Default bumper brace tube mod

Here is a simple and cheap mod for the weak bumper brace .

1.Make sure you get the center and right angle before you drill the hole with a 3/32 drill bit you need to be dead on or you could blow out the side wall.

2.Screw in a axial 3mm self tapping screw, been doing some serious bashing have not broke it yet.

Doing some searching and not finding much on these. I have one broken, are there stronger options out yet or best to get a stock replacement and do the screw mod? Thanks

My mounts haven't broke, but the bumper did where it attaches to the mount.

Now that is a serious bumper brace. Nearly a trailing arm for a trophy truck. Those should not fail. I broke on of mine, have not fixed it. I was going to build something but keep getting side tracked.

Nice repair. I will definately do this until I get the time to build a new steel bumper unit. Thanks for the idea. I used to thing duct tape was the fix all, but since I have been playing with RC cars, I have found CA glue and screws will fix nearly anything (except for a burnt motor).
