If you are going to try to take a cars or companies bad reputation off their hands by winning one race it just isn't going to happen. I still say that if you are the better driver, you are going to win the race. Give me a stock 2wd buggy, and I will put it against your duratrax, I would bet my S2000 that the stock 2wd would win the race in my hands. Not saying that I am the god of racing or anything, but I have a lot more expirence than a lot of other people, I have raced every class from 1/12 on-road, to 1/8 off-road. You were a better driver than the people you raced against, even if they didn't crash or whatever, they still couldn't handle the power of their buggies as well as you did.

I think that what ever you like thats your own opinion each brand has its good & bad things about their products nothings perfect. Just because you race one brand doesnt mean that you should ripp away on a different brand. Every body has their own likes and dislikes.

No, that wasnt in any way made to tell any one off, Im hardly angry here. Just proving my point, and poiting out how your making ideas that dont correlate with the other stuff you said. You were saying that the Nitro evader was a copy of the xxxn-t (Which I have, I would know) It is a fact that almost all stadium trucks look very similar. That being said you seem to imply that the NE is a copy of everyother stadium truck out there, when in realioty it is a fact that the ST chassis is very hackneyed thus they all look the same no matter what brand!

Obviously the point has been missed. I did not mean that Duratrax directly copies products from other manufacturers. They might, but that's not what I was saying. What I was saying is that they get an idea of a product to replicate from whatever is popular, think about how they can make a similar product inexpesively, then sell it and make money. Hence, a cheap product. What you do with it doesn't change what it is.

Oh, and the RC10 GT and XXX-NT are different. Just by looking at them you can tell the layout and designs differ. Obviously there are only so many ways you can layout a chassis. Mugen "copied" Losi but even Mugen made some changes to improve it. Duratrax would have just anodized the chassis a different color, slapped a body on it and said "there it is!"

Thing is, you arent going to change any opinions people have about the car with only 1 race won. When duracrap wins the worlds, people will recognize them as people who make a nice product.

I dont really know what track you are running at, but I'm sure if you ran at The Dirt in Hemet, CA, you would change your mind and kinda see things through my eyes. You would have to go pick up a competition buggy to even qualify near the A-Main...

There's a guy with a Duratrax Evader racing against our Losi's B3s and my Schumacher fireblade and he embarrases the hell out of us by winning constantly, having cars costing more than 3 times what he paid.

Thanks Dirk, at least someone here isnt as biased as everyone else. I feel that being biased is so naive.... I racfe at Action Hobbies Track out in Levittown PA. I still disagree with anyone here who is saying that my buggy wouldnt stand a chance anywhere else. Im convinced that its a perfectly good "COMPETITION" vehicle

No problem DR RushQuake PH. In addition I'd like to point out that the Evader stands up better to crashes, compared to the B3 and even the B4.
