Default I recommend a Penguin bumper.

I have one for sale, it's new and it's the best if you ask me. It's made of woven fiberglass. Won't bend down. $7.00 shipped.

Bent TC3 bumpers are one of the highest rated causes for poor handling on a newbies car. I've seen this waaay too much. And they wonder why their car won't turn in a corner. Get the RPM one. But watch out... too many crashes will bend this bumper down too.

I just learned about the bent bumper problem when it happened to myself. Pulled the car off and had carpet/foam/tire sause residue caked on it.

RPM makes an excellent Plastic bumper..but if you top it off with a P-DUB Racing TC3 foam bumper, I can guarantee your competition will feel the difference!
