Slash 4x4 Front & Rear Shock Towers
RPM shock towers for the Slash 4x4 & Stampede 4x4 are about as strong as
they can be, keeping your suspension moving freely without added flex.
However, under extreme crash situations,
the nature of our proprietary materials allows it to give slightly,
absorbing that impact energy to prevent damage to the shock tower and
reduce the amount of transferred shock energy to the more fragile
differential cases. Our material then returns back to its original shape
almost instantly. No other material can do that!
RPM shock towers retain the large dust cover ribs that
overlap the tops of the differential case, providing an extra layer of
protection against dirt and grit not found on many aftermarket shock
We werenít solely going for looks either. RPM body mounts are just plain tough! We engineered new, larger ribs into the mounts to provide extra rigidity and support for the body while keeping weight to a minimum. We mold these body mounts in black from our proven-tough blend of engineering-grade materials, which provides extra durability and impact-resistance in the most extreme situations.
Included: Each kit contains two body posts, one body mount
bracket, two spacers and two M3 x 16mm mounting screws. Two kits
will be needed to complete one vehicle.
Tech Notes: RPM Body Mounts can be mounted in either the front or rear location on the Traxxas Slash 4x4 & Rally. They can only be used on the rear position on the Stampede 4x4.
* Using both RPM spacers requires longer screws (M3 x 20mm) Ė not included.
Nerf Bars for the Traxxas
Slash & Slash 4x4
has once again stepped up to make the most durable and well-designed nerf
bar for the Traxxas Slash and Slash 4x4. The RPM nerf bar
eliminates the stock hook-over-the-chassis that supports the nerf bar and
replaced it with a structural cross rib running parallel to the chassis
for optimum rigidity and anti-deformation
characteristics. By eliminating the hook, installation is easier; the nerf
bar doesnít have to be deformed to get it in position and the nerf bar
no longer pulls on the side of the chassis when it takes a hit.
also switched to a full round radius in the compression area of the nerf
bar. The stock trapezoidal shape forces too much impact energy into the
tiny corner radii near the body support area, usually ending in a break.
The RPM nerf barsí full corner radii are huge in
comparison and allow a progressive compression of the nerf bar while
distributing the impact energy over a much larger area, preventing
breakage by design.
Our design element changes, coupled with the best impact absorbing material in the R/C industry, make RPM nerf bars the best Slash and Slash 4x4 nerf bars available!
Notes: RPM Nerf Bars are only tested and
guaranteed to fit the stock Traxxas Slash 2wd and Slash 4x4 chassis.
They will not work on the LCG Kit or Rally.

Traxxas Slash 4x4 Rear Bumper
incorporated a thicker skid plate design that does a fantastic job of
protecting the rear end and lower mounting screws from harsh conditions
such as gravel and asphalt impacts. The RPM lower mount /
skid plate is over 35% thicker than the stock version!
more could we do to make these things incredibly realistic? How about
mounting points for mud flaps and RPM tail light kits
already widely available? Thatís right; these bumpers come stock with
mounting positions for RPM mud flaps (RPM #81012
available separately) and RPM Tail Light Kits (RPM
#81030 also available separately). If you
havenít seen a Slash with a full set of
LEDís running at night, youíre missing out!
RPM rear bumpers for the Traxxas Slash 4x4 are available in three popular color options Ė black, blue and chrome on gray. RPM rear bumpers are sold with all necessary hardware and complete mounting instructions.
Tail Light Set
tail light set comes complete with everything needed to bolt
a pair of 3mm LEDís (LEDís not included) to an RPM
rear bumper (#80122, #80123 or
#80125) including a pair of red tail light lenses, two lens
housings and a pair of mounting plates (the RPM mounting
plates can be modified to fit other applications such as the Associated
SC10 and other short course vehicles as well). The lens housings can also
be modified to fit other areas of different vehicles for alternate effects
too, such as running a second set of lights as amber marker
lights (identical to full-sized short course and Baja racing trucks).
lighting up whatís out front, we have our light canister sets (RPM
#80982 & #80983) as well as our
roof-mounted light bar set (RPM #80922,
#80923 & #80925). RPM light sets are the best
and only alternative for continuing your fun long after the sun sets and
the lights go out!
Suggestions: If you don't want to build a set of LED tail lights yourself, please consider www.RC-Lights.com for a drop-in tail light set, no soldering required. They manufacture an RPM recommended brake light kit that gets brighter under braking! You can find the specific kit here. RC-Lights is offering $30.00 off any full LED lighting system to RPM customers. Simply mention the code 'RPM' at checkout.
Tech Notes: 3mm LED lights are not included. The RPM mounting plates and lens housings can be modified to fit any number of applications but warranty restrictions do apply. See instructions for more details. RPM tail light sets are designed specifically for the RPM rear bumper for the Traxxas Slash (RPM #80122, #80123 & #80125). Modifications may be made to make them fit other applications but warranty restrictions may apply.
That is no longer an issue! RPM now has a mud flap system that integrates with our Rear Bumper for the Traxxas Slash 2wd & 4x4 (RPM #80122, #80123, #80125, #81002, #81003, & #81005). The RPM Mud Flap System uses a pair of molded nylon support arms that bolt to pre-existing holes in the RPM bumper supports of our Slash rear bumpers. These support arms hold a pair of well-designed rubber mud flaps that incorporate the molded RPM Logo on one side and are blank on the other. One final touch is a pair of molded screw supports that help prevent the screws from pulling through the soft rubber of the mud flaps.
Tech Notes: The RPM Mud Flap System is designed to work with RPM Rear Bumpers for the Traxxas Slash 2wd & 4x4 only (RPM #80122, #80123, #80125, #81002, #81003 & #81005). They will not work with stock or other aftermarket rear bumpers.
