Default jato 3.3 bulkhead

hellow

i have a jato 3.3 about a month old and i was wondering if getting an aluminum front bulkhead is gonna be worth it.

i have broken the bottom bulkhead twice in a row and i figured sense it would be attached to rpm a arms and an aluminum chassis it wouldn't cause any problems. but i could be wrong sooo would it be better of that i go with stock and keep on replacing them when they brake or should i go with the alluminum and get it over with so i can stop replacing the little bugger?
i am not a huge fan of alluminum but seeing that rpm dosnt make it i guess i have no better alturnative and also does any one kno where on line i can get one cheep?

thanks

alum takes the energy and disburse it some where else on the truck.... so something else is gonna bend or break.

The ultimate way to fix the issue is to drive more carefully. Unfortunately, parts will wear stress and break. It happens. However, certain things like the environment it's run on etc can help a lot with parts breakage.
