    my lhs owner told me about this trick for broken arms. Layer kleenex and CA glue wrapping around the arm for a few layers and it creates a fiberglass effect. I did it on my revo 3.3 and it held up really well while the replacement was on order.

    you can also wrap fishing line (braided is prefered) around the the broken area very tightly and cover with glue. It will hold it togther very nicely.

    I used gorilla super glue on my revo 3.3 lower arm without wrapping anything around it and it lasted 2 months and i kept bashing. It never broke but i replaced it anyways. Im more than sure you wont have any problems until you get a replacement.

    Here is the mail with RPMs aproval.

    Dear Mr. Thomas Pettersson,
    Thank you for sending us your suggestions for additional RPM products. We are right in the middle of a couple of rather large projects right now so I'm afraid I don't know if nor when we may have an opportunity to build 1/16th scale Traxxas parts. Please continue to be patient with us and hopefully we'll get a chance to build something for you in the not too distant future.
    Take care and thank you for your interest and support of RPM products. If you have any other questions or comments, please feel free to send us another e-mail.
