It's not weak, As you become a better driver you won't have a big issue with it.

Never had an issue with b4/t4 t-plates, even with some lousy landings. I just replace them when they start getting really beat up.

Also,

Stiffen up your rear chassis. Running 20 weight shock oil in the back of a T4 will cause you to chassis slap everytime. (Got oil weight from another post of his).

But in my racing, I've only broken 2 T Plates, and that was in a fool around after the big event, Big Air contest.

Actually, it does. This is not a known weakness for this car. If you are breaking them by landing jumps, you are deficient in more than the obvious spelling, grammar and common sense.

Either you can't drive worth a shit, can't wrench worth a shit, or both.



My guess is both.
