Team Durango DEX408 4 Wheel Drive 1:8 Scale Off-Road Radio Control Car

The 1/8 electric off-road class of racing allows an individual driver the opportunity to race 1/8 off-road buggies. Compare this to 1/8 Nitro racing, which is a two man class; one person is needed to drive, and another person is needed to put the car on the start line, pit and re-fuel. 1/8 electric off-road racing allows you to race your car without the need for a pit guy. 1/8 electric off-road racing lets you experience the toughness, speed and excitement of the 1/8 scale class, without having to rely on someone else. As well as this, electric racing allows you to ‘set it and forget it’, meaning there is no need to tune engines. The DEX408 simply allows you to plug it in, turn it on and race.

1/8 electric off-road buggies should be just that; purpose-designed electric off-road buggies rather than nitro conversions. The DEX408 from Team Durango has been specifically designed for the emerging and exciting class of 1/8 scale electric off-road racing. With careful consideration of the electric-specific weight distribution requirements, the DEX408 makes no compromises; there are no short-cuts. If you are serious about 1/8 scale off-road buggies, the DEX408 should be your only choice.

Of course the internal components of an electric buggy are quite different to those of a nitro buggy, so it follows that the weight distribution of the components needs to be considered, calculated, tested and proven. That is what we did with the DEX408. In order to achieve optimum weight distribution (with a near perfect 50/50 front-to-rear), we decided to keep the chassis narrow, whilst allowing enough room for many of today’s most popular electrics and electronics. With a narrow chassis design, the DEX408 is nimble like its smaller DEX410 cousin, and it is easy to wrench-on in-between races.
