it looks like you hit something hard. and you may have had some missing screws, or they could have been loose. your gonna have to take almost the whole truck apart now. what did you hit?

well, this proves plastic is stronger than metal.

That is a weak spot on the savage design... It should have some cross bracing up front, or a metal base for the electronics. That is a long distance from the engine/trans plate to the front diff assy w/o strong support.

Not the first time I have seen that on a Savage.

When you rebuild, check on ebay... Someone sells cross braces for that vulnerable part of the design.

Sorry mang!

Just take off the Vertical plates and stick them in a vice to try and straighten them out. But I don't even know if that will help!

I would make some home made titanium braces that supported the plates. They would each be put in between the plates. That would probably fix it.

what you could also do is buy the bottom support that goes to support the front of the truck in aluminum. thats the black plastic thing that you have screws going into the side of and bottom of.
