Default Need help identifying parts

Hey everyone, so last thursday,i received my redcat shockwave in the mail. All i have to say is this rc hobby is in my blood now. I'm addicted!However, I've already trashed the right front suspension on the car. During break-in, i bounced it off a sidewalk at about 25 mph. The right front wheel hit just right apparently cuz it snapped what I'm GUESSING is the C-Hub. Not real sure exactly what all I need, but it looks like I need a new right front axle and whatever this part is that goes around the axle, which all i can find on a schematic that looks close to it is the c-hub. I'll also need the retainer pin for the wheel and a new wheel nut. Would it be better to order everything for the right front just to know that I'll be covered, especially considering no LHS's carry redcat parts around me? I'd have to try to describe to redcat over the phone what I need, and that won't be easy considering I'm pretty much brand new to the hobby. Or can I send the car back to them and they fix it? Not sure if they do things like that. Guess I'll just have to wait til Monday and call them. But I'll try and post a pic of the aftermath so maybe some of you guys can tell me what exactly I need. I just wanna hurry up and get it fixed so I can get to know her a little better! And I'll definitely be more careful that's for sure. I know it's only a .16 motor, but this thing hauls ass!! Anyways, I know this was a cluttered post with no real direction, but I was just seeing if that description rings any bells for any of you, and if it did, what you had to replace?

Ok, thanks you guys. Mike, I'll keep your number and you'll be hearin from me in the next few days. .... It appears the stub axles are fine. What I need is a new dogbone. The right front got bent a little bit. And the brace that holds the exhaust pipe in place will also need to be replaced. So I'm fairly sure I just need a new dogbone, c hub and I'm gonnna go ahead and upgrade to the tuned alum exhaust pipe (does that come with the brace?) . Shouldn't be too bad, if I can figure out how to get these little retainers out of the broken c-hub I should be good to go. I'll post pics in a bit.

Ok guys, thanks again guys. I've taken it apart now, and I've discovered that I will DEFINITELY need the c-hub, part 02015. I might go with the aluminum ones for a little added color and strength. Mike, I get paid thursday, so I will be calling you then. Youre in kentucky and redcat is in arizona, so you can ship to me faster, so you win right there lol! I've also heard good things about the way you conduct business so I feel good about it. Question though, isn't there a little metal pin that goes into the right front wheel on the shockwaves? I seemed to have lost it, is it really necessary? The other side doesn't have one. Does it serve a purpose with the 4wd system?

And if I order the tuned aluminum exhaust pipe, will it come with the wire type thing that holds it in place? And I'm going to go ahead and go with the aluminum capped air filter as well. Will post pics for verification shortly.

Horrible pic, but this is the c hub correct? It is snapped in half right now. The dogbone is bent as well, but everything else including the stub axles looks to be fine.

EDIT:Also, that aluminum ball for the steering link that's inside of it... will the new c hub come with one, or do i need to take that one out? If so, HOW do I get it out??
