TBR T-Bone Racing Extra Bumper Support
Why would you need a “rear bumper support”? If you don’t know why, then you don’t need one. However, if you are a hardcore basher you’ve already destroyed a dozen rear bumpers from demo-derby and rear-end landings and you know they aren’t cheap to replace.

T-Bone RacingT-Bone Racing (aka- TBR) has just released a new rear bumper support for the Losi XXX-SCT. The rear bumper support will help keep your stock bumper intact during even the most hardcore of bash sessions.

How much does one of these go for? Well street price is a measly $18 and you can pick one up right now off the TBR Website.

We all like tough stuff and RPM has been one of the great purveyors of such stuff for a long time.  Now they have even more tough stuff for the Baja 5B and 5T drivers in the crowd.  The new rear bumper is a direct drop-in replacement made out of the fancy RPM material that everybody knows and loves.  The design has been tweaked for greater strength but all of the stock geometry has been retained to make it just simply work.  Unlike other RPM parts, this bumper is only available in black.  The MSRP is $18.95 and it’ll be available early August.

Check out the RPM web site for more info.

Have you been sitting there, staring at your Mini E-Revo, thinking “you know… this truck just isn’t blue enough…”  Or maybe red is more your color.  Think no more because RPM has a few new parts for you that WILL make your truck bluer… or redder… which ever you prefer… GUARANTEED!

The new RPM front and rear bumpers will do more than just add a splash of color to your ride though.  You’ll also be adding to the “scale” (I use that word loosely) looks of your M-Rev because these bumpers are designed after that twin tubular style that is popular with full scale off-roaders.  And of course they are molded in RPM’s legendarily tough RPM Material, making them super strong and lightweight.  And, most importantly, they are almost double the width of the stock bumpers, offering that much more protection for your expensive little toy.

Oh and for you Emo kids out there they also offer them in black, so you don’t have to worry about anybody giving you that attention you crave so much.

The front bumper will set you back around $9, the rear is probably gonna go for $10ish.  Check your local hobby shop early next month for these.  Head on over to RPM’s site for more info.
