Looked very good on track, will be interesting to see how in handles in the hands of us mere mortals
It was blisteringly fast. And looked easy to drive... interesting to see what the final Durango car looks like

Elliot Harper was just on it yesterday , very fast and very smooth all day long. The car is still in the prototype stage right now so any release date is stay a little way off just yet

Mod A-Final video's , Elliot Harper starting pole in the orange car and never challenged.

I think it's more to do with Elliott to be fair.

Not been funny but, how do you know, It was a hybrid half yok/durango. So you don't know for sure how the actual durango will go

The MI5 is going to be a competitive car, you'll see...

The car Elliott ran this weekend was almost completely Durango. There were a few Yokomo parts on it, but I don't think it's fair to say it was "half" anything!

For sure the results indicate the car was very good, and it also seemed quite easy to work on too. There's a lot of neat little featured you may not see at first glance, but are really cool things to have on a Touring car! I'm sure both Elliott and the Durango guys back at the factory will keep working on it, especially with the first National back at the track in 2 weeks time.

At 2:15 in the first final you can see Elliot crash at the end of the straight, he broke the top deck in two but didn't realise until it was on his pit table

He was getting 67mph down the straight.

Same track and meeting from the driver stand so you can see how big it is, sorry, it's the Mod B Final
+ YouTube Video

Gee, can the pictures be a little more blurry? I can still see some detail on the car...

Not to be a naysayer, but this is yet another copy of a copy of a copy... Same old 2 belt design with the adjustable flex top plate. The only fresh and original design out there is the Awesomatix. Nothing new here but yet another TC with a different color anodizing.
