Neumann & DEX210v2 Crowned 2014 Euro Champions


Jörn Neumann – 2014 EFRA European Champion – 2WD Electric Buggy

Team Durango racing star, Jörn Neumann, has raced to an overall first place finish at the 2014 2WD Off-Road European Championships with the DEX210v2.

Jörn was able to secure three TQ round wins during the five round qualifying session, putting him second on the grid in the prestigious ‘A’ Main final. After a fierce battle with the fastest drivers in Europe, including long-time rival Lee Martin, Jörn raced to a leg two and three win with his DEX210v2, putting the defending ace straight back on the top spot as 2014 2WD European Champion.


The Trelleborg track surface was indoor dirt, creating a racing environment that was best suited for rear motor configuration 2WD cars. Neumann was thrilled to take his virtually box stock DEX210v2 to victory on the slippery dirt surface, showing that the DEX210v2 is the most versatile 2WD Electric Buggy package commercially available to the racing community.

Notice we stated ‘virtually box stock’.

So we now can share some very exciting preview news.

Team Durango are excited to announce a new additional layer of design philosophy, harking back to Gerd Strenge’s bespoke engineered craftsmanship, which will result in a supplementary range of option parts to take your car to a new level of optimisation.

To focus your Team Durango vehicle on a specific track application, our new range of option parts will allow you to permanently transform your race machine to gain ‘on point’ performance. These selected option parts require some basic modelling skills, with minor modifications needed to your stock kit car. Gerd created the early Team Durango cars in this way, often hand-finishing items for a super-bespoke fit and finish.

Jörn was able to use an early version of just one new option part, to create a DEX210v2 that was completely focused for winning on the difficult low-grip dirt track. Jörn has won this ultra-competitive race using our new targeted performance rear bulkhead, designed for the DEX210v2 in rear motor configuration.


Now we have proven our early concept, stay tuned as we prepare this new part for public release, allowing you the opportunity to turn your Team Durango vehicle into an even more focused race-winning machine.

More ‘on point’ optimisation to follow.

Lutz Triple Win – DNX8 – DEX408v2 – DEX210v2


Win, Win, Win – Ryan Lutz Triple First

1/8 Nitro Buggy – 1st – Ryan Lutz – DNX8 Prototype

1/8 E-Buggy – 1st – Ryan Lutz – DEX408v2

1/10 2WD Buggy – 1st – Ryan Lutz – DEX210v2

Team Durango Pro racing ace, Ryan Lutz, has finished the Hobbico Keystone Classic at Mushroom Bowl with three first place finishes for Team Durango!

Ryan was excited to be attending the first installment of this multi-class off-road event, which would allow him another opportunity to continue testing his DNX8 prototype Nitro Buggy. With the crowds already excited to get the chance to watch the ROAR National podium finisher in action, Ryan set about plundering the spoils across the three Buggy classes raced at the event.

With young off-road RC fans clambering to grab signed t-shirts and pit boards, Ryan was able to spend time away from the track with Team Durango fans, making the Hobbico Keystone Classic a true family affair.

Taking the triple podium win at this event is a great result for Ryan, especially as he continues to build his track experience with the upcoming Team Durango nitro platform.

We send our congratulations to Ryan for another awesome performance, and send our thanks to Hobbico for hosting such a friendly and welcoming off-road race meeting.
