The Centered, low CG design could be wicked in Truggy? Where can we pre-order?

What droop settings is everyone starting iut with?

so i working on my dnx408 and the lower servo saver arm is cracked again.... (sec time) please address. and yea the center diff is still leaking like a sive. but going threw everything else and.... Money. would like to see a rx box that you can take the battery out without disturbing the antenna and s/w its a pain when your in a rush with all that wiring. going to try 4-7-7 on my diffs and 40wt in the shocks. would like more rear traction on power coming out of corners had 5-10-15 and 600cst in the shocks....

Another thing you could try for more rear traction is moving the rear hub forward and making the wheelbase shorter. You will lose a little bit of steering but this car has tons of steering, but you will gain rear traction.

- Yeah, the swivel for the brake link on the servo horn is upside down
- the hinge for the linkages to the brake/throttle looks set maybe 15 degrees too far counterclockwise.
- the EPA on his throttle servo is set too far on the throttle side
- the silicone hose bushing and washer is set too far from the swivel, which ill give some lag on the brake side, unless he wants that lag
- the on/off switch is set so that on is forward of the car. better to have "on" towards the rear, so that if the car impacts on anything (which usually happens moving forward), and the switch catches, the electronics won't get turned off.

Also helps to put a small spring (like the spare one for the brake) on the other side of the throttle swivel (opposite the long spring) to help it go back to neutral. A bit of a fail-safe.

you should run a switch with on facing foward. think of a car crash when someone hits something head on do they fly out the back window or the front. same thing with a switch. dont mean to hijack a thread or anything I have just been doing alot of reading up on the durango.

Why the hell would anyone run a switch. Just one more thing to fail. Mini deans here.

@FrankL You run the mini deans outside the box? I haven't built my durango yet. Going to start this week. Can't wait. That is why I was looking at that video to see how that the link works.
