Excellence and innovation standard
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!
Centralized weight distribution
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.
Low center of gravity
Lowest center of gravity in its class; again it gives you the confidence to push for PB lap times without falling off the race track.
A 5mm thick lightened chassis, only 104mm wide, combined with machined alloy bulkheads. The smart design of braces and the positioning of the engine mount and center 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.
Easy diff access
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 optimized on even the tightest of race schedules, there is no risk of you upsetting your suspension when getting to the diffs.
Diff case design
Machined alloy bearing holders and 'floating' stress-free diff case assembly make for the lowest maintenance, longest life and maximum power transmission.
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.
Radio try and receiver box
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 suspension kick-up - prevents bump steer and simply makes more sense.
Class leading ground clearance
Smoother landings, less chance of catching bumps; ultimately it means fewer problems and, in extreme conditions, faster lap times.
Standard universal engine mount
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.
Fuel Tank Design
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.
15mm big bore shocks
The key to any off-road car, quality components throughout.
Lightened transmission parts
Rotating mass is the enemy of any race car, so many standard parts have been lightened.
