I asked in the other thread but looks like this is the hot one.

The tank is a solid mount pick up or clunk type.
looks solid but someone from hrp said it had something inside to work like a clunk when upside down!!

didnt think you could have both so iam asking, cant wait two weeks to see for myself lol

I was just told it was around 3400-3500g at the World's, seems like a heavy car to me.

I think, Pattaya was a very special track, so I have my doubts if this setup will be useful...?

Tank - does not have a clunk, but its does have large webs inside to stop the fuel sloshing about, we will show photos on the website.

Weight - at the worlds the guys ran with steel plate in the chassis, to control chassis wear, but it added a lot of weight. On that track durability was more important.

Pattaya set-up - that set-up and several more will be on the DNX408 kit page once its live , which should be this week

I'm waiting for the new kit and spares page to see finally all parts in detail.

Ps.: I noticed that the most important news web sites seams to be boycotting Team Durango News and products... I think Only one give the right importance..

News sites sell advertising space and Durango is investing in product rather than advertising right now, so perhaps the situation changes when we pay them for advertising

Small bits of news are not that interesting for news sites... Maybe the heading of the newspost is a bit 'self contious' ; It better should read 'DNX408 Shipping NOW'
Nothing to do with paying, it has more to do with the importance of the news. That a car would be able to win is lesser news that that's shipping. Besides that: who cares that a car could have win, but it didnot win...

The news sites can print "DNX408 shipping now" if they want . Anyway its not a big deal, they do what they think entertains readers.

Do the suspension arms mount like current buggies(front and rear blocks) or do they mount on there own suspension arm block, like the older RC10 Series?
Thanks!!

Cheers!
