I kept breaking the front bumper mount on my 1/16 Revo and Summit, so I got this 3 piece brace for two of my cars. It works in the sense that I have not broken any bumper mount ever since I installed this brace. However, it has its own drawback. First, the head of the mounting screws on the front and back were grinded to non-existence. See my photos. They got to this state in 2 to 3 skateboard park sessions, and this is the second set of screws I put on. Some of them had the head completely gone and the screw itself fell out. Second drawback is that the front mounting screws put a lot of stress on the front diff bulkhead. So much that two of the mounting holes on the front bulkhead were broken off. See my photos. So, it is not a perfect or final solution. Since I cannot find anything better, I have to settle with this for now. The good thing is that, with all these damages on the car, I can still bash with it. The bulkhead is $8 each, vs. the bumper mount 7015 and bumper kit 7235 are $16 total. So it is still better than not using it.
