There is another thread on rctech about the 408 prototype, there you can find a couple of setup, or just look here:

Hi.
We did a conversion table for the Durango range of shock oils it can be found in the in the pits section of the Team Durango website.
(See the Image below)

The Spring rates table can also be found on each spring page and a full Spring Chart will be available once the kit page has gone live.

Diff Oils will be released with the ratings in cst on the bottle as well as the non-linear wt ratings. Again a chart will be released once the product pages are live for the oils.

Hope this helps..

Hi

Have the gear ratio already been mentionned ?
i saw that there is a 13 T bell et and 48 T spur. But what about the overall ratio (including the diff gear) ?
i guess for large tracks in Europe a 14 T bell and/or 46 T spur might be the way to go.

And a couple more questions:
- how many screws to remove in order to get the whole radio try of the chassis ? Is it more complex than, let's say a mbx6 :-)
- what it the best procedure to remove the engine, for the throttle linkage ?

Just got my kit today and I started to build it! One question I have is should the retainers spin fairly easily or is this something that will wear in in time? Thanks in advance! The parts quality of this thing is amazing!!
