DEX408v2 Sets Track Record – TQ & Win


Team Durango off-road star Kaja Novotny has piloted his DEX408v2 to a record breaking win and TQ at the second round of the KS Challenge in Terezin, Czech Republic.

Kaja posted the fastest lap time ever achieved on this bumpy multi-surface venue, blasting his DEX408v2 to an overall first and TQ. Taking all three qualifying rounds was enough to put Kaja at the front of the experienced pack of racers in the ‘A’ Main final, leaving him plenty of room to get the throttle pinned and go for the record.

The DEX408v2 and Kaja went on to also win all three final legs, securing a clean sweep and new venue record for Team Durango.

We send our sincere thanks and congratulations to Kaja and his father Karel.

Novotny Pilots DEX408v2 To National Podium


Team Durango Czech racing star, Kaja Novotny, has raced to an overall second place at the second round of the Czech 1/8 Buggy National, piloting his DEX408v2 against the fastest racers the country has to offer.

Kaja was able to push his Team Durango 1/8 Electric Buggy into a direct battle with senior racers at the event, as he set his sights on securing a podium finish in the ‘A’ main finals, in Dolni Bukovsko last weekend.

The dry and bumpy track had developed a grooved racing line from heavy use by the nitro Buggy racers during the event. This gave Kaja the opportunity to utilise the advanced set-up options that are possible with the DEX408v2, making easier work of the challenging surface conditions.

We send our congratulations to Kaja and his father Karel for another great performance.

Lutz Takes Double ROAR Podium

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Prototype testing,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , — Stuart @ 8:27 am


Double Podium – Team Durango – ROAR Nats 2014

2014 ROAR National Nitro Buggy – Ryan Lutz – 3rd overall – DNX8 Prototype

2014 ROAR Nationals Nitro Truggy – Ryan Lutz – 3rd overall – DNX408T

US Team Durango super-racer Ryan Lutz has concluded an action-packed weekend of high profile nitro racing with a double third overall at the 2014 ROAR National in Austin, Texas.

Ryan was very happy to convert his fast paced day one performance, in timed practice, to a podium spot for the DNX8 prototype 1/8 Nitro Buggy, against arguably the fastest racers the class has to offer.

With Ryan actively testing the upcoming Team Durango platform over the last few months, with a solid performance in the UK at the Neo race, the US Pro driver was happy to test the pace of his prototype against a star-studded field.


With the Texas heat and humidity giving the racers more than the dusty track to contend with, Ryan was able to fly to an overall third place podium finish in the increasingly competitive 1/8 Nitro Truggy class. Ryan piloted his DNX408T through the field, stating that his Truggy felt ‘safe and easy to drive’ throughout the competition.


We send our sincere congratulations  and thanks to Ryan for a great performance. The race-pace testing of the DNX8 prototype continues to keep us focused on creating an awesome new product.

We also send thanks and admiration to Team Durango Pro racer Travis Amezcua, who not only pitted for Ryan during the ROAR Nats event, but as Ryan stated during press interviews, was fundamental in helping Ryan stay sharp and focused during the hectic three day race schedule.

Thanks must go to our friends at REDRC for their wonderful event coverage and photographs.

DETC410 Takes BRCA Podium With Elliott Harper


Team Durango Touring Car ace, Elliott Harper, has returned from the third round of the BRCA National Touring Car Series with a third place podium finish with his DETC410.

Elliott attended this race meeting, hosted by Stafford Model Car Club, to once again battle it out with some of the UK’s fastest 1/10 Electric Touring Car drivers. The DETC410 was straight on the pace, with some impressive lap times falling to the Team Durango star as he settled into his usual consistent rhythm.

Elliott was very happy to storm to third overall from his sixth place ‘A’ main grid position in the finals, posting the fastest lap of the day with his DETC410 on his way to the podium.

Elliott was joined in the ‘A’ main final by Team Durango racer Ben Cosgrove, who also found good pace in the difficult conditions with his DETC410.

We send our congratulations to Elliott and Ben for another great performance.

Novotny Win & TQ – DEX408v2


The Off-Road Party Race Series, contested in the Czech Republic, was concluded last weekend. Team Durango racing star Kaja Novotny flew to another overall win and TQ with his DEX408v2.

Kaja has already shown excellent race pace at this series, taking several double podium places in 1/8 E Buggy and 1/10 4WD Buggy over recent weeks. He was keen to finish the series in style, battling in his two chosen classes on the rough dirt track, which many racers have commented is more suited to 1/8 Nitro Rally X than the electric classes raced at the series.

Kaja was really happy to take the overall win with his Team Durango DEX408v2, and he also added a third overall with his DEX410v4 to complete an impressive collection of podium places during the series.

We send our congratulations to Kaja and his father Karel.

DETC410 – Travis Amezcua Set-Up Released

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , , — Stuart @ 12:56 pm


Tune Your DETC410 Like Amezcua 

Team Durango racing Pro Travis Amezcua may be more known in recent time for his off-road 1/10 scale racing prowess, but he is no slouch when it comes to Touring Car racing. Travis has been away from smoother track driving since 2006 but found he was ready to re-visit his old haunts recently, just as Team Durango released the much anticipated DETC410 Touring Car kit.

Travis has always been known for his tenacious racing style and professional philosophy, so what better way for him to push his own ability levels even further than to go head-first into prestigious on-road meetings such as The Reedy Race and the globally recognised Snowbirds Tournament?

We are very excited that Travis has settled into his old rhythm quickly with the DETC410. He recently sent us an exclusive set-up sheet that helped him secure a top five ‘A’ main finish at the Reedy Race of Champions in the USA.


Now you can study the way our Pro team use the huge amounts of tunability designed into each Team Durango car, creating a tactical advantage on the most challenging of tracks.

Team Durango Pro racing star Ryan Lutz has returned from the AMS 5.0 off-road event in Alabama with a great podium finish for his DEX408v2.

Ryan was able to fly to a second place finish in 1/8 scale E Buggy, securing another high-profile podium place for the DEX408v2 during 2014. Ryan was also happy to secure a fourth place overall for the DNX8 Nitro prototype, as he continues his race-pace testing of the hotly anticipated new Buggy.

With the 1/8 scale racing season in full-swing over in the USA, we are really excited to see how Ryan can continue to develop his success with multiple Team Durango platforms.

Ryan was happy to report that his recently hectic racing schedule will be punctuated by a much-needed trip back home to see his family. This man puts some serious air miles in for his profession.

We send our sincere thanks to Ryan for another great performance with Team Durango products.
