That is essentially what Doughty told me.

On a more positive note, I just finished building a DEX210 for my kids. Still needs electronics and a body.

That's awful. I saw the end was near when Ryan Lutz left that was the beginning of it.
They are leaving not because they hate Durango or anything it was probably very difficult to get parts.

Real nice. That leaves no one that is high profile running for Durango now. Kinda sucks as they had a great team just a year or so back that was pretty damn good overall and won The Worlds so their damn cars are more than capable of winning.

Pisses me off even more when I go to Great Planes today to add to are hobby shop order and see the new Arrma Big Rock F'ing truck. They can keep bring out this lowend Arrma POS stuff that is to try to keep up with Traxxas (But fails IMO because to me if they trat Durango like that down the road Arrma will be just like that to and customers will not being able to get shit) so I wouldn't buy anything Arrma has. Great Planes if you read this I have to say you guys suck and are getting worse every year. More back orders than ever before and surely never get back to any of my emails and never call the shop like you use to once a week. Very disappointing indeed.

Hey WYD I wanted the Armma 1/8th electric buggy but after i found out
Duratrax had the 835e electric 1/8th buggy I got it instead. All i do is club racing anyway and a trophy race here and there.
I have never owned a Duratrax ever this is my first one, its very strong.

Yep. It's that time of the year. I'll probably pick up a set of foams for them but for now they get an old set of Pinpoints and Wedges.

the funny thing is that talking with people who own the arrma stuff they do like it a lot. You would think if they pushed stuff right, you could transition them into the Durango Race lineup.

Or Durango could bring back their RTR cars and trucks. They seemed to sell well and aside from the horrible tires, could go right to the track.

B6d is more and more appealing. Also the HB d216. I really don't want to do that since I just got the exotek chassis. The car drives great and is very competitive at my track. I swear this is slowly killing me haha

I am not happy about this either. I hope they get this straightened out and do not leave all of us Durango drivers without any support. I like having the different ride at the track. A few weeks ago I picked up the Exotek chassis and a few extra Exotek parts. Not to mention that I also bought the new v5 to replace my v4.
