China debut win for DEX408

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 4:40 pm

For the 4th running of the annual endurance race in China, organised by Mr. Eugene Cheng, the 2011 event marked the second year in a roll where the 1/8 EP buggy class was run. Due to more electric 8th offerings from the RC industry, the race generated great interest for the public and also acted as a testing ground for future race organisers on the possibilities for running 1/8 ep class.

With the recent advance on electrics, 1/8 EP no longer was the class of make or break, judging from the finishing rate, most of the current crop of ESC and motors can handle the punishment with ease.

As an endurance race, we were running as a team of two and a driver change is a must at the half hour mark. Teaming up with Nelson, this was also the maiden run for the production spec DEX408 in China, and what a race it was!


When we first put the car on the ground, we knew we have a winner with us. The DEX-408 was fast, it feels light and the steering is simply amazing! With Nelson handling the first half hour – our aim are simple: drive smooth and hang on, not doing anything stupid which result in pit work, and Nelson did just that.

When the time came for a driver change, we were safely in 2nd position. With the remaining half hour, all I have to do was closing the gap to the leader and eventually with around 6-8 minutes to go, I make the pass and we never looked back! Taking a win is always sweet, but taking a win with a brand new car taste even better!


The DEX408 eletric 1/8th buggy will be in stock at your local Team Durango retailer very soon!
