like Lunsford doesn`t have them for the buggy . how much does the chassis balancing weight weigh ?

Food for thought. On my old Losi stuff...

I use to use diff thrust bearing washers to trap the rod end onto the ball. Use the concave side facing the shock end. I don't know if it'll work on the Rango but it's an idea.

Just buy some 1.75" lunsford or AE FT turunbuckles... i bought some AE ones and it was 27 bux for all 6.

I think Lunsford's are just a few bux more for the whole set.

I would get a spare spur, a set of front arms, and plastic arm mounts if you are using those....

Other than that... nothing has broke.

Default Awesomeness!

I finally got to race this buggy over the weekend. I did not place anywhere mentionable because I was driving really hard to see where were the limits. The car is so much more capable than I am right now! This is one fun car to drive--maybe even more fun than my 8th scale!

I did have both front steering ball cups pop off at the same time! I will not be in a hurry to change them out just yet because it looked like they saved me from actually breaking something. The Orion 4600 packs were choice and the Novak Kinetic and Ballistic 8.5 is a great combo for this buggy. Ran cool through the 6-min quals and practice.

My speedo died by the end of the night and am not sure what that is all about. I wanted to ask how you guys are mounting yours to the chassis. Someone recommended I double up on the double-sided tape. I do not think this would hurt but is it enough and will it hold together cohesively?

I have mount mounted to a carbon plate that was made by a guy in England... i am thinking about going straight to the chassis though.

I know this car puts a little more strain on motor and ESC though due to no slip in the drive train...

but shouldnt have been enough to kill your speedo
