E-Maxx Skid plates

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Ok well again...Have the E-maxx out and i break the front skid plate off flush with the chassis...

How much would the aluminum one be?????

Or should i just make one myself..

Thats all i seem to break now...Launching it off snow banks and getting aleast 4-6 feet of air and i break nothing...But i lightly brush the curb and bam...One tough truck..But the tiny skid plate is almost pointless...

Buy the RPM ones, there made out of a much more durable plastic. Aluminum will bend and add a considerable amount of weight to the truck

Exclamation RPM e-maxx skid plate PART NUMBERS and thing you should know about your truck!!!!!!!!

HERE! now you have no reason to complain... BTW support your LHS, help keep the hobby strong in Canada!

Center Skid Plate & Skid Plate Set
for the Traxxas T-Maxx #4908, E-Maxx #3905 & Brushless Edition


The extended chassis rails of the newer versions of both the T-Maxx and E-Maxx would not allow our original center skid plate to bolt up to either of these trucks without modification to the chassis rails. After quite a bit of prodding from our customers, we now have a new center skid plate and skid plate set designed specifically for the T-Maxx #4908 & E-Maxx #3905 trucks.

Unlike the stock center skid plate, our new molded center skid plate extends over the predominance of the chassis rails with better than 4mm of bulletproof RPM protection! The molded curves of our skid plate perfectly mate with the chassis support rails and act as a reduced-friction transition surface that prevents objects from hooking the stock rear skid plate. Other great features include: deep recessed screw holes help eliminate damage to the mounting screw heads, a matched grooved finish from the front of the truck to the rear and provide outstanding wear and impact resistance. The center skid plate provides a more solid tie between the two chassis side rails for added support and rigidity. Additionally, since our center skid plate runs the rearward length of the chassis side rails, less dirt and debris will be forced into the rear skid plate area of the chassis, improving driveline durability and drive shaft bearing longevity.

RPM skid plates are protected by our warranty against breakage and are molded in either blue or black and sold with all necessary mounting hardware (1/8" dia. drill not included). Like all RPM molded products, RPM skid plates are proudly made in the USA. Proven durability at competitive prices!

Tech Notes: The E-Maxx & T-Maxx use different mounting hole locations for the center mounting screws. We left the mounting holes blind to prevent dirt build up in the holes that aren’t used. An 1/8” diameter drill is required to drill out the correct mounting holes for the vehicle the skid plate will be mounted on.
For older version T-Maxx, E-Maxx & S-Maxx trucks, our original T/E-Maxx Center Skid Plates are the correct length for the chassis side rails.

Please Note: RPM skid / wear plates require the use of stock, plastic skid plates, bulkheads, & (for center skid plates) chassis braces. RPM skid plates will work with most aftermarket aluminum front & rear skid plates but RPM guarantees the fit only when used with stock parts.
