I would find Lutz's setup from the worlds and start there. His car looked pretty dialed

Small bores and back to the current chassis from what I can tell.

I ran Small bores for a while and the car took a bit of a pounding. the BB really calmed it down and made it smoother overall. With the small bores it felt jittery in certain areas.

^^What surface where you running on? I have a set of small bores but would only run them on carpet or high bite clay with small jumps.

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
To be different and try something new. I am working on something right now. Taking a little longer than I expected though....... Dude Lutz is a sick driver, he loves his cars on edge. I and many others may like a little more planted feel. Don't get me wrong I love this car, but I am looking to make it even better.....

I would some this up to the level of grip at the EOS tracks.

^^Give it a shot and let us know how it works. I'm too lazy to try stuff

Hell I've had my same setup for 3 years! lol

The durango website stock levels are representing overseas distributors. They are not U.S. levels and tower's website is probably accurate until they come via a cargo ship. I recall they switched to mode of transportation some time ago.

I'm mrunning on a large 1/10 outdoor red Florida "clay" track. A bit clay mixed with abrasive sand. We have considerable jumps in a few spots and plenty of elevation changes.

Small bores were decent for that environment but the BB really settled the car down nicely. SB are going on my 25 year old Andy's kit for our new dirt oval! Lol

Is there some secret to threading the spring adjustment nut on to the shock bodies?

Does anybody make a better shock than the junk that comes with an otherwise perfect kit?

Let me guess, Kyosho shocks.

Or maybe its just you..
The Durango SB and BB shocks with Tamiya blye x-rings are the smoothest dampers I have ever tried. Had to go up 5-7.5wt after the rebuild because of the Tamiya rings

Ridge,

Can you offer a link to which Tamiya xrings? I have seen 50 and 70 durometer ones. I also read something about having to use mineral based shock oil(?) I use Losi. Do you know if it will work OK with the Tamiya rings?

Thanks.

Mark

Hi Mark,

Item number 42214, 50-durometer are the ones you want. The 70-durometer is for mineral oil only. I use Losi oil also and no problems after 2 months.

I had a PITA time getting mine on, I ended up running a razor knife over the threads on the nut, nothing else helped. I tried black grease, diff lube and nothing helped. The threads are awful. I want to get some alumionum collars soon as I jacked the plastic collars up pretty bad. IMHO the shocks otherwise are pretty smooth... I mean not as nice as Kyosho velvets but those are amazing shocks! TLR and AE big bores are pretty good also!
