    RPM Wear Plates?

    So I am trying to find RPM wear plates for the Summit. What am I missing because I cannot find them anywhere. I can find a 3 piece set for a e-maxx but that's it. They also don't list them on the RPM website. Please help....

    I could of swor that someone said they had RPM wear plates for their summit. That link would work but its just a rear plate. Isn't anyone using a RPM wear plate on their summit here?

    Check out t-bone racing like jamann said. They have a-arm skids and full chassis skids. You can search this forum too for some more info on them. I think a couple of people have used them.

    I have the tbr a arms and chassis skid plates on mine. They work great and are holding up nicely.

    i saw the tbone bumper absorb a ten foot nose dive off a bridge today (my friend has a thing with bridges) so they seem to be well worth the money.

    Do the TBones skids still have the questionable soft material standoffs that beak?

    I thought that I read somewhere that they changed the standoffs. I could be wrong though.

    Yeah, that's what I was trying to validate as I thought I had read that somewhere too. Although money is tight right now I was considering getting the belly pan as the bottom of my chassis is taking a licking.

    the only break ive seen is a bridge beam impact (my friend has thing with bridges). cracked the a arm skid, broke upper arm, and cut into the lower arm. pretty sure without the skid it would have been much worse.

    yeah I stumbled onto the t bone racing products. they don't look as nice as the rpm wear skids though. I would say the TBR product is more of a shield. Im really hoping to track down these rpm wear plates but Im starting to think they don't exist. I was on hold with RPM for 30 mins yesterday to find out and never go through so maybe I will try again today.

    Can we use the E-Revo Front A-Arms on the summit?
