Light Canister Set
Our 4-light set also comes with a unique mounting plate that allows all four lights to sit centered in perfect symmetry within the upper and lower bars of our Slash front bumper. The mounting plate uses the same three screws that attach the bumper to the bumper skid plate while keeping the lights recessed and protected by the upper and lower bumper bars.
the lights look simply awesome on the front of the truck but why did we
make them? Well, we wanted to light up the night! That’s right, each of
the four light canisters come set-up for a 3mm LED light (not included).
Our instructions detail a very simple method to install a set of 4 LEDs in
our canisters to carry the fun long into the night. Our calculations show
that adding 4 - 3mm LEDs and tying the power source directly into the main
battery pack creates a minimal draw of power (only 40mAh) but throws out a
nice amount of light to keep the fun going as daylight draws to an end!
For the ultimate in scale-realism, there is nothing better than the RPM Light Canister set. They are available in classic black or bright chrome. Either looks incredible on the truck and adds the finishing touch to any concourse winning paint job!
What's Included: The RPM Light Canister Set includes: 4 - Light Canisters, 4 - Light Guards, 4 - Clear Lenses, 1 - Light Mount, 4 - M3 x 8mm Flathead Screws & complete instructions. RPM Bumper / Skid Plate sold separately.
Suggestions: If you don't want to build a set of LED lights yourself, There are several companies currently making drop-in light sets for the RPM Light Canister Set.
Traxxas Slash 2wd Front Bumper & Skid Plate
Traxxas Slash front bumper design completely eliminates the stock
chassis-to-bumper support ring and the 5 screws holding the support ring
in place. Additionally, the RPM version uses a thicker skid
design (more than 60% thicker than the stock skid!) to
supply the cushioning resistance a basher-proof bumper needs. Even though
our thicker, more stout front bumper and skid plate is significantly
stronger and more beefy than stock, it still falls in at a weight that is slightly
less than the stock front bumper*. So even if the racer wants to
run a full RPM front bumper and skid plate, they won’t
have to worry about adding unwanted weight. To help improve overall
durability, our skid rail design is wider than stock, which perfectly
matches the design of our front and rear
Slash skid plates.
The RPM front bumper and skid plate for the Traxxas Slash is available in three color options: black on black, blue on blue or a chrome bumper on a gray skid plate. We’re so confident in the strength and durability of these new bumpers that they too come with our unbeatable factory warranty protection.
*Our weight comparison is based on the weight of the stock Traxxas bumper along with the weight of the support ring and hardware (all of which is permanently removed once the RPM bumper / skid plate is installed).
Traxxas Slash 2wd Rear Skid Plates
rear Slash skid plates are completely redesigned, making them stronger and
much more durable. Our unique design use three chassis mounting points
instead of two, triangulating the chassis mounts on the truck, in turn
spreading impact energy over a larger area. This is done using a hole
already located in the stock chassis, meaning no drilling is required. We
also eliminated the cross-tube styling of the stock skid plates in favor
of a solid flat skid design with a large radius at the
transition points to allow the truck to slide over obstacles that would
have normally caught on the stock rear skid plate. That means no more
direct impacts to the lower rear end of the truck, which is the primary
source of a broken chassis.
a final design touch, we added four thick skid rails on both the front and
rear skid plates which reduce sliding friction while improving the overall
durability of the skid plates and the truck. At the tail end of the rear
skid plate, a skid rail runs from side to side to protect the lower
transmission screw and rear bumper mount while
providing a smooth transitional surface.
skid plates for the Traxxas Slash are sold in three color options –
black, blue and our all new gray color which is designed to blend in with
the stock Traxxas gray colors of the chassis, bulkheads &
transmission. RPM skid plates are the only aftermarket
molded skid plate designed and manufactured right
here in the USA!
Notes: Stock rear bumper mounts (Traxxas #3677) will not
work with RPM skid plates. To retain the use of a rear
bumper or wheelie bar, RPM #80902 or
#80905 must be used. RPM skid plates are designed
for and only guaranteed to fit a stock Traxxas Slash chassis and chassis

RPM front skid plates for the Traxxas Slash 2wd are designed using the same principles we used when creating our Slash 2wd rear skid plates. Our ultimate goals were to create a front skid plate that simplified maintenance, improve durability and improve the appearance of the truck. These skid plates far exceeded those goals!
The RPM front skid plate features a new bell crank mounting system that eliminates the need to remove the bell crank every time the front skid plate is removed. We accomplished this goal by using a pair of posts that press into the chassis of the truck and another pair of posts molded into the skid plate. This sandwiches the bell crank between the skid plate and chassis and supports both the upper and lower portions of the bell crank, reducing steering slop and giving a more precise feel to the steering system. This system simplifies maintenance and eliminates the annoying problem of the bell crank screws popping out of the chassis support holes after an impact to the front end.
Our front skid plate also uses a triangulated chassis mounting system that uses a support post in the center of the skid plate to bolt up to a pre-existing hole in the stock Traxxas chassis. This third hole not only adds some serious strength and durability, it adds some much needed structural support to the bell cranks.
RPM front skid plates for the Traxxas Slash are sold in three color options just like the rear – black, blue and our all new gray color which is designed to blend in with the stock Traxxas gray colors of the chassis, bulkheads & transmission. All RPM molded products are proudly designed and manufactured right here in the USA!
Notes: RPM skid plates are designed for and only
guaranteed to fit a stock Traxxas Slash chassis and chassis components.
