Great. Those where really the only two things feel you need out of the box.

Similar to my setup, but what are you doing to keep the chassis from flexing. I put a screw threw the waterfall brace and the end of the battery brace. By the way, what battery brace is that?

What tires you got for 2wd mod buggy.
I have Hot bodies tires that work on indoor tracks.
I also have Jconcepts Dirt Webs that work well at most indoor tracks.
And then I have my outdoor set and I like to run ribbed tires on the front
and pin tires kinda like Bow ties on the rear.
For indoor front tires I have Suburbs, and Proline Scrubs.

I run Gold Dirt Webs usually on DE wheels on our indoor dirt track, and I use Trinity Black Dot for sauce.

Traction at our track has come way up. Most are running pro line primes front and rear. If traction drops we go to dirt webs.

tire choice will be really track dependent. I would suggest calling the track in question and find out what works unless you want to have a tire warchest.

Out here step pins can be king, so I hunted down some. may even make some 4wd fronts by cutting some steppins.

Any opinions on the Mckune slipper pads for general usage?

Cain,
I have the McKune slipper pads. They work great. Easier to get in and out then the RCshox one. Same material. I had issues with the RCshox ones not fitting in stock spur gears. Only in the machines ones. The McKune fit both. I also had to ream out the center hole on the RCsHox.

I know its a bit of money, but I put on the Avid Slipper setup on my car and I can't say enough good things about it. It made the car smoother on and off power and less of a wheelie monster. I've heard good things about the McKune stuff though, I hear they hold up against the high power stuff and don't wear out as quickly.

Why do they make slipper holders with holes in them.
One of my cars have it I just don't know why holes in it would make a difference.

if you mean the slipper discs, I think it cut down on weight and also aids in cooling.

If the mclune are the same material like the rcshox then thats great. I loved the feel and no fade of the rcshox ones on carpet especially. And it should be a lighter overall assembly than the avid for stock racing.

The battery brace is from a Kyosho SC6 Short Course truck. I just cut it down a little. It works great for my purposes.

I have the aluminum chassis so I thought I would try the buggy without the extra brace.

At our indoor dirt track, medium grip, we get the best results from Electron tires and I use the red Sticky Kicks sauce.

Today must be my lucky day. I got to talk to Jared Tebo on facebook.
He's racing dirt bikes kinda like what Cavallari does.
I told him on facebook, you are like Ryan Cavalari and race dirt bikes and rc cars.
He said this to me "Not quite, I can actually ride a dirt bike ������������"

I'm sitting back shocked that a world champion driver talked to me on the internet.

Does the version 3 Durango buggy have hex front wheels.
If so I'll have to take the pin and bearing front axels off my old Dex 210 and put them on it.
I guess in the future I'll buy hex front wheels if that's the case.
