Durango DEX210 Thread
 
Yet another 2wd mid-motor buggy!!

Actually it can be converted from mid to rear!. Layout will probably be similar to the new 2wd Schumacher.

nice
 
I like the fact that you can change the car from mid motor to conventional motor out back. Looks kinda expensive there is a lit of aluminum but it still a prototype. Looks good though.

In production if it even costs 70% of their 4wd car, that would be too expensive as well.

durability has its price.

looks like the top shaft holders move for adjusting the gear mesh.:weird:

Shiny!!! I wonder what the production version will cost. Good to see more players in the 2wd market.

Thing looks tits, Looks I may have to have a Durango fleet when it's all said and done.

I noticed that too. My question is what keeps the motor in?

I could guess clamps but i see no adjustment. I like the adjustability though, allows you to change gearing without messing up your weight bias by moving the motor. :0

Yet another amazing car from Durango. I wish they were available in the hayday 1/10 racing.

1/10 is still going strong :) If people release cars like this then it should be even stronger.

I can't see how that can cost 70% of the DEX410. 50% maybe.

badassrevo 01-15-2010 02:46 PM

Looks like a B4 front end and associated shocks.

There are some rumors that Axial will distribute the new 4wd and 2wd Durango cars for the US market (Axial and Durango are owned by the same Taiwanese company, Kingstar). Now that Scott Hughes works for Axial, this might seem possible.

Even it's proto it seems pretty fast:

Not sure I like the motor mount tranny setup. I'd rather adjust my mesh the old fashioned way by sliding the motor back and forth on a standard motor plate. Like the X-factory car.

Also while trinity duo motors would fit the mount well. Will Novak ballistic ribbed can motors?

Looks pretty cool other than that. Definately an indoor clay track oriented car.
