Losi Ten-SCTE 4wd Short Course truck

The Losi 1/10-scale Ten-SCTE 4wd Short Course rolling chassis is unlike anything you’ve seen. With oversized 12mm anodized threaded shocks, Eclipse Short Course truck tires and lightweight black anodized aluminium chassis, the Ten-SCTE’s performance is unforgettable. Because it’s a rolling chassis, this short course truck comes out of the box pre-assembled at the factory with wheels, tires and a clear body, but without electronics allowing you ti complete the truck using the electronics of your choice.

Video – Hupo Honigl testing the Durango DESC410R


More testing videos from the Durango DESC410R, this time Austrian Hupo Honigl running the car at his track in Vienna. In it you can see how well the car appears to take jumps and the amount of traction it has, with the triple and its short run up being a good example.

Brian Kinwald testing the DESC410R

Team Durango are reporting that for the last month, two-time World Champion Brian Kinwald, has been testing the DESC410R. Asking Brian how he felt the testing had gone he said “After driving a few different 4wd Short Course trucks I can honestly say that the Team Durango DESC410R feels like you’re cheating! When you’re out on the track it has more steering and superior suspension capabilities over any other truck by far. I won’t name names, but many top drivers have seen it run and they all say the same thing, ‘That’s not even fair’. I have only run it for a few weeks and already I’m in love…” Thanks to Brian’s work, Durango are getting close to announcing the final launch date of this new car.

Team Durango DESC410R update

Having brought you the first photos of the new DESC410R at the start of the week, Durango have released an additional image to better show the standard rear bumper. Smaller than those seen on other cars, as it is a race spec car so they didn’t want to add too much weight, the bumper does a good job of protecting the car from nose up landings without throwing you off the racing line. Finally, they wanted to say that the tires shown in the photos will not be included in the kit, as racers will buy what’s best for their track.
