You could almost make that statement for any vehicle out there

On second thought maybe they are all switching to CATs haha

Maybe he has been thinking about getting one and when he saw so so many up for sale relatively quickly, he thought that maybe people are getting rid of them because they weren't happy with them and wanted to find out why, so he doesn't make the mistake of getting one if they weren't going to live up to his expectations...just a thought

people who race a lot often unload vehicles as the season ends or as they move into bigger more important races.. I mean there are so many other reasons too.. but I know I sell a buggy off every year, which really is in great shape. It's easier and costs nearly the same to just swap to all new and sell off a roller w/ the used to recoup than to mess with replacing individual parts and/or spending a sick amount of time inspecting and cleaning.

Well, in his thread he started two days ago asking about all the 4 wheels he stated he had a Schumacher. Either way, it's just all the vague questions lately

My question is: what are you wanting to know? There are 3 for sale right now, one of which is new. That doesn't constitute "a lot"

I love my Durango. Way better than my B44 I bought the cheapie and added the toe block and it was incredibly durable Friday night in the 8th electric class on an 8th scale track


So... What are you're questions...

Like I mentioned before. I just like to follow cars. When the mbx6/6t or the new losi came out, I didn't see any for sale for like 3 to 4 months later. Maybe even later than that. Yes, there are three on retch. But at local track, there are people considering to sell and other feel they can not find good setup. But then I hear it's a great car. So, I don't know what's what.

I'm very picky myself and have to have a clean car everytime I hit the track.
Cleaning a car can be fun too, but people that dont maintain thier ride
will find out that parts are breaking and stuff. The reason for that
is depending on who is driving it.

The people that are selling thier DEX410 is because parts support is
much better on a losi/ae/kyosho/tamiya. Im thinking.

I will agree on how hard it is to find a setup for this car. The car isn't wide spread yet so there aren't too many posted setups for US tracks. It will get better

As for parts support, my track carries parts for the guys who do drive the car, and AMain and RPP both ship very fast

I love mine, alot quicker FOR ME than my B44. Add the aluminum hinge pin mount up front and the rear bulkhead inserts and this car is bulletproof

It will get better. Every good thing takes time

Well, its time to clear out the indoor winter season stuff and make room for nitro again.
So I did a quick search for "Durango" and found these are the reasons people state they are selling.

Not a single person said they were unhappy

It's a good buggy, just not widely spread yet

It will get there
