    XRAY NT1 2011 – World Champion Pedigree

    February 3, 2011 - 07:22 by Kevin 0 Comments

    At the heart of XRAY’s philosophy is a firm commitment to perfection when it comes to engineering, design, performance and support, all made possible by state-of-the-art in house manufacturing. The NT1 is synonymous with the absolute perfection that is XRAY: a platform that has been capturing trophies at tracks all around the world, and also capturing the hearts & mind of customers who demand nothing less than excellence. Multiple winner of “Car of the Year” awards and the absolute winner of all major titles – including World Champion, European Champion, USA Champion, Asian Champion and dozens of National champion titles all around the world – proves the unbeatable pedigree of this platform. XRAY brings forth the NT1 2011 edition, the next evolution of the winning platform.

    “To improve upon the car that is already the world’s best performing platform and the most successful nitro touring car in the market has been an extremely tough task. During the last few years we have continued year-by-year to introduce new changes and ideas to improve performance, reliability, and handling. For 2011 we focused on what we knew to be missing for a pedigree racing car like the NT1 : a chassis designed to easily accommodate graphite reinforcing inserts or additional balancing weights (front and rear) and one that is easier to perform handling-improving set-up changes on. Enjoy the 2011 NT1 and see you at the tracks.”
    - Martin Hudy, XRAY NT1 Project Designer

    Team Durango shut-out @ Worksop

    February 2, 2011 - 11:59 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “Team Durango drivers shut the door on the competition at the 4th round of the hugely popular Worksop Indoor Masters series, with the DEX410 taking the top three positions in 4WD. 140+ drivers attended the 4th round of the Indoor Masters series at Worksop. In 4wd Danny McGee would take TQ in what was a close run qualifying with only he able to take two rounds. Craig Collinson and Nathan Waters took a round each to claim second and third on the grid respectively, whilst Adam Skelding took two seconds to grid up in 4th. Right from the off in the final the front four pulled away from the rest of the field and it was soon apparent that the winner would come from these four, but who? With only a second covering the front 4 until about half race distance when a couple of errors crept in from Danny and Craig promoted Nathan and Adam up to first and second respectively. Danny and Craig were still not done though and put pressure on the front two, but another couple of errors soon left a gap to the front. Nathan began to pull away from Adam and extend his lead whilst Adam seemed to have 2nd covered, but a couple of errors whilst trying to make sure of 2nd soon had Craig on his back door leaving a very nervy race to the line.”
