So does anyone run the rear shocks in the front like the stock set up?

I've been doing this for 20 some years. I still don't have all the answers. Heck, the answers i do have, might turn out to be wrong. But i am more then happy to answer questions, and argue for why one thing is more right then an other.
Of course, thats how i go through life on a whole as well. If i have time, (and i have plenty of time) i answer questions, about pretty much anything i have knowledge about. A few of the things i have knowledge about can get you killed if you mess up, and people tell me it's wrong to share the knowledge, but i'd rather help someone do a "bad" thing in a safe way, then have to read about the fella in the newspaper when he accidentally killed him self not knowing what he did was unsafe.

Luckily, this being about RC cars, the likelihood of someone getting killed by poor practice seams slim.

Is this just coming from the design of the ep cars? And Wat difference does it really make to the car?
I see a lot of ppl on here have a good imagination with a few different tricks. Nice work from the guy designing those sway bar holders
Regarding the rear shocks being mounted forward or backwards, it's really a tuning option more than anything. I have run the car both ways, and while it's not a huge difference, I prefer to run the shocks out back. I'm not qualified, nor do I understand the engineering reasons behind it, but like that the durango was designed to run both ways, and it only takes a few minutes to switch between the two setups.

This might help for the wire routing:

The antenna goes in the hole on the back side of the receiver box:

I have been using the Buku clutch since I got my DNX408 late last year and I am very impressed with it. I run the Komposite shoes and they are holding up very well and require almost no maintenance! Plus adjusting the clutch to your liking is so easy with the set screws in the flywheel. I started off with the recommended settings from Buku and only tweaked it a little bit to get it perfect for my driving style and I think I have only touched it once since for a tighter indoor track. The price is pretty high compared to the stock clutch, but in my opinion it is well worth it.

Had a similar debate. But like the low maintenance shoes and easy trackside adjustments of the Buku.
Little track time as yet, but from what I've read and the build quality and documentation that came with it, I'm happy so far.

I guess I'm going to go with buku then. I will break in my engines with the stock clutch for now. The stock clutch is decent I just want something that's easy to adjust track side.
