Many many people picked up my buggy that day on the bench. Most of them I know but there were a lot of hands on it. I don't think someone sabotaged it.

No dnf I finished 4th or 5th. The diff was still snug where it should be.

The black-Losi spring equivalent of durango?
Thanks
I would try 7-7-5. I started with 15-10-5 Nd the front pulled too hard which left the back very loose. The Losi blk springs measure the sime diameter on the wire as the stock blue durango springs. I liked the Losi green springs best. I tried silver green and black.


I would also add that I took the diffs apart yesterday center and rear and it was very very easy. Take the engine out and then 4 screws on the top and the center diff comes right out. Take the front cover off and the front diff slides right out. Very very simple. I like it.

The Losi black springs are softer than the blue durango.
I've proven with the setup of geometries series.
In the oil shocks 300 Losi, blue springs, and also provide black Losi springs.
with 10.000/5000/3000.
What do you think the setup?
bell 13 or 14?

Depends on the track and the engine. Big track and go with the 14, small track and go with the 13. Your engine needs to have enough bottom too to push a 14 tooth. Some do and some dont.

How does the 0 or 1 degree rear hub carriers affect the cars performance?

I think, if you are running the 2/3 bushings with 0 degree rear hubs you'll have 3 degrees of toe in. If you run the 1 degree rear hubs I believe it will give you 4 degrees of toe in......although I haven't measures it and could be wrong...

At the moment the car has 3* of inboard toe. If you use the 0 rear hub you retain that 3* of rear toe. If you use the 1 degree on the normal way you will have 4* of rear toe. If you swap sides on the rear hubs is makes it +1 and you will have 2* of rear toe!
Hope that helps.
