Out of the box its one of the lighter buggies, final weight will depend on what engine, pipe, wheels tyres and servos you put in. We will of course offer options to lighten the car.

Thanks
Sales, graphics, some design & stress analysis in UK
Majority of design & prototyping Germany
Testing in Austria, Germany, central Europe, UK and USA
Production is in Taiwan (like most computers, bikes and RC product - the balance of price and quality is best there. There is also access to good machines and materials. TD does nothing in China).

So cars are leaving Taiwan destined for model shop around the world, depending on the shipping and turn around of distributors they should be in the shops by the 29th.

How about that "Spure-Brake system" is that going to be awalible as an option part?

Me and many others are realy hooping for that, it seems to be an excelent sulotion!! Not to mention super good looking.

When will we see the option parts in the shops?

Best regards

Spur gear brake system - we need more tests, it seems to work well on slippery/bumpy tracks where its easy to get it wrong under braking.
If there is enough demand we will make it.

Testing... Oh well, at least you guys doesn't seam over eager to throw a rubbish product on unsuspecting buyers. If anything i guess we should say thank you, for not using us all as beta testers. But i want it yesterday. Funny how that works.

I think it is a good tuning option to have.
will be the lighter options available at the same time the CAR arrive in the shops?

Ps.: you have a PM. have you seen it?

Thanks

Regarding options:

Is there going to be an electric/brushless conversion kit?

That would also be super!

No we don't use customer hard earned cash to test our product , that's our job.

We get as many options out as soon as we can, we are small company so impossible to be perfect with every thing but we always try hard.

I don't think so...(not now). I'm going to convert my DNX408 by myself, anyway I'll be very happy if Team Durango tell us when they expect to release the DEX408
