Default Broke my MERV already...

This little thing has maybe six runs on it. Two speed runs, three dirt/grass bashings, and this last one. Drove it off the roof of some sheds on the property (8', 9' roofs) and did some front-flips. Had a friend 'place' the truck on the roof, built up some speed, and did flips and stuff off the roof of the sheds. There's also like a small hill made of dirt, and the top is paved, but there's like a 2" solid thing of pavement at the top. When the truck hits it, it launches it into a front flip.

Anyways. Not sure what killed the wingmount/bodymount, but something did. Didn't notice it for a while after it broke, but here's some pictures of where it broke, and of a muddy truck.

But, anyone know of a good wingmount/body mount that will stand up to this?

RPM is one of the best for durability, some say its better than aluminum cause it flexxes more and its cheaper... RPM to ME is like duct tape+aluminum foil+rubber band+epic

So err...let me see if I understand. You are 'jumping' off a 9' roof, and also slamming into a 2" concrete barrier to do front flips?

I would suggest investing in a lot of cheap replacements, because I don't know of much out there that can withstand that kind of punishment for long. Other than that, I would suggest custom building something to dampen the impact if you insist on punishing the poor car

That's what I consider mild bashing. We couldn't find a suitable 15+ jump/drop, so that had to make due.

I'll replace things as they break, the stock chassis is pretty durable.
