This is an RPM Front Bumper Skid Plate & Chassis Brace Set, and is intended for use with the Associated SC10 short course truck. This is an all-new system quite unlike the stock version. This front bumper system is designed in three pieces. The most critical piece is the unique chassis brace that bolts to the bottom of the chassis using existing holes to help reduce the possibility of chassis breakage through frontal impacts. RPM achieves this by using 6 mounting points – both servo mounting screw holes and all four bulkhead screw holes. By tying in all 6 locations with a stout, molded nylon plate, RPM creates a perfect foundation for the RPM front skid plate.

The RPM front skid plate ties into the same four bulkhead screw holes as the chassis brace but uses two extra skid plate mounting holes to help disperse frontal impact energy over a larger surface area, which protects the front bulkhead much better than the stock bumper. Additionally, RPM eliminated the stock front bumper loop that ties into the front shock tower. By eliminating that piece, it allows the front bumper much more room to absorb impacts while transferring zero impact energy into the fragile front shock tower. The massive front curve of the skid plate does two things – creates a progressive impact zone that steadily absorbs more and more impact energy as the bumper compresses, as well as creates a great transitioning surface for those less than stellar landings or unexpected obstacles that “pop up” in front of the truck.

The final piece to the RPM front bumper is an already battle-tested front bumper. It is the same bumper as those used on the RPM Slash front bumpers. What that means is superb impact absorption combined with the ability to accept RPM light canister sets (RPM #80982 & #80983) for night time fun! Combine RPM front bumper light canisters with an RPM roof-mounted light bar set (RPM #80922, #80923 & #80925) and that’s a whopping 10 LED’s worth of night burning light!

A must have for the SC10! I love this bumper! Installed it before I ever ran the truck. It's super heavy duty, and the skid plate ties into the servo mount screws to brace the chassis at the narrowest point, where they have been known to break, Problem solved! Don't even think about it... just buy it!

must have very good quality plastic very tough stuff bought shortly after i got my sc10 ive had some pretty gnarly crashes and it still works nicely

Definitely a good product. But something that I overlooked is that the chassis brace does take a bit of ride height away, maybe a tad over 1/8"? I may have still gone with the RPM one, but I wish I had considered the T-Bone Racing one as well.

If you enjoy having your sc10 chassis stay in one piece, get this. This also costs a lot less than a new chassis. Yes its ugly, but it works. I took my sc10rs full speed into a skinny tree and bounced back about 5 feet. Kicked it back over and I was good to go again.

A must have!! Have had some really bad head-on hits with objects, and simply bounced off and kept going. Great product.

Awesome bumper. I have crashed straight into a boulder and the bumper takes it like a pro.was easy to install. A must buy.

Far superior to the stock bumper. This bumper is heavy duty. For the diehard race tuners out there, this bumper assembly is about an ounce and a half heavier than the stock assembly.
