It's a bag full of Ryan Lutz fairy dust. Just in three sizes. Sprinkle on your buggy for a performance like Ryan's. Works for heats, not main's....sorry. And if you purchase the Alpha Lutz engine the dust will tune the engine automatically to current temperature, humidity, and elevation conditions....



On a serious note, that is curious...

My "guess" would be it is all the parts to make your original 408 the "new" V2.....tank, radio box, fuel cooler, throttle mount, etc....

If your search "Durango DNX408 Update Bag" your come across part numbers TD290014, 15 and 16. These are PNs for updated turnbuckles. I'm guessing that's all it is...

I've been wrong before.

I think the part numbers for the turnbuckles has been revised to TD310214, TD310215 and TD310216

Anyone having troubles ripping his shock diaphragms ref. 330097 ?

Just wanted to change my shock oil and all 4 are ripped. Did I do a mistake here or is it a known problem?

Known issue. I have been using Losi bladders with no trouble...

The bladders have been updated to solve this problem.

Good to hear, thanks. Lets hope I'll have the good batch if I order them online.. I might go for the Losi if they are a direct fit, just to make sure.

Is there any other known issue on the v1 version except everything related to the nitro version (I'm running a conversion)?

Just go with the Losi ones. I doubt you'll get the new ones if you ordered it online.
