Tom- thanks for sharing your Durango book with me.

Here is the setup I was using:
http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...eline20120603/

I changed the following:
No washer under front ballstud.
1mm washer under rear ballstud.
Losi 56 pistons in front with 35wt, Losi 55 pistons in rear with 35wt.

Car seemed okay but not bad for first time with it. Had lots of steering once I took the 3d's off the back and changed to the 1980's Losi Ifmar studs.

No problem Jason! Thank You for tips this weekend. Once I added more drag brake it was totally a different car. Thanks to Joe Brooks also!

Scheduled practice for 8/27/13 will be canceled. Our #1 concern is your health and safety. They are projecting upwards of 100 degrees today. We are watching the weather for the rest of the week and we hope the heat breaks so we can have practice on Thursday.

If anyone is looking for a good deal on e buggy tires I found some NIP vp pro pre mounts for $10.80 on ebay. I got a whole set for $28 with shipping!! Its an aka city blocks clone. They also have a caliper clone. And it looks like they have plenty in stock. Thought I should share that with you guys.
