Some work done in the Mancave Last night. Radio Box went on a diet. It ain't perfect but you get the idea.
Working on new Lipo mount for side guard.

while in the mancave, did you test the new fuel tanks for leaks? It makes the pitman's job a bit easier.


looks good, i can see you'll be quick at the barn.

Default Did I buy the wrong buggy?

Hey guys,
I just finished putting together my cobra S811 2.0.
A few things I did not like. Then I started looking at the DNX408 and some of the design features look amazing.

How do the 2 compare for racing?

Yeh he was running top 4 in the truggy final as well and catching them but his throttle servo died and so did his race after that

Just goes to show that even after all the bagging people give Durango they can and will do good in the right hands

Default PNB 2013

Ryan Lutz was awesome at PNB. He had some bad luck in the first E-buggy heat but that was due to being hacked and lapped traffic getting into his way. He was as far back as 17th I believe but stormed back to 4th in that heat. That's some fast driving
I finished 8th in Novice. I should have used a smaller pin tire but decided to stay with the Sweep Exagon tire which I have been using the entire time. Here is a pic of my DNX and some Ryan Lutz pics. He dominated the Pro Buggy Amain!

There is nothing wrong with that buggy. Can it be improved or some things changed to make it better sure. But not many tracks will get rougher to drive on than PNB. I didn't have the "dialed in setup" and did not use a small pin tire in the main but I am still very happy with the DNX!

I believe it is a jconcepts finisher body for the mbx6...

But remember that is on the proto 408, not the dnx408

I'll be painting up a Finisher (for Losi) for my DNX this weekend. i'll post pics.

I believe Gomer was running the same body on his buggies. Some pics of his bodies from his sale thread.
