Default RPM Wide Front Bumper

I'm thinking about getting this. Am I correct in assuming that it mounts to the mini skidplate on the front of my XXX-T?

Does this actually help? It seems it would do little because most of the instances where you break some part in the front is because you clip a wheel and break an a-arm. Just curious...

if you want to install it, just remove the existing skid plate that is there....but you don't need it, it's really not going to help all that much anyway and it makes you look novice....

My next question was does everyone think that the RPM bumper makes you look novice. This is the first impression I get.. just checking to see if it was just me...

I won't get it. This is just some crazy thought I had in my head that occasionally happens

NONO....the RPM small skid-plate is great! LOSI's stock ones are great also. The pro's have no problem using them, so....

I was just saying that the HUGE bumper looks kind of novice.

The wide front bumper doesnt look novice at all. People that think it looks novice are the same that wore summer shoes during winter and dont wear helmets when riding a motor bike because it looks ''kewl'' that way.

The rpm wide bumper will DEFINETLY save your a arms and protech you in case of front impact. I know tons of racers that have it and are really happy with it.

If you're fast, looks don't count.
