    Official DB-01 Durga Thread

    Since every other car seems to have an official thread I thought I'd start one for the Durga. Its beginning to get much more interest on the forum I'm noticing. This can be a good place for people interested in the kit to learn more about it and see if its right for them.

    I guess us current Durga owners can start with posting a picture or two of our completed kit.

    RE: Official DB-01 Durga Thread

    Anyone who has BOTH the Durga and the Dark Impact could you tell me which is more durable?

    I believe you can attach pictures on here but it's always worth having a photobucket/imageshack/flickr (etc etc) type account anyway.

    Once you do just upload them into your account and there's normally an option to copy BB Code, which is what you need to post here. Or find the URL of the picture and post it between the image tags.

    EG.

    I've got the Mamba Max 4600 on mine and it seems to do great. Good amount of torque and doesn't spin the belts so fast that they toast the diffs. Still makes the buggy quite fast on 6 cells.

    RE: Official DB-01 Durga Thread

    hey guys. i'm liking the pics of the tamiya durga. seems like an awesome car. i've been a fan of tamiya r/c cars for a long time now, and i'm wondering if you guys would recommend the durga as a good 1st time 4wd buggy? i really want to get into 4wd buggies, but cannot justify the price for an associated b44 or losi xxx g+.

    Durga, no question. the plastics are different in both kits. i am a mostly concrete basher and ive bashed both kits head on or tail first at almost full throttle.

    hi casualrcer,

    my recommendation: NO.

    the durga is quite technical in its design and maintainance (if you break a lot of parts) is quite a chore-so much that it might put you off having actual driving fun.

    i suggest u to get a shaft-driven instead if youre starting out on 4wd buggies (which i might add, is a lot more fun than touring cars!)

    Nice durga man. I especially like the alloy arms. Hows it holding up so far?

    RE: Official DB-01 Durga Thread

    Probably worth putting this link in this thread. Well respected review of the Durga.

    http://www.oople.com/rc/photos/reviewtamiyadurga/

    I just finished reading the 63 page thread on their forum and a few people are mentioning that the Tamiya CVDs seem to be slightly shorter than the stock dogbones, causing problems, especially when using the TRF shocks, which are slightly longer than stock. Anybody on here noticed anything similar or had problems?

    I am planning on getting one of these buggies in the near future (perhaps this summer); I know it is soon to ask this, but where is the best place to buy it?
