    Suggestions for strengthening the front of the 1/16 chassis?

    I have a 1/16 Ken Block Rally that I've completely rebuilt into a VXL-3S powered terror. The only problem is, I've hit a curb a couple times, and broken the front of the chassis off. Are there any suggestions to strengthen the front of the chassis? I see lots of suggestions for the back end, but nothing for the nose.

    A little help here?

    Thanks,

    I find your lack of teepee disturbing.

    I know T bone racing makes a lot of various chassis beef up parts

    Lots of good reviews on the T-Bone plates holding these chassis's together.

    I'll have to check T-Bone out. I'm just concerned that it will be dragging the ground.

    On the flip side, better than swapping chassis AGAIN.

    Suggestions for strengthening the front of the 1/16 chassis?

    You can use one or two small screws going through the bottom of the front skid plate right behind the steering assembly and into the center skid. That way, in theory, it turns the delegates front skid plate and center skid plate into one not allowing the front of the chassis to flex. I have the 3-piece T bone racing chassis brace and found it to interfere with the rear a-arms. It won’t allow the rear a-arms to completely extend down.

    And, yes, it will drag the rear portion of the chassis brace on the ground since the bottom now sits lower due to the limited shock travel caused by the T bone brace.
