We've actually never once had a cast pan get damaged. At least I've never seen one. The fab pans, I've seen three come back: two from drag cars that threw a rod into the side and deformed/cracked a spot in the side, and another guy who got into a catastrophic accident and a curb damaged the pan.

We weld the pans, fabricated and cast. They both weld very nicely.

Just an FYI, our cast pan is aluminum. Each is also heat treated twice to attain T6 to maximize strength and toughness. No one else does this (likely because of the cost it adds), but it does make for a lighter and stronger part.
