Default T-bone skid plates

These plates are very good, much better than de plates.
Warranty as well.

Nothing is better than the DE plates. My 2 cents.

The DE skids are good but I have worked with Rich at T-bone racing on some of his skids and that is all I will use. They are made out of Delrin insted of plastic and that alone makes them last alot longer. I run on a track that is very hard on chassis and skid plates I was going through 1 DE skidplate every 2-3 races and with the T-Bone skid I have had it on for 5 races so far and it is still going strong!!!!!!!! So now all that touches my buggy and truggy is T-Bone skid plates.

Yes they make one for the the xb8 and he is unsure if they will fit the xt8 and the 808, but he will be getting a 808 chassis to make some. Also if you want to you can pick up the current skids and if they do not fit they will refund your money. If you have any further questions you can pm me.

Do these chassis plates cause your buggy/truggy to do wierd things or get hung up while you're jumping?. I found that to be the case when I used the DE plates. I want to preserve my chassis, but notat the expense of performance.

I just ordered one of the wide bumpers for my ST-RR that I converted to a Short Course truck. I hope it works like I want it to.

I have notice no adverse reactions with the skid plates. They are ground to a angle like this / to keep them from hanging up on rocks and the ground.

I have run them on my Kyosho 777, mp9, and ST-RR. Along with doing the testing on the zx-5 skids. All of them ran awsome!!!
