During last year i used a lot of this skids on the rear of buggy, and was very happy.

Switched brands and tried again last race national level, and only bad results, the 2 of them i installed, got off from the front tip and ended being a drag tractor puller skid

Im not using them for now ...

+1 the buggy ones are awesome! I would love a set for the truggy.

I haven't personally had any issues with the skids or bumpskids. I run them on everything and have yet to have one peel back or pack with dirt. I've run gen 1 and 2.

I see that there are rear skids available for the O'Donnell rigs. Is there an estimate on when (if???) the Bump Skid, and XD rear skid will be available?

I am very happy with my skids and especially the bumpskids, even though I did have a single event where I wasn't so happy with the skids. I had problems with my buggy going noose down on jumps and even digging in the front in some rough fast corners. It tried everything with my shocks. Turns out it was my skid that had split and peeled away, making it work like a plow. So now I know to check my skids after every run.

Any plans for skid plates/bumpskids for the CRT .5/ SCRT 10?

The ones I have had for my past cars were always top notch! Especially the ones I had on my D8.

Keep up the great work!

The new XD line of plates do cure the "peel and plow" issues. You still need to keep in mind that they are to save new chassis not prolong the life of worn out ones and that you have to be carefull to not overtighten the screws. They are alot less sensitive to these issues as well.

Skid plates for the Jammin SCRT and Hyper 10sc are on the way and should be ready very soon.

Mud guards for 6 different models are on the way and should be ready in a few weeks.

Just in case you missed my earlier post....any update on XD skids, and front bump skids for the O'Donnell ZO1B / ZO1T?

Thanks guys for all the support. The 2.0 truck ones were a little tricky with all the curves and angles. They came out great though and fit like a glove. I'm sure you will like them.
