The product is designed to protect the areas of highest wear, and you are slagging them off for not offering "bumper to bumper" protection.

Please, give me strength
I thought that it was obvious but my post was 100% sarcasm. I am more than happy with all of my DE products.

I think the Gen2 bump skids should be long enough to put all four screws from underneath. The reason I say this is that the current bumpskid tends to bend away from the chassis. Just a thought. Otherwise, I dig these skid plates.

Accept my apologies.

In hindsight, then it does appear sarcastic, but the lack of emoticon threw me, especially at half 5 in the morning when I posted that

No problem. I was actually going to put some emoticon's but I never use them and I didn't know which one was appropriate...how about this one

Default Bump skid-Kickass Rear skid-Sux!

Just my experience the front bump skid is great, one of the first things I buy for any chassis. I used them on a D8,MBX6 and XB808 with great success. The rear skid is a different story. Any snag -rock-pipe stake-nail-edge of wood ramp-ect will pull it off or bend it down. I have even had rocks and dirt get packed under it. Sometimes I replace 1 or 2 during a race. I am done with the rear skid and have now ordered a aluminium skid. But will keep on using the bump skid I love it. Just being honest not trying to bust on the product.

i use the front skid always. i have started to not use the rear since they came out with gen 2. the original i never had a problem with, but with the new ones they have a tendancy to catch. i will probably be switching to an alum. rear myself.

Default 3rd gen rear plate

I had one rip off and cause my rear bulkhead to flop around during the 20 min main. Very annoying. I liked the 2nd gen plate, but the 3rd is crap....I will save them for clay tracks. Please re make the plates or send me some 2nd gen plates. Unhappy customer.

Yep, I am having more issues with the new one as well. They will pull off before they wear out, the old ones would wear until they were down to the chassis. I had a new one pull off during a race with plenty of thickness left.

It is very strange that you guys are having such issues with the Gen 2 parts. I still have plenty of the Gen 1 line. Contact me through www.deracing.net and I will see what I can do for you. I will also look into some of these issues, but I feel more people are happy with them than not.

Any one have feedback on the new 'xtreme Duty' skids.
Just Got my first 'new to me' truggy (mbx6t) and wanted to protect it. UPS truck bringing today all my goodies which includes front bumpskid and a set of XD skid plates. I didn't realize some were having issues with the rear skids so is the new XD an improvement on this problem?

Thanks
