Team Durango are known for their high-end race machines but we recently received their new 8th scale DEX408T Electric Truggy Kit. Truggies have always been great bash machines, it’s hard to argue with their big tires, extra ground clearance, big shocks, and huge power.

The crew over at RPM RC Products have set their sights on a new vehicle to upgrade, the Team Durango DESC410 series of trucks. The first product they’ve worked up for the very popular Durango 4wd SCT is a Front Bumper/Skid Plate.
To start off with, RPM made their bumper wider than stock to protect more front end parts like the a-arms and hinge pins. Next they made the skid plate 20% thicker than stock, yet made it only reduce ground clearance by 1mm. RPM also removed the stock bumper support ring, ensuring that crash energy is not transferred to the diff housing, but to the chassis where it belongs. Finally, RPM designed the bumper to accept RPM light buckets for those of you looking for that trick scale look.
Part number for the RPM Durango front bumper is #73682, retail price is $14, and they should hit hobby shops in about 2 weeks. For more information, HERE is the direct link to the bumper on the official RPM website.

Team Durango just keeps blowing up, they’ve gone from a small company to one of the front runners in just a couple of years. With that success, many aftermarket companies have jumped on board putting out option parts. Out of all the companies making Durango option parts, Revolution Design Racing Products (RDRP) has to be considered one of the leaders.
RDRP has announced a new extended length chassis for the Durango 2wd DEX210 buggy. The 7075 T-6 aluminum chassis is stretched a full 11mm for better handling characteristics and is more than twice as rigid as the stock unit. The chassis has been CNC machined, it comes “murdered-out” with black anodizing, and has that trick laser etching that is such the rage right now.
