Finally a company got smart and realized the better layout, weight distribution that the Caster design offered and went with it. So now I can say the Durango looks alot like a Caster

But is all seriousness it is a nice buggy.

We will see.... Car looks good, but for 2x the price it should be. What makes me laugh is how they all are tied together.

If you really believe that td, agama, caster, jq, gs, mugen, tq, ocm, intech are not all tied together, you are silly.

Any car can be fast. Its more about the driver than the ride.

The reason AE is always at the top is because they have the best drivers. Give those guys any car and they would do work with it.

True, but also the same driver will be faster with one car over the other. I dropped 1 sec going from the Losi 2.0 to the MBX6, then dropped another .5-1 sec going from the MBX6 to the S811. All running the same batt/motor combo.

Well being how he is the Owner of Caster Racing USA I would say yes he probably knows a bit more tan the average Joe when it comes to the retail side of this biz.

So first you claim Caster has nothing to do with the rest and now you claim Caster makes the cars you mentined or what ?

Anyway it's not a secret who makes TD but for sure it's not Caster and besides they don't even claim they manufacture in-house. Also it's not a secret that 2 cars made in the same factory does not make them equal in performance or in quality. It's all down to spec and design. So really you should not even try to claim DEX408 would have something to do with Caster. Cars share same lay-out principles in battery placement and that's it. Needless to say the whole geometry is from different world. It's like you compare your SK-10 to DEX410 full-spec. You can do that but does it mean they really are a like ?

Anyway let's first get the car out and to tracks and see from there.
