Team Tech Tips – Diff Change – 210 Range


Master The Hybrid Technology Gearbox

The Team Durango patented Hybrid Technology Gearbox allows you to quickly change from running your 2WD vehicle in mid-motor, to a rear motor configuration. This unique Gearbox assembly is also specially designed to be used either with the kit specification Ball Diff parts, or with the optional Gear Diff, providing a wide range of track-surface-specific tuning options in minutes. Both Diff assemblies are designed to be used with all 210 vehicles in the range, including our Race Ready RTR kits.

Team Durango UK team driver Jason Ametrine, shows you how to quickly switch between the Ball Diff and Gear Diff assembly, making this process even easier with his clear and simple guide.

The Team Durango Ball Diff is perfect for track surfaces with low to medium grip, and is favoured when running your vehicle in rear motor configuration on dirt or clay.


The Team Durango Gear Diff is perfect for high-grip carpet, Astroturf or sugar watered clay track surfaces when you are running your vehicle in mid-motor configuration.


You will feel even more capable of getting the best performance from your DEX210, DEST210 or DESC210 kit after watching this really helpful guide.

Harness the race-winning performance of the Team Durango Hybrid Technology Gearbox now.

National 2WD Short Course Champion Joins Team Durango


Jamie and Tommy Hall have recently set a new standard that will inspire all young  off-road racers. Jamie was recently crowned the 2013 Junior 2WD Short Course Champion, with his younger brother Tommy also finishing high in the season rankings. Both young racers also concluded their 2013 Short Course season by finishing in the top ten of the overall BRCA National series, right next to the adult competitors! This will be the third BRCA title that Jamie has won over as many years.

We are extremely excited to announce that Jamie Hall will now be joining our UK racing team, bringing another champion into the Team Durango family. Tommy Hall will also be joining the team, as we look forward to supporting these two young racers over the next action packed season of racing.

Jamie and Tommy are already a great example of the future of off-road racing, and a quick look into their family heritage shows us that their Mother was a National full-scale dirt oval champion. Their Father was involved in full-scale auto-cross for many years also. The Hall family are definitely ‘Serious About Racing’, and we welcome them to the team.

Learn more about the DESC210R that Jamie used to dominate the Junior BRCA 2WD National Shout Course season here:

DESC410v2 Takes First In The Hands Of Söderlund – Short Course King


Finnish Team Durango racing star Max Söderlund has stormed to an overall first place finish at the recently contested SC Summer Cup hosted at the Jyvaskylas 8th scale raceway. Max piloted his DESC410v2 to take overall TQ and won three of the four ‘A’ main final legs.

Max dominated the race schedule and was keen to share these exciting words with us regarding his DESC410v2 truck,

“My car, the Team Durango DESC410 v2, worked perfectly the whole day. I didn’t break anything, and only had to change batteries between rounds. I was the only one managing 11 lap results, and I did that 3 times. I managed TQ, Fastest lap and won 3 finals out of 4” – Max Söderlund

The DESC410v2 continues to return from high-profile Short Course meetings all over the globe with convincing podium finishes. Max has once again shown the awesome potential of the truck, and we congratulate him for a really impressive set of results. Seeing the DESC410v2 also post the fastest lap at this meeting is a sure sign that if you want to win, you should choose Team Durango!

To learn why the DESC410v2 is at the very pinnacle of engineered Short Course truck racing, click here now:
