As a one-weekend-a-month warrior, I wholeheartedly dispute that "fact". The Durango is quite easy to set up and to get handling properly. For me, it was easier to set up than my Losi.

I never said anything about why the designer quit more than that it was because of the companies management, which you kinda said yourself there. And if Im not mistaken there were only 2 designers at that time? Its unimportant though. Its also unimportant if it was 10 or 13 years, it said 13 years on neobuggy but the point was that its a freakishly long time to sign a contract on. ALOT can happen in 10 years of racing. Companies come and go, Durango is still a small company and still needs to sell their products to cover from all the productioncosts of all the new cars theyre making.

Fact also stands that its a difficult car to setup and its a difficult car to drive, because it has immense steering. It might not be for you, but it will be for the weekend racer, you know the people who will carry the company, cause theyre the ones thats going to buy the cars. And as I said earlier, shiny aluminiumparts WILL NOT make up for a frustrating car to own, not in the long run.

I didnt write this to be a troll and bash on other brands, I wrote this because my personal oppinion from what you hear about Durango on forums, places like Neobuggy and others, and from people running the Durango is that Durango seems to have a very odd way of running its business. Seeing as how its a new brand on the market, it needs to stand out as something better, which I really dont think it has. And I really dont think JQ has succeed in that either.
But only time will tell, and Im man enough to admit if I was wrong, and I honestly and truely hope that I am.
Sorry Bud, but you need to stop using the word "FACT" when you do not have any facts. I think you need to go back to your Nitro Rustler.

All of I have seen from Ryan this year is plenty of A-Mains and podiums. I also watched him flame out in the middle of the A and still win bye atleast a lap over plenty of Pro Drivers. It was silly to watch and a sign the car is holding nobody back.

Yes, the tank issue is a bummer...but you have you "facts" all wrong and look like a tool everytime you post.

Does anyone know how long it will take for this to come out? They said it is official in November of 2010 and it is nearly November of 2011 so when will we see it.

Thanks

From what I have heard the "truggy" popularity is sort of petering out across the globe. I wish it wasn't so. It has really died out here locally.

And how many other vehicles are they working on right now? DEX210, DEX408.... I think most of what people are saying are just rumors.

More people need to run them... IMO its a superior class to buggy. Sure its easier to drive but that just makes it more fun! Drive it harder!
