    I assume you mean a rear wing? Stick with the plastic wing. The carbon fiber wings crack easier, and cost more. Metal wings wouldn’t last long at all.
    Proline wings can take a beating but you can occasionally break one, Traxxas wings hold up well also. Was it cold when you broke it? Cold and plastic don’t play well together.
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    Throw the new plastic wing in boiling water for a few minutes, it'll make it more flexible. I do this to all my wings now and haven't broke one since I started.
