Default wraith 1.9 chassis fix?

Has anyone come up with a solution for a broken front frame rail other then replacing it with a new one and then using one of the preventative measures out on the market. My chassis rail is broken and it would be cool if there was something out there to buy that would fix the broken piece. i have no front bumper now due to the broken chassis rail.

I will prolly just get replacements as i doubt there is anything out there like this but ya never know..

Thanks

I just broke my frame just behind the bumper also. I just bought it and took it in my front yard and crawled for 20 minutes and bam broke. Not happy and replacement rails are on backorder. Not COOL

i broke my og wraith cage so many times and at the time i broke the last set of rails they dident have anymore parts in stock so i went with the steel cage that was the start of my unsatisfaction with axial also why i started building my own rigs from scratch that cage alone disqualified me from running my wraith at axial fest so i stoped going i feel axial is leting its customers down by relesing junk that we all know is easy to fix from the factory
that broken frame should be warrented being its a manufactures defect they should just give you a new one if they dont have replacement parts available i would raise hell with axial then horizon till the problem is fixed

Contact Support. This is apparently a known issue that they're aware of:

Wraith 1.9?

Preventative fix. Full aluminum brace over the tube chassis that stops any flex. Also an aluminum bumper mount as the stock plastic one is very flexible.

The product pages should be up early next week...

Default wraith 1.9 chassis fix?

So I broke my 1.9 Wraith frame (probably do to a 5 accidental fall off a retaining wall), this was at the rear tube frame rail on the passenger side. This happened about a week before attending Axialfest 19 and although I put in a warranty claim with Horizon the frame kit was on back order status. To remedy this issue I drilled two small holes in the broken frame tubes and used black thin gage wire to tie the broken section back together. Since then the back ordered frame kit showed up a couple of days ago, long after Axialfest was over. It was interesting to see that this kit included the new revision of the beefed up front end section, looks like they have strengthened the front end tubes by adding extra gusset of molded plastic close to where the screw hole in the lower front tube fastens to the shock tower. I will hold off on using these parts for now as my repair is still holding strong! Id use this repair in the field too, keep it in mind for you Wraith owners!

More effort than I put in mine, which is broken in the same spot. I chose to ignore it cause replacing frame rails is too much work

Is it going to replace the panhard mount or brace it?
