done
So if your comment:

"Ill garuntee you that he knows a hell of a lot more about tuning a car and things that work on an RC car than gerd does."

is not flaming on a person not present in the forum then what is ?

Anyway this is really a way off-topic anyway so I think we can all agree to stop here and wait untill the car is in hands of public just like with the Serpent one.

I am not here to start any trouble. I was just discussing my thoughts, anyway like I said, Billy did a good job with the Serpent. Not trying to bash anybody.

Later

You'll show them...

I'm gonna shoot them an email about a pre-order. Hell, if I dont like the car it will look nice sitting next to my new collection of vintage cars. Given the past success of the company, I have little doubt this entry will be competitive. I'm willing to bet I'd have the same level of success regardless of what car I was driving.

Right now the problem is that Durango have no distributor or dealer network here in the U.S.

Until then, we probably won't see this buggy.

I'm pretty sure the company that owns Axial racing also own durango. It would make sense for them to use the axial distribution network in the states - esp given scotty hughes' recent appointment?

Untill there is a distributor network in place you can order directly from Durango. They have reasonable freight rates and FedEx is pretty fast in shipping. I'd assume this works also for the DNX408 unless they will have the distribution ready at the time of the release.

Realistically, distribution would have to be in place already, taking pre-orders, in order for a true April 2010 worldwide release. There's also word out that the factory suffered a recent accidental set-back from a mold fire.

Hey guys no need to argue

Im and engineer from the Aircraft industry and i also did alot more study while i was an avionics engineer and beyond .I learnt most of my mechanical stuff by asking questions and working close with the mechanical engineers at the Airline.

engineers and designers are to different things but you can be both ,any tom dick and harry can design something on a piece of paper and give it to an engineer to work out all the math and the final cad drawing .The engineer will know the strength ,the flexibilty and the safety procedures of the project but you do need a driver who knows how the buggy works and the way it should be done .Alot of high end drivers know geometry and to be honest here in Australia Ian Haley now HB driver is one of the best when it comes to geometry even though he has no engineering degree but a wealth of experience.

When you have a great driver and designer like Billy easton and a top notch enginner who knows the rest then you have a combination of 2 smart people that have produced a great product like the serpent cobra .

so guys dont bag people who are trying to bring you a great product for you to enjoy and have success with .

I engineer products for the rc industry but if it wasnt for the drivers input and advice i would be knowhere and that's a true fact .I get advice from wayne walker.ian haley ,josh paine and many more as i dont drive(havent driven since 1993 and i dont know how the buggy should react so i put my faith and trust in these guy to give me feedback on my products and i love to be critised as i work even harder then to perfect it.

happy racing guys .

regards Angelo

At a variety of sources. You'll have to do your own research if that interested. Remember a set-back is a set-up to come-back.

I wonder when they are going to reveal the rest of the details. I want to see what the fuel tank design is!

I have searched all oople, neobuggy, redrc, sgrid and other sites and no mention of any of this.

Also they already have a distribution network, direct Internet sales. Many US cutomers myself included have been supported this way without issues. I order Sunday night and Wednesday morning my package arrives.

Uhm..... If so.. There would be a slew of brand name cars suffering a back log as well.
