CSO front lower aluminium bumper

CSO front lower aluminium bumper

CSO release a front lower aluminium bumper for a range of 1/10th electric touring cars such as the CSO One, the Xray T3 and T4 as well as the RGT R2 and the MTS FF. The bumper weighs in at 12g and thus is substantially heavier than the stock composite part which can be beneficial when running low-grip spec tyres as it improves chassis roll during cornering. The bumper is a direct replacement and comes black anodised and laser-etched with CSO logos.
