    Definitely one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-Mai...gAAOSwGotWs7SM

    And depending on which arm broke - probably a set of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-Fro...wAAOSwPXdZcQ5f OR THESE https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-Rea...wAAOSw--1Ws7l4

    And possibly ONE OF THESE: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-Fro...EAAOSw~oFXK6AJ OR ONE OF THESE: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-Rea...sAAOSwGIRXZryT

    And maybe ONE OF THESE if it feels tight or rough when you spin the attached prop with your finger: https://www.ebay.com/itm/ATON-Quad-R...53.m2749.l2649

    Great Traxxas video explaining step by step how to replace the mainframe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cks-n-aA86M but be advised - the bullet connectors for the motors don't come apart as easily as it looks in the video. I've found that 2 pair of needle nose (one on each side of the connector) with a spacer of some sort in between - allows you to apply a reverse scissor action that easily frees the connectors. Just be sure not to damage the insulation on the outside of the connectors - you can slide a piece of heat shrink tube or similar over each nose of both sets of pliers for extra protection.

    Man, that sucks. I just broke one of those arms and if that happens, you have to replace the entire main frame. It is also likely you broke a LED Lens. To replace it, you have to take apart everything and put all of those components on a new mainframe. Also, when you perform the replacement, make sure all of the wires are tucked into the groves of the main frame and are not near the holes for the screws for the lower frame. If you don't, you can severely damage that wiring. As Ghost said, there are some really good tutorials on how to replace the main frame.

    Part Numbers:

    Main frame- #7923
    Front LED Lenses- #7951
    Rear LED Lenses, clear- #7955

    All good advise here , And yes the 3 motor connections do come apart pretty hard ... a added note , make sure when you put them back together you may need to re- crimp them some to get a good tight connection. If it's loose at all you risk having that motor stop briefly while flying ( Not good !)
