RPM Baja Rey Ford Raptor front bumper & skid plate

Made for the Losi Baja Rey trucks with Ford Raptor body shell is a new front bumper and skid plate set from RPM. The company incorporated all of the key design features from the original RPM Baja Rey bumper and skid plate into this new version. A key improvement moved the skid plate from between the chassis plate and differential to below the aluminium chassis plate. This move solved a couple of problems. First, the aluminium chassis plate now has some serious RPM skid protection where it had none before. Next, and more importantly, it allowed the designers the freedom to create a flex zone on the skid plate that would allow more impact absorption in impact situations, ultimately saving owners from costly repairs. RPM redesigned the bumper as well, creating an additional flex zone that allows the bumper to compress under extreme impacts, yet return back to its original shape once the impact energy has dissipated. This flex zone protects the more fragile front differential and chassis plate since the bumper now absorbs the impact instead of transferring that energy into the chassis. RPM also made the bumper thicker than stock, meaning it can take more impacts over the entire width of the bumper without failing. The bumper is designed and produced in the USA and built from RPM’s nearly indestructible blend of engineering grade nylons.
