They are different because that was a pre-production car, TD drivers have been using those new parts for a while, and at least Hupo runs carbon shock towers.
The DEX408 pics show the new ones too(also in carbon).

True enough, they have been in testing for a few months. The point I was trying to convey is that once you see pre-production pics of a car like we did in spring, that's usually what you'll get in the box, regardless of whether it's the best setup possible or not.

Just the fact that they were willing to postpone the release for months, depriving themselves of sales and revenue while they tested and tweaked little details is worthy of mention.

I spoke to someone yesterday, who has been using the Durango at the Worlds, and apparently it is running REALLY well.

It has a good handling balance and is strong (unlike some manufacturers I wont care to mention that have had 4 chassis replacements so far).

I was told it will be out at the end of November following a few last minute tweaks.

Pleasingly there are no servo failures or any other reliability issues to report.

4 chassis replacements??? Who? Tell us! Tellustellustellustellustellustellus!!!

The 'no servo issues' part is the most surprising, because the track looks extremely unforgiving and from the footage I've seen, if you lose your synchronicity with regards to jumps or corners, your car looks like it's going through a rock tumbler!
