Christmas Race (Dammartin-En-Goële, near Paris)

Filed under: News — Team Durango UK @ 11:15 am

French Team Durango racer Antoine Rossetti sent us this short report from last weekend’s Christmas Race near Paris:

The track:

It was small, without a single straight line! The surface was low traction, with carpet on the jumps only. I found this track very difficult to drive on!

I started with my standard carpet setup for my DEX210 and during the day, I only changed:
– Front and rear oil (reduced weight by about 100)
– Stiffer rear springs
– Shocks positions on the rear

My DEX210 was good but I couldn’t get quite enough steering for my driving style, so after three qualification runs I qualified in sixth position.

The finals were not good for me and I could only finish in eighth position.

4WD :
As with the 2WD class, I started to drive my DEX410v3 with my standard carpet setup, except that I put 10000 oil in my rear diff (on the advice of Joern Neumann)
My DEX410v3 was just incredible! I modified nothing else for the rest of the day.

I TQd all three qualifying rounds and in the finals I won the first leg by one lap; I finished third in the second final and fourth in the third and final race. At the end of the day I won the 4WD class with my DEX410v3, which made me very happy because last year I was second at this race!

Now, I’ll prepare for 2013 where I will race in the French Championship, the Euros and Worlds Championships.

And I’d like to wish all Team Durango racers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
