This is a optional RPM Center Skid Chassis Protector Plate, and is intended for use with the HPI Savage Flux monster truck. The HPI Savage Flux is an incredibly powerful truck, with a critical protection flaw. There isn’t any protection for the fragile transmission and lower edge of the chassis plates. RPM solved this issue on the Savage and Savage-X with a design unique to RPM products and now a similar design is used to solve this same problem on the Savage Flux.
The RPM Skid Plate for the HPI Savage Flux has been precisely molded to follow the curves of the stock chassis plates, while adding unmatched durability to the entire drive line and transmission of the truck, leaving nothing exposed to potential road hazards, rocks or debris. The smooth, grooved surface of this skid plate also provides a low-friction skid surface for those times when a slide across the belly is unavoidable. RPM nylons are extremely durable, lightweight and wear resistant for long-lasting performance unmatched by anything else on the market.
This distinctive design sits perfectly centered between the stock front and rear skid plates, without any vulnerable high spots, meaning transitions from the front to center to rear skid plate are snag-proof, lacking overlaps that can cause an object to catch and damage the underbelly of the truck. The mounting screws are recessed below the surface of the skid plate as well, providing protection to the screws and eliminating yet another potential snag point.
RPM skid plates are packaged with all necessary mounting parts, screws (heat-treated, flathead hex screws) and instructions. RPM Savage Flux skid plates are also backed by RPM's industry-leading breakage warranty.NOTE:
This part is only compatible with the HPI Savage Flux chassis.
