To help reduce skid and scrape damage, RMP have introduced new front bumper and rear skid plate for ARRMA and Durango 1/8 and 1/10 vehicles. First up is the rear skid plate. The areas most prone to damage are at the extreme ends of the chassis and the RPM rear Skid plate protects the back end of the chassis plate with 4mm of RPM engineering grade nylons that are not only extremely tough and durable, it also slides up and over obstacles much easier than aluminum. The leading edge of our skid plate has been rolled to a thin edge to reduce the likelihood of it catching while the rear is a full 4mm thick for a long-lasting skid plate built to handle some serious punishment.
Next up is the front bumper and skid plate. It is structurally engineered to add much needed impact-absorption to the front of the Kraton / DEX8T, dramatically reducing the amount of impact force from a crash that gets transferred into the chassis. The two-piece design incorporates a 4mm thick skid plate with 1.5mm skid ribs to the front of the truck, extending more than 1-1/2” (38mm) in front of the chassis and protects the front of that expensive aluminum chassis from skid and impact damage. RPM then bolt a huge, 3/8” x 1/2″ x 6-3/4” (9.5 x 12.7 x 171.5mm) curved oval bumper on top to help protect the body as well.
Each RPM Front Bumper and skid plate is molded in black from our exclusive blend of engineering grade nylons for unmatched strength and durability.
