Cool! Did you get your stock of servo saver's? not that you should need them because I'm pretty sure that was the problem.

My money is on Grapejuice too with Danger in a distant 2nd. He works at the track and actually designs and builds the layout I am told. Hard to beat a guy with the much track time! And of course he has skillz too!!

I know of 6 Durangos in our area so far. There are a few Cats and a handful of B44's still around.

They're taking over my local track as well. There are 5 or 6 of us running them currently.

I had a chance to do some tuning last night and this car is amazing. Went from stock to black springs all the way around with Losi 45wt/37.5wt front and rear and it was pretty dialed, thanks Raul!

The harder you push, the harder it digs. The one thing I did notice is that ride height makes a HUGE difference with this car.

This is good to know because I bet my ride height is way too high. What are you running? 19mm??

I don't have a ride height gauge...

I'll borrow somebody's and get some measurements when I get to the track tonight, but the rear shocks are in the stock location and almost as low as possible (arms level, but that doesn't mean much with this car).

I had it up higher, but it would traction roll during one of our rhythm sections. I'd like to play more with camber today, but the ballcups suck.

Grapejuice, do you guys sell any steering plates? I might need one if I ended up shaving to much off and it breaks. If you guys dont have any I'm gonna order a spare just in case!

I am interested in finding which RPM ball ends fit this car. I like how there is a hole to expose the ball end hex on the stock. I would drill whatever I find that fits to mimic the stock idea . . .
