I honestly don't like the stock ride height at all, and I didn't want to change the gearing. Or put extra stress by adding bigger tires, so I just got thicker shock oil and raised the height. This thing is crucial as it also reinforces the front part of the chassis as it's the weakest point. And it's doing it's job nicely on my 4x4 Rusty. Waiting on parts ofcourse.
I bought one for each of my rustlers. The front screw mounts seem to want to pull through the plate. One has cracked. Was told by T-Bone to wait and see if it gets worse... holding up so far.
Fault of my own only orderd chassis skid and didn't see part where you need to purchase front bumper to to be able to mount skid. Will be ordering bumper next. Looks like a great product.
Shit is bad ass cant imagine bashing without it
THE RUSTLER HAS A LOW SLUNG CHASSIS AND T-BONES SKID WILL PROTECT THE CHASSIS AND ALLOW MANY MORE DAYS OF FUN WITH YOUR TRUCK. AS ALWAYS T-BONE MAKES THE VERY BEST RC TRUCK ARMOR IN THE WORLD! GET SOME YOU WILL LOVE IT!!
