Jason Ametrine Pilots DEX408v2 To Podium

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , — Stuart @ 8:21 am

jason-ndor-3rd-2014-td

Team Durango UK team driver Jason Ametrine has recently returned from the first round of the NDOR Summer Series in Derbyshire UK, having taken third overall with his DEX408v2.

Jason battled a filed of the fastest 1/8 racers the region has to offer, taking his DEX408v2 straight to the podium on the demanding Astroturf track surface. Jason was to qualify pole in the ‘A’ main final, with some difficult technical issues putting him back in the pits during his lead of the final. Jason showed his tenacity by quickly working on his car, losing several laps on his competitors, and then flying through the back markers to take third spot with a big smile.

Jason has reported that his DEX408v2 was a dream to drive on the rough and bumpy Astro track, and he feels that the coming summer months will allow him to continue to develop several specialist Astroturf set-ups to share with you all.

Stay tuned for more racing and technical tips from Jason very soon.

We send our congratulations to Jason for a great opening performance to his summer 2014 campaign.

DEX410 Rear Cone Washer Mod – Team Tech Tip

ttt-dex410v4-cone-washer-mod

Team Durango UK team driver Jason Ametrine returns with another really helpful Team Tech Tip video. This time Jason shares an exclusive team modification that allows you to widen the width of your rear track on the DEX410v4.

During team testing, we found that when the track surface lacks grip, or suddenly becomes slick after rain, the wider rear track width will provide your DEX410v4 with even more traction. This fast and easy modification will also allowing you to push the car during mid-corners, due to the increase in rear-end width. This mod can be performed on any DEX410 Buggy, and Jason shows you how quick and easy this useful tuning option can be performed.

Watch out for the genuine Team Durango parts that Jason uses, and take note of the simple steps in this process. This Team Tech Tip means that you can switch rear track width in a few moments, staying on top of the changing racing conditions as you battle for the win.
