I do not, but I should be run˝ing the upgraded plastic and aluminum chassis next weekend and will report back my experience. The car is all put together and ready to go.

Yup, bought a couple of cars with the upgrades off here. Anxious to give it a try and compare to the standard parts.

From team drivers I know there has been testing on new plastics, alu chassis and bulkheads.

I was talking to a team driver the other day that said the version that were sold as part of the kit on here was a few versions back so arnt the latest.

Least you know there still developing the car maybe a new version or new car could be coming.

I know one thing the car is really good as it is and it gives me satisfaction passing yokomos that are three times the price.

I'm with you, I love the stock durango, not sure what version the parts are I have but will be interesting to test against my 3 stock setups.

My Durango was on pace with the BD7, xray t4 2015, VBC d07, Tamiya 419, and the associated tc6.2s that were all in the amain this past weekend. Any one of the cars could have won the race. I qualified 4th, but had a body tuck on the second lap which pretty much took me out of contention. My Durango is a great car.

I don't think they are, I think they are still testing until release, best off asking Durango on that one

Ran the aluminum car for 1 round on Saturday, car was very responsive with lots of steering on entry and through exit. I ran softer springs 2 dot front, 1 dot rear and short links front and medium links in the rear. Was a little too responsive so I lengthened to medium front links and long rear, had a couole of issues and didn't get to run it more than 1 round. Had to go to my backup car.
Congrats to TBrymer on his win with his Durango this week. In the first round the new car was close to his pace. Our local track is very competitive with all brands represented, we typically have an A,B, and C main, TBrymer and myself are typically in the A main and very competitive with our Durango's.
