Broken Mega-G front wings

I've had one of them break off and the 'down-plates' on my Penske body are slightly cracked. And I know I'm not the only person to have problems.

If superglue isn't working for you, I reckon there are other options.

I did this to my old Aussie Vineyards body last night:

It's a small piece of black polycarbonate packaging, cut to size and then glued to the underside of the nose. I filed a flat notch to hold the wing flat.

I used Shoo Goo which John F put me on to. Apparently it's the best thing to bond lexan. I've found it extremely strong, yet quite flexible, for gluing various bits on HO bodies.

For this, I filled up the front of the nose with Goo and squished the plastic sheet down on it. It has set very strongly in less than 24 hours. I did the side plates with the same stuff. They are a bit messy, but will clean up.

So - if you still have the original wing, maybe try some Shoo Goo (available from all good skateboarding shops) on that.

Or try the new wing. It is not legal at EAHORC, but you can run it at WHO and maybe (Tony??) in Super-F1 at SCHORC.

Or you could donate your old [email protected] body to us at WHO to fix up and pass on to some of our racers who have LMP Mega-Gs and are after a low cost F1 option. A low-denomination trade might even be possible

Its not a problem at SCHORC, we are not that a**l about things
I think that the EMA product is, MEK, Methylethylkeytone (Butanone), which an unpleasant material that has to be used with care and ventilation. It is used as a poly pipe solvent weld product, in the plastics industry, plumbing etc, it can be bought as a gel called 'polypipe solvent weld' amongst others, as a gel it is a bit stringy to use, but sticks pipes good!!

Part of the reason for starting the thread was to get some wing-less Champcars looking good again

I quite applaud the wing repair, and that was the nature of the reply, a full set of wings on the MG is a must imho, as the original national rule actually made it necessary to have a 'repaired' wing for it to run! And that is really my point.
