Race Like A Pro – Team Durango Race Ready RTR Drivers Guide

dexrtrpress

Team Durango Race Ready RTR vehicles are the perfect way for aspiring off-road racers to begin their rise to racing driving fame. Accessing the world-class Team Durango race DNS has never been easier. Our range incorporates 10th scale 2WD vehicles that can compete at any level in the buggy, stadium truck or short course classes at your local RC racing club.

As soon as you power up our Team Durango RTR vehicles you will be catapulted into the exhilarating sport that captures millions of motor sports fans imaginations every year. We thought that it would be a great opportunity to share with you some hot tips that will make your first race meeting or fun trip to your local track an even more enjoyable experience. Follow these easy steps to make sure you can race like a pro from the first outing with your Team Durango RTR vehicle.

Race Like A Pro – Race Ready Drivers Guide

Whether you are a seasoned expert who has recently returned to the sport or a complete newcomer to the fast paced action of competitive RC motor sport, Team Durango Race Ready vehicles will have you covered.

  • Always charge you battery cells on an appropriate battery charger before you attend your local track. Modern battery cells are very sensitive to low voltage and should be maintained carefully as per your battery suppliers instructions. Charging your battery cells will allow you to be confident that you will be able to run your Team Durango RTR vehicle to its full capacity and race to win.
  • Carry a comprehensive collection of tools. Unlike many other motor sports, RC racing will require you to become your own experienced pit crew. This will include tuning your vehicle to the track conditions and also maintaining your car through the course of a race meeting. You should always be prepared by carrying a good selection of hex driver and nut wrench tools that are the correct sizes for your vehicles hardware items. Your tools will be valuable when you are working on your vehicle in between races and will allow you to make quick and easy adjustments in minutes.
  • Check the batteries in your vehicles transmitter to avoid running out of juice during your days racing. Carry some spares so you can quickly change them if signs of depletion occur.
  • Make sure that you understand how your Team Durango vehicle works. The internet is such a powerful tool. Research how your gearbox, motor, ESC and servo unit work. Read your manual from cover to cover and always carry this with you so you can refer to the contents when you are in the heat of competition.
  • Stay relaxed. This sounds like a simple tip but we can relate to the excitement and tension of your first track day. Staying relaxed will not only help you drive better, but will also allow you to comfortably ask questions of other racers and enjoy the spectacle of off-road RC racing. Pro racers are so relaxed to watch, but so prepared to win.
  • Tell your friends and family about your experience. Join a forum or discussion group. Interact with the people who have years of experience within the genre of RC racing you enjoy. Team Durango have built their collective experience over years of practical and research based learning. Use the scene to assist you in developing your skills. There is a whole world of exciting information at your finger tips.
  • Smile and laugh. Keep in mind that no matter how fast your local pro sponsored drivers race, they all compete in off-road RC motor sport for enjoyment. Share this joy with everybody you meet and tell them about Team Durango. We love meeting new racers.

Team Durango Race Ready RTR vehicles – Invest In The Future Of Off-Road

newsimage

Here at Team Durango we are strong believers in investing in the future of our sport. We believe that the younger generations of RC racers will undoubtedly be the impetus for our sport to continue growing. Every club race that we attend continues to substantiate the fact that RC fans are getting younger every season, with many father and child teams gracing the pit area to enjoy the action together. This always reminds us that not only is RC racing a wonderful sport to enjoy fast paced competition, but it is also a really vibrant environment to educate people and share experiences.

You will all remember your first RC experience, and also the enormous volume of information that became available to you as you discovered the true depth of RC racing as a leisure pursuit. We have all learnt so much from this sport that it seems completely logical that Team Durango continue to provide the opportunity for racers to access the sometimes complicated equipment that is needed to compete, in a high quality ‘ready to run’ package.

screen-shot-2012-08-24-at-1-44-07-pm

The Team Durango Race Ready RTR range of vehicles is the basis of our further investment in the future of our sport. When we set out  to create a range of Team Durango racing vehicles that were heavily influenced by our professional level race kits, we knew that when we achieved this goal, it would allow the legions of dedicated club racers and junior RC fans a perfect starting point for their racing career.

Our range of RTR vehicles feature high quality Speed Passion motors and ESC units, dedicated 2.4GHZ radio transmitters and exactly the same professional race geometry as our world-class pro kits. Take any Team Durango RTR vehicle from its box and you will instantly recognise that our rich race heritage oozes from each car. Our goal was to provide a complete Race Ready vehicle that could win straight from the box, and thousands of racers all over the globe will testify to the success of this concept “Team Durango RTR cars are winning against other pro kits, people seem to be driving much faster with them, big grinning faces means happy racers” Colin Jackson – Fast Lane Model Racing Club.

More tuning options straight from the box than any other range of RTR vehicles, combined with the styling and electrical components of a pro racers equipment, make Team Durango Race Ready RTR vehicles the perfect learning tool or instant refresher for any aspiring race winner.
