It appears you like to ride em hard cowboy, so do yourself a favor and get an aftermarket chassis that will hold up to your style of riding. Don't get another factory chassis and think that this won't happen again. Buy cheap -- buy twice.

It was a question because I was t sure if that was part of the frame or a section that was bolted on somewhere. That’s what I was hoping, guess not.
Good news is a frame isn't really any more expensive than a set of tires and rims.

If you have the skills to do it yourself with buddies in a few days you're back on the road.

Some would fix that frame, but for me personally it would just bug me. I would replace but thats just me. I would wonder what else is going on under the plastics too.

You have some decisions to make.

If and when the OP responds with more details of the crash and state of the car we will have a better idea.

Seems like pretty excessive damage to me if apparently that's his biggest problem. A arms and stuff should bend before the frame literally busts in 2.
Oddly they don’t look bend but I’m clearly no expert. View attachment 271990 View attachment 271991

That was an odd crash I will give you that.
Yeah, I always find a way to do weird stuff. 🤦🏻

Yup you have more damage than you can see. A good fabricator like CAB Fabrication in north Phx could cut the front end off and weld on a whole new section that is twice as strong as stock.

or you could replace the frame and have a crappy stock weak frame again.

It handled fine actually. I wasn’t nt really going fast initially, I kind of got off the trail near the canal/ditch and panicked and floored it to prevent from going in and the tree was along the canal and I didn’t clear it in time. Had I not floored it I probably would have been ok, it just started leaning towards the passage side and I freak. Rookie mistake I’m sure. yeah, I’m a little sore but fine.

Thats a whole 'nother level of car you're getting into with an aftermarket chassis. Way more $ and way more skill involved. And depending on where you live can make it more of a PITA.

My vote is stock cage with aftermarket kits welded in for reinforcement.

I don't think you need a racecar chassis because you may smash a tree again someday.
