Traxxas Slash 2wd & Slash 4x4 Nerf Bars
Black Nerf Bars
Nerf bars play an extremely important function in the overall durability of a Short Course racer by protecting the sides of the chassis and fragile body of the truck. A weak nerf bar can expose the body and chassis to severe impact damage from side impacts, roll over’s and T-bone crashes, just to name a few.

RPM has once again stepped up to make the most durable and well-designed nerf bar for the Traxxas Slash 2wd 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-Blue Nerf Barsdeformation characteristics. By eliminating the hook, installation is easier; the nerf bar doesn’t 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.

We 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 bars’ 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!

Tech Notes: RPM Nerf Bars are only tested and guaranteed to fit the stock Traxxas Slash 2wd and Slash 4x4 chassis.

Traxxas Slash 2wd Rear Bumper Mount
Blue Rear Bumper MountAfter hearing numerous requests to look into the rear bumper mount on the Traxxas Slash, we found several issues that could use the RPM touch. Those same problems were encountered on e-Rustler, e-Stampede & Bandit vehicles using the stock wheelie bar mount. The problem – the stock mount uses only a single screw on the gear cover side to hold the mount in place. That causes a hinge effect under rear impacts causing the slotted area holding on to the rear skid plate to pop off after an impact, leaving the stock bumper / wheelie bar mount hanging under the chassis.Black Rear Bumper Mount The RPM solution… An all-new bumper mounting system that eliminates all of the problems encountered with the stock version.

The RPM rear bumper / wheelie bar mount has two mounting holes on the gear cover side and three on the motor side – that’s two additional mounting points to eliminate that annoying hinge effect mentioned above. The additional mounting screws help disperse impact energy into the transmission case over more surface area, reducing the Blue Rear Bumper Mountpossibility of damaging the case significantly! The new RPM mount design means no more slotted parts hanging below the rear skid plate – ever! Our mount tucks up quite nicely behind the skid plate for better rear end ground clearance.

Our rear bumper / wheelie bar mount fits a wide range of vehicles too. It fits all versions of the Traxxas Slash, electric Stampede, electric Rustler and Bandit including VXL, XL-5 and legacy versions.

The RPM rear bumper / wheelie bar mount is molded in our nearly indestructible blend of nylons and is sold in either blue or black. Each mount comes with all necessary hardware, complete instructions for ease of installation and an industry-leading warranty to back it all up!

 

Tech Notes: The RPM Rear Bumper Mount replaces Traxxas #3677.

Traxxas Slash 2wd Rear A-arms
(not compatible with the Nitro Slash)
Green Slash 2wd Rear A-armsRPM rear A-arms for the Traxxas Slash 2wd are designed specifically for the electric version of the Slash – they are not multi-platform A-arms like the stock versions.

Our first design challenge was to beef up the rear A-arms to handle some serious abuse. The material around the inner and outer hinge pins has been increased by a whopping 64%! We then eliminated all of the unnecessary holes and shock mounts that would be needed on other vehicles but not on the Slash, which significantly reduced the weight of our A-arms while improving crash durability. Even after all of the increased muscle has been factored in, our A-arms still come in at over 10% lighter than the original arms! Our final design task was to improve the fit andBlack Slash 2wd Rear A-arms finish and what we came up with will eliminate most of the slop in the rear suspension system! The Slash owner can tighten things up to near perfect out back simply by adding in a set of our #80382 Rear Bearing Carriers currently available. RPM Slash 2wd rear A-arms use stock suspension geometry and include stock rear toe angles.

 

RPM Slash 2wd rear A-arms are not only stronger and more durable than stock, they are also more rigid and less flexible too, making them the perfect addition to those race-level Slashes on the track. Additionally, the new Blue Slash 2wd Rear A-armsgeometry design leaves no place for dirt and rocks to get caught in the lower A-arm and reduces the chances of rocks and debris getting stuck between the axle and the arm.

 

RPM Slash 2wd rear A-arms are sold in pairs. They are molded in our nearly indestructible blend of nylons and are sold in either black our blue. These A-arms are backed by our limited lifetime warranty against breakage as well for confidence-inspiring durability and performance.

