Michal Orlowski Takes Double Team Durango Win In Warsaw – Polish Star Dominates


Team Durango continue to enjoy massive success with both the DEX210 and DEX410V3 racing platforms. Our Polish team are once again up to their ‘old tricks’ with a performance at the recent Mazovia Championships that confirms their strangle hold on this prestigious series. Round 3 of the series was held in the village of Nowa Wies near Warsaw, and was as close to a perfect performance for double winner Michal Orlowski as you can get.

Michal piloted his DEX210 to an overall first position, with his 2WD TQ being very secure as he dominated the day from start to finish. Michal led his Team Durango team mates through a near perfect series of qualifying rounds, that also saw Bartek Zambrzycki qualify second for the A main and finish in the winners circle with a third overall. Pawel Staszewski qualified third in the A final to complete the Team Durango domination of 2WD.


Orlowski pushes his DEX210 to a convincing victory in 2WD modified

Michal and Bartek were not content with just ruling the finishing table in 2WD with their DEX210’s so they set about driving their DEX410V3’s to a first and second podium finish in 4WD as well. Michal drove his DEX410V3 to a solid win at the largest indoor off-road race in Poland. Also not daunted by the scale of this event, Bartek found his performance was his strongest to date with a second in 4WD added to his previous podium position in 2WD.

The final results tables looked like this:


1st Michal Orlowski – Team Durango DEX210

2nd Mateusz Ogonowski

3rd Bartek Zambrzycki – Team Durango DEX210


1st Michal Orlowski – Team Durango DEX410V3

2nd Bartek Zambrzycki – Team Durango DEX410V3

Ben Cosgrove Wins At West Bridgeford – DEX410V3 Takes Top Spots

Filed under: News,Team Driver,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Stuart @ 10:51 am


Team Durango racing star Ben Cosgrove was busy doing what he does best last weekend at West Bridgeford indoor off-road club in the UK. Ben has seen recent success with both the DEX210 and DEX410V3 vehicles and was booked in to race both classes at this busy weekend meeting. With a field of local talent and a strong contingent from other manufacturers off-road teams, Ben was in for a battle as he prepared to build on his recently proven fast paced 2WD and 4WD performances.

Ben was set to race 2WD first in heat 6, with 4WD to closely follow in heat 8. Ben is not a driver who is fazed by pressure, so the stage was set for another action packed Team Durango day.


The West Bridgeford track is a mixed flavour surface - Challenging and very fast

2WD’s first round of qualifying saw Ben return with a 2nd place position that put him just 3 seconds off the top time. Round two Ben had an unfortunate meeting with a track side marker to see him return with a third place and leave him four seconds off the pace. Ben battled through a tough third round that placed him sixth. His final round of qualifying was halted by his decision to change tyres during the interval, which he found had a negative effect on his cars handling. Ben was happy to place second on the grid for the A final and was really excited about how hard he had been able to push his DEX210 during the tough areas of the multi-surface West Bridgeford track.

The 2WD A final saw Ben attempt to pass pole positioned Lloyd Storey on the first corner. He got snagged on the inside line and had to be marshaled back onto his wheels as the racing pack flew by. Ben was running in last place after this brave attempt at an early pass. Not deterred at all by this collision, Ben stormed back through the A final field and finished a very respectable fourth overall. His DEX210 had proven to be extremely forgiving during the intense battle for the 2WD win.

Ben was also running his DEX410V3 buggy and was making a very early dent in the 4WD qualifying table. He TQ’d his first round and ‘ramped’ up the pace to also TQ his second and third round of qualifying. The DEX410V3 was performing very well and Ben reported that he found the car very easy to drive quickly in all areas of the track. To conclude his great performance in 4WD Ben placed his DEX410V3 in pole position after also TQ’ing his final round of qualifying. Ben dominated his 4WD A final with an awesome performance that included increasing the impact of his buzzer-to-buzzer by lapping the entire field!

The DEX410V3 was also placed second in the A final in the hands of  Daniel Austin, making it a very convincing first and second for Team Durango.

Ben reported that both cars felt safe to drive and fast enough to compete with every other vehicle in attendance. Ben once again showed that not only is he enjoying his off-road drive for Team Durango, but the DEX210 and DEX410V3 continue to add to their already race proven pedigree.

We congratulate Ben on another pleasing set of results and look forward to following his progress during the coming seasons 10th scale race action.

Aluminium Servo Arms – Steering Strength And Durability

Filed under: News,Uncategorized — Tags: , — Stuart @ 12:18 pm


Steering and throttle. The two primary actions of your Team Durango off-road racing vehicle. With the advancements in strength of steering servo units over the last decade, we can now experience fast and reliable steering control as we battle for that race win. Faster and stronger servo units will generally mean that the steering linkage assembly of your vehicle will be put under higher amounts of stress. Combine this with the usual rigors of off-road racing, and a super durable and impact resilient servo arm is a must.

