Default Wide bumper for HPI Pro 4?

Hi,
Anyone know where I can get a wide front bumper for the HPI Pro 4?

The little bumper is comes with doesn't offer enough protection. I know the other HPI makes full size bumpers for the other Pro cars but I don't see it listed for the Pro 4.

tnx

BRP TC3 bumper works great. You'll have to modify it some, but it works like a charm
