The problem isn't so much the chassis design or terrain IME, it is totally the driver!
The last one I did I basically built a strong around the driver and compromised everything else!
Simple, this driver will overdrive the chassis making it do things that it flat can not do! Well at-least according to PBB and the local club. "They" are of course wrong because I know the driver and 'They" do not!

To make the chassis strong enough I would place you in the seat and build around you... "IF" when I was done some weeks later and you could see out the chassis would not be strong enough! Short of that it is all about compromises!

I would look for parallel "frame-rails" and a builder that knows why they are sized differently.
