    Wider Bumpers - Are they available?

    Was wondering if a wider bumper (front and rear), was available anywhere for these trucks? Trying to protect the corners of the truck a little more especially the back corners.

    Steering arm rubbing drive shaft

    Noticed this weekend that 2 out of 3 of our new slashes the steering bellcrank arm that attaches to the servo arm, rubs the drive shaft when the wheel is turned all the way to the right. Is this normal? The drive shaft has worn a groove in the steering arm also now.

    Completely normal. People use that when selling their slash 4x4s... they say "so new it doesn't have the line on the driveshaft!" As for a bumper, I don't know of any.

    You should set the end points of the steering just short of rubbing. The directions are in the manual.
