G Durango whats next Adam Drake? lol. They are getting good drivers and alot of them, i guess the more you got the more the odds you have to win right? So do what it takes bad thing is now hope cars dont break back to back that always makes stuff look bad. I know durango has quality so can;t really happen but is possible for any team. Would of been cool to see Lutz win, kind of like an in ur face i can win type of deal would of been cool.

Amen brotha!

I love hearing this as not only has Savoya been one of my favorite drivers, but he also frequents my local track to practice. Hopefully he'll come up with a good setup and let me steal it!

what i meant to say is he took the money and ran with it. There just no way he would choose durango over a Losi Serpent Xray or kyosho.

Don't think so.... It will make the cars very expensive; look at this:

+ YouTube Video

I do not know of any who make more than 50k unless they might win something with contingency. Most make next to nothing, maybe travel expenses and free stuff.
