The RPM Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer Front Skid Plate is a three-piece design. This means if you need access to your A-arms for maintenance or replacement, far fewer screws need to be removed to get to them since you won’t have to remove the entire skid plate. The lower portions of the skid plate can even be accessed without removing the body!

RPM has incorporated an upper compression zone on the bumper portion of the skid plate that allows a moderate amount of flex during frontal impacts. This compression zone absorbs significantly more impact energy than stock, reducing the possibility of internal damage from head-on crashes.

The RPM UDR replacement skid plate is stronger than the stock parts and backed by RPM's limited lifetime warranty against breakage - so there’s a significantly lower chance you’ll need to replace it due to an “oops” moment. Plus, the RPM version has a larger front radius to help ease transitions up and over tall obstacles, unlike stock that has a steep front angle with minimal roll to the front edge.

This skid plate also has three skid ribs that will help absorb abrasion damage, adding to the longevity of the RPM skid plate. Everything you’ve been wanting from a replacement skid plate for your Unlimited Desert Racer is finally here in a tough, easy-to-use American made and ready to abuse RPM upgrade.


  • Three piece design for easier maintenance
  • Upper compression zone for improved impact resistance
  • Skid rib for better abrasion resistance
  • Larger front radius for smoother transitions over tall obstacles
NOTE: The RPM Unlimited Desert Racer Skid Plate replaces stock Traxxas TRA8537 and is guaranteed to work with stock Traxxas components only. The Traxxas steel support (not included) must be transferred over to the RPM skid plate.
