    Aftermarket front Bumper!!

    Well, I've been keeping my eye out on the site. Looks like it has been released. Tbone front bumper, rear has been out for a bit now.

    I just finished putting my order in for the Front as they just released it and got the rear bumper as well.

    Thought I would let you guys know for those interested in getting one

    oohhh, FRONT BUMPER!!!!

    I installed my rear bumper and was taken that the curve was not in the correct place, you almost have to remove the stock bumper fron the car, I'm not sure this was intended or not, but when I screw down the back screws, it flexes to fit. time to research the front one!

    Edit:

    I just got off the phone with TBR and the intent was to remove the rear bumper when installing the TBR rear bumper...at least that is the way he has his rally configured there onsite. Front bumper fits over existing.

    Thanks for passing along the info. I'm hoping it will at least save my front bumper and body. Those are the parts that get scraped the most.

    Haha... this is funny (still cool, but funny too). Were buying BUMPERS to protect our BUMPERS... hmmm

    If it was a stock replacement that was better I could see it. But the whole point of the foam bumper is to absorb impacts so they arent transferred directly to the chassis. IMO, the rear makes sense, but the front will simply transfer impacts to the chassis much harder than the foam would have. Save your body, yes... but save your car, not as much as the stock bumper. I could be wrong, I love Tbone stuff.... have alot of it. But this seems like a step back IMO.

    Yup, I was thinking that as well before I bought it. Was it will save our body but put more strain on the front bulk etc...

    I don't really plan on barging into anything. LOL Well umm you know how that tends to go. I purchased it more in the sense of saving the under carriage while RC'n. I mostly take my Rally to open spaces. haha
