I run M3 calibers since that's our control tire. I'm running the car without any swaybars but I think I'll try a 1.3mm or 1.5mm swaybar in the rear with light green springs.

I would throw on the 1* rear hubs for off the corner grip. Look at the front diff oil weight, drag brake, ditch the front swaybar if your running one, and look at front spring/ camber. If your running anything over 7k front get rid of it lol. If your struggling on entry keep in mind the motor drag from brushless is small and varies for each motor. Try adding some drag brake if the rest of your setup makes sense. Rake (front - rear rideheight) has a subtle influence too. So if your running the stock dark blues I might try black fronts with light green rear. But post up and we will go from there, OR it could be just trying to drive the car to deep in the corner and braking to hard to late... I had to adjust that coming from touring cars.. oh, and if the track is low grip I would definatly use the plastic rear chassis brace rather than the carbon brace.
I'm one of the fastest guys at our track. Most guys drive a slash or a Cougar/B4/B44. There's only 1 other guy with a Durango but that car is even doing worse.

I know I have a few options left to get car a little more planted on power. But my car is also lacking off power steering. I need more offpower steer and less on power steer.

Here's my curreny setup: http://cl.ly/9ldV

Only differences are that I run the plastic rear brace and big bore shocks, but otherwise it's the same setup and it is fantastic on our track. Great turn-in on corner entry but the back end stays put on the way out (unless I do something silly like pin it ).

Cheers,
Mike
Thanks! I'll have a look at it.

Yes there's a spring kit. They're just not shared between the two cars.

Thanks! I'll have a look at it.
Run the longest rear camber link, rear shock bottom all the way out. lt. green rear springs,1 deg hubs,-2/4 rear roll center, rear hubs forward, and raise ride ht. 1-2 mm and maybe loosen the slipper a bit. As for the front dark green or black springs, and run the shorter camber link same position. Good Luck...

Thanks! I'll try that.

I've been to a flowing high speed astro turf track today, which was bumpy. The damping was too hard for the track. I changed the shock oils and spring and it was eating the bumps

I was curious if anyone had any feedback comparing the DEX410 to the Shumacher Cat SxII/III?

I ask b/c I recently sold my cat SxII, and was looking to either get the new SxIII, but also am very interested in the Durango. So I am basically looking for peoples experience that have owned/or driven both cars, and some comparisons pro/cons of each. Reliability, handling, difficulty in setups, etc.

I do know some thought the Cat had reliability issues, and that it was delicate. It walso took alot fo tweeking to get it suited for "US style Tracks". HOwever, some have told me that the Durango has leaky differentials..

I race on hard Clay tracks so if that helps, etc. I am basically just looking for pro's and con's of each car.

thanks.

No more leaky diffs: http://www.team-durango.com/blog/201...diff-seal-mod/

I find the durango to be very reliable, responds well to setup changes and easy to drive

Hi i am thinking of getting a durango! I been looking through this thread but am little over whelmed. Its hard to find a dex410 so i was looking at the R. Amain has the r for$ 269.00 not bad. I don't want to waste money if i will be upgading to 410 parts.
1: should i wait for 410?
2: What 410 upgrades would i want?
3: what extras pinion,spur gear size, springs or other parts?
I want to have everything so i can assemble once and have the right tuning parts avalibale. Anything else anyone has for me please let me know. Thinking tekin rs pro w/7.5
thanks

Hi !
Im very satisfied with the Intellect 5400mah 60C, and it was used by some drivers in the Worlds in Finland also, so I guess its ok.

There are a lot available but I like the proline dirt hawg for their "almost good everywhere" aspect.
