I have a different view on that bumper.. WHERE AND HOW MUCH
.


That looks similar to those T/E Maxx RPM bumpers they look shweet. I wouldnt mind getting me one of those but due to theunusually small amount of money i have.. due to savage and no job of course, i cant buy hop ups. Parents dont help either
. Oh Well.

alloy for show and plastic for go?? hmm not too sure about that!!


unless u have lots of money to keep on replacing the plastic stuff....maybe...but i know with my xfactor.. with the alloy.. it is ALOT stronger and more durable!!


the only other thing i'd get if i could would be titanium!

difference is X that you dont have landings from 15 feet. On a crawler alloy is good cos its stiffer and maybe more durable. But i am yet to break a single plastic part
andIve had the savy for a year. Thats a lot of bad landings

Yep and I have had some shocker landing too... the plastic just flexes and rarely breaks... alloy on the other hand, doesn't hand severe impacts very well.

Well firstly thanks for the comments


secondly the bumper and skids are Gpm gear ordered from mark at MRC ,fantastic price and service.


Truck was Purchased from Ace hobbies in the USA for $399 + shipping and $100 on my end for Tax(bloody ups) but it was here in 5 days unopened by customes and unmarked and in perfect condition - worth the shipping cost cause service was exellent --imo


The bumper looks awsome and is mostly for show , i donyt know if i will use it for bashin as my Dom bumper looks shocking and i dont want to keep forking out for replasement bumps, i think i will use the plastic one when i got out jumpin and so on it only takes 4 screws to change it over.


as for the skid plates they are there to be abused and to protect body


my dom which i can not get skids for is due for a new chassis very soon as i have wore away the front...














Thanks cruzn2

rb063 pipe, hitec 945 steering servo , venom temp, venom speed meterand ofna failsafe.
