Durango release details of DNX408 body shell

Durango release details of DEX408 body shell

Durango are claiming that their DNX408 1/8th scale has the lowest bodyshell around. This has many benefits, like low centre of gravity, minimal frontal area to punch through the air, more air flow over the rear wing etc, but it also helps with heat management. The engine head in a DNX408 gets the most direct clean airflow of any car, plus the body is designed to direct as much air as possible over the bodyshell at the engine head, rather than through the body. The central engine and low bodyshell mean that all shock bodies are also in clean airflow. The rear wing is as close to the rear wheels as possible, thanks to the forward shock position, this drives the down-force directly to the rear wheels. Too many wings on 1/8 buggies are way out back which means more wheelies than down-force.
