If you are outdoors I would see using it with the 2 hole setup. For now, I recommend folks try it as described with the 4 hole pistons.

I`ve been running mostly outdoors and the only thing i did was change the rear schocks to 35 weigth associated oil (thats what i had ) the rear was bottoming out big time on the woops and the big table top , now seems good but still need to do more dialing in , love the truck also guys do yourself a favor change the rear hubs to alluminun they look great and will handle anything you can throw at it , i snap my stock left hub on my fourth run I will never run the stock rear hubs again way to weak , you would think losi would had throw that in the kit , oh well

Which are the front camber links? The polished links in bag B or the more dull links? They appear to be the same length but just want to check.

#Tdr310214 is what I used for the gold turnbuckles they are off a dex408 buggy. I had to drill out the rod ends to get the larger 5mm turn buckles started I don't remember what size drill bit I used.

The titanium turnbuckle set from the 8ight 2.0 fits perfect.

I buy losi products most of the time But the Durango turnbuckles are 1/2 the cost of the losi titanium.kinda hard to pay twice as much to achieve the same thing.

Yeah, but the Durango ones are aluminum, aren't they?

They may be pretty but will they hold up as well?

Hey Guy's! Just ordered my 2.0 kit from Ampdraw Hobbies. Can't wait to start the build. My first time doing a kit. Everything else was either a RTR or roller. I've got the new Tekin Gen2 RX8 on order from Tower. And a 4600kv Tekin Pro4. Also ordered a Savox 300+ 0z in servo from Amain.

Yes they are 5mm aluminum I have yet to break or bend one and I run my truck pretty hard. This is a great hop-up for people looking to cut some weight from the truck with out spending a ton of $$$ on Ti parts. The stock steel turnbuckles are plenty strong I was just looking to save a few #'s.

I don't have another set of #3 pistons for the rear. I did buy the 22 piston set though. Are any of those pistons the same? The 54's look close if not the same as #3's?

Ran my 2.0 (converted from 1.0 w/Bump chassis) for the first time today. I was rather disappointed. It did jump/fly better, but the steering sucked! I'm running the Dunford standard setup on high grip clay.

Do I have a problem somewhere? Has anyone elese had this issue with the standard setup.

Define how it sucked. Corner entry? Corner exit? Not enough high speed? I've struggled with mine to get the steering I want. A bit of toe out, the short Ackerman arm, minimal kickup, and the right diff oil all around (higher in the middle/front, lower in the rear) finally got me the exit steering I wanted. Now I'm moving outside onto lower bite tracks so things will change more.
