This is an RPM Front Bumper Skid Plate & Chassis Brace Set, and is intended for use with the Associated SC10 short course truck. This is an all-new system quite unlike the stock version. This front bumper system is designed in three pieces. The most critical piece is the unique chassis brace that bolts to the bottom of the chassis using existing holes to help reduce the possibility of chassis breakage through frontal impacts. RPM achieves this by using 6 mounting points – both servo mounting screw holes and all four bulkhead screw holes. By tying in all 6 locations with a stout, molded nylon plate, RPM creates a perfect foundation for the RPM front skid plate.

The RPM front skid plate ties into the same four bulkhead screw holes as the chassis brace but uses two extra skid plate mounting holes to help disperse frontal impact energy over a larger surface area, which protects the front bulkhead much better than the stock bumper. Additionally, RPM eliminated the stock front bumper loop that ties into the front shock tower. By eliminating that piece, it allows the front bumper much more room to absorb impacts while transferring zero impact energy into the fragile front shock tower. The massive front curve of the skid plate does two things – creates a progressive impact zone that steadily absorbs more and more impact energy as the bumper compresses, as well as creates a great transitioning surface for those less than stellar landings or unexpected obstacles that “pop up” in front of the truck.

The final piece to the RPM front bumper is an already battle-tested front bumper. It is the same bumper as those used on the RPM Slash front bumpers. What that means is superb impact absorption combined with the ability to accept RPM light canister sets (RPM #80982 & #80983) for night time fun! Combine RPM front bumper light canisters with an RPM roof-mounted light bar set (RPM #80922, #80923 & #80925) and that’s a whopping 10 LED’s worth of night burning light!

Bought this product a few weeks ago. Can definitely tell this is a stronger product than the stock bumper. A friend has had his for years and doesn't even have a crack. Great product.
