Well guys I just ordered the Durango 410pro 2010edition today, I am getting back into the hobby and from research and what people are telling me this is the car of cars to have in the 4wd buggy class.. I have been in the hobby for years an was a factory driver for a handful of companies back 5-6 years ago.

I am here to ask questions for once as a non factory driver and to get help from you Durango guys on this car... I for once am on the other end of the questions, and asking questions lol... I used to run for novak, xray, trinity, parma, and hope to get my skillz dusted off after 8 years away...

how should I build the car any inside team tips I should know about?

How is the kits stock setup?

what color wheels does the 2010pro edition come with?


I have it outfitted with a Airtronics 150oz of torque .10transit time servo
5.5 Orion Vector Pro
Orion CarbonMolecular 4500 45c lipo
LRP SXX TCspec V. 2 ESC
Airtronics M11x radio

Get on the Durango web site, there are a few building tips on there: http://www.team-durango.com/blog/?cat=3

Also on the Durango web site you can find set-up sheets, as well as on petitrc, never ran the stock box set-up but the 2010 spec does come with diff oils that are a good starting place, what type of track will you be running on?

Kit wheels are yellow.

What gives more on power traction in back? -2/2 or -2/4. I run -2/4 because it adds some more kickup correct? Looking for a little more on power traction. Also will a shorter or longer rear link help? I run it longer now to help traction in the the corners. Is this correct or do I have it opposite? Thanks guys....

To the guy who just bought the 2010 spec....

soften the car up right away...
go 10-3 or 7-3 in the diffs, light green springs in front, dark green in the rear, 35/30 shock oil, 3 hole pistons all around. That will be a good starting point, especially if you are running on high bite tracks.



B-Man, a shorter rear link will let the rear end come around more, I would try sticking with the long link and getting the 1* rear hubs... best of both worlds

Your front will almost always be heavier than the rear.

10/5 is a good starting point, but some of the team drivers go even higher, 12k and 15k.

No, heavier in the front, car has a lot of steering as it is, start with 10k in the front and 3-5k in the rear.

Don't know what size track you will be running on but may want to re-think that 5.5, I run a 7.5 LRP and that thing MOVES!!! I can pass B44 on our short straight during races, ~75' long. 5.5 is probably a bit much

As mentioned previously by others, the car certainly is a performer. You have made a good decision.

Definately softening up the suspension makes this car more forgiving. I have posted my latest set up (not on the Durango site yet) here for you to go through. It is for for high traction - short or long track, it should not matter. It is similar to Hupo Hongil's set set up used in the US earlier this year. It is a bit more forgiving.



As for motor choice - I personally would not recommend a 5.5. As suggested, a 7.5 is more than enough, as this car accelerates like no other at this time. A 9.5 feels like a 7.5 in this car (from personal experience) as far as acceleration goes. I have seen the car run with these wild motors and whilst spectacular, it makes the car crazy fast and balloons the tires on the straights - all a bit to much.

For diff oils - I generally run 20K in the front and vary it in the rear depending on the steering characteristics I want. I use the 20K as it seems to keep the car nice and stable in the front end and takes away some of the "steery" feeling of the car.

Cheers - and again - GREAT choice of ride.

Cheers

Darryn

WoW thanks a lot budd, I totally appreciate the help! I was actually going to opt for the Orion 7.5 Vector motor, cuz I figured it would react like a 7x2 brushed motor in a 4wd that I remembered for way back when lol... but my LHS owner said I should get the 5.5 because the track is huge and blue grooves so the power can really be used...... He runs a 4.5 Vector! ahah

Who is making 23.5mm lipos still? I need to pick up another set, but I need the positive in the back, negative in the front on the right side of the car.
