    Anyone know how to make the front end of the car stay together better?
    I've got Fracture, Mirage, and Dragstrip and the front end of dragstrip will not stay closed up..

    Anything I can do to fix that would be simply awesome!

    You could put clear nail polish on the inside part between the tires, and on the outside of the point part that goes inbetween the tires.

    Don't know what to tell you, as I haven't had any such problems with the toys from that particular mold.

    None of the other molds of it I've had have had that problem. Only Dragstrip..
    I've had it happen on mirage, but his head was sitting funky and popping it open.

    I wish I could say the same thing but mine looks crappy (Maybe I'll take a pick and post it) and is quite clearly sitting on the front spoiler of the car instead of the wheels..

    Looks like he broke down in his f1 race.. :(

    mine did that too, i just put pressure on the little bar that covers the false windshield for bot mode, after a few transformations, it will stay put now, seems that bar is more thickly painted on dragstrip

    It's definitely very annoying!

    screws up the whole look of the alt mode, just push carefully and firmly while holding the bottom, i find it easier to coax in with the gun in place, maybe after 10 times it should be fine, less pressure will be required to make it go in

    On mine I just push all the front pieces together hard as hell until it sticks together.
