What problems have you found with the shocks the quality of them is very good but the orings are a little tight so should be no need to run anything else

Default Shockers

They seem so stiff no matter what oil i try have seen the build tips that pete has done iam going to have a play around with them but with 25 in front and 20 in rear they were like a f1 car still which wasnt helping me grip wise at chadderton but wen i ran it on astro it was fine yesterday with these other shockers so i guess its about having to play with the shockers bit more

Sounds like you have the same issue i had with the o-rings.
Get a pack of the Yokomo High Grade Blue o-rings from MB Models, and a tube of green slime. They are a much better fit, and mine are super smooth now with these fitted.

Other than that, as Kev says, they are very good quality shocks

Ran the car over the weekend and was amazing very easy to drive, with zero problems or breakages. Just a few small set-up changes required before the next meeting.

The colour is Tamiya PS-24 Fluorescent Orange and then backed in white, the shell does look a little red in the picture but it is Fluorescent Orange.

Hope this helps..........

Question Out of interest

people keep saying this car feels more like a 1/8 car, but to a person like me that has never run a 1/8 car what does that mean? I am not talking about the solidity of the design, nor how it looks, but about the way it handles. Is it a case that the cornering, jumping, and how it handles the rough stuff simply different, or is it better so to speak. Again is it a case that it suits a certain type of driver over another?
I only ask this as I was at Maritime last weekend where Kevin took the win - that said Kevin can drive anything and make it look good. I did see several others going pretty well too.

Haha no it's just the only room where I live with decent lighting!!

Gearing wise I have been running 23/86 on a 7.5 but it feels a bit off...should I be going up on pinion?

possibly... with my 6.5tekin Gen2 motor I go from 21T to 23T
for a 7.5 I would recommend anything from 22T to 24T

Like that a lot Colin .

I have been looking at these on and off . I reckon it's what Durango should have done.

The layout looks interesting. Good luck at Worksop.

Yes Paul, I was very underwhelmed at Durango's new offering and this has loads of new innovative ideas and Sworkz have had some decent results with their 1/8th car and I loved the look of it so thought what the hell....
