Got a respone from them; His distributor "told" him the durango is on stock.
He won't accept paypal because "a friend" has problems with them...and so on...

I request a photo of the kit and the contents, lets wait what he will answer.

Then it sounds dodgy... Guess we'll have to be patient.

If they try to tap-dance around providing a picture of the actual kit, then you'll know it's a crock.

Whats the status on the durango atm?
If this thing makes it out before the MP9 TKI2 (13aug in sweden) it's definitely a purchase, but it's looking dark atm isn't it?

I heard winter this year. Close to the end of the year. It will be a next season car for sure.

Well no matter when it comes, I am stoked! Over engineered for sure, but probably won't have to buy another buggy for a few years. Will practically pay for itself

Interesting that Durango have gone with a 5mm chassis wher as Mugen, Serpent etc go with 3mm.

Surely that will make it pretty stiff? That to me is a major difference between the Serpent and the Durango.

Time will tell whether that affects driveability.

milling flex pockets will allot flex where they want it and also where they don't....i bet side by side the 3mm is comparable weight to the 5mm with all the milling.

With a 5mm chassis and tons of aluminum I don't see that buggy being a light weight.

people seem to think car's get heavy just because they have lot's of alu... i think thats wrong because you can make aluminum parts thinner and therefore less weight.... for example: the HB VE8 plastic chassi is 100-200grams heavier than the aluminum optional chassi....
