Refined from the world famous DEX408 platform, the new DEX408 V2 takes 1/8th electric powered competition to the next level. Team Durango’s precision engineering and world class design innovations have been combined in the creation of the ultimate electric powered 1/8 racing buggy. The DEX408 V2 is manufactured with strength and durability as key design features such as a hard anodized 3mm aluminum chassis providing the perfect platform for this thoroughbred electric buggy. The 16mm Big Bore shocks are at the heart of the DEX408 V2’s ability to handle the most extreme track conditions. Combining rugged anodized aluminum construction with silky-smooth shock shafts and a dual tapered piston assembly, the DEX408V2 will soak up the jumps and lay down the traction as you race for the win.
Machined aluminum bulkheads and suspension hangers not only provide unrivaled strength on the track, they also ensure secure and reliable hardware, no matter how often you strip and re-assemble your DEX408v2. High-quality, hard-anodized aluminum shock towers give the DEX408 V2 the ability to withstand the big jumps and race hard and fast when the action gets tough. Incorporating a wide range of shock and camber link adjustments, your DEX408V2 can be perfectly tuned as the racing conditions change.
Our custom designed 1/8 electric buggy will provide a wide range of handling characteristics and precision tuning options straight from the box including all-new tapered, angled-hole shock pistons will give your DEX408V2 super-smooth suspension action and the ability to fine-tune your handling characteristics with a simple change of shock oil. New lighter composite diff gear parts will assist in transferring the brushless power efficiently whilst reducing the rotational mass of your differential assemblies.
The Team Durango DEX408 V2 now benefits from revised drivetrain geometry that includes a straighter rear diff output assembly for increased driveshaft efficiency and reduced friction. Combine this with our already race-proven ultra-smooth internal diff gears and you can be certain that the DEX408v2 is designed to be as smooth as it is fast.
The new dual-position rear hub carriers give the option of creating different rear end handling characteristics in seconds. Position one will provide higher traction during cornering, with position two providing a more progressive cornering action on surfaces with high traction. Brand new rear suspension arms not only give the DEX408v2 amazing ‘bump-handling’ characteristics, they also form the basis of an all-new rear end geometry for improved weight transfer in low traction environments. Aluminum shock adjustment nuts allow for precise ride-height and shock pre-load settings in seconds.
Multiple front and rear camber link adjustments, combined with upper and lower shock absorber settings, provide you with a buggy that can be dialed into any track in minutes.
Battery and Electronics Mounts
Your battery cells are treated to a snug and secure fitting with our custom hook and loop straps. The DEX408 V2 will easily accommodate ROAR legal cells with the flexibility of increasing your power capacity and battery size as you get faster on the track. This custom battery retention system will take cells that measure up to 35mm in height. The precision designed ESC and PT tray are manufactured from super durable and lightweight composite material. These items will provide a safe and easy access location for your essential electrical components.
All racers will agree that having a host of tuning options makes setting your buggy up in different conditions fast and easy. Team Durango now provide a custom anti-roll bar set, shock spring tuning options and specially designed aluminum option parts to allow you to bring advanced Team Durango racing science to your pit table.
The Durango DEX408V2 benefits from a distinctive body shell style that will turn heads in the pits and assist with your cars’ handling characteristics out on the track. Advanced aerodynamic styling combined with enough space to fit your electrical components make the DEX408v2 body shell the perfect complement to a buggy that clearly means business. The DEX408 V2 will generate the maximum down force on the track thanks to our scientifically engineered rear wing. Constructed from high-quality and flexible composite material, this wing brings unrivaled stability to your buggy when every racing line counts.
A 1/8 buggy with a slim silhouette? Team Durango bring their already proven ultra-slim chassis design to the world of 1/8 electric buggy racing. The durable composite side-pods not only provide amazing side impact durability, but also assist with creating extra space for fitting transponder and electrical equipment in a buggy that loses no marks for being a slim-line racing machine.
