The plastic retract support is so weak that I decided to use 2 pieces of 5x12x80mm hardwood rails to make a better one.
I carved grooves on the foam to accept the new supports.
Pre drill and attach the retracts, then hot glue it to the foam grooves.

I put the plastic support back to its original position and reglued the piece I cut from the new one. The rails will give more strenght to the system
The hacking weakened the center portion, and since I removed the inner gear doors (burnt servo), I used som CF strips to reinforce it.
