    Rip rpm

    I thought it was almighty so I tested it on a light post

    The front bulkhead is cracked in half too but it stays together and runs fine for now

    .. sorry I can't get the picture link from my phone to work, anyways the rpm bumper snapped but is still somewhat intact

    How cold was it outside? Cold can sometimes cause even the most flexible plastics to be a little brittle in high speed impacts. I had an rpm bumper shatter into 5 pieces right around freezing, but I was moving pretty fast.
    Sit down, buckle up, hold on, pay me...

    Your claim is invalid with pictures.

    So you purposely smashed it just to see how it would hold up? That seems a little silly to me.

    Yeah I purposely did it and at 30mph on a chilly day I think the truck held up beautifully

    I was having so much crashes without even the slightest problem so I was like, "I'm gunna break something one way or another"

    lol only about $35 to see how tough it is, and I'm not even gunna bother replacing anything yet because it still runs perfect with a broken front bulkhead.
