Sweet Rig! I love the machine work for the diff pieces. I think it's called a truss? Just like full scale.

diesel,,,yeah the skid really helps if you like to bullnose your way up the side of a rock without bending stuff,,and it really stiffens the axle on the opposing angle,,it can interfere with some angles but ill take the trade off,,i have hit rocks at full throttle and only scratched the skid
