Neumann & DEX210 win 2nd ‘Longfield Six Days’

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 4:10 pm
title

This past weekend saw the second round of the ‘Longfield Six Days’ championship, held in Langenfeld, Germany.  Jorn Neumann reports on his weekend:

It was open practice on Saturday and qualifying & finals on Sunday. The race is limited to 80 drivers per event. I used my Speed Passion powered DEX210 in  ‘mid motor 4 gear’ configuration. On Saturday I tried a lot with different shock setups, to get the best balance. In the end the harder shock setup was the better choice. My DEX210 was easy to drive and quick. After a couple runs I changed from a 6.5 motor to a Speed Passion 5.5 motor to get more power for some parts of the track. It was the right decision, because laptimes were a little bit faster.

For Sunday I changed nothing. In my first qualifier I had bad traffic and made a few mistakes because of it. I changed nothing but drove much better to TQ the 2nd and 3rd Rounds for the overall TQ. In the 1st final I touched with another driver on the end of the straight and retired early after a very hard crash and flying into the wall. I won the 2nd and 3rd leg to get the overall victory in front of Björn Prümper in 2nd and Alex Hardt in 3rd.

Miguel Matias and Team Durango cars dominate in Portugal

The second round of the Portugese 1/10th off road series was held over the weekend of 5th & 6th November 2011.  Miguel Matias driving a privately funded DEX410 lead a Team Durango 1-2-3 podium lockout in 4WD on his way to thw win.  Miguel put in the same form in 2WD as he had in 4WD, taking the TQ and win with his new DEX210 ahead of Nuno Roque with another DEX210.

This is another great showing for the powerful combination of the established DEX410 4WD platform and the superb performance of our new DEX210 2WD buggy.
