DE Borrego SC wheel for Durango trucks

DE Racing have introduced a Borrego SC wheel for use on both the Team Durango DESC210 and DESC410 short course trucks. Modeled after their 1/10 buggy line, these wheels feature the realistic scale appearance of a beadlock wheel with mud cover, and can be used with their optional sticker disks to give a new level of color customizing. They have been offset +2.5mm from a stock Durango wheel and this added 5mm track width and modified steering scrub radius make the car more predictable and easy to drive. Available in black, silver, white & yellow.

Durango DESC210 2wd SC truck

At last weekends opening Euro Offroad Series race we were given a look at the soon to be released Team Durango DESC210 short course truck. The truck was making its debut in the Czech Republic and the team were using the event to test the final production parts on the car. Based off the DEX210 buggy, the chassis is all but identical but made longer to accommodate the larger trucks dimensions. Just like the DEX210, the car can be set up in rear or mid motor configurations, with the mid motor on carpet proving be very effective. We were told to expect a release in about 2 months.

Durango DESC410R underbody

New from Durango for the DESC410R, is this underbody, which is a great option for running on less than perfect tracks where you’re likely to get debris entering the chassis. It’s a great way of protecting your valuable electrics, or just keeping things clean. The cover sits snugly over the chassis and can be secured with hook and loop tape for maximum protection. Three vent scoops are provided and can be opened up if required with minimal negative effect on the protection offered.

Durango DESC410R full sized optional rear bumper

Listening to demand from some DESC410R racers for a full-sized optional rear bumper, Durango have put this piece into production. When designing the DESC410R they decided to go with a minimal rear bumper to save weight and keep with the racing ethos that Team Durango are famous for. With this optional rear bumper they’ve tried to keep the weight penalty to a minimum whilst providing the protection & looks that some users are demanding. The lower rear rail on the bumper has mounting points for 3rd party mud flaps if you choose to fit some, and this rail is removable to reduce weight if you just want the single rail out back. The bumper weighs 41g or 49g for the full-fat bumper with lower rail attached.
