1/8th scale rallycross diff's in an electric 1/10th buggy

Glad I kept all my diff oils when I sold my Losi 8ight earlier this year.


Only problem I can see is weight, oil filed diffs are heavy and very time consuming to change at the meeting!


but looks good though!!

560 us dollars. yikes. i think the only thing this car has going for itself are the sealed diffs. plus the stories of the associated factory drivers with the prototypes isn't going help sell this car.

..and the looks, the concept of chassis layout, the quality( looks like it anyway). Just to be different. Durango boys, Sign me up and send me one right now so I can show it off in the Nordic championship in June!!!

EUR 400.-?! That's approx 180.- less than I expected, way cheaper than a TRF501X here in Germany. If it was not overkill for the stock motors I use and need saddle packs, I'd say I'll definately get one, but the way it is, I've got to consider things carefully. I'll need a small ESC, saddle lipos, another servo...and some towels to wipe that drool away! :drool:

the prototype had an aluminium chassis, the car on the shelf will have a plastic or carbon chassis.

Won't that affect the performance? I other words, will the Durango meet the abilities the prototype had?

Lowie, were are you getting the plastic or carbon chassis from i haven't heard anything about this :confused: and this is a quote from durango's website.
Extra thick front & rear carbon-fibre shock absorber towers
Aluminium Chassis with perfect weight distribution
Quick release battery mount (Sub-C/LiPo)
Easy access metal gear differentials
Quick release spur-gear
Adjustable vented slipper clutch
Rubber shock & driveshaft boots
Race winning handling and speed!

This isn't correct - the car you see is the car you get.

400eur = 345.961 GBP

About what I expected really.
Wasn't going to be cheap with the quality. :)

burgie

worryingly, that's about 50.00 cheaper than an X11-08.

Received this in my mail just now:

Dear Friend of Team Durango,
We have just sent details of prices and availability for the DEX410 to the press. Please look out for them on your favourite R/C news website!

Agh, press releases should not use a format like .docx!

May be of some use not actually tried them yet:-


Docx2Doc is a web service which offers free conversion of docx documents to doc format. http://www.docx2doc.com/
Zamzar is another service which offers document conversions. The advantage of Zamzar is its capability to convert not only office documents, but also images, music, archives and videos as well. http://zamzar.com/

<SUP>NEW!</SUP> Thanks to Michael for sharing this resource. TDS Converter offers free conversion of docx to doc. http://converter.tds.lv/

Cheers mate, I've converted it now - it's strange but I'm certain one line of text copied and pasted from a normal .doc file doesn't add up to 15,000 characters. But from .docX it does! Grrrreat! haha.

So I once I found a reader, I had to copy and paste into notpad to remove all the hidden formatting - and 15000 invisible characters - and then reformat it for the press release.. boooo!


Anyway, 450ukp - more than expected but that's the way of the economy right now. Anyone who complains (and once you SEE the car, you really can't) can wait for the 'R' version which is inline with other 4wd buggies in terms of price and spec.

good on you jimmy - not converted from docx before so not aware of the hidden characters issue...job done though so nice one (from me and everyone waiting to hear about the durango)

Won't complain Jimmy, but all I'd say is for that price it needs to perform as well as it looks! Signs look good though, and it's a beautiful piece of kit!

Not that I'll be partaking, doubt the futaba receiver will go in there!
