Don't crash...don't break!!
No...seriously. I use to have the same problem as you, I haven't improved my driving but I have done a mod. If you go to your local electronics component shop you can buy those PCB boards (fibreglass). Cut one out to the same shape as the upper bumper and epoxy the two together. Don't cut any holes out the middle and before you epoxy, stick some of those carbon fibre 'look' stickers in the hole position (just slightly larger than the holes- not all the way across).
This will give you a massively stiff upper bumper. Since doing this mod I have had zero breakage! Some people like to use a more flexible upper bumper, but this will cause more load to go the the front tongue of the chassis, which is even more expensive!
Alternatively, you can just epoxy two original upper bumpers together, this is just a bit more expensive!
After doing this mod you will have to use longer screws to hold down the piece and use shim to shim the front body mount posts...don't forget the longer screws, otherwise you will strip the gearbox threads! Good luck!!
