What has your weather been like? The last 40 days around here have been pretty damn cold. In my experience, Arrma's plastic isn't near as durable around and below freezing.

Its on a Kraton,but i believe there the same in the front end.The plastic version is sitting on the aluminum brace.I also copied the red piece on to carbon fiber and used a Dex8 aluminum front suspension holder( some mods required).

Maybe your hinge pin is bent causing the breakage?
Tower hobbies part number:TDRC8309 Team Durango upper suspension hanger & insert set.What you have to do to make it work:The Durango hanger doesn't work like the arrma version.It uses inserts and is captive from the other end which wont't work on the stock setup.Easy mod,requires two plastic spacers and two 4mm locknuts that fit your stock pivot bolt.For spacers i used quad blade adapters,i believe are 10mm od x4mm id.I used my vise to press in on one side and the nut just sets in the other end( the red bracket keeps the nut from falling out till you start the bolt).In the above photo you can see i also use the blade adapters to take up the extra slack.This system took out alot of front suspension slop/twist and with the shocks disconected i can tighten the suspension bolt now threaded into a metal locknut and its stays set!

IMAG0528.jpg IMAG0530.jpg I also had this happen to my typhon,but it also broke the back of my front differential housing case..so basically both supports for suspension arm. It happened on a track and I don't think I was bashing it hard enough for this major breakage to happen,but it was cold.
