Default Process for tuning your suspension

Here's a question for Ryan, Reno, and the more experienced racers:

What's the process you go through when tuning your suspension? When you take the car out onto the track with your base set-up, what is it you look for (how the car jiggles around? does it bottom-out when landing?)?

Then which do you change first? Springs? Ride height? damper oil? droop? camber?

Would greatly appreciate your advice.

Ryan that awesome!! Durango couldnt have picked a better driver your support is somethig to admire 2. The durango thread has so much good information.

I noticed other thread really push their brand or products period but when something else works better they frown on its suggestion. Example shock springs, clutch, couplers etc. The review from this months RC mag was very good they couoldnt have picked a better setup for the rig for sure.

+1 I have been in and out of this hobby for 20+ yrs and this buggy and the support for it is something else !! I have three other Xray's that I am selling because I just got an 408 and am completely in love with it ( for a lack of a better word) !! I can't wait to get it on the track !!

Are you wanting to do a Single 4S setup or a Dual pack set-up ? If your dead set on the Dual pack, You might be better off waiting for the real DEX vs trying to part one together. If your going the Single pack route, then you could pick up another kit and convert it if your in a rush.

Where in Canada Are you located ? everyone except maybe Toronto's got Snow still on the ground with another month or so before thing's start to thaw.

Default Dynamite Starter box

I am having a hell of a time with the Dynamite Ready Start DM. I tried getting it all lined up with the engine out, went out and tried starting it, the damn switch fried on the box. Went out today, rewired the whole box, puts deans on the lipo, got a 40 amp switch and got the engine to fire, died a few times and the wheel ground down too far on the box, tried starting a few more times, then the lipo crapped out on me.

So, the box is garbage, the lipo is wrecked, and the engine ran for 15 sec. I didn't want to grind the chassis, so now I need a box that works. Yes, it is a brand new engine. I have the comp heater and I had a heat gun, temps were over 200 when I was trying to fire it.

Should I just get the Ofna truggy box? Is that the best option? Or maybe I just screw it and get a electric conversion.

Best option is to do both. The ofna truggy box works perfectly and the e conversion dnx408 is a dream to drive.

Depends on the engine like usual. I have had success with running .9,.9,1.0 (the .9 springs are Mugen springs) With the stock shoes, flywheel and cb.

I have 3 successful race days on my dnx and 1 on the e conversion. great car.
