ORB Racing have released a first teaser image of their Forward called 1/10th scale 2WD front-wheel drive buggy conversion kit. The entirely new front/mid-motor platform utilises donor parts of a Team Associated B6.1D/DL buggy, doing away with the need to source discontinued Team Durango parts – as it was needed for its predecessor. The buggy is currently in its final stages of design and the conversion kit will become available soon.
ORB Racing, makers of their FF210 FWD 1/10th scale conversion have opened pre orders for this unique buggy. The FF210 is a conversion kit that turns the Team Durango DEX210V2 and DEX210 into a competitive front-wheel-drive buggy for low-medium bite surfaces such as dirt, outdoor clay, grass and wet astroturf. The front-wheel-drive concept claims to offer higher cornering speeds than rear wheel drive buggies whilst also maintaining better stability, resulting in a car that is both consistent and quick. In the kit are nylon 3D components (dyed black), carbon fibre composite plates, a clear polycarbonate bodyshell and some small parts and hardware. You will need a separately available Team Durango DEX210V2 donor vehicle and electronics to complete the FWD Buggy. With addition of a few parts, the conversion kit is also compatible with the DEX210.
