Well I bought the RPM skid plates, and I don't like how it leaves part of the transmission uncovered, whereas the stocker covered it nicely. Kinda stupid of RPM to leave it exposed like that if you ask me . Any simple solutions to use both skid plates like the front & rear? Looks like i'd have to grind down the grooves on the underside of the RPM, but that might cause some wiggle room.

Pictures please...may have the wrong parts
What model of E-Maxx do you have? There are 2 different sets of RPM Skid Plates for the E-Maxx.
R4lly GT8 | Backsl4sh | Sl4sh MT | Sl4sh | P4de
Here is pictures of the RPM 3 pc skid plate kit for the 3903/3905 and 3908 E Maxx. It leave a portion of the tranny exposed but not enough that I've been able to do any damage. You gotta figure that more that 50% of the time you are moving forward over terrain and obstacles. Buy the time the front skid plates slides over rock or something, the next place it's gonna hit is the middle portion of the center skid plate.
I got the right parts, it's just like M n M's. I do a lot of "crawling" over rocks and logs so my underside gets beat up...somethings bound to get hung up in there eventually. I know i'm always pulling stuff out from the back
Sounds like a good time to start fabricating a custom skid plate that covers the remainder of the tranny and drive shaft.
with the rpm center skid do you still use the Traxxas skid under it or not?
I dont use the center stock skid either only front and rear. I know with the center wear plate it doesnt cover the whole drive line but neither does the stock even less there so i think overall RPM did ok on that area could have maybe went all the way but how would you bolt it down secure to benefit really

the main reason I'm asking is because I don't have the stock center skid and wanted to know if I needed to order one to use with the rpm plates
you will be a ok with the RPM wear plates. enjoy as well

alright awesome thanks guys
If you do crawling actually the rpm skids will not help you since they take clearance from your truck. I am not big fan of these skids (even though I have in my Maxx), but just wait to see many people bashing my opinion....
Not enough space here
I agree they do take away from clearance that is no debate to me but they do work and are a better buy than alum. Or just keeping stock.
