I don't understand why people are jumping ship to be honest? I just ran mine on my track here at the house and I absolutely LOVED it. Buggy had a TON of turn in and rear traction. It drives better than my last losi buggy. I currently have Lutz's Neo setup on it I believe. Need to go check my setup sheet to double check. I just know for sure it's one of Lutz's setups. Also have the 2mm rear mod done. Car drives great. I'm VERY happy with mine and also glad to report no tank issues so far with the stock tank. B6 held it's tune perfectly tank after tank.

It may snap in half next time out but my first impressions with it are awesome.....
I'm stayng put. But I am looking at doing some more mods. And yes can't wait to run mine again!

Is that why everyones leaving? I thought the car looked good for lutz... I'm shocked with how everyone just gave up on the buggy all of a sudden.

I think that is somewhat natural for many folks that try new buggies. They will buy one, run it for awhile, then try another one. Not necessarily unhappy with one, but want to try many to find out what works best for them.

I have built two dangos, two Agamas, one JQ, two serpents (well, 1.5 serpents anyway), many Losi's and RC8B's this year and think that they all have strong and weak points.

The Dango has some monster strong points, and a few weak ones, and will be a force for a long time dude!

WOW thats a heck of a price decrease!

As for seeing a bunch of 408's in the for sale section, its probably no more than normal. Look at how many people bought JQ, Agama, Serpent and had them for a while and sold them. You guy's are only noticing now because its the Durango going thru its phase. People try it and id don't fit them, so they move on to something else. No big deal really.

Of coarse the Durango drives good for Lutz! He's a pro, its what he does. I was fortunate to meet him at the Area 54 race and he's a hell of a nice guy, and a pretty good turn marshall to boot!

Many of the people here laughed and pointed when the Serpent was blowing throttle servos, and the JQ car was having plastic issues with the cold weather. Those companies had to go back to the boards and fix some issues.
And they came back strong. No doubt Team Durango will do the same.

Either Durango has lowered the price now that it's out and not in high demand or they are fixing to release an updated version are my guesses.....

The JQ is also reduced to $419 at Amain. Is this just the beginning of lower prices for a couple of the new platforms?

Might have something to do with the exchange rates coming down.....or they have paid for initial startup and now the cars are coming down in price....who knows but all in all it just helps out the consumer!

Actually the serpent and mp9 have gone up. The mp9 was 849 till after the worlds and the serpent was 499 till after the worlds. Both went up and have stayed. I'm sure some others have stayed the same price but those are the only 2 that have gone up.
