View Full Version : Installed Slash 4x4 rpm bumpers, shortened front, and front body lowering.

I installed the slash 4x4 bumpers front and rear, but found the front bumper to stick out way too much, so I re-drilled the 4 mount screws and now have a bumper that does not stick out so much.
It also acts as a skid plate to protect the bottom even more, I although I might cut it down a little more.
I also cut the front body posts pretty all the way down as much as I can get it and still able to install the screws inside to attach the post.

I like the look of the rear one. It looks like it will function as a wheelie bar too.

Yes that bumper, I ve only used the truck for a few minutes to test out some batteries and the front and rear bumpers!

What exactly did you do to the front body posts? I cant quite figure out what you mean. I am going to do the same thing you did to my 2x4.

hi I just cut the front posts down and drilled a hole for a short screw to fit inside, didn't do anything to the back

Looks great. I plan on doing this mod with ours.

So you cut the actual pOsts where the pins go, or you drilled new holes by where the others were already Nd moved it Down like half an inch Or so. I'm special needs lol

I took off the post, used a dremel to dremel it shorter, then took a drill and carefully drilled out the hole where the screw goes in through the bottom of it to mount it back onto the body post mount.

I installed the same rear bumper. It does double as a wheelie bar just as I want it to. I have a rear slash bumper on my 2x4 pede that has worked great. I zip tied a peice of steel strapping to the underside of the bumper to eliminate wear on the plastic bumper caused by wheelies. That has worked very well. I need to figure out what I will do to protect the plastic on the rear bumper of the 4x4. Too many wheelies on the plastic bumper will wear it down and it will snap in a hard collision. The RPM rear bumper is only $12, but I try to save cash where I can in this hobby.

on my third pic you can kind of see the bottom, I purposely did not shave off the bottom of the bumper to use it as a shield

Must catch in reverse! Looks pretty low. I do like the shorter mounted look!
