I purchased my E Revo 2 months ago. I broke the chassis 3 times in less than a month. It has taken my mind some time to adjust to the incredible speed. I ran it into concrete pillar once, and twice into tennis court poles. They were unforgiving of my mistake.
So I decided to make a body that would absorb more front end impact. Something that would transfer a large portion of the shock to the rear spoiler mounts, because these are quite stiff. After 4 plastic prototypes, I tried metal and used a DVD player cover. I has done wonderful to absorb some head on front end impacts.
