This is a optional RPM 3-Piece Skid Plate Set, and is intended for use with the Traxxas T-Maxx #4908 and E-Maxx #3905 monster trucks. The extended chassis rails of the newer versions of both the T-Maxx and E-Maxx would not allow the original center skid plate to bolt up to either of these trucks without modification to the chassis rails. After quite a bit of prodding from our customers, RPM now has a new center skid plate and skid plate set designed specifically for the T-Maxx #4908 & E-Maxx #3905 trucks.
Unlike the stock center skid plate, the new molded center skid plate extends over the predominance of the chassis rails with better than 4mm of bulletproof RPM protection! The molded curves of the skid plate perfectly mate with the chassis support rails and act as a reduced-friction transition surface that prevents objects from hooking the stock rear skid plate. Other great features include: deep recessed screw holes help eliminate damage to the mounting screw heads, a matched grooved finish from the front of the truck to the rear and provide outstanding wear and impact resistance. The center skid plate provides a more solid tie between the two chassis side rails for added support and rigidity. Additionally, since the center skid plate runs the rearward length of the chassis side rails, less dirt and debris will be forced into the rear skid plate area of the chassis, improving drive line durability and drive shaft bearing longevity.
Please Note: RPM skid / wear plates require the use of stock, plastic skid plates, bulkheads, & (for center skid plates) chassis braces. RPM skid plates will work with most aftermarket aluminum front & rear skid plates but RPM guarantees the fit only when used with stock parts.
Tech Notes: This RPM center skid plate is not compatible with T-Maxx 1.5 & 2.5 models, or the standard chassis E-Maxx.
