    My backslash

    Here are a few pics of my completed backslash...





    I'm not sure if I like the front bumper sticking out so much. It'll offer protection of course but it looks a bit out of place. Thoughts?

    Looks nice all murdered out!

    The wing mounts kind scare me. Looks like they would snap on the first bad hit!
    I hope it's stronger then it looks!

    Yeah, we shall see. I ordered two different wing kits but went with this setup for now. If it does break, I can use the other kit although I'd have to make a mounting plate to attach it to the shock tower.

    The truck looks great! I think for me, personally I would loose the front bumper. I am not the biggest fan of the RPM bumper on a Traxxas body because of how far it sticks out. It just seems like it is out of place.

    I would change the front bumper.
    Why?
    I like to pretend that I am actually in the car, driving it.
    If I were in your rig, I would not be able to see where I'm going.
    I like to use that in my bumper and body decisions.
    I know, I'm strange that way...

    Another nice looking backslash!!!

    Wondering if the rustler rpm front bumper would fit in the front? Maybe that would protect the front while not sticking out so much.

    That highflow body does really stand out on the backslash...

    Nice uni colour, black, always a classic...

    Man that head bunper looks intimidating....it will defintely win in a collision course.

    You can just remove the upper part of the bumper. You will still have the smaller scoop to protect a little
