Left rear hub snapped and hood pins


Recommended Posts

Do to my careless in putting the car down my left rear hub snapped right at the tire attachment to the rear axle.  I am trying to see if super glue will work

My left hood pin is also smashed do to my struggling with putting on the body.

 

Is there any way to buy replacement parts for the hood pins?  The super glue may work on the axle so I'm running with that repair for now.

I really would be surprised if superglue held the axle properly, or even epoxy. There's a lot of weight in the finished build.

Mine broke at the same point and I had to replace the axle part by partially stripping the model down.

Same here,  broke while turning the model over. Waiting for replacement parts for the axle. Will also have to undo a good part of the model to replace the parts. I also think due to the weight of the model that the axles should be metal.

It would certainly be more practical if the weight-bearing components were metal, as they are on many 1:8 scale models. Moreover, this also benefits screw-tightening and the overall quality of the finished vehicle.

if you have broken the pins you can live chat or email customer services and they will be happy to send out replacements.

I was contacted the next day by customer service.  I have not received anything in the mail yet but I am in no hurry.  I have built other company kits and I have to say Agora customer service is the best of all companies.  There is not even a comparison.
