If Hobbico wants people to take this car seriously in the US, they're going to need a 'road team.

Another weekend of watching the Durango being put to the test in the uk, it may not have won the weekend but did it looked soo good.
There was two at the national this weekend and they looked very good changing direction very quickly and riding the bumps effortlessly. This car most definatly should be at the top of ur wish list.

If we bombard durango with email's complaining of the release date they may respond!
Rumour has it car is finalised.............

He was a pro driver, no surprise he still has it!

Looking forward for the new kit

The point is he has not put the laps in like the majority of the other racers that were there and he put the durango down and it went exceptionally well. Even a pro without doing much stick action will not be as quick as one that does.
The car looks very good it's gonna be a definite race changer

when i gave up racing in 2004 ben was a top 5 driver and he won a few races but i dont think he managed a championship,so dont expect to much,but as a returnee myself i find modern cars(xray t4) very easy to drive compared to my old tc3,its taken me 6 months to get back into the swing of things,i race at amcc and wlrc where ben was a regular

it's got a lot more work to do to be a race changer. One single guy has done good with it.

After seeing this car in the flesh I have to say I was a little dissapointed, it's had good results but lets face it EH would get great results with any car! just like he dominated the uk carpet races with a bd7.......

The xray t4 was a game changer..... What makes a game changer is when your average joe like me opens a box builds a car put a car on the track and goes .2 seconds a lap faster than pb from doing nothing but buying and building a car!
If 5 average joes do this .2 seconds a lap faster is a podium changer

Undoubtably with Harpers thumbs a box n 4 wheels would look impressive.
I've seen 4 different people drive the Durango now and look at my previous posts, I saw a far less experienced driver put the Durango around west London apart from the fact he could not turn he's head fast enough down the straight he used the full power available through the infield and he made the car look good..... That is evidence enough u cannot give a driver with no modified experience a fully blown 4.5 tight technical track and him make the car that good! The car definatly has something in it...

Okay. But no average Joe runs one. Even the slowest of pros puts most club racers to shame.

I'm not saying it wont be a game changer. But I haven't even seen any up close pics of the car. Let alone pics of what will be released for production. So I think it's a little premature.

How did it do in 17.5 stock. That's a true chassis test IMHO.

Only modified class had them in, I appreciate you've seen no images yet, and in all fairness looks no different to the standard style tc...... It's the small things that make it very good and different.
