Does anybody know if this car shares anything with the Basher BZ-222?

I checked around a little and pretty much determined the answer is no.

You can get a exotek gear cover and have upto a 35t pinion in it.
I have a 34t pinion with a 72t spur and it fit fine.
Hope that helps

just keep in mind that if you decide to do say avid slipper, I don't think the exotek cover will fit.

I see amazon has a body, pricey though.

The DEX210V3 body should fit the DEX210V2 with no issues and I am seeing that in stock in a few places.

Maybe why the V2 body is harder to find, possibly.

For those of you who got a dex210V3 that looks like they threw the additional parts in to a v2 kit, did you get both body types?

It doesn't surprise me that V2 bodies are hard to find. Once production ends, supply dwindles. You'll just have to keep your eyes open for one or go to the V3 body.

My disappointment in Durango lately has been in consistency. They are doing what Mazda did to the rotary engine, something that I'm quite fond of. Each time they do something good, something else gets messed up. We get some new cars and updates but then parts availability is nill, like on the rear arms. Front shock shafts are now breaking and some are reporting 210 front arms cracking around the droop screw holes. Although I've had fun with the car, I'm currently working on converting it to a sprint car. I can't sell it for anything so it may as well be unique. I'm either going back to running vintage, something I love, or will pick up a new 22 3.0 to race with the modern cars.

yeah, there are some things I would like to see them do for sure, but, with all things, grass isn't always greener on the other side. All vehicles it appears have some sort of issues to deal with. At least with the Durangos I have, the issues from what I have on hand (I have a lot of spares ) are quite manageable and the vehicle performance I can't complain against. Its pretty much been all driver or for my DESC10 finding a setup that is carpet oriented which, for the vehicle, is pretty darn close.

I am hopeful though that this cutover they did to have less of a "team" really starts translating here into a better overall support of the product. I personally would have loved to see them actually pay someone I guess with the money savings to be dedicated to say a forum for the vehicle. Also, please get away from the parts trees, especially for parts that have extras on the trees that are not used at all with the kit they come with or the spares you buy for it.

There is no parts support here. Any spare parts have to be ordered. I can get Associated and Losi parts. Losi is the only one that has a suspension geometry that I actually mostly agree with. Associated got it wrong and Durango is just a carbon copy of theirs. There's nothing I can do to fix Durango's without completely redesigning the front end and also why I won't buy a B5M.

I order all I get as there is no hobbyshop here that supports racing and based on what I have seen I have some concern with Losi's wear on parts so I have steered a bit clear of them.

I'll have to give one a whirl sometime to see how they feel in comparison to what I have, but I have no complaints handling wise with the vehicles. Heck, if I did the DEX210s would have been gone awhile ago and I probably never would have gone with the rest of there lineup or even bought one of the vehicles brand new considering what they go for lol.

The suspension travel is limited in up travel in the Durango and I've had to go out of my way to correct it. The cars are just flawed in too many areas. I love the gearbox. That's the one thing they got correct. I originally bought the 210 because I wanted to run MM3, something that I couldn't do anywhere else at the time. Now it's the standard.
