Ive moved the rear brace all the way down it sit on the screw which holes down the lid. But the pegs don't extend far enough. I have it setup been running it with on peg which hit the rear side guard but the buggy isn't secure. My pit guy has a hard time.

Did you mod the box or are U uisng different pegs.
I am using the ofna blue box with the stock pegs. Nothing fancy or modded>> The one on the Left

I have had lots of conversation with people in my area who no longer own their Durango and have started to find some commonality in their driving techniques.

Curious to hear about yours.
Well, i like to have TONS of steering, brake late and accelerate really quick but smoothly. The more nimble and light the car is, the better. That's the only thing i miss from my old 808, lightness, although the DNX feels a bit easier to drive.

My first time with the DNX. Not too bad I don't think, the two whoop sections are really tough to find a rymthm through. Those were with Revolver V3's, need to find a legal race tire though... Suggestions?

Going back soon and was wondering what everyone thought as far as the car's setup. Car look too tight or loose to anyone?

If the diffs are leaking you probably don't have them assembled correctly. The stock o-rings and seals work just fine.

Actually, the stockers are fine. I've noticed than on a lot of brands, the gaskets take time to settle into place. You put the diffs together, they leak a bit, so you take them back out, tighten down the screws a bit more, and the problem is solved. This always worked for me.
