hey all my revo is nearly all back to life after breaking a rear wing support
done afew other mods too
see how i removed the small 3mm screws that hold the wing bracket and redrilled em larger and basically forced and screwed a steering rod into them
then made an alloy bracket (saw that from someone elses post afew weeks ago on here)
then i dod a similar job on the front
i drilled a hole roughly in the out edges of the front bumper suport and screwed in
some std pushrods then just bent em abit so the ends are close to the hole in the middle where i put a screw in there
overall looks pretty spiffy hehehe
didnt take to make as im rough when it comes to doing this type of work
i just need to tap the holes in the rear alloy bracket for the pushrod ends
and make the alloy brakcet bit nicer and clean the edges
hope it holds

That looks really nice!! Now go take it off a 20 ft jump and land on your wing or front bumper and tell us how it works! but anyway really nice job and very good idea for the front. I could never figure out how I was gonna do that...

i looked at the rear and then saw some of my pushrods would be correct length if i removed the smaller screws supporting the rear wing bracket so i went for it and it turned out ok
then tried to see how i can do simialr with front
I've got the rear standard brace mod and it held while landing on the wing. The wing mount broke though and I'd expect yours to break to. The impact force has to travel somewhere and the plastic has been weakened by making holes in it.
With that said it still is a valid and cheap option as opposed to snapping your bulkheads and chassis so I just might have to copy that front mod and see how it'll perform. Thanks for the inspiration!

yer the wings are a weak spot
my wing acts mroe of a wheelie bar at moment
its near worn away and one section flaps abit cause its broken heheheh
Never broke a wing mount - yet!
I've seen some people making the chassis a bit more rigid by doing something similar to this. They add pushrods between the shock mounts and the rear wing and the same on the front end. Your solution is nice because it seems a bit stronger (nice for bashers); people normally use only 1 pushrod; but it also makes the truck a bit heavier (bad for racers).
I've only got one in the back, here is what it looks like.
Here is mine. Sorry, me E-REVO is brushed.
