That's actually not so bad if it turns out to be true. Reminds me of when the Losi 8IGHT was released; the car made its appearance in early spring but didn't hit the shelves until late Sept/early October.

While that's possible, I don't think this is the cause of the delay. The "win on Sunday, sell on Monday" technique only really works if you, umm, you know. Win? Durango have (at least from what I can see) a fairly small team of drivers and while I won't doubt that they are very talented, they may not be Drake/Savoya/Hara caliber. In a nutshell, just short of a fluke, I don't expect a significant result at the worlds.

Also, it's not like Durango is making a car purely from scratch, as they've already had the 410 on the market for quite a while: VERY similar parts arrangement & materials between the two, so I don't necessarily buy this "steep manufacturing/learning curve" thing either. Of course, there are always unforeseen snags

I agree what you say, I want to say that the world is the best presentation for the car in any case indifferently from the drivers they have in the team, and we can expect that the car can be shipped to he distributors after the event, just the time of shipping to every country... like you say there are always unforeseen snags

I hope I'm wrong and they release the car after the summer or before

Maybe released overseas? I sure hope so!! that would mean shipping to USA will begin..maybe its one of those pre-order specials and then you wait 3 months after you give a deposit..It sure looks sweet though..I dont think I'm digging that square chassis
