I like to start to add a bumper and place on Leds to it as I feel that may be the best spot without cutting the lexon

tee bones bumper has the holes unsure its diameter if anyone knows or did a led mod on it?



and I guess the same goes for the rear.

So I had the material & the time, made my own bumper by hand taken me no time to get something done, well in the works? I will continue to tune her the way I feel fit, if not liking it, all I did was waste my time? I want to add leds to it and I look at my other Rc Model bumpers they all face up then the angle I got? so not much of interest for now . tools used a file and a drill bit along with a hack saw. all filed down ,and polished. enjoy

If you find T Bone Racing's new Talion bumper is too big, especially since the new V3 Talion is a low profile speed truggy, TBR's Typhon Basher front bumper also fits & looks much sleeker on the new Talion:

Here is a couple of pics of the TBR Typhon Basher bumper mounted on my V3 Talion:

The RPM front bumper is also a direct fit for the new V3 Talion:

Instead of a heavy rear bumper, another option is an RPM rear skid plate which offers good underside protection. It weighs only 11.0g:

Here is a pic with the RPM rear skid plate on my V3 Talion:

found the Tbone Typhon front bumper on Ebay but it says part #100071 and looks to have a slight bend in the back under the chassis... I can't tell if yours does or not in the pic ...

Cool will do but does yours have a slight bend or is it straight?
Yes, the bumper does bend upwards where it changes from the front skid plate to the actual bumper part if that is what you mean? The bumper link you showed on ebay (part #100071) is the same bumper as mine, although TBR shows the part as 10007. A Main Hobbies also stocks the T Bone Racing Typhon Basher front bumper:

If anyone is interested, A Main Hobbies also carries other TBR Arrma parts:

Awesome, thanks for your time
No problem, I'm glad I was able to help. Here's a couple more pics pic to hold you off till you get yours:

I think the Typhon Basher front bumper is a good choice for the V3 Talion, as I did not want a big bulky heavy snowplow bumper on this sleek low profile speed truggy.

FYG, the TBR Typhon front bumper weighs only 39.0g +1.1g more for the longer screws (using my high end digital scale), which is not too bad considering the front and underside protection this offers. This is definitely a worthwhile upgrade, even if you are concerned about any extra weight added.

Did you put the big shovel bummer on ? Run rpm on front an t- bone in rear for cart wheel protection.rpm looks better to me.
