No brake fade here, I need to back off mine a little.
If you put the 2mm beveled washers on brake posts with about 1mm spacing to pad, and your linkage adjusted right, it'll stop on a dime.

Ya I have had other issues but never with brakes on this car. Just make sure you set your end point correctly, the action on the brake mechanism is very short and the F/R adjustment is very sensitive.

Good customer service is hard to find nowadays so I am sure I will be ordering from them again in the future.

On a side note is anyone experencing brake fade and if so has anyone tried different pads and disc to correct it? If so, which ones are you using?

Any idea where I can get a wing mount in the US? Something so simple/cheap is been out of stock for probably 2 months. I cant even explain to you guys how irritated I am with this issue. Can someone from Durango please chime in with possible delivery date?

For guys with different brands still around could you please see if any other brand fits. I dont care how many holes i have to drill in the shock tower as long as I can make it work. Durango wing mount is very weak and I wouldn't mind switching to something stronger anyways.
Thanks for the help

Really sorry about this - we've actually revised this part slightly and it should be available very soon.

the mid CVD is not very "serious about racing" in this car, infact, I have to change the mid CVD (rear) in each race because the car is blocked on rear axle.............. I have worn 2 cvd in the last race (track with more grip)

I want to know what Team durango doing, because this is a serious problem
I do not understand why no one complains wear of CVD mid (rear) on this forum, you're losing many customers for these problems, and think instead support wing .......... wrong policy, your customers can not wait for December to get these parts, absurd industrial policy!

What should I do? Actually, I have to spend 20 euros for each race for mid CVD, it seems right?
you lose any more time and dnx408 will be labeled with "fragile car", this is world of race !

in 7 months to release 2 shock diaphram ... very good job, lol!
you already have all the pictures of my broken parts submitted by Italian Distributor, is an encyclopedia ahahhaha

guys stop defend the Durango work, it's time to reclaim

sorry But I'm angry with Durango, with me the few italian customers remaining !

The Losi wing mount fits but holds the wing about 3/8" higher

I find it hard to believe that you go through parts like that. If so maybe a different car is what you need? This is supposed to be a fun hobby.........
