We have a ton of Durango Parts. So if you need anything, PM me and I'll see if we have stock.
Thanks. Now Critter in on top of my search list for TD parts. NJ is closer than CA. Lets see how long it takes to USPS to deliver... LOL.

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.
I am the same way... I do have my complaints about TD but I do like the cars. I had all of them except the touring car. I had slowly cut back to just 5 and my VBC Firebolt. I like different and "exotic". Its funny to hear people say "VBC Racing? never heard of it". I just builded my 210f and changed to a 17.5 set up for carpet. I am not going to experiment when I already have a good "dirt" car.

You will be happy with it

If I could have justified it based on the amount of racing I get to do I would have bought another, tried to get a buddy to buy one here on a heck of a deal with the parts supply issue stopped him.

Funny thing is now we got word that we may be getting an outdoor track that is basically local next year!

I always thought the VBC Firebolt was a pretty cool car. Actually next weekend I think I will see a friend run his. Will be the first time I ever saw one run.

fingers crossed that someone, somewhere will start making arms again ( 3d printed, alloy, plastic.. whatever ). Hard to believe that Hobbico would not ensure a supply of replacement parts for a car that is currently for sale and was only released a year ago ( Dex210-v3 ). None the less it's disheartening not knowing the future of the brand.

I sent two emails so far. Next step I'm calling my sales rep (that won't help as I already know she won't have a clue so then maybe I can go up the food chain a little higher to someone who might have a clue). Not sure why is such a big F'ing secret or mystery. Just step the hell up and let the customers know what is going on why that you need to see to screw us customers over like your doing.

anyone heard back from Travis at all? I know its probably reaching but I did get a message back from him in the past so who knows maybe we'll luck out?

Honestly guys, I really wish they had just kept there pro team as it seems like things are basically the same as before, except now without a pro team.

Looking to get my dex210 rebuilt for carpet this week hopefully a practice session will be coming soon.

I emailed RPM a while back when I had my v3 and they said the reason they don't make parts for them is because they don't do well with Durango merchandise, but they were going to pass my concern forward to the R&D department.

I had the VBC last year until our indoor track shut down and I got rid of it.... Now I wanted a 2wd buggy and since the future of the 210 is uncertain I went ahead and got me another VBC. It is a very good car. I used to whoop@$$ in stock class, but now ill be running mod hoping for the best...

Interesting. I had a look at RPM's site and apparently they do make arms for Durango buggies, just not for the Dex210 (for example they make front arms for the 410).

wonder if posting on the facebook page would be a good option too. They do seem to have someone posting updates there.

As much I would like official parts, if you are really SOL then you can always resort to using B5 arms on the front ( post 17558 a few pages back ).
