This is me driving the JQ but I will try the Durango next time
No one has a suggestion of setup for this track? I'm racing my converted DNX408 this week-end so it would be nice from you

Default DNX408 Gearcase V2?

I understand there is an updated gearcase for the DNX, is this another part that TD has updated but kept the same part #? Anyone know which shop is most likely to have it?

On Ryan's website he talks about using most of last years setup, so I'd look for that as a good starting point.

Is anyone using the JC Illusion wing on their DNX? If so what wing angle do you have it at? One week before the season begins so I have a lot of work to get done. Kyosho springs are on, V2 gastank and reciever box are going in this weekend. Now just to get some 8 Racing shock Towers on it

Thats what it looks like, maybe some team drivers are trying out a few things for the Worlds this year.

Yes I did, and checked Ryan Lutz's setups too. It doesn't matter so much if it's nitro or electric. I'm always running nitro setups on my brushless buggies, I just need a setup to start then I do little mods once I'm on the track if needed .

I'm just wondering which setup to choose as a basis for quite flat and loose track, with very few jumps. The car is all ready now, just waiting for its setup to race it tomorrow . I looked at many setups and vids but all the tracks have massive jumps so I doubt the setups I found are adequate

Looks like a different front bulkhead too...normally the front shock tower bolts in front of the front bulkhead...the one in that pic is behind.

Here's a bigger pic

It's not the first time they test "weird" things on the front bulkhead. Maybe what we're looking at here is just to add some weight on the front.

Also i think they might be testing a different chassis, or at least Jorn is not using the stock one.

Try this as a start: http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/867...ough422012.jpg

Now its a lot warmer in the UK, I have gone to 700cst front oil and 600cst in the back. Also moved to 10degree castor blocks to gain a bit more off power steering.

I'd like to build the kit from the start with a halfway decent setup on it so I'm not too far off.

Also, are people running the 2mm rear mod all the time, or is that a track by track type adjustment? I noticed on Lutz's setups that some listed it in the notes, but others didn't.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this, looking forward to my first foray into nitro.
Apparently no one has time to answer your question STG. I don't have an exact answer for you, BUT if you try and keep up with the Mugen in front of you throughout the race you should do just fine...
