As you would expect from Team Durango, precision, quality and performance are the hallmarks of the DNX408.
1/8 scale nitro buggy racing makes the toughest demands of any RC car racing class, so Team Durango have designed a car that is as strong as it is fast!
Lowest centre of gravity in its class; again it gives you the confidence to push for PB lap times without falling off the race track.
The narrowest and most compact layout in its class, the DNX408 makes
the car forgiving, agile and fast without any 'edginess'. Push it and it
gives you lap times, not crashes.
Diff tuning is a big part of this class, so like our 10th scale car we made
diff access super simple. Not only are you more likely to get your diffs
optimised on even the tightest of race schedules, there is no risk of you
upsetting your suspension when getting to the diffs.
A 5mm thick lightened chassis, only 104mm wide,
combined with machined alloy bulkheads. The smart
of braces and the positioning of the engine
centre bulkheads makes for a super-strong central spine of
the car with just enough torsional flex. With minimal flex kick-back, this
chassis assembly helps make the car land very well off jumps, and
allows you to feel the setup changes you make.
Machined alloy bearing holders and 'floating' stress-free diff case
assembly make for the lowest maintenance, longest life and maximum
Both centre drive shafts are the same. Some people have theories
that this is better for torque splitting, but one thing is for sure - it means
fewer parts required in your pit box.
The brake piston pushes exactly on the middle of the
brake pad and all-machined bulkheads
and brake pad mounts mean zero flex
and maximum feel.
All electronics on one super low CofG plate that's sunken
into the chassis Easy-to-get-to RX pack RX, plus
innovative ventilation hatch for those who have
experienced thermal shutdown of the RX.
Steering bell cranks follow the line of the suspension
kick-up - prevents bump steer and simply makes more
Smoother landings, less chance of catching bumps; ultimately it means fewer problems
and, in extreme conditions, faster lap times.
Precision machined one piece engine mount as standard to prevent
crankcase flex and engine problems. Gold memory mount plate means if
you need to take if off the chassis it 'remembers' the gear mesh. Two
piece mount, standard on many cars, just doesn't make sense.
Central filler makes for easy operation on CW and CCW tracks; with ribs
in the neck of the tank to prevent under-fills from the fuel gun going too
far into the tank. Internal baffles ensure fuel pick-up; integrated fuel
filter prevents problems, and fuel line clips keep things neat. For those
who swear by pressure line coolers there are mounts included in the top
of the tank.
Rubber boots and splash guards ensure you get to finish,
even on the dirtiest tracks.
The key to any off-road car, quality components throughout.
Rotating mass is the enemy of any race car, so many standard parts
have been lightened.
