Default Head Linkage Mods?

I have upgraded to RKH gribs, hub, anti-rotation collar, and MH swash. It adds a little weight, but I love the durability. The weakest link now seems to be the linkages in the head. Because linkage guides are now metal, a crash will put indentations into the plastic linkages. This turns into TBE. I'm wondering if anyone has tried modding the linkages to metal ones? For example, maybe reinforcing the linkages with metal from paper clips?

You do not want to make your msr rigid...there has to be certain weak points in the heli. If you fabricate metal links then something is going to break really bad in a crash. Possibly the 5n1.
