Team Durango DESC410R 4wd SC truck

Having released CAD images back in September, Durango now have released full information and images for their new short course truck. The DESC410R is a truly race-bred 4WD Short Course truck. Having taken the fastest elements from their DEX410 buggy, they added some new trick designs and components, and created the most race-focused SC truck available.

The Big Bore shocks, which come as standard on the DESC410R, are not just big, they are FAT! These bad boys will keep your truck feeling glued to the track and, when you’re landing hard and heavy off monster jumps, they’ll absorb all the energy, all the power, all the punishment you can give them, time and time again.

4WD SC racing is taking electric racing to a new level. These trucks have to be tough, strong and hard to survive. They need lots of power to get rolling and lots of power to stop. The DESC410R has been designed around 550 sized brushless motors. 4WD Short Course racing needs 550 motors – 540 just doesn’t cut it any more. We have designed our truck so that the longer 550 motor sits with perfect weight balance in the super-tough chassis.

Short Course racing trucks need beefed-up chassis. The chassis on the DESC410R is a 2.5mm thick aluminium plate strengthened with 2.0mm thick aluminium side rails. Sandwiched between the aluminium are three-part composite side-rail walls. The combination of precise design and high-quality materials means that the torsional strength of the DESC410R is second to none

Because so much power and torque from the 550 motors is being delivered to the Team Durango race-winning, shaft-driven, geared-diff drivetrain, our designers have created a slipper clutch which can be transformed into an oil-filled differential. Simply by removing the centre diff locker nut and adding diff gears (available separately), you can control how power is delivered to the drivetrain by fine-tuning the slipper clutch and centre diff.
