The original non weighted works better. With weighted you need to shim the flywheel more forward and/or dremel the chassis opening a bit.

So what Brand Diff and Shock Oils is everyone using? I was going to try some Xray fluids or just run LOSI.

Anyone?

WHEN WILL DURANGO COME OUT WITH THEIR OWN FLUIDS?

Sorry for the caps, but I already asked

I went by the local hobby shop and checked out the Durango. Man this thing is nice. I drive Mugen's right now but was wondering how this car drives compared to the mbx6-mspec and losi. Has anyone be able to drive their buggy yet? If so, how do you like it and what are some of the characteristics of the handling? How does the rear end feel when you drive it hard into and out of the corners? How is the initial turn in on it, traction i meen?

steering turn in and out probably more then you would ever want (for me)
to much

rear traction is a little loose at the moment, but i would think all the steering has a lot to do with it

acceleration jumping breaks all very good

i see ryan runs a harder ft spring and lighter rear spring then stock .
i would think this will help a lot

Thank you for your interest in PT RC Racing shock and diff oils, one of the most accurate and consistent silicone oils in RC, race proven and trusted by many pro drivers.
*
Shock oil comes in a 4oz. bottle and is available in the following viscosity
100*150*200*225*250*275*300*325*350*375*400*425*45 0*475*500*525*550*600*
650*700*750*800. *There are many in in-between numbers that allow you to fine tune your suspension.
4oz shock oil retails for 7.99$
*
Diff oil comes in a 2oz. bottle and is available in the following viscosity
1k*2k*2.5k*3k*3.5k*4k*5k*6k*7k*8k*9k*10k*12k*15k*2 0k*25k*30.
Again many in between numbers available for fine tuning.
2oz diff oils retails for 5.99$
PT RC Racing uses industry standard Centistokes for accurate measurement of viscosity and developed *this chart to use as a cross reference to the standard weight system.**
*
These are the same brand of fluids that Ryan and ather top drivers use it is by far the best I have found

My kit came with Team Durango fluids. 70,000CTS and 20,000CST diff fluids and 600CTS shock fluid. I'm sure they'll have more available soon.

I will as soon as i get mine, but there's more people working on it already.

At least mine will be a little bit different DEX408 layout like my current 808-e
