+1 on the orion, thats what I use and love them and I have previously had the HW V2.1, I thought that for the money that is the best esc out there price wise.
So the V3/V3.1 you couldn't go wrong with.

Anyways, I just bought a new V3 with a ton of parts and also the Borrego wheels, M3 Protons and Ions with AKA inserts from Amain... should all be here soon and I'm glad I finally get to ask stupid questions in a Durango thread haha

Ok heres my question... what esc/motor R10 Pro - VST 8.5T or get a cheap Hobbywing? Or wait for the RSX?
Thanks. You really can't go wrong with the R10 Pro. I am using that now in all my cars but I have also used in the 4wd the LRP Flow which was also very nice. I did also use the Tekin RS Pro and hated that one.

If the wheels are similar you're good to go, if not it may take some calculating. It's not an easy task, that's why most just run the stock wheels. Sorry if its not the answer you were hoping for, but it's all I got..
Thanks. I will give that a go tonight.

Okay, so I took the 4700 out and out an SMC 6.5t in... power is great, no issues there.

But where I am struggling is with brakes. Is braking more of a function of the motor or the ESC? I understand that a 4 pole will have more stopping power than a 2 pole, but is it possible that an ESC designed for 4 pole might not apply as much braking force as an ESC designed for a smaller motor? I shoe horned my SCT-Pro in there because it was the best ESC I already owned. Thinking it might just be less ideal for the the smaller motors.

Thing is, on dirt or clay, its fine, but I race this thing on turf. And I am just about running into every wall on the track.

Re calibrated, braking force at 100, reverse at 50... The thing just won't stop like I want it too.

Is it time for a 1/10th ESC?

My initial brake force is set to drag brake which is set to 0. Could that be it? Almost seems like there is a delay, when I go full brake, it will slow then the really try to stop...

My understanding of initial brake is that it's only for the partial braking, and if I'm pinned, it should be full brake force the whole time... hmmm... Will try it at lunch and see what happens.

I saw some of those parts on the durango site and they showed in stock, now tower shows late december Doesn't look like much is new and Dino has pointed out, under $50 plus the new drive shafts and arms, still far from the $200 difference there will be between the v3 and v4, so hopefully no one was waiting the new kit out

Damn. I finally got my car and the space is tight. I can't figure out where I am going to put everything. R10 (cap and switch) plus M11X rec plus transponder = no bueno.

I hope Durango will make an upgrade kit from V3 to V4 like Yokomo does to their buggies

I was waiting for the new one to see if they were going for a dual battery configuration (saddles or shorty). I have the alum. so I may just cut my own like the worlds, don't know if I can wait to see the v4 in Dec.

+ I'll be broke since there really isn't a Santa

Why in the world would you want to replicate the "Worlds" chassis when it bombed?

Lutz didn't seem to have much trouble with the V3 he was running? The car in its current configuration has done well for the past 3+ years

+1 with that. Jorn just killed it at EOS with his v3 with small bores.

I have been on petitrc and looking at some set ups. Seems like a big variation on the shock set up.

Would anyone have a good starting shock set up for medium to high bite indoor clay (OCRC)? Even when I look at all the different set ups for WCRC (similar to OCRC) every set up is different. I am just confused on a starting point. Thanks.
