could you have a shock that you filled from a small hole near the top of the actual cap (right under the hole/eyelet) and then had a plug that went in sideways (no pressure build up) and was captured into place by say an o-ring?

Well, I ended up ordering the full Tekno kit with Losi lightened outdrives for the center diff, DE Racing mud guards and GMK hardened diff shims. Still not entirely sure what the diff shims are going to do but I guess I'll find out

I've owned both... First the losi... Than the durango (I literally just sold it)... While the Durango isn't a bad truck... Pros bieng: it's easier to work on... It's lighter... So it's easier on the electronics... Negatives bieng... You have to drive on eggshells... If you just look at an A-arm wrong it will break off<--- this is it's greatest downfall... Parts support is lacking... Not a fan of saddles... And to be honest... Being that light is a bad thing... It dosent like big outdoor jumps... And a losi can push it around... I've owned both for the same amount of time... And to me... The losi wins hands down... If you like fixing a truck that breaks alot... Buy the DuBreako... If you like to drive fast and furious... Buy the losi!!!

If it's not too late, you might want to try that MIP instead of the BUMP+TLR kit. Just saying...

I am going to disagree with you on the durango. I own both and have for awhile. Both trucks handle very different. I love the way the Durango handles on a smaller technical track. I think that is were it shines. It is very nimble, jumps awesome, and corners lke it's on rails. The Durango will greatly reward a good driver with faster lap times. As for being fragile I have beat the crap out of mine and am impressed on how well it has held up. The weak point on the truck is the arms and hinge pins and they will break if you take a few hard hits but they have supposedly addressed this in the new v2 kit.

As for the Losi it is a great truck as well and handles more like a 1/8th scale buggy. It is heavier than the Dingo and on a 1/8th scale sytle track with big air I prefer to drive the SCTE because it is more durable then the Dingo. The losi is a great truck right out of the box with no mods but on my Durango I am running Kyosho big bores and the shorty conversion. I hope this helps.

These are 2 very different trucks and I highly recommed driving one before you buy one.

Joe is right on the money. I also own both and I like them both.

It's hard to be impressed with something you've never used. I have the Bump chassis and TLR kit and lots of other hop ups on one of my SCTE's. I'm getting ready to build my other SCTE with the MIP kit. From what I've read so far I'm looking forward to seeing how it handles.

Mine should be here tomorrow. What batteries do you guys recommend for racing(5000mah or more). I run 5 min qualifiers amd 8 to 10 min mains? Do you need a high c rating battery for these mod motors? I will be running a Tekin sc4x4.5 550 motor with Hobbywing esc. what motors do you guys prefer the 550 or 4 pole?

I recommend 6600mah 65c-135c Nano techs or 6800mah 70c ProMatch packs.
