Default Team Durango DNX408

Looks like a pretty interesting car.

Is that a hydraulic brake set up in there? Also has a different looking throttle set up too.

thats why people say the new Serpent looks alot like the Durango (just think away the hydrolic brake setup in favour off a mechanic one, and put a nice radiotray on it).

i for one am excited about people trying out new designs, it is easy to bash people for trying something new but it is difficult to put your money where your mouth is and really try and be innovative. wait and see, some of these designs will make it one way or another. some company will like what they see, buy the designs, refine the concept, and put it into production.

i have seen the durango prototype drive at races with Jorn Neumann behind the wheel, very very impressive to say the least.

Placement of the PT shouldn't be an issue since it's the PT that sends the signal and not the nose of your car ( as in full size drag racing) . The PT can be hanging 10ft off the back and you'll still have the same lap times.

very true

there are some interesting concepts on most of the durango machines but many times they use other manufacturers vehicles to implement there concepts . they have some wild and crazy ideas for sure

Yeah, forgot about the most important part of the race, the main, when all cars leave at the same time. I was ( or wasn't ) thinking about the quals.
