They're not that silly.. SCT is still huge and the Blitz IS in need of a refresh.

how right you are, the stock arms are the only weak thing i've found on the truck so far. i fixed it by replacing them with rpm like mentioned and managed to win the main on my second night out with the desc410v2 beating a tekno and a couple losi trucks on their own territory, huge 1/8th scale track. i'm thinking when we move indoors to the tighter track i'll have the advantage.
i look at the durango as the only 1/10th scale 4wd short course truck on the market. all the other ones i've seen look more like an 1/8th scale 4wd short course. the only other one i can think of that started out 1/10th is the jammin truck i used to drive.

You owned the track last night for sure. Night and day from last week. The changes were dialed. I would like to se ya do the mod to the rear shocks and swap them to the rear of the tower. I bet it would be better. The truck was jumping better and steer at high speeds better with the added front droop. Looking great......
