RPM Front Bumper & Skid Plate for the Traxxas Slash 4×4

Feb 26, 2010 No Comments by

New from RPM:When Traxxas first announced the 4×4 version of the Slash, RPM customers immediately started asking us if our 2wd version parts would fit it. Sadly, that was not the case. Since then, we’ve been working hard to make all of those RPM parts 2wd owners love, fit on the newest 4×4 version.

Our three-piece front bumper / skid plate design for the Traxxas 4×4 is simple, yet strong, effective and highly attractive. We made it a three-piece design to give the Slash owner the option of full front-end bash-proof and crash-proof protection with the skid plate mount, skid plate and bumper installed or if they’re racing, they can remove the bumper and use the skid plate mount and skid plate as a light-weight alternative bumper / skid plate that sheds 27 grams (almost a full ounce) of weight from the front end of the truck. Once the race is over, simply reinstall the bumper and full bash protection is once again available!

Our Traxxas Slash 4×4 front bumper design eliminates the bumper support ring and the 4 screws behind the stock bumper while using a thicker skid design to supply the cushioning resistance a basher-proof bumper needs. By eliminating the stock bumper support ring, absolutely no frontal impact crash energy is transferred into the upper half of the differential housing. We supply longer bumper mounting screws as well, so any impact energy from down low has less of a tendency to pull the mounting screws out from the bottom half of the differential housing. With an RPM impact-absorbing front bumper installed, the energy transferred from frontal impacts will be greatly reduced as well.

RPM front bumpers for the Traxxas Slash 4×4 are available in three color options: black on black, blue on blue or a chrome bumper on a gray skid plate. We’re so confident in the strength and durability of these new bumpers that they too come with our unbeatable factory warranty protection.

RPM light canister sets (RPM #80982 & #80983) fully integrate with our new Slash 4×4 front bumper and skid plate, giving the Slash 4×4 that awesome Desert Racing Truck look and open the 4×4 up to the addition of LED lights for nighttime fun!
