    Thumbs up Wow! Can you say mirror?

    I was just browsing eBay, looking at some of the stuff people are selling, and came across an auction that really caught my eye! What I thought were flawlessly chromed T-Maxx skid plates, were actually flawlessly polished aluminum skid plates! They are absolutely amazing looking! Perfect for that shelf-queen show-truck! The image name says chrome, but they are actually polished. RC Driven...

    -They look nice! They're kinda pointless for a truck that's actually bashed!

    Metal skids are great for transferring shocks an impacts to your screws and bulkheads. That's one place I really prefer having plastic. RPM wear plates are great.

    Those shiny skids look nice for something that will never see fuel in it's tank.

    Never had any issues with alloy skids on my BB maxx, and I whoop the tar out of it! Any RPM Ill ever run on my Maxx is the Bulk Braces, Body Posts and Arms, the rest is alloy all the way baby! Gotta have the extra weight to keep the front somewhat planted to the ground. For a the Small 2.5 or 3.3 powered Maxx, Plastic is fine, Big Block, no thanks.
