Default Looking for help on a broken part.

So today I was enjoying a little off road and this piece snapped (I'm not sure what it is called on an RC car but in real car terms it seems to be apart of the brake rotor if that is any help), I cannot seem to find the proper piece on nitrorcx, do you guys know where I can order this part, Also the car is a tacon rally 1/12.
I have already purchased a new turnbuckle set I just can't seem to find the other.

Here's a few pictures.

No I cant help you with that. But I see your in the usa is that right. Please dont take this the wrong way I know that rcx site is cheap but those a cheap made cars also. So in the future if your gonna buy another car buy one in the country. Those over sea cars and heli and planes only get you into the hobby and are not very good at keeping parts. I hope this helps a little without making you mad. I had a buddy that got a car from them. And he been waiting like 3 months for one part. I did tell him the same thing too.

Still don't know what you're asking. Cuz, braking on electric done by the motor. Post photos when you're able. 10 post will be enough.

Spindle set Tacon calls it. Other models call it Steering Block. Where it broke check the steering servo, they usually strip gears. Replace with a MG/HT/HS/BB servo.

A RC car with a broken steering knuckle, covered in rice grains. Dear Sir, I would say that you've won the Internet today.

^

for the rice to work, it should be sealed (like in a baggy), as the rice will absorb moisture from the air, as well as the chassis, reducing effectiveness without sealing from outside air.

so to clear everything up about the pieces name

spindle = steering knuckle = steering block = front bearing carrier( sometimes just bearing carrier)

most common term is probably steering knuckle, or just knuckle.
