I don't remember the website. I just did a quick Google search for the arms and ordered from the first USA based hobbyshop that had them in stock.

Maybe we should all bombard "Peanut" Travis Amezcua and see if he can give us any light on he subject.

Or see if Chris Doughty has any info.... Chris has been in here a few times. You can find Travis on Facebook????

JP Richards is already back with Losi, anybody know what happened there???

It is a shame what's going on. I have 3 DURANGOS and love them. They have all the adjustments of any of the new cars. Except laydown transmission. If you really need hat then get the 210f. Hopefully someone can figure something out.

I saw those ship out so you should be all set.

We have a ton of Durango Parts. So if you need anything, PM me and I'll see if we have stock.

For now I will stick with my Exotek version 210. Parts are a little harder to get but I have most of the stuff that breaks an honestly the only other car that I like right now other than my Durango is the Intech ER-12 2.0 Lite. It is similar to the Durango but the newest version isn't a direct 100% copy as its more like a Exotek Durango. It does suck with the parts but also sucks is my Exotek version Dingo feels as good as any buggy I have had in years so I hate to not run it. I like being different and especially when the different works so good to me. I don't care if others go faster than me I just want a car that feels good to me and my Exotek V3 feels excellent.

nothing wrong with that Wyd. Big thing is the vehicle works for you that's for sure. One vehicle that I always came back to for the longest was my Tekno converted D8. Loved that thing and would do all I wanted it to do. Only sold it to a friend when I went full Tekno at the time.

My buddy and his son are in the pickle right now as they run the MIP Losi 4x4 SC conversion and now MIP quite making it. They don't like the standard Losi 4x4 SC and tried the Tekno and don't care for it either so they are like stuck on what to do. I feel for them and totally understand.

Here is Travis's email. I sent him an email asking if he could explain what's going on with parts and possible updates for future 1/10 scale?

travis@team-durango.com

Wyd and Cain, right there with you. Have so many parts and understand these cars really well don't want to change now. Guess we will have to ride it out and see. The one thing I am thinking is with the new ROAR spec 12mm hexes being introduced, the ST/ SC would have to have some changes in a-arm lengths, drive shafts and turnbuckles to accommodate a thicker 12mm hex. Maybe we will see new SC/ST but matching something they already make in the Aarma platform but revamped for racing like what they did with the DESC10??

Who knows?!?!?

I reached out to Tower, asking if the Durango kits are discontinued and they said no. The "temporarily unavailable" status means that manufacturing and/or distribution has been suspended by the manufacturer until further notice or some other problem is preventing them from taking orders. Either way, it doesn't sound good.

hmm, maybe on the bright side issues with metals being too soft or overhardened (front shock shafts) are being fixed and instead of sending out kits with the problem they have decided to fix the problem and build a massive backlog of parts to distribute along with presenting a new pro team full of top contenders

Hey I can dream!!!
