Mostly, but I dont have the springs or swaybars because they arent avail until this week and I am using 15-10-5, didnt have any 12k, I also went one hole lower on the inner towers, otherwise its close. I messed with it all day and it was getting better. I need a good practice day to completely dial it in. I was very impressed that it went from parts in a box to the track without a hiccup. Nothing broke and nothing came apart. Great build and great car.

Come on at least be accurate with your posts. Durango isn't offering anything.

why?

what are you afraid of?

what are you trying to hide?


i'm interested in the Durango so i'd like to read more about peoples experiences with it.

but. when i keep seeing posts banging on about an alleged driveshaft issue thats actually never ever happened i do like to make the occasional post that might get a fanboy flapping

its all just light hearted banter, at the end of the day the sales figures will show which buggy has more universal appeal

...apart from a tough, innovative, high quality and FAST fast buggy that pros are queueing up to test. I'm sure you tested one, how was it?

But if you want to race at the NEO11 you need to get a JQ....

Only 3/10 Entry Confirmed for the Durango Drivers and 15/34 entry for JQ... hummm there is a not fair favoritism

so only 10 durango owners have booked in for this race?

i guess they must be scared of the big jumps


all joking aside though. if we take the entry list for this race as an indication of market share then THE car with pop out driveshafts has sold 3.4 times as many units

thanks for bringing this to everybodys attention
