That "u" bend is more like a safety feature... if you upgrade to metal, make sure you get a better servo otherwise it wont really be able to push the metal in a bind

I almost forgot to mention the aluminum knuckles and chubs! Its a crappy pic but I made a "lift" bracket for my front bumper out of lexan. It raised the bumper up about 1/2" worked a lot better after I did that and it was the very first thing I did to mine. Its way different now though

Serves me right for not carrying the scaler in the car regularly! Didn't even end up buying a car either, double damn!!

Was it fun? Are there good areas? I've walked around before but never paid attention to potential crawler areas since it was before RCs for me, always thought it was kinda overgrown at least looking in from the street.

The wheel wideners are HR brand but I think they are only 5mm or 10mm or 15mm, if that works just let me know.
