Tech Notes: Stock rear bumper mounts (Traxxas #3677) will not work with RPM skid plates. To retain the use of a rear bumper or wheelie bar, RPM #80902 or #80905 must be used. RPM skid plates are designed for and only guaranteed to fit a stock Traxxas Slash chassis and chassis components. RPM rear Slash skid plates are completely redesigned, making them stronger and much more durable. Their unique design uses three chassis mounting points instead of two, triangulating the chassis mounts on the truck, in turn spreading impact energy over a larger area. This is done using a hole already located in the stock chassis, meaning no drilling is required. Also eliminated is the cross-tube styling of the stock skid plates in favor of a solid flat skid design with a large radius at the transition points to allow the truck to slide over obstacles that would have normally caught on the stock rear skid plate. That means no more direct impacts to the lower rear end of the truck, which is the primary source of a broken chassis.
As a final design touch, RPM added four thick skid rails on both the front and rear skid plates which reduce sliding friction while improving the overall durability of the skid plates and the truck. At the tail end of the rear skid plate, a skid rail runs from side to side to protect the lower transmission screw and rear bumper mount while providing a smooth transitional surface.
