Default Baja Exhaust Problem

I have a Baja 5b with a 29cc motor, 8000rpm clutch and the HPI Baja SS exhaust installed. THis past weekend while running it, the exhaust header completely snapped in half.[sm=angry.gif]
I didn't wreck it or hit anything hard at all. Is this a common problem? If so, whats the best way to not make this happen again?
I saw that HPI makes a steel header to replace the aluminum one on their website. Is this the best fix?
I really want the exhaust protected instead of hanging off the rear of the vehicle as I do like to occasionally run it like I stole it!

This is why HPI came out with the steel header do to all the problems with the aluminum ones.
