I'm in the market for a new buggy to race in spring and I'm holding out until I see how the Durango holds up in the everyday racer's hands. I think it looks like a really nice innovative buggy.... I hope it has the durability that most people need as well.

I guess I will just wait on the second batch in march......

I am all up for next batch in march as the racing season is over here on the east coast,except Motorama, which costs too much to race in anyway.(not the race itself per say, but just to race, park, setup(car and parking), hotel/motel rooms, gas, food,etc.

No doubt, but I will say it's worth it. However I did do alot of the other stuff there rather than just race rc. If I based my opinion on just the rc race then that would be; drive 10 hrs for 2 5 min practice sessions, 3 quals and a main? No thank you! Lol

Hi Brian, you could call it sales strategy thats true, but you can also call it good customer service.

People have been waiting on this car for ages (because its our job to make sure it tested properly not the paying customer) so we just wanted to let everyone know there is a gap in the supply chain, its then their choice what they do.

We just did not want people getting upset in the new year when they came to buy the car ready for the new season and then frying Durango for not telling them supply was limited.

LOL!!! I have absolutely nothing against TD, and if I could bring myself to spend 700 bucks on a car it would probably be this one. But to me instead of causing a panic by telling us we're sold out till March why not say for example, 500 kits are going here, 200 going there with the batches? Now that would be customer service!

And I am sure that TD will provide excellent customer service no matter how many kits go wherever.

700bucks - you know you want one!

IMO - stating batch sizes does nothing to ease tension, most people would just want the one kit for them, they don't care if France for example are getting X,Y or Z

Wouldn't it be time to switch back to the original dnx408 thread?
All this talk has nothing more to do with "Fast enough to win the worlds"...

I realize that is an unrealistic expectation. But we have all been through new product releases and we all know that the first batches will sell quickly, and that parts access can be limited. The sold out till march thing may have pushed more off the fence than over, just an opinion.

Default If are sponsored by another RC company why are you on this thread

I dont get it. I see JQ guys posting. Now an odonell guy. Brian why not stay on your own thread talking about why I cant get parts anymore for my odonell car instead of talking about being on a fence to purchase a car that based on your sponsorship you cannot run.
