Just start with 10,10,5!

so that means that i just put 2,000 instead of 20,000 in the front and center diffs? i just need to know one way or the other, so i can get the right fluid in there so the car works. no company bs please just the truth!

is not that difficult, 7000(70000) front, 7000(70000) center, 2000(20000) rear.
Anyway the differential oil strongly depends on the track where you run.

Just wanted to give a big, big thanks to Team Durango and Mr. Lutz. A couple pages ago I posted a pic of a defective part that I had in my kit. Both Mr. Lutz and TD offered to send me a replacement part. I actually requested from TD a next day air shipment of the part and they agreed with no quams or problems at all. They next day aired the part and it was in my hands by 10:00 am today eastern time.

That is some great customer service and I really appreciate it. Communication was awesome and I was very impressed they shipped it out that fast. Thanks again guys, can't wait to continue the build.

600cts what Ryan used in his most recent setup for the shock oils. My local hobby shop i guess only has the unit of measurement in wt. So what does 600cts convert to in wt.?? thanks

edit: doing a google search and looking at a few conversion charts, what i seem to have found is that 550-600cts would be almost equal to 45wt. So 45wt. is what i need. Hupo also has 45wt. down for shock oil in one of the set-ups at the back of the instruction manual.

For the PT R/C Racing Oils that I am using here is the conversion to Losi Wt.
350=27.5
375=30
400=32.5
450-35
475=37.5
500=40
525=42.5
550=45
600=50
650=52.5
700=55
750=60
800=65

If the weather holds off and Slough is on on Sunday and the track is ok....I may even let you have a go at the end of the day!

There are three reasons I decided to purchase a Durango 408 and two of them were mentioned in your post.

First... Ryan Lutz - the nicest and most helpful pro driver there is. I met him at the R/C Pro finals in Alvarado, TX which was, to my knowledge, the first big race he attended after getting his 408. He let me fiddle with the car and answered all of my questions about it. He really sold me on the platform.

Second... Durango's customer service. I've seen it in action before with friends who own and race the 410.

The third reason is German engineering! Heh, I share the Deutschlanders love all things mechanical and there is a brilliant elegance to the 408's design. I especially love that the gearboxes aren't load-bearing. I also love the rubber CVD boots at the axles. It's the small things that really stick with me.

My kit is scheduled to arrive on Thursday and I can't wait. I've always been a Losi driver so this is a big change for me. I'm a little worried about parts support but as long as A-main faithfully carries the line I'll be happy.
