Obvious Ryan could wheel a TCWW "trash can with wheels", but it just me or does the Durango look much more stable than the other cars in the vids on Neo?

Wow, imagine what it will look like once he as it dialed!

4 chassis replacements I believe that. I have seen the pics of chassis after a few runs, and the track is so rough that the chassis's looks like someone took a grinder to them, or grabbed the buggy by there hands and compressed the suspension to the point of chassis dragging and grinding the chassis into blacktop/concrete by hands till the chassis was worn thin, needing replacement.

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.
Agreed, wasn't my intention to correct you or anything, just adding some info

That's something i like about TD, they're really "serious about racing" and not so focused on sales, they're always improving things.
I know a lot of people who just want the car NOW and they get all pissed off, they don't realize this is what will make it such a great car.

I agree. While I have not been waiting as long as some, I will have been waiting a few months by the time it is released. Patience is a virtue and for the most part good things always come if I just seem to wait a little longer. I think this car will be top notch. Completely agree with what was quoted. I just hope that it gets here soon!!

I realize that Team Durango needs to produce two vehicles which have been announced and not yet shipped (DNX408 & DEX408) but has there been any talk about an 1/8th scale truggy? Considering switching to the 408 platform for next year's racing season but I really like the cross compatibility of running the same MFG's buggy and truggy....

Apparently, a truggy will be made if there's enough interest on it, but they're busy with the buggy as well as the DESC410R and DEX210 so it could take a while...
