I am in search of a discontinued part, a servo box for an old 2wd Granite BLX. It lost a battle with a Fire Excursion tire. If anyone has anything laying around, has a link to a basher junkyard, etc. please let me know. Thanks!

Be tough to find any spare parts that old still laying around..

May have to go to the 3D printed route...

I would talk to @biggman100 as he is the resident expert on the old 2wd platform.

A quick Google search brings up one in Australia........................ https://www.hobbyrama.com.au/Arrma/servo-box-2013-spec but they most likely don't ship to the US and if they did it would probably not be cheap.

Your best bet is eBay, but, the only way you will get that part is to buy a complete chassis. Except for the main chassis due to the length, every other part for the Fury, Granite 2WD (but not the voltage), ADX-10, Raider and Mojave 2WD are all the same. The Granite 2WD and original Raider both share the SWB chassis, but the Raider XL, Mojave 2WD and Fury use the LWB chassis, however, you can buy one the LWB versions, toss the main chassis or resell it, and keep everything else for spares.

Thanks for all the input. The shop in Australia won’t ship to the US. I’ll keep my eyes open on eBay for a chassis, but I was able to rob one from my non-BLX granite and make it work. I was sure I tried it before. It doesn’t have to access, had to split it in half, swap the servo mounts, etc. Making progress.

The 2014 spec one fits? Those were available when I was searching for the 2013 spec.

None of the chassis parts are different (the only difference in the main chassis were the cutouts in the top of it, some were square, and some were triangle shaped) for any of the different years. The changes were more to the diff, transmission housing, and driveline, and things like bumpers and body and shock mounts. Everything else, especially all the main chassis parts, were the same throughout the years. The only way that i have ever been able to tell the difference between the years, is look at the transmission housing. The older ones had an aluminum motor plate (and metal diff, that was prone to issues), and the newer ones didnt. My last Fury (the one i lost in the fire), was a mix of parts from both 2013 and 2014 trucks, with HPI Blitz parts tossed in just to make it interesting. If you look on here, the original 2013 manual is in a post about the 2WD cars (https://www.arrmaforum.com/threads/arrma-fury-manuals.4/), and, the one on Arrma's site is for the newer cars, and a lot of the part numbers are the same. This is the original Fury, ADX-10, Raider, Granite, Mojave and Vorteks manual: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/934515/Arrma-Fury.html#product-ADX-10 which you can also find on here. There is a lot of info about the 2WD Arrma cars in the discontinued models section.

If the new one fits why were we all looking for the old one?

I just figured out just how wrong that statement was. The 2013 uses the box, the 2014 doesn't, and, since i always convert mine to the 2014 chassis, using these three parts: https://www.arrma-rc.com/en/product/chassis-battery-door-lwb/ARAC3806.html, https://www.arrma-rc.com/en/product/chassis-upper-lower-plate/ARAC3810.html, https://www.arrma-rc.com/en/product/steering-parts-set-2014-spec/ARAC9384.html I tend to forget the older 2 piece chassis even exists, because i haven't messed with one in quite awhile.

Wouldn't he need the short wheelbase for the Granite? Is that one available still?
