Team Durango win big at JConcepts Clash 2011

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 5:18 pm

title The annual JConcepts CLASH in Florida, USA, took place this past weekend and Team Durango drivers Jorn Neumann and Hupo Honigl took their fleet of Team Durango off-road vehicles to do battle. track Practice day went well for the guys – the clay track was dry and grooving up quickly and the cars were all going well. Things took a turn for the worse – much worse – at the start of qualifying, as heavy rain started to really affect things.

Drivers were trying all sorts of tricks to get extra traction in the slippery conditions and the Team Durango pair weren’t quite up to speed on some of the ‘tricks’ the locals had to cope with the conditions.  Still – the guys had Team Durango originator, Gerd Strenge, on hand to help. clashwinners Qualifying went well with TQ’s in 1/8th electric buggy with the DEX408, 4WD modified buggy with the DEX410 and 4WD short course with the DESC410R.  The guys also placed 3rd (Hupo) and 5th (Jorn) on the grid for the 2WD main with the new DEX210.

Bad tyre choices took a toll on the guys in 2WD and 4WD buggy – Both guys dropping down the order in 2WD after some solid qualifying – but bouncing back in 4WD with Jorn taking the win and Hupo backing up the result in third place.  4WD SC saw Hupo take the win. 8-seconds ahead of former world champion Kinwald. 4wd-winner sc-winner The new DEX408 production car was being run for the first time – and whilst Ryan Lutz has tested the pre-production car, neither Jorn or Hupo had run the new car until the Clash 2011.  Taking TQ and second on the grid, the guys sailed round in starting order with Jorn taking the win ahead of team-mate Hupo for an impressive DEX408 1-2 victory.  The DEX408 is coming in January and is sure to raise the level of exposure the 1/8th electric off-road class gets.
