SCX Steering

1490 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  MK2-Escort
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!

Sean, that is an excellent deal - could not ask for better!
I'll phone tomorrow and get a couple.

But I'm still interested in whether anyone has any ideas for strengthening/reinforcing steering front ends . . .
I've seen some of those pics before Al, though you have added some superb closeups since my last look.
Bloody EXCELLENT work all round!
The trouble is you would have to charge about the price of three brand new slot cars just to cover the work involved! I would LOVE one car with that lot built in, really I would. I don't give a toss whather it helps or hinders handling, I simply adore the incredible workmanship.
