Default looking for Evader Ext2 parts

recently was Gifted a old Evader Ext2 from my Local HobbyTown that been in there service department for 5 years and a Co worker sold me his working Evader ext2 for 25 as well. Unfortunately i destroyed both transmissions when I installed 1 12T titan and 1 red cat 550 motor which I had as extra parts from my brushless upgrades.
My question is where can I get Spare parts that are still around I tried ebay with no luck.

From T.E.C. Part 2 (The Evader Coalition)...

Another thing to check, that could be your issue, is the motor mounting plate. It is made of a softer metal and can get tweaked during a harsh off balanced landing. I've never had an issue with the motor mounting plate, but others have in the past.

If you get the EXT up and running like you want, then (like EXT2Rob mentioned) you might want to look at tracking down a DTXC7340 Duratrax Differential Gear/Case Evader EXT for future use. That part is the hardest to come by IMO. Finding a complete DTXC7338 Gear Diff Assembled is next to impossible .
I just tried to search for any diff cases again since you posted. I found nothing on the first page of search links. The only option would be to buy another EXT for a parts donor. Even if you would find a couple of used Evader EXT platforms, the trannines could be iffy. IMO, it's not worth it to be taking a chance on used Evaders anymore. Sorry.

The only chance I'd take on fixing up a Duratrax RC, like the EXT, is finding an Evader Brushless platform with an all metal tranny. But then again, you would be paying for more parts than you would need. Cut your losses and buy something with parts support . If you are liking the stadium truck look, I'd be lookin at something along the lines of an Associated T4.1 ~ T4.3 or HPI E-Firestorm.

And Losi just came out with their new stadium truck. The Evader is a dinosaur. Get something new.
