An aluminum rear chassis plate would not help. The stock chassis plate is not being stripped out. Rather, the screws are threaded into the main chassis plate and the gearbox. So, you need to change the gearbox case and/or the main chassis. The only reason why you would have to change the rear chassis plate is if it breaks, which can occasionally happen.

An aluminum chassis plate probably wouldn't work. There is a bunch of flex built into that rear piece, it has to be easy to flex so that the antisquat can be adjusted.. So, if you were to buy an aluminum piece, your t4 would probably run permanently tweaked after a few laps.

There are shreds of plastic coming out of the threads that are in the chassis plate,What would you recommend for upgrades to the rear so this doesnt happen.

Like the the other poster said, there are no threads in the rear chassis plate. The threads are in the gearbox, main chassis and front pivot block. The upgrade that fixes that problem is to make sure you use the correct screws and not over-tighten them.

If they're already stripped and you don't want to buy new parts...you can try using some 3mm screws instead of the the 4-40 screws. 3mm screws have a little larger diameter than 4-40 screws.

I did this the very 1st time I built up my B4. Yeah, make sure you are using the correct size screw. I accidentally used the 5-40 screws instead of 4-40 which caused the same issue.

And yah, try not to overtighten.

Good luck!