 

Tech Notes: These a-arms are not compatible with the Nitro Slash. Stock rear axle carriers have an upper and lower hinge pin hole. RPM Slash 2wd Rear A-arms only allow the use of the original, lower hole location to be used. The upper axle carrier hole (which would lower the ride height in the back too much) cannot be used. To lower the rear end of the truck, RPM recommends using the outer shock mount hole positions in the A-arm.

Sealed Gear Cover for the Traxxas Slash 2wd,
Elec. Rustler, Elec. Stampede & Bandit
(fits all versions including XL-5 & VXL models)

Black Gear CoverThe most recent electric versions of the Slash 2wd, Rustler, Stampede and Bandit have several new features that caused interference issues with our original RPM molded gear cover for the Stampede & Rustler. We expanded the area of the gear cover over the motor shaft to compensate for the longer motor shaft of the XL-5 & VXL motors. We narrowed two areas along the perimeter of the gear cover to allow clearance for the rear bumper / wheelie bar mount as well. These changes now allow this gear cover to fit all versions of these awesome vehicles.

Blue Gear CoverAdditional features designed into these gear covers include such important aspects as:

  • An oversized access hole and soft plug for easy access to the slipper clutch nut while still maintaining an unmatched seal of the gear mesh area. Our plug stays in place yet is easy to remove and install.
  • Completely sealed. Stock gear covers have a large, open gap between the spur gear and the out-drive that allows gear destroying dirt to enter.
  • Sleek contours that would look great on any vehicle.
  • More clearance for larger pinions for owners hungry for speed.
  • Retains all stock geometry for easy bolt up; no cutting or gluing required.

Green Sealed Gear CoverNot only do they look great, they will protect those expensive gears like nothing else available! RPM's new gear cover will pay for itself the very first time you run through the dirt and nothing enters your gear case. No more blown gears from rocks and debris!

RPM Gear Covers for the electric versions of the Traxxas Stampede, Rustler, Bandit and Slash 2wd are sold in black or blue and carry our limited lifetime warranty against failure due to materials or workmanship issues.

Rear Shock Tower
(fits the Traxxas Slash 2wd, Electric Stampede, Electric Rustler & Bandit)
Traxxas Electric Rear Shock TowerRPM rear shock towers for the electric versions of the Stampede, Rustler & Bandit as well as the Slash were designed with one thing in mind – rugged durability. Once again, we’ve exceeded our own expectations with this shock tower. While we’ve maintained all stock geometry on these shock towers, we’ve beefed them up in all the right places to eliminate annoying rear shock tower breakage. Our version of this shock tower uses an I-Beam construction that improves durability and rigidity as well. At the base of the shock tower, we’ve improved the screws’ head clearance of the bulkhead mounting screws to eliminate the bind normally associated with the stock rear shock tower. Traxxas Electric Rear Shock TowerAll these design elements combine to create the ultimate lightweight, bulletproof rear shock tower for the electric versions of the Rustler & Stampede.

RPM rear shock towers for the Traxxas Slash, Electric Stampede, Electric Rustler & Bandit are molded in black and are backed by our famous breakage warranty. These towers are direct replacement parts for ease of installation.

Tech Note: These rear shock towers can be used on the Traxxas Bandit as well. However, there are no provisions for a rear wing built in.

Front Shock Tower
(fits the Traxxas Slash 2wd, Elec. & Nitro Stampede, Elec. Rustler & Bandit)
E&N-Stampede, E-Rustler & Bandit Front Shock Tower
RPM
shock towers for Traxxas 1/10th scale trucks are designed to add strength and support to the front-end suspension components of these great vehicles. Our shock towers maintain all stock geometry while adding much needed structural strength to this vital suspension component. Our design uses an I-beam structure that adds tremendous levels of strength and rigidity that is far superior to u-shaped or flat designs. Our front shock towers will not flex nearly as easily as the stock versions yet have enough give in them, which prevents breakage from hard impacts or crashes.

RPM shock towers are molded in black and are made from our well-reputed blend of materials. These shock towers are so strong; we back them with our extremely well known policy against breakage.
