    Bell crank mounts breaking

    I have a slash 2wd, with lcg conversion And have broken the mounts where the bellcrank screws into off the skid plate twice now. Any ideas or suggestions on how to stop this or where to get an upgraded skid plate

    The mounts are breaking during normal oval racing. No bashing or jumping

    Considering the abuse they can take while jumping and bashing I almost wonder if there is something binding .

    Are you using the correct screws? Are they correctly seating in the recesses in the chassis?

    Great idea and it should work well. Just use strong screws - definitely not stainless steel.
