Default Hole in my intake tube

I have a Traxxas revo and have a small hole in my intake tube that goes to my carb. They are only $14, but is there a way to fix this? Patch?, Heat/melt? The truck still runs fine since the hole is so tiny, but i'm sure it is only a matter of time.

Ditto what Integra said: it's not worth risking your engine sucking in debris and potentially ruining your mill. $14 is a very fair price for peace of mind.

+1 just replace it, the tubing does eventually wear itself out...

Replaced it today. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't a quick easy fix for it.
