    Front Suspension Axel Carrier

    So i recently cracked my front left axel carrier and i was wondering if any of you fellow merv owners have any cheap solutions i tried epoxy a few times and it doesnt wanna hold it together i would just buy one but at the moment i dont have the few bux it costs to get it. So anyways, any cheap solutions would be appreciated.

    i use ultra-glue, it glues anything! i forgot to say that i wrap the breaking point with lcd tv cleaning cloth, to give more strenght to the joint, and aplly more ultra-glue! this should work fine!

    If you don't have the money for aftermarket go to ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-1-16...item2325d750c3

    The front takes on a lot more abuse than the rear. I would attempt to swap out the front for the rear on the opposite side, it might have a better chance surviving in the rear than the front.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
