give these a try... and if you're lucky, there was a p-dub type bumper available at one time.

you did'nt mention is it straight or sideways, but assumed you hit another car car straightways then wider bumper would be good answer,
if yours is XXX-S G+ then it have bumper retainer plate, that would help foam bumper not deform too much on crash..

Check the following:
Correct meshing between spur gear and pinion.
Correct belt tension.
Drivetrain is free and not bound.
Diffs are not over tightened.
There are no stones/grit sat in the bottom of the chassis (remove the bottom cover plate to inspect.)
You are running the same pitch spur and pinion.

Errrrm, think thats about it!

Where abouts do you race? What kind of track is it? Twisty, open etc?! You need to give a bit more information so we can help you out.
Have you looked at what the other racers at your track are using? Look at some of the fastest guys cars and see what they are running.

Not unless you file or Dremel the chassis. I have GP3700 and IB3800 packs and I had to shave the slots and the battery strap to get the chassis to accept these larger cells.
