RPM B6/B6D rear bumper & skid plate

See: RPM R/C products

RPM have introduced a rear bumper and skid plate for the Team Associated B6 and B6D. The rear bumper is tiny and extremely lightweight, yet will become the most valuable piece of equipment on your ride the first time that out-of-control guy slams into your backside! It weighs in at a minuscule 5.5 grams, however it offers some serious rear end protection. It is 2” (51mm) wide and extends rearward by roughly 1-1/4” (32mm) at a 45° angle. Additionally, it sits 0.095” (2.4mm) beneath the chassis. This skid area of the bumper lends extreme skid resistance to the back of that expensive aluminum chassis and helps reduce skid and impact damage to the rear of your chassis.

Ryan Lutz was able to defend his title in both Nitro buggy and truggy classes, bringing home the win for the third year in a row in Nitro buggy and for the second year for Nitro truggy. Here is the race report from Ryan Lutz:

“This past weekend I flew west to attend the ProLine Gas Champs at the ProLine Test track. Last year was a good year for me at this track as I was undefeated in the Nitro Classes at both the Gas Champs and SikCross that were held there. It’s quite interesting that AKA tires are pretty dominant there. Tire wise I stuck with primarily SS Grids on a watered run and SSLW Grids for a drier run. For the mains I went to SSLW Impacts in buggy.”
