People have squeezed Speed Passion gear in there so the LRP shouldn't be an issue. I think I might pull the trigger on one today, but I need to sell off some other stuff first.

Anybody interested in a nitrous kit, 17x9 work emotions, camera lenses or an RT5?

I have seen a comment that the car is front heavy and needed the brass weight set to compensate, but the rear weight causes a pendulum effect on the rear. Anyone heard of this?

I read that as well..........all I know is a Xray sponsored driver was running one last year at SmacTrac and it was flat out dialed every weekend........he went from low/midpack in the proA with a Kyo FS to fighting for the lead in the proA with his Durango........I'll be using his setup for sure

Im bouncing between this and the B44. i run a B4 now and the thought of having common parts and tools is nice, but the appearent quality of the Durango is top notch. i just hope they come out with the 210 and the 410SCR soon to round out the package.

A couple guy's at my track are running Durangos and they are hooked up . I will say this though don't bump them if your running something else because your car will go for a ride . Those cars don't move .

I've got one of these in route and will probably be building it this weekend. I see most of the setups are like 20k front diff and 10k rear. This doesn't seem right for my local track here in the U.S. I will be running on a tight indoor track with moderate traction (not blue grooved). Also, the track is a little bumpy for 1/10 scales. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I don't know if that helps.

My local track is hard-packed and has decent traction, especially when wet. Bman ran 10k up front in his Durango and was a few tenths off the track record his first day out.


edit: The more I think about it, the more I want it... decisions, decisions.

the dex410 likes to be on power thru the corners, since the weight is in the front it allows the rear to stay planted as the front pulls the car thru the corner however this does mean higher front tire wear but faster corners=faster laps. you have to alter your driving style a little but once you realize you can stay on power your and be more aggressive your lap times will drop like crazy.

there is a ton on info in the Austrailian thread, unlike us in the usa they post pretty frequently and since theyve had their distributor for almost a year they've got alot more ppl running the car for a longer time.

That is a great looking body! I like how it adds some width to the body, which i like.

The price of $62.00 is not cool!

Try the Gainabull body from Tresery.
It has a large cab area up front, so you can fit big fans and heatsinks in there.
Lots of Aussies are using them.
