Today’s RC cars are bigger and more powerful than ever, which means higher speeds and bigger hits. When you’re talking about a machine as large and fast as the Traxxas X-Maxx, the forces at play are huge. To help extend the life of Traxxas’ big rig (and other models), T-Bone Racing offers robust skidplate kits for the X-Maxx’s chassis and A-arms. Get ready— we’re adding even more beef to a beefy monster truck.
The skidplate is designed to protect the center section of the X-Maxx’s chassis, and it spans the distance between the stock front and rear skid plates. Four standoffs replace Traxxas’ factory hardware to attach the skid, so there’s no drilling required. The arm skids are offered for the stock front and rear arms, and you can also get skids designed specifically for RPM’s front X-Maxx arms. Just like the center skid, they’re available in black, blue, or red. The suspension-arm skids are made up of an upper and lower piece that clamps onto the arm with the help of four flathead screws. Nylon spacers between the two help keep the skid in place.
