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.

Cactus Classic Multiple ‘A’ Main Finishes


Team Durango Pro team racers Lutz, Amezcua and Neumann have returned from the annual Cactus Classic in Scottsdale Arizona with a great collection of results.

The Cactus Classic is widely recognised as one of the premier 1/10 off-road race meetings in the USA, and with some of the fastest racing talent attending, Team Durango were ready for action.

With the Scottsdale RC Raceway dirt track being prepared with a liberal coating of the now ubiquitous sugar and water, our Pro team were excited to race the new DEX210v2 and DEX410v4. All three racers were happy to secure a ‘A’ main top ten finish with the DEX210v2, showing the strength of the newly launched 2WD Buggy platform at the highest level of competition.


Neumann found the DEX410v4 was fast on the sugar watered clay surface. The new Two-Way Slipper Clutch performed extremely well

4WD Buggy was to conclude with Jörn Neumann placed in fourth overall, highlighting the awesome potential of the DEX410v4 on a track surface treatment that is becoming very popular in the USA. Jörn was to go on to also secure second overall in the Stadium Truck class with his DEST210R. Ryan was really pleased with the performance of both his DEX210v2 and DEX410v4, and he has reported that both cars drove very consistently on the sugar watered surface.


Ryan Lutz found his DEX210v2 really easy to drive, with heaps of forward traction and well-balanced steering throughout. The new -2mm Rear Suspension Hanger was perfectly suited to the Scottsdale surface

With Scottsdale RC Raceway hosting this hugely popular annual race, for the last time on the outdoor track prior to it moving indoors for next year, Team Durango were really happy to conclude the event with 11 Cactus Classic Trophies!


Travis Amezcua was happy to add a second place ‘A’ main third leg finish to his top ten 2WD Buggy result

We send our congratulations to the team for a great set of results at the Cactus Classic. We also send thanks to our colleagues in the USA for their track-side support, and to Gerd Streng for his tireless pit support and development work.

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.


Our 2013 Cactus Classic class-winning DEST210R in Leo Lorenzen flavour

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.
