I was lucky enough to catch the postie this morning before heading to work. Lucky because he arrived bearing gifts for me, my new DESC210R kit from Tower Hobbies. I know there is probably a new V2 version on the way, but as I have the original DEX210 the parts commonality will be helpful, as well as the price on tower being a staggeringly low $160 USD. Why so low, well as I said before, a V2 is on the way! Talking to local Team Durango Driver Leo Lorenzen, Tower sold out of the cheap kits less than a week after I ordered and they have been marked as Discontinued (although not on the TD website yet), for once I was able to take advantage of a good deal which I normally manage to miss out on.
I suppose it’s a little bittersweet as this purchase marks a transition for me from being in the HPI camp, to my race vehicles all being Team Durango, but it’s not such a bad thing really as I ave been very impressed with the one Durango I have.
So keep your eyes peeled for photos from the build, and later on a report of how it goes on the track etc.
