Racer Battery box replacement

Does anyone know if you can by the battery box replacement Shell? As I commented in another post, Even new, my battery box felt a bit wobbly at the front. It wasn't anything to really worry about. When I got my Dust cover, you have to remove all of it to get the front of the cover over the box. Well after taking the bottom cover with the speaker off, I saw there were 4 screws holding the body on, two in front and two in back with a "bridge" that goes over the shaft to tie the box to the shaft. Well, one of the front two screws had been put it slightly crooked, and I could see a small piece where the screw, screws in was cracked off, and the screw not really doing anything. Obviously, the person who put it together saw it, and just didn't bother to bet another Shell on it... It's again, tight as it was new, but has that wobble in it. I'm not really trusting just 3 tiny screws to hold it on, and am afraid in a short time the remaining one will give way and let the box drop. I know it's. a common part, and they must have extras, for replacement, but I don't find any place to order one from, or how to order... Anyone have any Advice... I should have taken a picture when I had it apart, for those that have not seen inside. As they say a Picture says a Thousand words....

I replaced mine when that bridge you mentioned broke. 3 of those 4 screw posts were snapped. I emailed Dilek and she sent me another for free since my Racer was still under warranty. So even if your warranty has expired, at least you know they have the part on-hand.

Here's the thread of my replacement experience.
