Source: Track13News

Hobbico announced that they had put an end to the slow agony of Team Durango started two years ago. We had learned the difficulties of the brand when Hobbico, to try to save TD, had ended the sponsorship of its iconic drivers lsuch as Jorn Neumann and Ryan Lutz and considerably slowed down the development of their vehicles. Team Durango will then be less and less present in competition and generally on the international scene, less mediaized than before and despite its notoriety Team Durango will not have succeeded to regain its place on the market. Despite this sad news, Hobbico announced that ARRMA will continue its activities.

RDRP B64 brass suspension mounts

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced four brass suspension mounts for the Team Associated B64 series of buggies. They are direct replacement for the kit’s lightweight parts and add valuable weight especially when running in high-traction conditions or when the track is getting bumpier. Machined from black-coated brass and sporting gold-colour chamfered edges the parts weigh in at 14g for the A LRC mount, 13g for the B LRC mount, 14g for the C mount and 15g for the D mount which shifts the weight bias further to the front or rear of the buggy, depending on the location of the brass hangers. Using the front A and B brass mounts will result in an easier to drive buggy while the rear C and D mounts add traction out of and rotation into corners. All mounts were designed to work with the original #92014 arm mount inserts and they are best used in pairs at the front or the rear.
