Don't know too much about Orion ESCs, is it possible to mount your capacitors on the servo to make space, like this?

Not most capacitor banks.. not enough room btw the center shaft and your steering arm. Put the caps directly under the center drive shaft,, nothing else will fit there anyway.

Mine sits half and half, I just use an added 1/2 piece of servo tape where the the lip is. So, there is 1 layer on the plastic, but 2 layers where it sits on the aluminum..

Some pics of the new body (thanks to Tim Garland). Finally got to run it and keep her together (was having major issues with the link from the servo to the steering rack).

I just picked one of these up. Coming from a B44. The track I go to does not carry any Durango parts, can someone list a few part numbers that I should pick up before heading out? Thanks and looking forward to trying a different wheeler.

Best wing I've used is the one I'm running currently which is the Vortex but the Sweep wing also looks like a stellar performer though I don't know if it's as robust as the Vortex. This thing is so sturdy.

Quick Reference to both: http://www.neobuggy.net/category/products/wings/



Not a fan of the JC wings as they feel a bit flimsy but the Proline has proven durable.

I've heard so much raggin' at my local tracks about Durango's durability but all I've broken is a right front arm after cutting it too close to a PVC pipe and I clipped the edge on a seam and a snap she went. Hit it pretty hard and all I broke was the arm and warped the outer hinge pin slightly.

I'd suggest you buy a set of arms, Hardened Pins (don't have part numbers handy) and upgrade to the 21 blocks to remove the aggressiveness steering into corners. That really settles it down and makes the car a dream to drive. If you don't have the Blocks you will find you may have to snap steer it using a bit of throttle input. Not a huge deal if you can get used to it quickly as I was able to, but the 21 blocks is one of those upgrades that improves a vehicle enough that instantly improves lap times considerably. Also the rear weight kit allows the car to grab surfaces better so that's one to look towards.

This is the best, most complete selection of DEX410 parts I've come across. Pages 9 & 10 have most of what you want in the way of upgrades.

this is the track i work on...no real long high speed straights...no giant jumps...so the performance of the wing isn't too big of a deal. just mainly need something durable. here's some video of the new layout.

+ YouTube Video
