Neumann & DEX210v2 Crowned 2014 Euro Champions

4s6a7638-edit

Jörn Neumann – 2014 EFRA European Champion – 2WD Electric Buggy

Team Durango racing star, Jörn Neumann, has raced to an overall first place finish at the 2014 2WD Off-Road European Championships with the DEX210v2.

Jörn was able to secure three TQ round wins during the five round qualifying session, putting him second on the grid in the prestigious ‘A’ Main final. After a fierce battle with the fastest drivers in Europe, including long-time rival Lee Martin, Jörn raced to a leg two and three win with his DEX210v2, putting the defending ace straight back on the top spot as 2014 2WD European Champion.

4s6a7483-edit

The Trelleborg track surface was indoor dirt, creating a racing environment that was best suited for rear motor configuration 2WD cars. Neumann was thrilled to take his virtually box stock DEX210v2 to victory on the slippery dirt surface, showing that the DEX210v2 is the most versatile 2WD Electric Buggy package commercially available to the racing community.

Notice we stated ‘virtually box stock’.

So we now can share some very exciting preview news.

Team Durango are excited to announce a new additional layer of design philosophy, harking back to Gerd Strenge’s bespoke engineered craftsmanship, which will result in a supplementary range of option parts to take your car to a new level of optimisation.

To focus your Team Durango vehicle on a specific track application, our new range of option parts will allow you to permanently transform your race machine to gain ‘on point’ performance. These selected option parts require some basic modelling skills, with minor modifications needed to your stock kit car. Gerd created the early Team Durango cars in this way, often hand-finishing items for a super-bespoke fit and finish.

Jörn was able to use an early version of just one new option part, to create a DEX210v2 that was completely focused for winning on the difficult low-grip dirt track. Jörn has won this ultra-competitive race using our new targeted performance rear bulkhead, designed for the DEX210v2 in rear motor configuration.

 Print

Now we have proven our early concept, stay tuned as we prepare this new part for public release, allowing you the opportunity to turn your Team Durango vehicle into an even more focused race-winning machine.

More ‘on point’ optimisation to follow.

Team Durango Top Picks For 2013 – Team Driver Top Picks To Improve Your Racing

Filed under: News,Team Driver,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — Stuart @ 4:32 pm

arrma-and-td-video-logos-06With competition never getting any slower, we realise that you will all be looking for that added ‘edge’ when it comes to racing your Team Durango vehicle to win.

We are very excited to share with all our loyal fans a few of the option parts that our UK team drivers are currently using, with a brief description of the benefits that you will experience if you choose to adopt our advice.

Team Durango benefit from a strong network on team drivers who provide us with the valuable information that helps us create world class products. Add to this a combined racing experience of just over 100 years here at Team Durango HQ, and you can be sure that every tip we pass on has been tested and proven to do one thing, increase performance for all drivers.

Available in 15g and 30g

Adding weight ballast to your DEX210 is one way to tune the handling characteristics of your car. Our precision machined brass inserts are a great way to add between 15g and 30g directly under your servo. The DEX210 benefits from a purpose cut aperture in the aluminium chassis plate that will alow you to add or subtract this weight quickly and easily. Adding weight ballast in this area can reduce front end steering response and also be used as a counter-balance for those who choose to run their battery cells in the rear position but still want the option of creating a more forgiving front end handling characteristic. We have used this Team Durango brass weight with great results when the track surface required a ‘softer’ initial turn into corners. We also experienced a benefit to jump handling and straight line stability on bumpy track sections.

Precision machined and etched with Team Durango race livery - Nice

Our Flex Control System is an option part for the ever successful DEX410 platform. It directly replaces the kit composite or carbon rear brace, and provides a really useful tuning aid for your buggy. With the Flex Control System installed you can alter the amount of rear chassis plate torsional flex by adjusting the number of shims placed between the screw heads and rubber inserts. It is generally accepted that more flexibility in your chassis will provide more grip when the track surface is loose. A stiffer chassis configuration is generally better when the track surface provides higher grip levels. We have experienced great results with this option part when the grip levels are prone to change during outdoor race meeting. A wet Astroturf surface that dries during the day is a prime example. The added bonus of our Flex Brace System is that we anodised the machined aluminium in our signature olive colour, your DEX410 will look cool as you enjoy the tuning options that this brace provides.

Team Durango gear grease is supplied in a handy screw top tube

To build the perfect gear box you will always want to protect your internal gear assembly with a good quality grease. The Team Durango gear grease will protect against abrasion wear, and also provide a high tolerance to heat when your gear box is used under race conditions. We also use this grease to assist in the building of slipper clutch constructions by adding a dab to the rear of the slipper pads. This help them stay seated when constructing the assembly. This grease is also excellent for lubricating the threads of your freshly built turnbuckles to assist with later set-up adjustments. Every Team Durango team driver will agree that a high quality gear grease is a really valuable addition to your pit box.

Here at Team Durango we utilise motor sport engineers during the creation of all our products. This means that our design and development team is rich in real world racing experience. We understand that even the smallest competitive advantage will be a benefit when all your efforts are defined by the digits on a stopwatch.

Machined from high quality steel, this diff ring gear is also strong and hard wearing to withstand the stresses of fast paced race competition.

DJoint Drive Shaft System – Increase Your Efficiency

Filed under: News,Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — Stuart @ 5:29 pm

td210010m

Team Durango is constantly developing new and exciting products that will not only help you compete, but will also help you win. We are serious about racing, and we are also very serious about precision manufactured option parts to further optimise the performance of your Team Durango vehicle.

The highly decorated DEX410V3 buggy is no stranger to intense competition. In the hands of both professional team racers and the legions of committed club racers worldwide, the DEX410V3 just keeps on winning.

Specially designed for the DEX410 range of vehicles, our DJoint drive shaft system is a product with one valuable racing commodity in mind, efficiency.  The DJoint drive shafts feature a double joint in the coupling of each shaft, meaning that each joint works at half the articulation of the conventional drive shaft, increasing the efficiency in which the drive shaft transmits the drive to the front and rear gearboxes. The resulting increase in drive shaft efficiency will in turn directly translate to more forward momentum down at the wheels.

Precision machined from strong and durable material, the DJoint drive shaft system will perform under all racing conditions. The DJoint centre drive shaft set includes all the parts required to build a front and rear centre drive shaft for your DEX410 model.

4WD off-road is a punishing racing class at 10th scale. Team Durango are always researching ways to provide faster, smoother and longer lasting products that will give you more time on the track, and less time on the pit table.
