Obviously it's a bit hard to tell, but my best guess is they are saying they don't know the exact date, may be saying they are expecting early August earlier in the paragraph though?

At the moment in the UK these have to be bought direct yeah, no shops are able to sell the actual kits, The Race place just spares? Assuming that's so how have people found the communication with Team Durango, do they reply to emails?

Thats it, use the europe link on the web page to register your pre order, then send them a email in a couple of days to confirm they have received it and they should get back to you and send you a price list!
Be good to have a few of us running these Dave!

I've been told today "late July/early August" so is presumably still on schedule!

Also found out delivery charge is on top of the kit price, hope it's only a uk delivery!

Wonder how many preorders they've had!

Also don't forget that the car is still being tested. So the dates may change.

Adam even found some little issues last week with the car that need sorting, so its this testing that will be making the car pefect when it comes out to us.

Still can't wit though.

Hmm, does make you think though, if parts are being redesigned how will it be out inside 4 weeks ish?

Must be horrible for companies to do push backs, all that cash arriving later than expected, more design costs than expected, ouch!!

I think the predicted release date is pretty much spot on, You'll be able to do all your testing on setups etc over the winter months ready for the new season. Fair doos, it is one seeexxxxy looking car (tissues please!)

Please Re-read Tel-Boys post first. No re-designing, just little changes. When car's go from pre-production prototypes to full production runs little issues can creep in.

There's no major changes to any parts of the car. Just to the processes that make the parts which will make the car the best out of the box car on the market.

Sorry Adam, had assumed a material change on the rod ends, which where I work would take an age!! All good if the cars still on for imminent release!?

Were you able to get much setup work done yesterday or did the changing conditions make it difficult to make meaningful changes?

The Durango went well at Southport.
I was let down by the weather in round 1, a slight sprinkling on the track just before our run left me 22nd with a clean run.

Round 2. I drove like a p###k

Round 3: I drove less like a p###k

Round 4: I drove like a p###k on first and last lap.

Every round the car was better than the previous and I finally felt at home with the car when I ran yellows in Round 4 and the Final. I was never happy on BB Greens (I hate the tyres, the give no feedback before they give up grip).

I really needed to run softer springs, but I don't have the option part spring set, so rather than run other manufacturers stuff on the car (Which never looks good) I stuck with what I had.

It's good that I seem to be heading towards the set-up that I have from the rest of the Durango guys without really looking at it.
They see this set-up as the 'Base-Line' which we will of course post on the website, which is being heavily worked on in the background to have some cool and funky features on it.

Overall:
Car: 9/10
Driver: Must do better

The balancing weight set is £36. Adam, are you planning on increasing the malady when you can, or to carry on working without ballast?

Also, for wheels I know your using HB but it sounded like some mods are required, are there any others which are a direct fit?? Just in case it takes a while for Durango ones to be available!

The B44 wheels fit directly. Adam just used the HB ones because he obviously had lots of them.
Its not a mod' to fit the HB wheels. You just need 4 of the spacers that fit inbetween the bearings on the D4 to space the hex's out on the front. Rear hex's fit straight on.
