Latest race news from Duratrax:
1/18th National Championships
Some of the most exciting things come in small packages and at this year’s 1/18th National Championships, the racing was more competitive then ever with over 140 entries. Having a full line of 1/18th vehicles, Duratrax was out to stake their claim to a couple of titles…and that’s just what they did.
As with most other racing events the “Production” or “Stock” classes seem to be the most competitive, the vehicles must be raced with all stock parts and it boils down to setup and driving talent.
In the production buggy class, Matt Maziarz (shown below) had his Duratrax Vendetta buggy dialed to perfection as he took the top spot on the podium proving that the Vendetta is STILL the buggy to beat. Maziarz also used the Tactic 2.4 radio system to pilot his Vendetta to the victory.
Production Short Course
One of the hottest vehicles on the planet right now is the short course truck. Duratrax worked hard to create the most competitive and durable truck on the market and it showed at this year’s event.
Duratrax’s own Rick Vessell (pictured below) took his Vendetta SC and let the crowd know he was the one to beat by laying down the overall TQ. In the main event, it was much of the same thing as Vessell put on a driving clinic as he clinched the national title for the Vendetta SC in it’s first year out.
To finish off an impressive race weekend, Vessell also took his Vendetta SC to an impressive second place finish in the highly competitive, no-holds-barred Open Short Course class.
