That is a much harder question because you have a whole system in play. Depends on piston and springs. I cannot offer any good advice on this front as I like to run stiffer than most my racing buddies. I like a stiffer suspension as I can drive the car harder once I figure out the car & track. Check the TD website for some ideas . ..

Are the v3 cars pretty tough? I'm looking at buying a v3 and was curious if it was fragile or not.

They are pretty tough. Not as durable as your 22B but not as fragile as a B4. They still break but not often.

MattP,

I have ran this car for 3 seasons now and have been impressed. The car is solid and have not found a problematic weak spot. There are a few concerns, which I understand the V3 has addressed, and entails; most importantly, the aluminum hinge pin braces. I certainly recommend an aluminum servo saver and servo horn. Some have problems with the plastic rear diff hoop so that might be worth your while to invest in aluminum. Cheers!

Ok thanks guys. My last 1/10th 4wd buggy was a b44.1 and I saw a few durangos on the track and they looked fast. Plus I have recently bought a bunch of 1/8 durangos so I'm thinking of picking up their sct and their 4wd buggy.

Make sure to get the v3, for the 99 over the r version it is money well spent.

It looks like dark blue fronts and light green rears and the front seems really soft? handles great, very nimble but the front of the chassis seems to drag alot. Any suggestions? The bottoms are in on the arm so I'll move them out and maybe tops out one hole too. I guess heavier oil. IDK, do they all run real low and soft like that? I may not even touch it.

I have never liked dark blue springs up front , I found myself always going to black .

Maybe you just need to thicken up the oils... I run 1.2 x 6hole 45wt and it feels great with those springs.

Tell me about it lol. I used to have a v1 and it was a major PITA to fit everything in there using a low profile servo and a micro spektrum receiver!
