RPM engineers reviewed a brand new Traxxas Rustler 4×4 and found the same problem we encountered on the Revo 2.0 – cracks at the body mounting screw holes. This vehicle had never been run and the holes were already weakened. If you’ve managed to pull any of your body mounting screws through the body or if you think it’s about to happen, we have the perfect solution to save you from ugly, thick body washers or worse, buying a new body for $60!
RPM Body Savers for the Rustler 4×4 are a simple, yet clever solution to solve that problem. We disguise our Body Savers in two separate ways. Out front, they look like molded hood vents while in the rear, they look like exposed sections of a roll cage. It’s a perfect way to camouflage their intended purpose and yet still keep the body firmly attached.
The way they work is straightforward; there are two pairs of screws holding the sub-frame of the body mounting system to the body in both the front and rear of the truck. Our Body Savers tie two pairs of screws together, dispersing the pressure of holding the body to the sub-frame over a wide area of the body. Even if the bottom of the mounting holes in the body are completely ripped out from prior crashes, our system still works!
RPM Body Savers are molded in black from our ultra strong, engineering grade nylons for unmatched performance and are sold with four Body Savers in each kit (two for the front and two for the rear).
Tech Notes: RPM Body Savers only work with Traxxas #6717, #6717G & #6717R bodies. They have not been tested nor are they guaranteed to work with any other Traxxas or aftermarket bodies.
