Lutz has a driving style all his own. I think he could wheel just about anything. I swear I would love to see him back at kyosho. He was flying with the older kyosho stuff, couldn't imagine him now with the newer stuff.

As for the durango, well I owned one for a short time myself. It definitely requires a certain driving style to go fast with it. Some people it will fit some others it wont . Most that talked with including myself struggled with getting the rear locked down.

local, regional and some semi big events are one thing but, big events are a different story.. you might look untouchable in some of those races but when you have all the top dogs in the house for big events like ROAR Nats etc... this guys want their buggies to perform., i am sure that Lutz,Boots,Reno,Mcbright etc, look like they can't be stopd at smaller events but it has not been the case in the big events as far as i can tell..

just my opinion..

The Dingo drives really nice, it's just a cheap car. Axles break, the brakes suck, the car is a pain to work on....the bumper falls off....the list goes on and on.....I say they should be stuck in the contract for making bad decisions...You made ur bed....

Durango still has alot of top drivers. Lutz, Fischer, etc. Some drivers are just more loyal than others, and will stick out there contracts because its the deal they made. They will do their best to better the car and company, as they should. I know those two there wont be going anywhere, Durango has some good electric stuff and are making the adjustments needed to get their other stuff on pace from what I understand.

Lutz has been contending for top spots ever since he got the durango, won many races as well. Taylor James is getting faster with the car. Boots is fast don't get me wrong but he was making mains with the durango just as much as he did with mugen. He had a lot of dnf's with the mugen as well. Savoya was running a mugen for a long time, I don't believe he has had enough time to get the durango worked out for his driving style.

Drivers will have to move on. They are not loyal to be honest. Cause loyalty don't pay and it hurts that way. They need to win in order to keep their pay cheque.

If they keep on losing, they go un-notice and becomes un-marketable anymore. Then it would be a bigger problem.

Savoya is very good driver, but he doesn't have luck with durango.
He should move on with another company.

I could see him with RB tires, but I don't think he'll run the RB buggy -- it is a RTR targeted for the more novice/sportsman crowd. Unless of course they have Pro kit up their sleeves...
