Exclamation revo 3.3 crack

Hi I just bought a new revo 3.3 and let me tell you it is great. I would recomend one to anybody interested in rc cars. A few weeks after having my car I noteced that the part were the fuel and air meet ( excuse me for not knowing the name I am new to the sport) was leeking fuel, so I unscrewed the little nob that you use to adjust the fuel air mixture and I noticed that it was striped. So I purchushed a new carburatar assembly(was not cheap) and installed it. I noticed there soon after that there was a crack on the carburator body. I do not know what to do. Should I buy a new one for almost 50 bucks or coat the crack with some epoxy. please help.

Where the carb attaches to the motor, when you tighten up the screw don't over do it because it will crack carb and that might be the problem. Just a good snug and it shoulod be good.
