Default Need help with a New Bright MXZ sled (with photo)

I have a problem, I have had the sled for literally 6 hours and it broke, and I for the life of me cant find parts for it. Is there a parts source or is it just a paper weight now?

I broke the ski off the trailing arm. That white piece of plastic that also has the steering assembly on it.

No I dont. It broke right where the Ski bolts up to the trailing arm.

Well I epoxied it back together, and it broke fairly easily. So this r/c sled I got is now a freaking paper weight, sucks.

Well I tore it apart and this is the part that broke. It holds the ski on.

other than checking ebay, for these kind of toys there realy is no parts source, these are not hobby level.
i would try screws maby? and epoxy must sit for more than 24 hours before its fully cured and strong, and sometimes it still needs more time.
possibly build your own skis and mounting bracket? a few people have done stuff like that for there RC cars and planes, it would at least let you fix it, be strong possibly and even.