Our high quality aluminium servo arms are precision manufactured to give you confidence every time you apply steering input. Etched with our Team Durango livery for quality assurance, and also bearing the servo tooth size configuration, your steering will be perfectly balanced whatever the track conditions.

We provide several tooth size configurations that will fit many popular servo units. Why have a high quality powerful servo unless your servo arm is of the same high quality?

Fast By Design – Team Durango Aero-Technology


At Team Durango we pride ourselves on bringing you the very highest level of professional design. From our revered 8th scale vehicle styling, to our Race Ready RTR aggressive looks. Team Durango do not just make racing products, we design them.

As you would expect to find in any full-scale motor sport manufacturer, Team Durango have resident designers who spend hundreds of hours creating every curve and angle, every sweep and edge we produce. Whether they are sketching concepts for new 10th scale body shells or laying out digital graphics for decal sheets, our team stay focused on optimum performance and Team Durango’s unique look with every project.

Every body shell that we produce is subjected to rigorous testing from our team drivers. We refine, revise and improve every single inch of high quality polycarbonate. This continues until we are totally happy with the ability of our body shells to not just look cool, but also increase performance. Aerodynamically designed and digitally produced, every single body shell is distinctly Team Durango.


Design evolution - Team Durango styling is easy to spot

We enjoy the feedback we get from the loyal Team Durango racers all over the world. We always take any comments we get regarding the styling of our vehicles straight to the design table. Although we can never promise that we will create every request we get, if only we could. The one thing we can promise is that all the feedback we receive, every race result we achieve, every driver who creates a new painted colour scheme, it all directly influences Team Durango’s look.


Paper and pencil - Where it all begins

This means that we consider you all part of the design team. We are so excited to see how each drivers race livery looks on the body shells we design. We are also extremely interested by the enhancements in race performance that users experience. Over the years we have smoothed cab shapes, increased the space under side-pods, cut new fins and air vents to optimise air flow and we still have so many ideas. We are constantly developing our styling to provide you all with the best performance a polycarbonate body shell can offer.


DEX410V3 Body set - Complete with custom decals and window masks

A Team Durango vehicle is very easy to spot in the pits, and even during the heat of track competition. We style our body shells with an aggressive edge. The importance of aerodynamic design is prominent in every sheet of polycarbonate we shape. With increased airflow for the cooling of internal electrical components, our body shells increase air organisation and promote maximum down force throughout your racing experience. We chop the roof lines of our cabs low, we vent our side-pods with forwards facing slots, we pay very close attention to the fit of the body shell against the chassis to minimise dirt and water ingress.


Fins on our cab lines and high airflow side pods - Fast and cool

Every body shell we create goes through the same design and development process that provide the results, both on the track and on your pit table. Team Durango design look cool, perform well and will always make you stand out from the crowd.

Team Durango Spares – Be Prepared This Coming Season

No matter what scale or class of competitive motor sport you research, the one common element that you will find is of optimum importance is spare parts. From state-of- the-art Formula 1 to Club Man grass track racing, every pit crew will agree that a good stock of spare parts will always make your racing more consistent. The rigours of high speed competition will always produce wear and tear on even the most refined car parts. 10th scale off-road is no exception to this rule. Even with the high quality precision engineered materials used by Team Durango, it is inevitable that items will need replacing over time. Simply put, the more you race, the more you need to maintain your racing car.

Not only will carrying a wide range of spares help with track side maintenance, but it will also encourage you to try new set-up configurations such as changing shock oils and altering geometry settings. It will open up a world of flexible handling options that will give you more confidence when racing your Team Durango vehicle to win.

With the 2013 season soon upon us, we thought it would be the perfect time to share with you some of the Team Durango spares and vehicle options that will allow you to visit your next race meeting prepared like a professional.


DEX210 65mm Drive Shafts

Drive shafts are an area of any vehicle that must endure an enormous amount of rotational stress. A drive shaft failure will most definitely bring your day to a premature finish. Carry a spare set of these 65mm drive shafts for your DEX210 buggy.

Bumper and skid plate set for the DEX410V3

Team Durango offer a wide selection of precision manufactured ball-bearings. Carry these inexpensive but critical spares to allow for quick pit table changes.

Filed under: News,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — Stuart @ 4:41 pm


The DEX410V3 has once again shown that it is among the greatest 10th scale 4WD platforms ever created with a resounding dominance at the recent EIR2013 Championship in Charleroi, Belgium. Team Durango were extremely happy to see our team drivers come away with five of the top ten finishing positions in 4WD.

David Poulter led his team mates to a collection of great results by finishing second overall in the hotly contested 4WD class. No other attending manufacturer was able to secure as many top ten finishes as Team Durango. With our team racers reporting that the track was very technical in some areas, this further proves the ability of the DEX410V3 to shine under diverse conditions. Antoine Rossetti reported that there were a high number of collisions due to the tight and technical track layout. Team Durango racers battled a field of International off-road stars to stamp their mark well and truly on the A main final.
