XZ speed and 2060 fit nicely. You do need to grind the rear brace a little but it works well.

anyone notice with the durango tight fitting body,although a pain getting on and off,under stays pretty clean after 4 hours on dry,loose/packed track.
had a blast running today,had to keep adjusting linkage to throttle,no big deal,adjust to keep carb closed off throttle.changed to 14 caster,-4 camber all around,40 wt all around,blue springs all around still,2.2 front sway,2.8 rear,go engine 3 port combo,7.0 venturi,and a set of duratrax x-cons tires c2.man for a dry track , i love these tires. wet,calibers.dry,x-cons. the buggie just took all i could give.what a blast.

Don't know how Ryan finished, but he started 9th, Had to leave around 2 pm today. At that time the track was in very bad shape chewed and rutted up badly, if was turning buggys over around some of the truns....it was anybodys race....but hope he did well.

Lutz finished 13th and Reno finshed 8th. Hope this car has better showings and can stay together. Car looks really cool but doesnt seem to be up to the top level yet.

The car is fast but it does have a couple of bugs that needs to be worked out. With that said, I don't expect the team drivers to be on pace with the rest of the pro's til at least this summer. Don't forget most top guys been with their team for years.
