    Dude just email Nylint, they will send you a whole new truck free of charge. For some reason they dont stock replacement parts and would rather just send you a new rig. Heres my scorpion...

    spend some money on a good quality kit, and you wont have to worry about that kind of breakage.

    Mines got coil springs now..:D Mainly just there to keep the body level since the truck has no real suspension just a central pivot point for the axles.
