Not good here in the USA either. All the good parts are gone. They have been gone for awhile.

If you do find what you are looking for, and want to pursue endless searches, a tranny swap was done by a couple of dudes on FB with a Losi 22S SCT, and ECX Torment gearboxes. I say that, because the idler gears are weak on the Evader RCs. I've lost count how many of those darn things I destroyed before the Brushless Evader came out.

I used to own 5 of those Duratrax Evaders, why 5? Because they broke all the time and parts would constantly go on back order, so I was forced to buy spare rollers to get parts and would stock pile parts when they came back in stock. Eventually I got so frustrated with the brand I would start calling them "Duratrash" and would eventually sell off all 5 of those cars and never looked back!

IF you can find Losi XXT spares, the quality of their plastic is far superior and worth buying where the XXT is 100% compatible with the Evader which was a direct copy of the XXT, but the hardest part to replace was the chassis which often broke at the front bulkhead mount.... if I was in your position, I would cut your loses now and sell the chassis before you get any deeper in the whole with it
