Yup, I bought one and gandered at FrankL's pic and dropped the buggy right on it. Snugged it up and locked it down, golden.

Default body for DNX408

Anyone tried the JC Hi-Flow body? How does it feel compared to the stock TD body?

Thanks Brandon
Using the HUDY box with a 4S lipo. Using the exhaust support hole at the rear to locate the buggy on the box, along with the pegs at the front, car drops on perfect everytime.

Something of your own design, or something TD are making?

Cool



Featuring a new steering plate, it allows the adjustment of the ackermann with the addition of 2 extra mounting holes to give the car more progressive steering, its current configuration being very direct and nonadjustable. Expected to come fitted with bearings when its released in the coming months, the new plate also allows the adjustment of bump steer through the use of spacers.
Source: RedRC

Durango came up with this design at the Euros@Sand.

There will be another hole for the ballend behind the existing one, to make it adjustable.

I believe the upper part of the Servosaver is a Mugen part.

The other attached file shows a fuelguard, as Neumann is using. (pic of the part later, done via Rapid Prototyping)

Best regards

Hi guys. New to Durango and loving this buggy. Only have one problem and I'm sure it's already been brought up. I'm running the protek life battery I'm the receiver and it's the second one I go through. I take it out of the receiver and it's puffed and when I go to charge it I cant because it's too low voltage. What are you guys running or what mods have you made. Sorry I'm lazy and I didn't want to read through 300 pages. Thanks!!

I Had one of those batteries as well, and that one puffed too.
The only mod i did was to buy better som better batteries. Now I'm running LRP life 1600mAh.
Never had an issue with those.

Its hard for me to understand, that almost a full year and still no new tank to replace that piece of crap stock fuel tank...
Center drive line is also crap, alot of wear you have to be rich to run this car...
Other new companies like Serpent at least offered thier clients a free radio tray, and they updated the car at a good pace, Durango is showing little respect for thier clients, thats my opinion.
