This is the RPM Blue Motor Protector for the Traxxas Slash 2WD, Rustler, Stampede 2WD, and Bandit vehicles. This is designed to be used in place of the bumper or wheelie bar. See Tech Notes at bottom for more information.
Many Traxxas electric vehicles have a motor that is dangerously exposed to impacts and damage from rear impacts or collisions. Our new rear Motor Protector eliminates that problem! How did we solve it? We started with an RPM rear bumper mount / wheelie bar mount (RPM #80902 or #80905) and extended the reach with this simple add-on piece, which completely blocks the motor from most rear impacts. A stock Traxxas rear bumper mount / wheelie bar mount - Traxxas #3677 - can be used with this motor protector as well.
Traxxas Slash owners running in the unlimited class or those that simply want to drop a huge amount of rear end weight can eliminate the stock rear bumper and mount the RPM Motor Protector in place of the stock bumper to prevent damage to the end-bell and motor.
For the ultimate in rear end protection, a second motor protector can be bolted to the opposite side of the rear bumper mount / wheelie bar mount (gear cover side) to help protect the gears and gear cover from extreme rear-end impacts.
The RPM motor protector can be used on any vehicle that can run the Traxxas #3677 rear bumper mount / wheelie bar mount including the Bandit, e-Stampede, e-Rustler & Slash as well as a number of Traxxas legacy models. Our Motor Protector is molded from our ultra-durable blend of nylons and is backed by our limited lifetime warranty.
Tech Notes: To use the RPM Motor Protector in conjunction with a Slash 2WD rear bumper or Traxxas wheelie bar, please see Tips below. With included hardware, it must be used in place of either the bumper or wheelie bar. A Traxxas rear bumper mount / wheelie bar mount (Traxxas #3677) or an RPM rear bumper / wheelie bar mount (RPM #80905) must be installed prior to installing the RPM Motor Protector (not included).
Tips: Thanks to an RPM customer for this tip on how to use our Motor Protector in conjunction with a stock Slash 2WD rear bumper. Using the spacers from the Traxxas shock parts tree, slip the spacers in place of the stock shoulder screws that attach the stock bumper to the mount, then use 2 - M3 x 26mm Cap Screws (not included) in place of the the RPM mounting screws that come supplied with the RPM Motor Protector.
