I won't know how the shock mod or springs work until
Sat night. Just got it all done and haven't ran it this way yet. I will update though.

Default Rear Shock Mod

Has anyone else done the rear shock mod and care to share their experience with it? I was thinking about doing it.

I did the rear shock mod and felt no differance, So i put it back to stock.


Can someone tell me the weight savings in Ti turnbuckles and is it worth the $52.00 spent?

I'm so happy with my setup right now I'm not even thinking of trying the shock mod!
Tq'd last night but I wasn't as good as my buggy in the main and took 3rd.
Man it was hooked like no other!
Dry,hard packed clay,technical track.I ran grey springs all around with 35 Losi shock oil all around on shotgun tires,good tires for the price!
5,5,5, in diffs. I drilled vent holes in my front stock brake disc which held up great.I just can't say enough right now how great it was to pass everyone on the inside pipe while they were sliding wide! Man what a blast! Pulled wheelies in the straights at times, gotta work on that.
Gotta go unpack and take notes before my OCD ritual teardown!
Team Durango rocks!

KO,

You rocked it! Your passing skills got a good workout and you were on it. I'm glad that your idiotic pitman yelling up at you didn't screw you up! Too bad that we are racing against each other most nights.

I am having problems installing the D8 tank, the fuel tank coupler comes out on the front of the tank hiting the steering. What did you do about that? Thxs

Hey FM, the way around that is to actually unscrew that coupler and feed the fuel line through like the losi tanks. you can kinda see it in his first picture.

haven't seen anyone with this body on yet so thought I would share.
Amain was out of losi bulldogs so I went with the Jconcepts punisher, easy to fit though a little wide so I used some velco to keep the sides in.

That looks good! Punisher is probably my favorite body!
