Young Team Durango Stars Shine – BRCA Short Course Nationals


 The Hall Brothers – Team Durango UK Junior Racers

We thought it would be good to share some really inspirational news with you. Eagle eyed readers will remember that last year we signed up two young UK Short Course racers to our UK junior team. The Hall brothers, Jamie and Tommy, are out and about again this summer, competing at all rounds of the BRCA Short Course National Tour.

Both young racers use the DESC210R Short Course Truck, and have found really pleasing results so far for 2014. Jamie is currently sat in third position on the BRCA Short Course National standings, with Tommy, who is only nine years old, nestling well withing ‘A’ Main pace at sixth place overall.

We should also mention that Jamie, aged 11 years old, is wining the junior series, with his brother Tommy once again backing him up by placing second overall as the season stands currently.

The Hall brothers have a combined age of just 20. They are already proving to be solid and consistent Short Course racers, we are really excited at the thought of these two rising Team Durango stars perhaps taking up the transmitter with a Buggy racing class very soon. They have already enjoyed building their DEX210v2 and DEX410v4 cars. Watch this space for updates on their progress.

Stay tuned as we hope to see Jamie and Tommy finish their BRCA Short Course National season in style very soon.

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.

Team Durango Short Course Trucks – Big Hit In Finland

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Young At Heart — Tags: , , , , — Stuart @ 2:39 pm


The Team Durango 2WD and 4WD Short Course range have recently found huge success in Finland at the first round of their Short Course Winter Cup.

The LRP Arena near Turku hosted an action packed meeting that witnessed what we think may be a new Team Durango record. The ‘A’ main finals across both 2WD and 4WD saw a total of 12 Team Durango Short Course Trucks racing from the total 20 finalists!

The DESC210R claimed four of the ‘A’ main final positions with Mikko Laitinen taking second overall. Tommi Tervo took third spot with Mikko Mäkelä finishing fourth overall.


In 4WD it was to be a really great day of racing for those drivers who chose the precision manufactured DESC410v2. With eight of the ‘A’ main finalists driving Team Durango Trucks, it was Tomi Salonen who flew to first overall, followed by Max Söderlund who placed third,  Eeli Vieno who finished fourth and yet another DESC410v2 in fifth, piloted by Tom Thusberg.

Not only did our friends in Finland show how popular Team Durango Short Course Trucks are, they also showed how one manufacturer can help ignite a whole racing class when the product is fast in the hands of all ages and abilities.

We send our congratulations to our dedicated supporters over in Finland, and send sincere thanks to everybody who contributed to such a fun and exciting first round of the Short Course Winter Cup.

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.

Team Durango New Zealand – ‘Serious About Racing’

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , , — Stuart @ 9:26 am


Team Durango New Zealand, headed by long-time supporter and off-road super star Shane O’Connor, have recently returned from the New Zealand North Island Champs victorious.

Shane was racing on fast form during this very popular multi-class off-road racing event. He was representing Team Durango in 2WD Buggy, 2WD Short Course and 4WD Short Course, as well as supporting the throngs of excited Team Durango fans who had chosen our vehicles to do battle at the prestigious event. With four days of intense competition completed, Shane was extremely happy to come home with an overall TQ in 2WD Buggy, 2WD Short Course and 4WD Short Course!

Not a racer to settle with anything but total victory, Shane then powered home for an overall first in 2WD Buggy and 4WD Short Course to stamp the Team Durango livery across the time sheets in style.


Shane drove the DEX210, DESC210R and DESC410v2 during the event and was able to show his dedication to the brand that is ‘Serious About Racing’ by beating a vast field of local talent, many of whom had also opted to utilise the world-class precision engineered products from Team Durango.

Avid Team Durango fan Angus Mcleod came overall first in 2WD Short Course with his DESC210R. Kelly Churchill was the highest placed female racer at the event, choosing Team Durango Race Ready RTR vehicles to put her straight into the top 20 listing in what was only her fourth ever race meeting since joining the hobby a short while ago!


Shane was really happy to also report that the DEX410v3 was fast at the Counties RC venue in Auckland. Taking four of the top ten positions in 4WD Buggy, the DEX410v3 found the dry dirt track surface easy to navigate for final positions of  second, third and fourth overall.


With 166 racers battling for off-road supremacy, it was Shane O’Connor and Team Durango New Zealand who dominated all race classes. Team Durango New Zealand are clearly ‘Serious About Racing’.

The ten year old Team Durango fan put together an excellent track performance to finish the BRCA National Junior 2WD SC Champion for 2013. Jamie also finished in fifth place overall, proving that he is a young racing star who will be one to watch on the senior racing circuit next season.

Jamie had recently changed his truck to the DESC210R after a frustrating period of not being happy with his results with other manufacturers. The switch to the Team Durango 2WD Short Course platform gave Jamie exactly what he needed, and resulted in a wonderful trophy for is soon to be crammed shelf at home.

The Hall family were not satisfied with just taking the overall 2WD junior title. Jamie’s younger brother Tommy also raced a wonderful fifth round and finished 2ND overall in the junior 2WD National series.
