Give that Traxxas Nitro or Electric Rustler, Stampede, Nitro Sport or Bandit added protection with the RPM wide front bumper. This bumper stands six inches wide and adds an extra 1-1/2" worth of bulletproof, protection to the front end of the vehicle. RPM designed this bumper with the backyard basher in mind by making it with our guaranteed unbreakable blend of nylons and is molded in black to give it that stock-looking appearance, or in optional blue or green to match the line of Grave Digger and Son-Uva-Digger chassis and body paint schemes. These bumpers will help reduce front end damage during head on collisions with curbs, trees, etc.! Nothing surpasses the protection gained when your Traxxas vehicle is protected with an RPM wide front bumper!.

Our r/c crazy 14 year old has been running and racing cars and trucks for about five years. He has this front bumper installed on a Bandit and Rustler and can absolutely attest to its ability to protect those vehicles and their parts. We keep a couple of these in our tool & parts box, and just put a new one one as an old one finally gives way or starts to wear thin.
We live in a community with blacktop roads and light traffic, so our son has plenty of time and space to overgear and practice high speed runs and jumps. The OEM front bumper was not as forgiving or as shock absorbing when those runs ended abruptly at a concrete curb, or when jumps ended with a nose dive. This front bumper takes those hits very well, and helps protect everything behind it.
Our property has about an acre of grass, dirt and hills (and trees...) so his cars get a lot of off road use too. Again, this bumper take a licking but keeps on ticking and we have not had to replace as many suspension and chassis parts since he began using it.
R/C running, racing and bashing continues to be an outstanding experience for him and that has been a blast to watch evolve. This front bumper has just helped that journey be a little less expensive.
Go for it and have fun!
I flipped mine upside down on my Rustler. It'll be angled higher if you install yours as directed.
Now when I hit something, the bumper slides the truck out of the way of the object, diverting most of the impact from the bulkhead/steering components/tires.
However it isn't going to stop the car from everything. Once when I was driving on an old tennis court the truck wacked a giant weed with a big stalk. I thought nothing happened until I turned it around and drove it back towards me; it wasn't driving straight. Fearing the worst, I inspected the damage and found that one shock absorber's top cap shot off, still attached, and leaked oil everywhere. Threads were fine, so I filled it up with 3 in 1, screwed on the cap, and kept on driving! Could have been a lot worse without this bumper.
I gave it 4 star cause it actually broke when I took it for a run during cold weather on snow. Hit the curb and it snapped in half but I guess it is expected as plastic gets brittle in low temperatures. BUT to compliment RPM, I sent it back to them and they sent me brand new one with no cost. I only paid for shipping back.
