Team Durango DEX408 electric buggy

Team Durango DEX408 electric buggy

Team Durango have introduced the DEX408, the electric version of the company’s soon to be released DNX408 gas powered 1/8th scale buggy. Rather than releasing a conversion kit for a nitro car, they have studied the 1/8 electric class carefully and concluded that to make the best possible 1/8 electric buggy, they would design a new car. Many of the components on the DEX408 are shared with its German National Championship winning brother the DNX408, which means that 1/8 scale fans can share wishbones, shocks and differential spare parts between their nitro and electric racing buggies.
