I would think there breaking at the shock tower right. On my CR I broke them on the hub carriers. I ran titanium and never really had an issues with breakage.

I think this was in reference to the old EA3 chassis, when they'd crack vertically down the battery tray sides. the tie-rod/ballstud fix kinda works, but there's still a lot of flex. I've run the heck out of the new EA3 chassis, with the dot ( . ) under the A, and i havent had any issue.

Dougg- I made a chassis brace for my XXXT MF1. I used a revo rear camber rod, but you can use any tie rod that is long enough with a captured ball ends on it. I mounted it on the back holes next to the rear part of the battery box and then onto the chassis, countersunk the holes on the underside of the chassis. Here is pic of my chassis, you can sorta see the chassis brace running next to the battery box. Hope this helps.

Doug, Jrod and Steve both did brake wens....I think they where both using the new ea3 with the dot...but we both know Jrod can brake/blowup anything...he also burnt up the wire thet goes from the receiver to the speedo...typical Jrod fashion....smoke then....pull it and cut the wires.
I think Jrods new nick name should be smoke....

Egg- not sure which Doug you are talking to... but that would be a bad spot for a transponder for a buggy , but yeah it's for my truck. I used to switch it between vehicles, that's why I made my mount like that .
