If you have the R it has plastic side plates with a spotting mount it. Or mount in front of servo or under the driveshaft

Plenty of places for it

ALright, getting ready to make an order after last nights racing/TQ/Win.

I beat up my rear skidplate, so i just took it off. Should i order the Brass skid or a set of Lunsford Ti turnbuckles? Havent had an issue with my steelies yet, and plan on upgrading the whole turnbuckle/ballend setup sometime, but do i NEED that skidplate>

Also going to order some 1* rear hubs, to try and maybe keep that rear end a little more planted.

Other than that, ran mine in the 4mod class with a 13.5 yesterday, ended up TQing and winning. Only thing i need to work on is getting the front end to stop popping up off the jumps. But other than that, the car is rediulously easy to drive and very very fast. Was turning some of the fastest laps of the night.

I got the brass skidplate... makes the buggy more stable and it's one less thing to worry about.

Just remember the brass skid adds I thing 30 grams of weight. Most that I've seen use the side weights for stability as they don't really drag the ass end of the buggy down.

Well... the reason i was going to order the brass one was to replace the plastic rear skid... it got ripped off, filled with dirt... everything.

Anyone have any better ideas?

I have a brass skidplate but don't run it, I prefer to run side weights, I do have 2 spare rear skid plated though. I guess I'll just have to change them often.

Does anyone think the plastic sideplates on the Spec version would make a noticeable difference? For $12 bucks I was thinking it might be worth a try?

I have heard adding the plastic side guards to the 2010 Spec kit helps immensly by adding a little more flex to it... might be worth it for $12...

so should i just order another plastic skid plate and maybe shoe goo it?

If you like the way the car works I wouldn't change it. Maybe run a couple layers of chassis tape underneath it?

Oh, im not worried about scratching... its the rear factory skid plate that you bolt thru to the bulkheads. I want to figure out how to keep dirt from clotting underneath it and ripping it off.

I chassis taped my car and made a little step just before the bumper with a small piece then have the big piece go over that to get rid of the gap, I also dremeled it just a bit so there is nothing dirt can get caught on....does that make sense

You can see the little rectangular piece right at the base of where the bumper starts and the main sheet goes over that, I had the main sheet go over the first part of the bumper but it wore off...dremeling down the bumper just a bit helps too.
