It's hard to make a truck like that more durable, the parts are a bit weak on it, and there are very little/no aftermarket parts to make it stronger out there. Your only option is to make/have made some custom parts for it. Other then that, if you're looking for more durability, you really would need a new truck. The ultima is just too old.

The ultima was a good truck in its time but I agree with the above... Kyosho parts are hard to find so you might want to think of either a T3/T4, XXT/XXXT or the Duratrax Evader St. Any of those would have great support for parts and are just as durable if not more than the kyosho.

I hate to say it but if you want aftermarket and good parts support you might want to replace the ultima.
