DEX408T 1/8 Electric 4WD Off-Road Truggy Kit
The Team Durango DEX408T is the first and only 1:8th scale professional grade racing Truggy that requires no after-market conversion from its nitro powered counterparts. The DEX408T is not a nitro Truggy that has become an electric racing platform; it is an electric powered thoroughbred. 1:8th electric Truggy racing is a class that will be defined by the DEX408T.
Heavy-duty machined alloy suspension hangers, fitted front and rear, will give the Truggy strong and reliable suspension travel, even on the roughest tracks and off the biggest jumps. The DEX408T is engineered to perform under all the stresses of fast competition racing.
Machined alloy bulkheads provide the DEX408T gearbox and transmission assemblies with a solid and secure fitting.
Center Drifeshaft Circlips
The safe and secure operation of the DEX408T drive shafts is The low maintenance operation of the DEX408T drive shafts is achieved with our revolutionary clip fitting system on the centre drive shafts. Designed to give you peace of mind even when the racing gets really tough!
Specially designed with a wide range of race geometry options, the machined alloy shock towers perfectly support the precision engineered shock absorbers. Super strong and durable with full adjustability, the perfect complement to an electric racing Truggy that means business.
Spiral Machine-Cut Gears
The strong and reliable drivetrain is the foundation of the DEX408Ts awesome speed on the track. Our precision designed spiral machine-cut gears have been extensively tested for performance and durability. Smooth and consistent, you can feel the quality as you drive to the win.
Multi-Position Suspension Tuning
Our designers have given you tuning and configuration options just like the PROs use. Multiple positions for top- and bottom-shock location and camber links means you can fine-tune your truck to any track surface, and feel the benefit of our engineered racing heritage.
The DEX408T is built to stand the punishment of off-road racing. Precision machined from high quality aluminium, the chassis is expertly engineered to provide superior race handling and unrivalled durability. Fitted with our custom designed side guards, that not only reduce the ingress of dirt and debris, but also provides greater torsional chassis flex control, the DEX408T chassis plate is a world class platform.
You will feel the benefit of our precision manufactured shock absorbers both on the track, and on your pit table when you need to tune and service your DEX408T. Large capacity shock cartridges teamed with strong aluminium hardware, will give your Truggy smooth and consistent handling characteristics no matter what track terrain you are faced with.
Dirt and mud are part of off-road racing. Our custom designed mud guards will keep your drive shafts clear of unwanted debris. Teamed with our super strong shock shaft boots that provide smooth shock absorber travel under all racing conditions, this Truggy is engineered to keep going when the track gets dirty!
Easy Access Differentials
Differential tuning and maintenance is a dream with the easy access diff assemblies front and rear of the Truggy. You will experience no-nonsense gearbox adjustments in the pits, and will be forgiven for wondering how you ever got on before these essential features became available.
Diff Case Design
To complement our awesome differential design, the DEX408T is equipped with a host of performance enhancing features that will provide the ultimate transfer of brushless power. The 'floating' stress free diff case and machined alloy bearing holders will keep your Truggy silky smooth when the competition gets hot.
