You should have made the top base plate a bit wider, at least to the entire width of the frame rail. It is similar to the skidplate that Peerless sells on e30tech. The problem is the frame in that area of the car is the crush zone, and not made to take any upwards force... so naturally, when you hit something hard enough, it will just bend the bottom of the frame up. The Peerless version plate that I saw, it took a hard hit, but it compressed the frame so badly that it smashed into and destroyed the oil pan!
