I NEED ANOTHER!!!!! well, it was wearing out tho but sadly, it broke at 3 points. the screw that attatches to the motor cover, the end of the trans case, and at the bottom. has anoone else have it break this easily? it was only a 10 foot jump witch is small for me lol

    I am pretty sure RPM has a great replacement policy, in fact, I think they'll replace the part for free. Try giving their customer service a call and see about getting it replaced for free before buying a new one.

    I'm actually not that impressed with the RPM mount. It's not up to the usual standard I would expect based upon their other parts. It didn't fit very well and it wears quickly on the bottom. It needs a redesign, in my opinion. They need to get the fit right and add in some sort of rear wear plate.

    I broke two of the RPM mounts. They are vastly better than the stock mount but I agree they are not up to the standards of some of the other RPM parts.

    i bought a front bumper for my rusty and i have hit things head on and it hasn't broke, all it does is just bounce right off.

    I agree that it is better than the Traxxas mount, but it's still not up to snuff with their other parts. The butt end of the Slash is dragging on the ground a lot. They should have taken that into account in the design. Mine is already worn half way through after 2 race nights and the eyelet for the very lowest mount has broken.

    i'd say so...

    not to mention if you're traveling at a high speed and run something over and it gets wedged between the metal plate and the truck itself...could case some major damage...

    if you could bend the metal to use the factory screws with the tapered-back heads, that would be a nice setup.
