Quite simply, the stock Associated B44, B44.1 & B44.2 does not have any front-end protection. Any frontal impact is struck directly with the front shock tower, front A-arms or the front differential housing. No longer will that be an issue with an RPM Wide Front Bumper installed!
Each RPM bumper is a full 5” (127mm) wide and extends forward over 1.5” (38.1mm) to protect all those more fragile interior components. RPM nylons are impact absorbing, working similarly to an airbag in a car to slow the vehicle down much more gradually versus that abrupt stop the B44 would typically encounter with stock components. Once the impact energy has been absorbed, the bumper returns back to its original shape, ready for the next major incident. RPM bumpers mount using 4 screws, extending back far enough to protect the leading edge of your expensive chassis and offering serious skid resistance to the bottom of the buggy.
