Do you have an agent over here in australia for the skid plates? if so can you please let me know who they are so i can get some for my 808!

How are the plates held on? i thought they may have used longer to sanwhich them between the chassis, but it looks like they sit over the screws and the holes are there to clear the bolts so you can get the diff out without removing the skid plates?!?

So does that mean they are glued on with double sided tape or something different?

Cheers

Considering how long the Jammin cars have been out and how many people run them I don't understand why the front bump skids are not available yet. When will those be available?

Thanks

Jack, I appreciate your questions regarding the Jammin parts. We are currently working on alot of new stuff and I am sure you will be happy. Dave and Cherie both are working around the clock to get these products out to you racers at a blistering pace. Its pretty much just the 2 of them doing the work at DE racing and I feel they are doing a great job of shipping stuff out fast and getting new products on the pegs at your local retailer. Thank you for your patience.

I have the rear skid plate on my 8ight and it works great. I was interested in the front skid, but all of my wear happens at the apex of the kickup, and your front skid doesn't cover that area. My question is will it help that area even if it doesn't cover it?

I think it cuts it down as I dont think my scraped area has gotten any bigger since installation but it was kinda ugly before. I will mark that area with a sharpie before the next race & see what happens. Playing with it on a table top it looks like it will cut down on the gouging some but looking on a flat table is not the same as smashing into pot holes & jump faces,I'll let you know after this weekend. It has definitly stopped the wear at my front pin holder & front arms in the pin area for sure & now that I think of it probably made life easier on my front pins though they never bent before. For the price & ease of install I say just buy one & see how it works on your brand car,its way worth the money on mine.
