RPM Rear Skid Plate BLACK for Traxxas Slash 2WD #81242
RPM rear skid plates for the Traxxas Slash are designed to eliminate the frustration of broken skid plates and chassis. When a stock rear skid plate fails, it can rip the rear shock tower mounting screws out of the chassis, causing a catastrophic failure usually resulting in the rear end sailing in a different direction than the rest of the truck. With RPM skid plates mounted, that problem will be a thing of the past!
The RPM rear Slash skid plates are completely redesigned, making them stronger and much more durable. The unique design use three chassis mounting points instead of two, triangulating the chassis mounts on the truck, in turn spreading impact energy over a larger area. This is done using a hole already located in the stock chassis, meaning easy bolt-on installation. RPM also eliminated the cross-tube styling of the stock skid plates in favor of a solid flat skid design with a large radius at the transition points to allow the truck to slide over obstacles that would have normally caught on the stock rear skid plate. That means smoother driving experience over bumpy terrain and no more direct impacts to the lower rear end of the truck, which is the primary source of a broken chassis.
Notes:Stock rear bumper mounts (Traxxas #3677) will not work with RPM skid plates. To retain the use of a rear bumper or wheelie bar, RPM #80902 or #80905 must be used
