Team Durango Australia have continued their off-road campaign in the Southern hemisphere with a great win from Ben Hoare during the Latrobe Cup, which is part of the regions popular Interclub Series.

Ben took the top spot in the Stadium Truck class with his DEST210R and also added a very pleasing second overall in 2WD Modified Buggy with his DEX210.

The North West Remote Control Car Club hosted the event on a track surface that is usually used exclusively for 1/8 scale competition, with the regions fastest drivers battling for podium honours in both 1/10 and 1/8 electric classes.

We send our congratulations to Ben for a great result with his DEST210R.

Jarred King – Team Durango Australia Double

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , , — Stuart @ 10:46 am


New Team Durango Australia signing Jarred King has returned from the Sydney JConcepts Clash with a double first place finish, and an overall TQ in 4WD for his brand new DEX410v4.

Jarred was extremely happy to take the double winners crown at his first major race meeting since joining our team driver roster last month. The 100 strong field of racers battled hard on a dry and dusty off-road track near Castle Hill in Eastern Australia, as the regions fastest drivers raced for supremacy.

Jarred piloted his DEX210 Buggy to a convincing victory in 2WD, despite losing a tyre during the ‘A’ main finals after clipping a track pipe in the final laps of his victorious performance.

Jarred then went on to prove the awesome performance of his new DEX410v4 Buggy, by setting a TQ pace in 4WD on the loose dirt track. Jarred flew home to take first spot and reported that the DEX410v4 was perfectly balanced, with its new Two-Way Slipper Clutch system bringing added handling capabilities on the dusty surface.


Jarred King pushes his DEX410v4 to a TQ and overall first in Sydney last weekend

Jarred is keen to highlight that the DEX410v4 is very easy to drive fast straight from the kit box, with consistent lap times being made easier by such refinements as the new UJ Centre Drive Shafts.

We send our congratulations to Jarred for a great result, and we welcome him to the team for the 2014 racing season.

Leo Lorenzen – Team Durango Super Fan Speaks Out


We recently came into contact with a young man who caused us to take a rather sharp breath when we saw his amazing collection of Team Durango vehicles. Upon deeper investigation we became further aware of Leo Lorenzen and his total dedication to everything Team Durango. Leo has been involved with RC off-road racing for some years and has recently been working hard to develop his track skills at club level in Australia.

Leo is the very proud owner of a truly epic collection of Team Durango rides. Each car has been hand built by Leo, and he has invested in a ‘fleet style’ paint livery to make his collection look really professional. Leo has taken his love for our brand to an even higher level by creating and running his very own Team Durango fan website! He works tirelessly to promote the products and high profile race results that we create.


Heavy weight Team Durango fleet - Leo has already built a very impressive collection

Now you may agree that upon discovering Leo Lorenzen and his passion for what we do, it seems obvious that we share his dedication with the world of Team Durango racers and fans? We are so impressed with how Leo represents Team Durango that we are proud to announce that he will be working closer with our team over the upcoming 2013 racing season. This will include Leo sharing his range of RC skills with you all through a collection of very exciting guest blog articles.

It is with the greatest pleasure that we introduce to you all the words of a man who is clearly ‘Serious About Racing’, join us in welcoming Mr Leo Lorenzen to Team Durango’s world-wide network of contributors.

Leo Lorenzen – How It All Began…..

I first got involved in RC racing close to 3 years ago. The DNX408 was my first race orientated vehicle, and the cause of me becoming a fan of Team Durango’s vehicles. Since starting racing my fleet of vehicles has slowly increased to cover nearly all of Team Durango’s offered platforms.

The DNX408’s sleek body shape, modular design and solid looking construction appealed to me when picking my first race vehicle, and it is not a choice I have regretted. The build of the vehicle was simple with Team Durango’s detailed full colour manual. Many parts are shown in 1:1 scale making it easy to identify the correct item, allowing a beginner to complete the assembly without any issues. Team Durango offers many additional guides to assist with different parts of the build on their website:


Leo Lorenzen - DNX408

Being a beginner racer, my DNX408 experienced many crashes and tumbles during the learning process. It held up well to the punishment. The solid construction meant few repairs were needed and its modular design allowed for quick servicing. As my driving improved I was able invest in some of the many option parts offered for the DNX408, the v2 radio box for easier battery swaps, aluminium axles for faster acceleration, aluminium throttle linkages for weight savings and many other pieces that have been released as Team Durango continuously work to improve their vehicles.

The DNX408’s design allows for quick and easy swaps of many parts. The easily accessible front and rear diff cases allow for quick removal, making experimenting or tuning with diff oils simple. The low center of gravity radio tray has been designed for easy removal of electronics. A few screws and you can remove/replace the entire unit, a handy feature when it comes time for cleaning. The DNX408’s 15mm big bore shocks can be set-up to suit any track, with many option springs offered. Team Durango’s other 8th scale vehicles, the DEX408 and DNX408T share many of the same features as the DNX408.


Leo is totally focused on promoting Team Durango

Similar to the Team Durango’s 8th scale range, the ‘210’ series of vehicles, the DEX210, DEST210 and DESC210, share many of the same features and parts. All three vehicles have a huge amount of tuning options straight out of the box. Front caster and rear toe are adjustable with an insert system which is clearly explained on Team Durango’s website .

They all support both rear and mid motor configurations, allowing the user to change the vehicles to suit any surface. Team Durango have offered a large range of springs for suspension tuning, these springs also being used by Team Durango’s 4wd 10th scale range.
