After the success that RPM achieved with the RPM Body Savers for the Traxxas Revo 2.0 and Rustler 4×4, they decided to apply the same ingenuity for the Traxxas X-Maxx. The clipless body mounting system Traxxas uses on the X-Maxx is a handy system to have. Unfortunately it tends to have one fatal flaw – the mounting screw holes crack easily, rendering those expensive new bodies useless fairly quickly. If you’ve managed to pull any of your body mounting screws through the body or if you think it’s about to happen, RPM has the perfect solution to save you from ugly, thick body washers or worse, buying a new body for $75 – $110!
RPM Body Savers for the X-Maxx are a simple, yet clever solution to solve that problem. Out front, they look like molded hood vents (2) and A/C vents (2) while in the rear, they look like exposed sections of riveted metal (2). It’s a perfect way to camouflage their intended purpose and yet still keep the body firmly attached.
The way they work is straightforward and twofold. Out front, they work similarly to oversized washers, yet have significantly more surface area than most washers, without detracting from the looks of your favorite ride. Out back, there are two pairs of screws holding the sub-frame of the body mounting system to the body. The RPM rear Body Savers tie two pairs of screws together, dispersing the pressure of holding the body to the sub-frame over a wide area of the body. Even if the bottom of the mounting holes in the body are completely ripped out from prior crashes, the RPM body savers still works.
RPM Body Savers are molded in black from RPM’s ultra-strong, engineering grade nylons for unmatched performance and are sold with enough Body Savers to protect the entire vehicle.
