Default losi ten-t carb question

Does anyone know if there is a metal carb that will fit the motor in the ten-t.
I am not buying another stock plastic one and here is why.

The first carb started leaking after the first tank of fuel (new car) I tracked it down to where the fuel supply nipple screws into the carb body. Tried to call Losi but sat on hold for ever so gave up and bought a new one from A Main. Finally got around to installing that one. Started it up and took off down the road. (had not touched a screw). It would now longer accelerate so I picked it up and the part that connects to the servo rod had pulled off the carb as the factory had not tightned it enough. Then what did I notice. Fuel everywhere. And where was it coming from? The part of the carb where the nipple screws in.
Got through to losi this time and I got a "Sorry Man" No offer to replace.

So either I find a metal carb or this thing is toast.

Thanks for any help.
