Hobbico sent us the following regarding the new Team Durango DEX408, enjoy!
In 1/8 nitro racing, you need a driver and a pit guy, costly nitro fuel and extensive engine-tuning skills. But in 1/8 scale electric racing, the most important thing you need is the DEX408. It's been designed specifically for the fast-growing 1/8 scale electric racing class without shortcuts or compromises. You don't have to tune the engine, buy fuel or have a pit crew. And that means you can enjoy the speed, the thrills and the excitement of 1/8 scale electric racing on your own, whenever you want.
With today's high-capacity batteries, you can get up to 20 minutes of run time from a fully charged pack. With the right brushless motor/ESC combo, top speed can be almost anything you want it to be. And with the DEX408's 4WD torque and handling edge, you can go...and compete...anywhere. Front to rear weight distribution is virtually perfect and a narrow, hard-anodized 3 mm T6 chassis offers both impressive strength and the agility of 1/10 scale buggies. Other pluses include an adjustable suspension, 15 mm Big Bore shocks, monster 5mm aluminum shock towers and much, much more.
