Iv'e tried heating bent parts of a body with a hair drier, but just to get them back in there original shape. i dont know if it will make any difference, because if your racing in the cold the lexan gets hard and brittle just like almost anything else!

everything breaks! boiling is not a solution. the greastest solution of all is to stack up on spare parts.

Dunno about boiling nylon body wings, boiling is used to help a plastic part deform more before breaking, so it could well help, but they're already quite strong.

boiling it will give some softness to it providing you let it cool on it own accord ie leave it to cool in a room. rapid cooling from hot temperature can madfe the plastic brittle due to not alowing the polymer chains to form a long bond in the material. Look it up in an engineering materials book.
