Hey Everyone,
After the Neo-Buggy event all the Team Durango guys in attendance had a meeting the following day at the Durango HQ in England. We had the opportunity to take a look at the CAD of the new Truggy and I believe we all thought it looked great and were all jonesin to get our hands on it as well.
I would say there is maybe a 5% chance a couple of us will have it for the US Nats in a couple of weeks. But if that doesn't happen I would say we should have it within a few weeks after the Nats.
Durango has a lot of projects in the works. At the moment things are taking a bit to long to actually come out and they aren't happy about it either but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it should only get better from here!
I believe with just a little more patience we will all be rewarded with some awesome products!

I was looking through the qualifier standings for Truggy and it shows Lutz qualified 5th with a Durango Truggy!!! Does anybody know if he is driving a prototype or if it is another brand truggy?

On that same site on the home page it says this:

"Running 14 laps Team Durango driver Ryan Lutz, who is running a Mugen this weekend ahead of the arrival of Durango’s Truggy, was 5th fastest ahead of the similar Alpha powered MBX6-T of Taylor Peterson. Responsible for designing Serpent’s 811 Cobra-T, Billy Easton took it to the seventh fastest time ahead of defending champion Jared Tebo whose Kyosho completes the Top 8."

So he's running a mugen truggy.

I am also eagerly waiting . I think it will be a few months yet though. TD certainly have a lot going on with 2wd buggy (good result at the worlds for a prototype) and the truggy and I guess the electric buggy.

They are simply losing customers to other companies such as the Serpent

they are a new company, and a smaller group and just 3yrs old. things take time, they do have alot going on. continually developing their DEX and the DNX, working on the 210 and the E Buggy and creating a truggy (which the buggy really has to be right before you can release the truck).

they will be out and in force eventually. even if it took 2yrs for all the platforms to come out, they would have possibly the most potent product line up available.
