RPM B6/B6D rear bumper & skid plate

See: RPM R/C products

RPM have introduced a rear bumper and skid plate for the Team Associated B6 and B6D. The rear bumper is tiny and extremely lightweight, yet will become the most valuable piece of equipment on your ride the first time that out-of-control guy slams into your backside! It weighs in at a minuscule 5.5 grams, however it offers some serious rear end protection. It is 2” (51mm) wide and extends rearward by roughly 1-1/4” (32mm) at a 45° angle. Additionally, it sits 0.095” (2.4mm) beneath the chassis. This skid area of the bumper lends extreme skid resistance to the back of that expensive aluminum chassis and helps reduce skid and impact damage to the rear of your chassis.
