RPM Rear Bumper and Mud Flaps for the Traxxas Slash
Rear Bumper for the Traxxas Slash
After releasing our front bumper for the Traxxas Slash, we immediately started receiving customer requests for a rear bumper. In typical RPM fashion, we don’t just make replacement parts, we make the best replacement parts possible! So what sets the RPM rear bumper above all else? We started with our incredibly durable materials and created a bumper that is based off of current full-sized Short Course and Baja style rear bumpers. Full-sized rear bumpers are wide and flat and our scale version is exactly that, for the ultimate in rear-end protection. RPM rear bumpers will stop most rear impacts from affecting the truck in any negative way.
Additionally, RPM rear bumpers for the Traxxas Slash weigh in at a full 9 grams (18%) lighter than the stock version! Lighter is always faster.
What more could we do to make these things incredibly realistic? How about mounting points for mud flaps? That’s right; these bumpers come stock with mounting positions for RPM mud flaps (#81012 – available separately). Now the Slash owner can run mud flaps for ultra-realistic good looks.
RPM rear bumpers for the Traxxas Slash are available in three popular color options – black, blue and chrome. All RPM rear bumpers are sold with all necessary hardware and complete mounting instructions.
Although not entirely necessary, we highly recommend the use of an RPM rear bumper mount (#80902 or #80905) for full rear-end crash and bash-proof protection.
#81002 Black Rear Bumper $11.95
#81003 Chrome Rear Bumper $13.95
#81005 Blue Rear Bumper $11.95
Mud Flaps for the Traxxas Slash
The Traxxas Slash is arguably one of the best and most authentic replicas of a modern Short Course Truck. Unfortunately, it’s lacking in a critical detail than many other manufacturers have incorporated into their trucks, which would be mud flaps. That is no longer an issue! RPM now has a mud flap system that integrates with our new Rear Bumper for the Traxxas Slash (RPM #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 set of well-designed rubber mud flaps that incorporate the molded RPM Logo on one side and are blank on the other. The end user can decide which side they would prefer to show. 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.
The RPM Mud Flap System is designed to work with RPM Rear Bumpers for the Traxxas Slash only (RPM #81002, #81003 & #81005). They will not work with stock or other aftermarket rear bumpers.
#81012 Mud Flaps for the Traxxas Slash (RPM Bumpers only) $10.95
