I have dremeled out the tray where it was touching the brace, of course I didn't realize it until after I had already installed the aluminum brace. And yes the install wasn't perfect. My belief is...

There's nothing wrong with the stock bumper if you like replacing aluminum parts after they are all worn away.
The DE racing bumper wraps under the front and protects the chassis. Bumper/skidplate

conversion

Josh, I don't think there is a kit to convert to nitro, but the chassis is the 8.2 for the nitro layout. If you are looking for parts you can find them at www.rc10.com.
