I got all the springs this week and went down 1 rate at the rear but with the extra lead back there I think it might be a bit too soft now so I'll probably go back to the kit springs.
That was a great review Jimmy!

Let us know how the race goes.

Holy Crap!! I finally got this thing built and got to race it this weekend and WOW!! I finished 1st in the A main by a lap and I have only been racing for 4 months. I was wondering if I was crazy for spending BIG $$ on this buggy but this thing is worth every dollar. I ran the basic setup from the build and it was spot on. This buggy flies and drives better than any car I have and I have almost all of them. B44, BJ4 worlds, Kyosho zx5 fs. If you want to get into 10th scale 4wd or want a great built buggy this is it.

Regarding the review from Jimmy @ oOple:

http://www.oople.com/rc/photos/reviewdurangodex410/

ANOTHER HIGH QUALITY REVIEW!!! I've always enjoyed and love all the reviews at oOple... The style, pace, and the tone of the review is more quality then many of the RC mags out there...

Regarding this car... GOD I WANT ONE NOW! This car seems VERY VERY high quality and buggy that every 4wd 1/10th buggy fans have been waiting for!

Are the Durangos going to be distributed in the US? If so, are you guys going to be distributing it through some channel like Tower Hobbies, Stormer, Hobby People, and etc.?

I think if Team Durango can sell to Towers (largest hobby/model online retailer in the US), you guys would be golden...

I've never really paid much attention to the prototype Durango, but now that I've read the review of the production version, from an engineering point of view, it is one of the most beautiful machines I've ever seen!!!

Can't wait for someone at my local track to get one of these so I can look at it and oooh and ahhh at it in person!

I just got my shop set up as a dealer here in the US. I am working on my first order now. I will start off small and see how it does.

Cool, great news. As soon as I recover from my initial purchase and subsequent debt I'll be ordering a hell of a list of spares from you.

When you get a list together email me and I will get it all ordered and cut you a deal. Prepaid special orders will get price breaks.

Ran the car again last night, made some changes and got good results.
Snapping off better times on the clock.
The car is now becoming much more stable with the addition of weight.
I run on clay\top soil combo indoors. Med bite.
Anyone wanting help with a starting s/u for this kind of track feel free to ask.

I ordered front and rear arms, a complete diff, extra bearings, and shock parts. I am going to order cvd's, driveshafts, spur gears, and some other misc. parts soon.

I have the rear weight plate and side weights on mine and it is spot on.

Odd question, or maybe not odd, but does anyone know of a ball diff that will fit the gearbox of this car and mesh properly? I'd like to have both to try as I'd imagine there may be at least one surface out there where a ball diff is better. Plus they're easier to work with, lighter, and, I understand them.

Something from serpent perhaps?

There will another car released soon from Durango that will have ball diffs as well as less alum. More of an economy version if you will.
It will be in the price whelm of the other four wheel cars on the market.
So I sure if you can wait a while you can get the correct part for the car.
In the mean time play with different oils and gain some knowledge on how these diffs work.
Once you understand them you may not have a need for the ball diffs.
