Roque Talks DEX8 – Get The Team Scoop Here

Team Durango Portugal racer and long-time Team Durango ambassador, Nuno Roque, took some time out of his busy schedule to sit down and speak with us about the all-new DEX8.

Nuno has a formidable reputation on the track, but also has a strong following of European fans who value his warm attitude to sharing information and his approachable nature.

Nuno is very excited to be racing the DEX8 1/8 4WD Electric Buggy. This is what he had to say when asked some interesting questions about the newly-launched race machine from Team Durango.

Nuno Roque – DEX8 Interview

Team Durango – What are you most excited about with the launch of the new Team Durango 1/8 scale vehicles?

Nuno – I am truly confident that they are super-competitive for all racers. They are packed with new innovative features, saving you time and making you faster.

 

Team Durango – What is your favourite feature of the new cars and why?

Nuno – The feature that I like most is the Diff removals….truly quick and easy…less time in pits, and more time on track.

 

Team Durango – Explain how you will benefit from the cars new design whilst racing in the Portuguese off-road scene?

Nuno –  In Portugal, our tracks are a bit rough so the new layout will help to get a more stable car….The DEX8 is really very easy to drive, and have lots of setup possibilities that will provide consistent performance.

roque-dex8

Nuno is happy to be already seeing the benefits of his DEX8 on the track

Team Durango – What do you think racers will be surprised about when building the DEX8 Buggy for the first time?

Nuno –  Of course, the pre-assembled parts…..really quick to build a new kit and especially the quality of the materials. I was very surprised when I opened DEX8 box…really made me smile J

 

Team Durango – Explain how the design can make racers faster when they are servicing the car at race meetings?

Nuno –  The best thing for speed with my DEX8 is the fast Diffs removal……really really quick and easy, set-up changes can be made in a few minutes. This kind of improvement will allow quicker setup changes and more time running on the track; so I’m perfectly confident that this easy-to-access feature will improve other racers speed.

 

Team Durango – Explain the benefit of having pre-assembled parts in each DEX8 kit?

Nuno –  It´s very easy to build a new kit and it will reduce the risk of assembly mistakes of crucial parts. Everything fits extremely well and you can spend much less time building and more time running.

 11155008_946231458755677_6599009453374060286_o

Nuno has been very happy with how the DEX8 makes easy work of rough dirt track surfaces

Team Durango – Do you like the new Body Shell design for the DEX8? How does it look with your custom paint scheme?

Nuno – I like the fact that new DEX8 has a cab forward design. I think my custom paint fits very well on this new Body Shell, and it gives a really awesome look when you see the car running on track. Typical Team Durango stylish design for these new cars.

 

Team Durango –  What is the benefit of having multiple Battery positions? Explain why this will be useful for you please?

Nuno – It’s perfect because you can adjust battery tray easily. This will allow you to create the most balanced kit possible (and it will be noticed very much when the car is on track).

 

Team Durango –  The Patent Pending Sliding Gear Mesh feature. Explain the benefits to you. Both at the track and when you are maintaining your DEX8?

Nuno –  The Patent Pending Sliding Gear Mesh feature is awesome! It allows you to get a correct mesh easily of the Pinion and Spur. It allows you to maintain your vehicle weight balance as you are not moving heavy parts around when you alter your Gear mesh. For maintenance, this is perfect because you can remove the centre Diff, and your previous Gear meshing would be ‘memorised’ What a great feature.

 easy_diff_access_low_weight_internals

Every driver we have spoken with, including Nuno, agree that the fast and easy Diff access will save lots of time and hassle

 Team Durango – What race are you most looking forward to with your new DEX8?

Nuno –  I will race almost all races in Portugal for 1/8 Electric Buggy (although in Portugal, this class is just developing a stronger following right now)

Team Durango – Describe the new Team Durango 1/8 scale vehicles in three words?

Nuno –  Competitive, Easy and Fast.

img_1606

Novotny Pilots DNX8 Straight to the Podium

With the recently contested  second round of the Horni Jeleni 1/8 Nitro Series only being Kaja Novotny’s sixth race driving a Nitro vehicle, the young Czech Team Durango star was excited to pilot the DNX8 to a second place podium finish.

Kaja has recently decided to attempt to transfer his well-documented winning ways, from Team Durango electric race platforms, to the highly-competitive Nitro Buggy class of racing.

This was also just the second time Kaja has driven the all-new DNX8 1/8 4WD Nitro Buggy during full race conditions, proving he seems perfectly at home, no matter what style of racing he challenges with Team Durango vehicles.

Second time on the track = Podium for the DNX8 

Launching his DNX8 from third place on the grid in the ‘A’ Main final, Kaja proved the durability and consistent handling of the new race machine. Kaja charged to his first podium place in a race class he has virtually no experience with during his short but colourful career.

We send our congratulations to Kaja and sincere thanks to Karel, his father, for being such a great inspiration to us all.
