Everybody at Team Durango has shown me incredible motivation and professionalism. Thanks to the technical team and the drivers; we will focus on producing the best cars on the market. Everyone at Team Durango is ‘Serious About Racing’!

I’m really excited with this move and I look forward to race Team Durango for the near future, and of course, win! I will race 1/8 buggy (nitro and electric), 1/8 truggy, 1/10 electric, and the very impressive US style SC!

The Team looks impressive, and I’m proud to be part of it.

Posted by admin on Saturday, January 01, 2011 - 04:34 PM news

The Number One Short-Course Truck—Now With Velineon Brushless Power! Available November 1, 2010

Introducing the latest member of the VXL family; the awardwinning, best-selling Traxxas Slash, now with extreme Velineon Brushless Power. Slash VXL crushes the competition with brute force acceleration and unmatched top speed. With the included Power Cell 7-cell NiMh battery, Slash VXL rockets to over 40mph. Install optional 3S LiPo power, and Slash VXL blasts past 60mph! Slash VXL includes the Velineon Brushless Power System with LiPo-ready VXL-3s speed control and high-rpm Velineon 3500 motor. But we didn’t stop there; for steering precision at maximum speed, the Slash VXL includes a new dual-bellcrank steering system with integrated servo-saver (originally developed for Slash 4X4). New heavy-duty universal-joint driveshafts were engineered to handle the massive brushless torque. Re-tuned suspension tightens up the handling for those high-speed runs. 60+mph performance requires long-range control, and Slash VXL delivers with the switch on and drive convenience of the TQ 2.4GHz high-output radio system with Traxxas Link™. Slash VXL: because at Traxxas, our idea of having fun is going faster than everyone else! 5807 SLASH VXL: RRP £369.99

Posted by admin on Thursday, December 30, 2010 - 03:09 PM news

Chico, California, December 30, 2010 – A Main Hobbies today announced that they have signed Chad Bradley to the 2011 A Main Hobbies Race Team. Chad’s main sponsors will be A Main Hobbies and ProTek R/C and his chassis sponsor will be JQ Products.

One of the most respected and liked drivers in the 1/8th Off Road buggy class, Chad Bradley was the 2001 ROAR 1/8 Buggy National Champion and has been at the top of the class since that win. Chad started in radio control over 20 years ago when his dad purchased him his first vehicle, a Tamiya truck back in 1989 and they began racing occasionally, but really got into racing in 1992. Chad's resume of wins include some of the biggest races held in the United States and around the World.

Latest News: Elliott Boots drops Mugen and Signs for Team Durango (780 Reads)
Posted by admin on Wednesday, December 29, 2010 - 10:02 AM news

One of the UK’s and Europe’s most naturally talented drivers joins Team Durango.

Team Durango are delighted to have Elliott on board. As well as being a regular BRCA national winner and Euros junior champion, Elliott set the 6th fastest time in one of the earliest qualification rounds at the Pattaya worlds, without any pre-event practice; which really shows Elliott’s raw talent.

The DNX408’s fast but secure handling will suit his aggressive style, but for the next couple of months it’s just a case of him getting some track time with the new car to be best prepared for the 2011 season.

One of Elliott’s first outings for Team Durango will be with the DEX410 10th scale 4wd buggy, which should keep his thumbs defrosted while snow limits what’s possible with his 8th scale DNX408.
