SCX Steering

My dearly beloved SCX Volvo 850 was ambushed in the Goodwood Chicane by an idiot Fly Truck.
The steering arm snapped off the kingpin at one side.
I think it is too small to be glued.

Does anyone have any experience with fixing these things?
Can the parts be obtained separately?
Anyone any experience with beefing up the steering so it is less likely to happen?

I know my Volvo won't be everyone's favourite, but I really, REALLY like this car and similar models.
They drive realistically without behaving insanely and I very much want it operational again, just for my own pleasure!

I picked up a motorless Volvo 850 the other day. The plan was to use the motor from my shagged SCX Ferrari 333, but on inspection I found that the motor isn't long enough.

Do the SRS2 cars use different motors or something?

All sorted now,

I modified an old Scalextric motor to fit.

It runs brilliantly now
