Do you then use lighter fluids like losi or heavy like a durango?

FWIW With the Losi, the fluid weights for setup did not change weather you use stock or HD diff cups so my guess would be it would stay the same.

Durango problems -1!!!

Good work

I run the JVD clutch which is basically the same thing. Yes it is 34mm and yes it is a direct fit.

Sorry to hear it too- but seriously - basing whether you keep a car or not on what is said on a forum thread (especially when it is so childish like in the last few pages) is crazy! No matter what the brand.

Ignore the rubbish and take notice of what suits you. I presume you bought the Durango and or JQ because you liked it - dont let internet warriors (who rarely represent the manufacturer) cloud your judgement.

Lets keep it about the cars and set up and helping eachother - not carrying on like kids playing with toy cars......................oh wait!

If you dont have something constructive to say - dont bother, thats what I was always taught.

Cheers

Darryn

Sorry for the spelling, I am on my phone.

That is a silly reason to sell a car. You should have kept that to yourself.

Factoryteam08' how old are you? You sure spend allot of time on here? Between you and a few others, i would say school must be out on break. Lol.

Whatever anyone thinks about Durango, remember.....they are new to RC and have built a higher quality car than companies that have been doing this fo4 25 years.

AE can't even make a damn fuel tank
Losi.....well we all know it's issues
Xray makes a new car every freaking year.
Mugens are excellent cars, and so is kyosho.
Etc etc

They are all good cars, all have some issue. To dog during, JQ is just being a child. It really makes you look like an ass. Why all the smart ass comments?

These new cars are fun me, something different and a challenge.

It is really beyond me why a designer/owner of a certain brand comes into another brand's thread to defend his product there...

Why all the defensive and smarta$$ posts? Isn't the product itself good enough to defend itself?

The proof of the pudding's in the eating, there is no need to hard sale anything here, we are all intelligent enough to know the good from the bad...
