Good Point. Reguardless...Im still getting the 410R when it comes out, then slowly upgrade with the tasty alloy bits as needed.

I would guess they will be available again when the R comes out at the end of April maybe....???? As soon as the plastic sides are available, I'm getting them!

Does anyone foresee a price reduction once the US distributor is sorted?

LOL, yeah, if they want to sell more than 2 of them! I know it's a great looking car, but that price is WAY too high.

There are already quite a few in this country, without a distributor here. Price is not relevant for a high quality kit that needs little or no upgrade to win. People spend 2 to 3 times more on puffy 1/8th scale gas buggies, road race cars, and just as much on an 8th electric buggy. The cost of a Durango DEX410 is nothing compared to how much money MANY racers spend on all classes of race cars.

yea run a b44 for two months, add up all the a-arms shock shafts and other broken and wore out parts, throw in some b-fast diff rings and balls and you have the cost of a durango. id rather spend my money up front and get a superior kit!

Does anyone have more information on the DEX410 replicas that are coming out of Japan? At least that's what I heard. A local racer told me that he read an article on neo-buggy.net but I haven't seen it. If anyone has more information about this please post it so that others be aware and don't make the mistake of buying a cheap replica.

Doesn't look like they are available yet but there is a company called Alien Power that has some drawings of their car thats coming out, looks just like a DEX410 http://www.rc-news.de/wp-content/upl...buggy_2010.jpg

Not Japan, China. The info on these popped up here. They are supposedly coming from a company called "Alien Power" which is using a Photoshopped photo of an actual Durango in their marketing material as a "teaser shot." You'd think an operation like Racer Magazine would be a little sharper than that.

There is a big thread on oOple about them, too. Lots of hostility toward Chinese knock-off companies, in general.


I didn't know about them, but there are apparently complete knock-offs of the Schumacher Mi4, too. After seeing the photos of the copy, there should be laws against that sort of thing. I mean, it's virtually identical, and only someone very intimate with an actual Mi4 or genuine Schumacher parts would be able to tell the difference by sight.

Just buy it direct, or from an authorized seller. Problem solved.
