DETC410 – Go Faster, Beat The Rest

detc410-topdown001

 The DETC410 Touring Car has been in the hands of our dedicated fans and newly recruited racers for nearly six months. With RC forums happily buzzing away with the on-going community development of car set-ups and tuning options from all over the globe, there has never been a better time to get your hands on the car that EFRA podium finisher Elliott Harper helped develop.

Our team of engineers have continued to intensively race and develop the kit since we launched it to the world. With Elliott himself putting thousands of fast paced laps into both carpet and asphalt car set-ups, always striving to find the finest adjustment that will allow you all to benefit from his tireless dedication to the car.

We are really happy to read reports that racers of all ability levels are finding the DETC410 has improved their personal lap times. In some cases, racers have risen by a whole final position, with several drivers in the USA winning their first TC race meeting with the DETC410.

It is still early days for the car that was so eagerly anticipated by the Touring Car scene during nearly 12 months of design and development.  One thing that is clear already for us here at TDHQ, is that the DETC410 has been adopted by many new Touring Car racers, and experienced drivers alike, as their first choice when winning is the main goal.

Ben Cosgrove Dominates Silverstone Winter League Final Round – DEX410v3 Commands The Astro

Filed under: News,Team Driver,Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Stuart @ 11:23 am

Ben Cosgrove - DEX410v3 in 'Turbo Orange'

Team Durango team star Ben Cosgrove made brisk work of the final round of the popular Silverstone Model Car Club winter series last weekend at Moulton College in the UK. His DEX410v3 set the pace early during the days blistering action with TQ qualifying rounds before most racers had recovered from the early morning start. The Silverstone pit area was buzzing with excited talk regarding his missile-quick DEX410v3 as Ben put together lap after lap of beautifully driven off-road racing.

Ben experienced a few minor errors during his third round of qualifying but went on to return with an almost faultless A final to dominate and win from buzzer to buzzer. Ben commented that his DEX410v3 provided everything he needed on the super high grip indoor Astroturf Silverstone track. Spectators had commented that Ben seemed even faster as the day progressed with several laps that touched club record pace.

With the absence of the last round 2WD Team Durango winner Nathan Waters, who was busy dominating and winning over at the Worksop Masters, Ben focused his efforts on bringing the win home in 4WD for Team Durango.

Ben has recently returned to 10th off-road after a long and very successful reign within the realms of touring car racing. His skills with the DEX410v3 are unquestionable as he settles into what looks to be a very strong 2013 with both Team Durango 2WD and 4WD teams.
