Default My new T-Bone Racing skids!

I just got my new T-Bone Racing skids in and I thought I would share some pics... I didn't really think that they would cover this much area, pretty awesome! They'll see some action this Sunday

Looks like you bought the Monster design. Any reason you didn't go with the 1/8 Pro design?

I hope that shovel on the front end doesn't hook something and rip your four gear box screws out.

IDK man, I kinda like the extra protection that its going to give my arms all the way around! +, it reminds me of the real size stuff used in Baja racing too...

Here's the smaller versions. They were listed under the 8ight buggy but will easily fit the truggy.

Nice.. I may switch to the small rear skid if the big one gets in the way for any reason..But, I have to admit, I like the snow shovel front skid

No doubt....you better go down a tooth on the CB to account for the extra wind resistance from pushing that thing around the track!

Seriously though, let us know how they work out.
