Skid plate crash test

Yesterday I did a short but intense crash test to the new ACD skid plate I'm helping to develop.
I hate to do it, every “clonk” it hurts to me but I don’t know another way to try it.....
The marks in the aluminum are evident but it did it's job.
Even so, we must modify quite a lot the original design: it’s too low and wide, it must be closer to the engine, needs a foam, must change the rear bolts, etc.
But considering is the first prototype was a good start
