Hey guys, I am about to start on the shocks for my DNX. Everything else is done finally! haha. One more question on shock oil though. I see most setups using CST weights. I have never had good luck converting CST to Losi so I am looking for some insight on what weights/pistons to run when using Losi oil. Like I said, medium traction slightly rough track that I will normally be running on. Thanks for all the help so far!

I use losi oils. For 600cst i use 42.5wt and go from there.

Frank,

How did testing go today?

Testing was pretty good today I tightened the car up quite a bit, shortened wheel base lightened the diff oils and changed the shocks around went to 1.4 piston in the rear and thicker oils. I messed with the springs until I got it to push and then I backed it off. I think it went in a positive direction. Ill see how it handles in a race, but it feels better to me.

BTW Nice finish LUTZINATOR

SPEEDSKI,

I understand where u are coming from but sponsor or no sponsor, I have let many DNX 408 drivers in my area try this clutch system on their own cars. It just works. The Ascendancy Effortless Racing clutch speaks for itself. If u have a 408 just try it. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you all! It was a great race and my Durango was AMAZING!!

Set-up is posted on my website. Looks alot like all my set-ups lately. I've pretty much got a good base now. Just tweaking for weather and track it seems.
