RPM Rear Bumper Mount BLACK for Traxxas 2WD Slash Rustler Stampede Bandit #80902
This is a rear bumper mount from RPM, intended for use with the Traxxas Slash, Stampede, Rustler and Bandit 1/10 scale electric vehicles. After hearing numerous requests to look into the rear bumper mount on the Traxxas Slash, RPM has found several issues that could use their special touch. Those same problems were encountered on e-Rustler, e-Stampede & Bandit vehicles using the stock wheelie bar mount. The problem – the stock mount uses only a single screw on the gear cover side to hold the mount in place. That causes a hinge effect under rear impacts causing the slotted area holding on to the rear skid plate to pop off after an impact, leaving the stock bumper/wheelie bar mount hanging under the chassis. The RPM solution…An all-new bumper mounting system that eliminates all of the problems encountered with the stock version.
The RPM rear bumper/wheelie bar mount has two mounting holes on the gear cover side and three on the motor side – that’s two additional mounting points to eliminate that annoying hinge effect mentioned above. The additional mounting screws help disperse impact energy into the transmission case over more surface area, reducing the possibility of damaging the case significantly! The new RPM mount design means no more slotted parts hanging below the rear skid plate – ever! The RPM mount tucks up quite nicely behind the skid plate for better rear end ground clearance.
