Hi, is there any way to fix a broken graphite chassis or do I have to buy a new one? Thanks in advance.

I think just replace it, make sure you don't get a xxx-s one, the xxx-4 is longer

XXX-4 chassis usually breaks at the front or rear where the shock towers bolt on. Very difficult to fix. I did a front up with epoxy and an aluminum brace which held for a long time. I just couldn't part with half of what the car is worth for just a new chassis. After I picked up a used one cheap, I couldn't wait to swap it out.
