Default I gots a few questions about Tmaxx parts...

Okay first off...I have RPM A-Arms, bulkhead braces, and skidplates on my sportmaxx, but I am still breaking bulkheads quite often. What are your views on aluminum vs Titanium vs plastic? I know plastic they say is better cause its cheap and it breaks when aluminum would just bend out of whack. Titanium, who makes some? Are they that much stronger than aluminum? Or should I keep plastic and let it be the weak link of the truck? Also, the RPM skidplates that go over the stock ones...the front doesnt help the stock skidplate from just snapping in half. Will the RPM skidplateswork if I buy an aluminum front skidplate? Or once again should I leave it plastic? I want everyones opinions on things...

bulks, could be made into aluminum, with either 7075, or 6061 i believe... i would go with 7075... because it is stronger, and as for titanium i have never seen them... As for skid plates, aluminum is nice but, if you crash hard once and bend the skid... it si going to keep bending to that position all the time.... i like the plastic skids...
