Those all out skid plates with the bumper are a bit heavier and they will change your in air attitude, try the skids from DE racing they are real good and they have a long wear rate. When I had my losi after 1 season I sold it with the ones I bought for it. They also make some real nice mud guards.

re 1/8 skid plates

i use the de racing skid plates on my d8t truggy and they really help prevent wear on your chassis

on my ve8 e buggy i use the hot bodies aluminum skid plates on the front and rear. the main chassis is composite and the skid plates that come with the kit are also composite but upgrading to the aluminum ones is a must.

as JohnnyBoy mentioned. I dont know guys, unless the chassis is molded composite or plastic, I think skid plates on a buggy or truggy's aluminum chassis is a bad idea (race wise)
It could affect your droop/weight transfer setting. You'd have too increase your ride height to compensate, which could slow you down from rolling over, or maybe even srcub corner speed and help you to spin out if the ride height is too low...

I say run the aluminum chassis bare and let it get the road rash it deserves!! :GRIN:
