Default Brushless Truggy Feigao Magnet problem

Ok, so I took my brushless truggy out to the track and put in a few laps. It was running good, with good temps (135 degrees on the ESC, 140 on the motor and 107 on the battery). The thing was completely unreal, faster than any nitro car out there, popping wheelies down the main straight, just awsome power. Then nothing, the car slowed way down. I could hear the motor spinning but nothing. uh-oh, blown diff, stripped spur, snapped rotor? It turned out to be the notorious Feigao separated magnet syndrome. Now my question is can this be fixed? I did some preliminary research and some people stated they had success using JB weld to glue the magnet back onto the rotor/shaft. A techie at CC recommended green loctite (#290). What do you guys think?

Ambient air temp - 100 degrees (SoCal in the summer)
gearing 12/46T
Feigao 8XL
Cen Matrix TR Arena (Modified truggy)
MM esc/with fan
TrueRC 4s 8000 mah lipo

ive never had experience with this kind of problem, but my guess is JB weld or loctite would make the rotor very unbalanced, it might work as a temp fix, but it would probably rattle itself to death in time.
