Default simple cpe claw mod

I have been having problems with my claw chassis when in undercut and bound situations. The spring steel suspension would start to bend and could literally make the axles touch from even light bound situations where normal linked rigs would easily crawl out of.

What I did, was add another clamp to the spring closer to the edge of the chassis utilizing the stock chassis holes, scrape alum. strips and four 4-40 bolts. This broadened the leverage points of the spring to the chassis making the spring stiffer and harder to bend.
I put the clod in the same situations where it would bend in half and it has appeared to be cured. Even standing on the front axle the suspension would not bow.
