“First of all, I would like to say a huge thank you to the whole of the TRF team, the last few years has been a great experience and it has been a pleasure working with you all!

As times move on, new opportunities arise and this has been the case with Team Durango. The commitment of Team Durango to their racing projects is second to none and I am confident that working with them will achieve many wins and great results. It is a pleasure to be a part of this established racing team. I am really looking forward to the coming years working with Team Durango and I have a lot of faith in the forthcoming DETC410 project. We will all work to provide the most competitive and user friendly touring car on the market! Watch this space…..”

En tout cas j'espère que ce sera quelque chose d'innovant et sortant un peu des classiques habituels qu'on nous sort dans toutes les couleurs...

Ça, ce serait de l'innovation :) Malheureusement, je pense qu'on rêve un peu trop...quoique :grin:

Ce qui est sur, c'est que le nom n'est annonciateur de rien car ils ont juste respecté leur logique à ce niveau là, et ce depuis le renouveau de la marque (cf DEX410 pour TT 1/10 4x4, DEX210 pour TT 1/10 4x2, DEX408/DNX408 pour TT 1/8 4x4 électrique/thermique,...)

En tout cas, si j'ai bien compris ce qui s'est dit sur RC Tech, il parait qu'Elliott a essayé une T4 le we passé pour voir comment se comportait une auto avec des amortos courts et il a eu en main une BD7 pour voir un peu comment elle était faite...doit-on parier sur une énième copie des TC actuelles?

Ce qui est sur, c'est que les premiers dessins (ou le premier proto??) doivent sortir d'ici fin de la semaine prochaine ou celle d'après...wait and see ;-)

n'empêche que la seule info qu'on a, c'est... Stay tuned for more information about the Team Durango TC team very soon.

Et very soon... comme chacun le sait, en RC, ça peut bien être qq semaines, quelques mois, voire même des années!!!

Mais si je voulais rêver un peu, je prendrai bien un châssis avec une transmission à cardan pour le rendement et des amortisseurs + classiques que ceux de l'A700...

Pis j'aimerais bien des soufflets sur les cardans aussi... comme ça, pu besoin de blades...

Oui, je sais, ce que j'écris ne fait pas avancer le schmilblick, mais on a le droit de rêver! :P

na!

En tout cas, si ils mettent autant de temps à la présenter qu'à sortir le DEX, on peut attendre encore longtemps (mauvaise langue) :grin:

Pas mal le coup de pub pour une première sortie nationale, après la déception constatée sur le net à propos du manque d'intérêt de la voiture (très (trop?) classique)...

The Cotswold RC track in the UK saw the unofficial BTCC season opening race and it was Team Durango’s newly signed Elliott Harper who took the TQ honours with the company’s DETC410 touring car prototype. Elliott was able to TQ every qualifying round and also posted the fasted lap ever at the Cotswold track. The young Brit then went on to sweep the A finals and took the race win in front of Schumacher’s Chris Grainger and Olly Jeffries (Team Associated).
