DB-01 Durga roll out

In true racing fashion the car was completed in the middle of the night prior to race day. I only had the possibility to do some testrun up and down the street at 00.30 ! But the car worked well straight out of the box, I did not even have to adjust radio to get it to track straight !

Tamiya DB-01 Durga

I have decided to to try out electric 4wd off road. It has been a long time since I last owned a 4wd buggy. It was in 1990 and the car was a Kyosho Optima Mid Custom which actually was my first proper rc car but I did not race at that time.

I chose the DB-01 Durga over the TRF 501 X because I wanted to try something diffrent. Building the car was ok but it is ofcourse far from the precision and quality of the aluminium / carbon fiber chassis on the 501.

I have added many options on the car. See complete list here.

TRF 416 first test and race outdoors

We did a short shakedown and then stright off to the first outdoor race with the TRF416. Using the same base set up as the TRF team in the ETS race in Netherland we improved the car during the race and in the end it was on the pace. Now we hope to start testing on our test track to get better understanding of the chassis on outdtdoor tracks. It is great running on asphalt again !
