Yeah... Or maybe that was to gauge regional interest? Who knows....

A complete, albeit blurry picture of the chassis...

Despite all the smack that has been spoken, I could totally go for a TD clone of a BD7.

What's interesting is that the latest images are moving away from the BD7 and have reintroduced some Tamiya style details (motor mount attached to top deck, one-piece suspension mounts).

If fact I'd go so far as to say that they are ARC details (look at the chassis plate). I've got a hunch that the production Durango might turn out to be another rebadged ARC (like the Capricorn car).

How funny, yes the blurred out pics are definitively bear an ARC resemblance.
Either way, they are starting to look pretty stupid with their claims of a "Game Changer"

Reminds me of the hype up that Team Magic used to do, only to release a flop of a product.

I think u will be very surprised! Regardless of what it looks like (tbh they all look the same these days) its the little bits that set each car apart. Every manufacture has its pro's and con's every manufacture has its this must work better otherwise why do we run it!
The new Durango is not a yokomo . Its not an arc it ain't a tamiya and despite people thinking with the colour its an xray guess what.... Its not!
Take all the cars pick the best bits from most, take the quality Durango have with its brilliant features and then add some of durango's designers ideas.

The result is durango's new touring car.

Watching it at the weekend was amazing but I feel this comes down to the thumbs themselves harper is prepared and will be a challenge.

I'd be more optimistic than that. Durango's R&D team seem to be on steroids these days with a pretty short time to market (compared to other manufactures - and they're are a pretty small shop too). I would hazard a guess it would be out in time for the fall/winter so it can compete in many of the indoor/winter events.

Durango's colour is close to gold more than Xray's orange.
