Default dnx408

i finished and i really like it. there are a couple issues but in the long run im not concerned. the rear chassis brace needs to be shaved down a couple mm's should you use O.S engines and secondly i hate the servo linkage set up. lastly the set up sheets..... every team set up sheet is incomplete in one way or another but whatever. heres a couple pics obviously money is not an issue.

Yeah whats up with no droop settings in the setups? I'm coming from losi and all there setups have droop listed. Can anyone give me a good starting point for droop? I will be running on supercross style tracks.

How many people have killed steering servos due to fuel spilling on them?? Looks like the only weak point on the Durango to me.......

I believe that is on of the biggest things that could cause lots of servos to go.

It shouldn't be needed, and most the time kills the warranty. A reason good as any, if you ask me.
(On the other hand, i doubt any warranty cover fuel spills.)

I'm using 104f and 116r for droop settings. Try that

Thanks frank. When you adjust the brake bias does your rod pop off of the ball ends? Everytime I try on mine it pops off

If money isnt an issue you might want to get an OS pipe to match your motor. You will get better runtime and performane.

yes mine does too. I havent even messed with it. I got it close when I put it on so I dont know how to adjust it yet. But I would think that if you want more rear I would just unscrew the rear cup a little bit. If you change the total length it will just make the brakes stronger on both sides. Maybe TD can comment on this.

BTW I got my Alum Arms today

Longer link will give you more front bias. I adjust the rear with EPA and then the front with the link.
