I'm not the only one who think this is one of the weakest points in the MR03 chassis. Even when upgrading to the SP chassis, it still is prone to breaking. Please find a way to re-enforce/strengthen it as it just becomes a tedious process of replacing the whole entire chassis for such a situation. This is the main reason I still chose to use my MR02 chassis instead of my 3 MR03's. The MR02 is a tank when it came to this situation. Please do something about this. I prefer something coming from Kyosho instead of just something made in someone's basement.

One of my friends kept on breaking the front end of his chassis. He started to use medical tape and glue in the corners and they would never crack. I never have had to do this and I ran plastic clips. Now I run the PN racing carbon fiber clips, and I think the front end does not flex at all now.
One way how I prevent them from breaking the sides of the front clip mount is by taking medical tape and gluing it to the sides. I also glue the tape to any part of the front of the body that flexes (usually where the tires hit).
I have seen a few chassis that has cracked at the front body mount at the track.
This is a quick reinforcement that should help if you do not run the stock spring placement. It still can be used with stock spring placement, but you will loose some adjustment possibilities.
Apply Tec7 or some other kind of strong flexible glue between the chassis and the spring plate.
