Here it is at last! , just like the rear mod this one requires traxxas part # 2336X, Stampede turnbuckle, it also requires a very small hole on the body post/shock tower as shown below. (dont make too big of a hole so the screw can fit nice and tight)
very fast and easy mod, but please, to all young hobbyist dont ruin your truck while doing this, im not responsible. I got about 2 extra red aluminum and one metal that im willing to trade with somebody else for one Erevo pushrod (for the rear brace mod), a couple of bearings ( Click here ) and some traxxas connectors. Happy Bashing!

If u like it then I say cool.
nice job....Here's my variation of the same mod. I used a piece of carbon fiber rod glued into a rod end for the shock mount side and drilled a 3/8 inch deep hole into the body tower that the other end of the rod simply inserts into. I have a rcsolutions rollcage that does a great job of stiffening the chassis but I figured the front and rear braces are simple to make and very little added weight so why not?

candy76man your ERBE is just perfect !!!
3.8 Mashers ( wich are discontinued ) + RCSolutions roll cage + aluminum rockers + aluminum shock mount + front / rear chassis braces = awesomeness !!!
I want an RCSolutions rollcage so bad but they charge me an arm and a leg to ship it to Canada so the cage would cost me something like 175$ shipped !!!
revos need more bracing than that! I have been building revos for a while and can tell you that the motor mount is junk. Also try bracing from under the chassis. If done right you will end up with piece that covers the front driveline. should mount to the rear part of the skid plate( part that bends to the driveline) drill 2 holes that are side by side and mount a piece of material that you can find. I like 7075 1/8 thick and 3/4 wide. The in a vice bend the other end so that it is on the same plain as the transmission brace. drill 2 more holes side by side and you have a bomb proof brace that aslo procects the under side of your revo.
I see in the pictures that you have upgraded the axles. I hope yuo still have the old ones. I have made some really cool drivelines with them. Here are some that use revo parts.
