This is not thick metal. It is aluminum. I made the bend by hand and The bend of metal is not stiff to cause damage. I have another product that you’re describing that will do more harm then good. So yes looks are indeed deceiving. Ang I totally agree. Cost me time not money and if I find a t bone steak cheap i’ll Eat itNeat handy work, but I personally would not want something nearly as stiff as that thick metal as a bumper. Bumpers should be able to absorb impacts as to protect the RC. Something that thick and stiff is only going to transfer the impact to other areas of the RC.
Looks good. I understand what Woodie is saying so I'm curious to see what happens when you crash. Haha mounting it underneath so it doubles as a skid plate looks to be the best mounting point. Keep us posted.thought I share what I made over the weekend . that i may continue on enjoy
Yes I agree with me I try my best not to bash for a crash lol. I like to work on it but knowing the counter sink will not work to soft that is where it will be forgiving.Looks good.

Newer versions of the t-maxx are a lot better. At least in regards to the diffs, slider axles and trans. My nitro revo's and brushless revo hold up just fine for those parts. Not sure if the bulks are any better on newer t-maxx though. Diffs were the biggest issue for me.I got the electric EmaX just converted over to brushless I know what you mean. it is a strong truck love it. will be my basher. I see what you mean about the metal parts? I still can shave down to where it works more for LEDS then a bumper. SO in the mean time I will have to figure out other things of the tailon love the car.
