I present you my crazy project!!!

First, the story:

In 2004 or 2005 I saw Bob Claes in Kampenhout for a training with his Durango. After that I was a Durango fanatic!!!

So I tried to contact Gerd Strenge to buy one, but I never received answer.

Here the Bob's Durango:

In 2008 I had the opportunity to have a Durango in my hands for few weeks. So I decided to draw a copy. For that I learned by myself the bases of Solidworks and I drew that:

After I modified the chassis to convert in 2007 version:

To finalize to project, it was possible with the Aeroracing Company. They made the specifics parts like the center driveshafts from the A-one.

So I ordered parts, I payed, but I never received the parts!! Thanks Aeroracing alias Bob Claes :(

In 2010 I bought a DEX410, I was happy, but it was not like an original Durango.

So I decided to adapt the transmission in my "project".

I modified about 50% of my drawings to install the DEX410 transmission, to use metric bearings and to use 25mm lipo.

And finally it's compatible!

Here 3d print to look if all is ok:

All others parts will come from DEX410!

After that I converted a traditional milling machine to CNC, I made the controller and I learned softwares to use it:

After some tests I can made the first aluminum parts!!!

Now I just need time to finish the project.

Milling take a lot of time and with the family it's not so easy...

Now I'm also the owner of an original Durango 2005!
