i had two cen matrixs buggies and i had the same problem. bad design IMO. but i kept having them break so i took shoe goo and filled in the gaps in the plastic and it seemed to help but i only ran it once after doing that. you could try that. take a piece of plastic lay it up against it and then fill with shoe goo.

but as far as it comes to aluminum ones i havent seen any.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ium-Losi-8B-8T This one is aluminum. I was thinking to try it for my Matrix TR. I don't know if it'll fit though, so for now, I'm continuing on with a MBX6T wing mount. Most use the Mugen wing mount on the Cen truggy, so it should work on the Cen buggy too.
