This is a optional RPM Front Skid Plate, intended for use with the Traxxas Slash 1/10 short course truck.

RPM front skid plates for the Traxxas Slash are designed using the same principles used when creating the rear skid plates. The ultimate goals were to create a front skid plate that simplified maintenance, improve durability and improve the appearance of the truck. These skid plates far exceeded those goals!

The RPM front skid plate features a new bell crank mounting system that eliminates the need to remove the bell crank every time the front skid plate is removed. RPM accomplished this goal by using a pair of posts that press into the chassis of the truck and another pair of posts molded into the skid plate. This sandwiches the bell crank between the skid plate and chassis and supports both the upper and lower portions of the bell crank, reducing steering slop and giving a more precise feel to the steering system. This system simplifies maintenance and eliminates the annoying problem of the bell crank screws popping out of the chassis support holes after an impact to the front end.

The RPM front skid plate also uses a triangulated chassis mounting system that uses a support post in the center of the skid plate to bolt up to a pre-existing hole in the stock Traxxas chassis. This third hole not only adds some serious strength and durability, it adds some much needed structural support to the bell cranks.

As a final touch, RPM recessed the screw heads of the front two flat head mounting screws deeper than the stock skid plates to help reduce damage to the screw heads.
