Toy Fair 2011 – Short Course round-up

Having covered the toy fair in depth for Red RC we decided to bring together all the short course related releases for an easy overview, beginning with Durango. On display at their German distributors stand, the Durango DESC410R was making its public debut. Having written in depth about the car here, its basically a longer and wider version of the successful DEX410, with the chassis is made from a sandwich of materials that creates a strong and very stiff backbone for the car, something that could not have been achieved with the aluminium side skirts used on the 1/10th buggy.

STRC XXX-SCT range of option parts

ST Racing Concepts have turned their attentions to the Losi XXX-SCT truck and as with the other cars they make parts for they tried to not just add durability with their aluminium parts but also tried to build in performance advantages and innovation to each part as well. Especially with the XXX-SCT, they understand that this is not going to be a basher for most, but more of a race vehicle, so their new line of products were built with that in mind.

Kyle McBride does the Meakin Masters three-peat

Kyle McBride as taken his third straight win at the Meakin Masters, held at the Brickyard, Logan Off Road’s track in South East Queensland, Australia.  The event took place last weekend and after 6 rounds of qualifying, Kyle took the TQ with his DNX408, setting an extremely fast pace. At the start of the A-main Kyle battled hard with the 2nd place qualifier for the first 5 minutes and then made a break to take a comfortable lead, after the first fuel stop Kyle was in a very strong position and continued to push hard – eventually lapping the whole field by the 25 minute mark. By the time the 30-minute final was over Kyle had built up a fantastic lead to give his DNX408 another great win. This is Kyles third straight win in the annual Meakin Masters race with victories in 2009, 2010 & now in 2011 piloting the Team Durango DNX408.
