GREAT skid. I got 3 races (a 3rd/ 2nd/ and a win) on ONE skid. Thats almost 2 1/2hrs of hard run time on the skid, probably got another 2 1/2 hours of run time on it.Great fit. Also you use the original screws. one great things is that the fit well enough to not allow mud or dirt between the skid and the chassis. Best out there IMO. they lay almost flat to the chassis so your ground clearance isn't effected.

X2 on the DE plastic's....there super thin and take a Beating.....3mm seems too thick for skid's....Not to mention the added weight.

and imo u dont need a front skid either...pointless really.

Wow, if the weight of 2 skid plates makes a difference in the handling of your buggy, I think ya might have other issues.

yes,, it can. And the E-bay ones look like they will act like a brake when landing.
