Duratrax Has Attitude

Oct 31, 2011 2 Comments by

Every so often RC company’s will revamp it’s logo, slogan and most importantly they will often improve the product. Not always at the same time. Duratrax did.
The guys at Duratrax want you to get outside and mix it up, to experience RC like you never have before. Duratrax started in the late 1980s as strictly a tire line. A few years later the company began developing other car accessories. A little while later you could even start buying Duratrax cars and trucks. They were designed mostly for first time and bash-around fun. Not anymore. It’s for everyone of all level’s of RC.

Now Duratrax has Futaba® 2.4GHz FHSS radio, waterproof electronics, licensed scale vehicles. I’ve suggested Duratrax products in the past and it’s refreshing to see them continue the RC seine with a fresh new look. The reliability and parts support are still #1.

    They need to work on their quality. The Vendetta ST got great reviews, but it was so weak in stock form. The plastic dogbones snapped almost immediately, the steering servo mount isn’t included and the double sided tape that is included fails after a few runs, I went through 2 stock ESCs before giving up and buying a Novak Spy, and the included battery pack died after 1 run. That is all the truth. I have never had such an unreliable RC. Without quality, a company will never succeedl.
