DEX8 Secures Podium Honours

The second round of the League 4 Championship was recently contested in Noeux-les-Mines, with Team Durango France racer Raphael Robert securing a podium finish for his DEX8 1/8 4WD Electric Buggy.

With this prestigious meeting being only his second outing with the all-new DEX8, Raphael was very happy to find consistent pace against some of the regions fastest racers.

Raphael was able to qualify for the ‘A’ Main in third place on the grid, holding this position until the final lap, to take the podium place for Team Durango.

We send our sincere congratulations to Raphael for a great performance. We look forward to watching him race his DEX8 at the upcoming fourth round of the French 1/8 Nationals.

JRT France – Team Durango Mega-Fans

We have recently become further aware of a dedicated group of Team Durango racers in France called JRT. They promote their racing achievements through a web Blog, and are huge fans of Team Durango products. Not only do these guys share their passion for our products with the world, but they also spend countless hours creating a host of cool Team Durango themed items to further promote their love of our cars.

Racing is often a sport that breeds the stifled engineer in many participants. This keen interest in how we engineer our products can be seen with everything that JRT promote for us, including some rather nice home-brew Team Tech Tip items that we like very much.

The JRT technique of adding diff-oil signifying colour dots to their differential cases is a great example of how the guys are promoting the Team Durango philosophy of design evolution.

Close affiliates with our Team Durango France super-star Antoinne Rossetti, JRT create really good build tutorials and set-up guides on their Blog. It is always a great inspiration to find racers who choose Team Durango precision manufactured products to help them win.

Gilles attended the popular touring series with fellow Team Durango France racer Armand Lantheaume, and was delighted to walk away with the coveted RC Mag Cup Champion trophy.

Gilles is keen to share his satisfaction with the awesome performance of the DEX408T and has already created a really useful forum article to help fellow DEX408T owners with their electrical installations.

rossetti-2nd-french-nationals

Team Durango French stars Antoine Rossetti and Armand Lantheaume have returned from the French National Finals with two top podium finishes in the 1/10 2WD electric buggy class.

Antoine, who leads our French team drivers during their domestic race competitions, piloted his DEX210 to second overall behind his fellow DEX210 driver Armand who finished first.

Both drivers found that the rear three gear motor configuration was best for the loose dirt track conditions at the Gonfreville l’Orcher venue. This fifth round result gave Antoine an overall second in 2WD for the 2013 French National Championship series.

With Antoine just about to leave western France for the upcoming World Championships in California, we send our congratulations for his French National season results and our best wishes for the World Championship campaign.

Antoine Rossetti is fast on dirt, watch out for him and his DEX210 at the World Championships later this month.
