A lot of racers who drive a 2WD Team Associated SC10 cut down the rear bumper on each side to keep it from catching something on the track and potentially cracking their SC10 bodies. Thanks to RPM’s new rear bumper racers will no longer have to do this, plus they they can increase durability and they can use the optional number plate to achieve a more realistic look. RPM has also released a new rear skid plate for the Team Associated SC10 4×4 that will help to eliminate chassis damage. Check out all the details in the press release below:
The RPM Rear Bumper for the Associated SC10 2wd has been extended further rearward by almost ½” over stock bumpers, moving it into the primary impact point out back, thereby reducing the likelihood of a rear impact damaging the body. We also raised the top of our bumper to help protect the body when the truck flips over in a crash. Additionally, RPM SC10 2wd rear bumpers have removable mud flap mounts so mud flaps (sold separately) may be run on or off without having to modify the bumper.
Every full sized short course truck racing today has a rear number plate (a feature not yet found on any current R/C short course vehicle) so it was only natural that the RPM SC10 2wd Rear Bumper should have that option as well (number decals not included).
Our rear bumper also has mounting points for an RPM #81030 Tail Light set (sold separately). With a set of light canisters on an RPM SC10 2wd front bumper and a set of RPM tail lights out back, the fun doesn’t have to stop when the sun sets!
RPM SC10 2wd Rear Bumpers and our Mud Flap and Number Plate Kit are manufactured in our extremely tough blend of proprietary materials and are backed by our industry-leading warranty. Each kit comes with all necessary mounting hardware and instructions.

RPM Rear Skid Plates for the Associated SC10 4×4 add an element of protection not present with stock components. The stock rear skid plate does not sit below the level of the chassis, leaving it exposed to impacts, sliding and grinding damage. That is no longer an issue with an RPM Rear Skid Plate installed. RPM skid plates add approx. 1/8” of chassis protection to the bottom of the truck to help eliminate that type of damage.
At 2” wide, our skid plates are also the widest skid plates available offering the maximum amount of protection possible. We’ve also eliminated the upper screw mounting hole. With that mounting location gone, rear skid plate installation and removal is as simple as removing a single screw, which also makes sway bar adjustments that much quicker because the skid plate no longer interferes with access to the sway bars.
RPM SC10 4×4 Rear Skid Plates are molded in black and backed by our industry-leading warranty protection for unsurpassed performance and durability.
