if you ever came to the races you could have just driven mine.lol if you need any help w/ setup just ask or come up to bula and drive mine its glued there. if you like how it feels ill gladly give you my complete setup. then you can adjust to your liking form there. and remember reinos marinade is your best friend there.
I wish i could be up at more than i have! After the holidays i will. Actually a couple of days ago i just finished the build. But i didn't even know someone at the track had a 410 till i read you did. Actually that's good cause i'm sure i'll need some guidance.

Default Rear traction handling

Miket3,
Also, if you need more stability from the rear of the car, you can lengthen the rear camberlinks and move to inside lower hole on shock tower, car becomes much easier to drive and less chance of looping/rotating out suddenly. Something else you could experiment with when fine tuning your ride.

I haven't driven my rango yet but if it sucks I will come on here and share. I know they have crappy materials for axles and the servo system sucks. We will se when lrp sends my speedoa back. Fwiw I'm a pretty fast driver so I will know if it's as good as this thread says. I do watch the slower guys running them and they look like they are hitting above there heads so I'm excited to see what I can do.

In the hands of more experienced drivers, it seems to just be an unbeatable rocket! It definitely ups our game for those of us who don't have the opportunity to practice/race as often as we'd like.
One of the things I've had to whatch is the set screws on all CVD locations, regardless of type of "blue" loctite used. After about 6-8 races, they tend to loosen up on mine (thankfully I enjoy the r/c maintaining side also).

I'll experiment with them both and see what feels good to me.

I also printed off the hudy offroad set up book, so I'll start studying.

make sure you hit the flat part of the pin w/ one grub screw and make sure the other side has a grub screw in it also. mine havent loosened up once w/ blue locktight. im still running the 1.5mm.

+1 the outside hole on the hubs helps this too. you'll want to get the jconcepts offset ball cups for the hub so you can maintain droop.

I tried that method and although it lasted a while...Something about 2 opposing forces is unsettling to me...while one is pushing one way the other is pushing the opposite way leaving the pin to break free when just one loosens slightly. IMO best way, not recommended for all but for me...RED loctite that sucker and if u EVER lose the pin just replace the shaft. I guarantee ull never loose the pin lol.

I replaced my first front drive shaft on the car since I bought it back in early summer. Not bad huh?

I know its not recommended to most but I just rather have peace of mind knowing that thing is on tight than waiting for the moment it loosens.

As for all that other drama involving the whole B44 issue....who cares lol. Brush that off and lets go racing.

Miket3: nice large track, the Durango must love that place!
