Default chasiss aluminum or plastic?

Hey everybody new to the forums so pardon if i posted in the wrong place.so heirs my problem i have a redcatracing volcano epx with a 2600kv brush-less and a hobbyking 100amp esc and the stock chassis broke so i super glued for a temporary fix and of course it broke again so the question is. Another stock plastic chassis or ...aluminum. Any ideas on plastic versus aluminum. I do know aluminum likes to bend sometimes but i think another plastic one might break. so advice. experience? by the way it broke right under the gear box up front right behind the front bumper. Might send pics later.thanks in advance.
