Default Hot racing Skid plate, any comments??

I, was thinking of buying their skid plate (Part # SCP13301) and was wondering if any of you add any comment to do about it, good or bad??? Just discover that hotracing and integy is parent and add problem with integy stuff in the past so know i'm a bit more cautious...

I just order CKRC stage two kit and I'm looking at options to mount those lower link's inside the frame, I think this is better than cutting the stock plate...

Benn looking around and using the search button but found nothing about the plate...

Thank's for any input, René

It's Delrin, better on the rocks than Aluminum.

i just ordered one, seems to be the best choice if you don't want to hack up the stock one.

It says they are prototypes--but are they available? It shows them as being available but nor sure.....

Witch one do you order, the hotracing or the TCS one?

I really like the TCS one, delrin seem to be more appropriate for the application....

i ordered the delrin prototype. you just have to drill the holes in the ends for mounting to the chassis.

just so you dont feel as dumb as I did, Delrin is plastic, Aluminum is metal. the plastic slides over the rocks easier than the aluminum. I thought delrin was metal until my oh so kind bro in law set me straight. Thanks Jeremy...

Well, I was going to order one from TCS when i saw that the only delivery option is going to cost me over 20$ to ship it to my canadian place, Find it a bit over charge for a part that could be ship in a pad envelop:?

I wrote to them explaining my case, waiting for an anwser at the moment...

Hi I have the Hot racing one it's nice because if you also buy the hot racing motor mount it screws the motor plate right into the skid and makes the motor mount much stronger and also extracts the motor heat and disapates it though the whole skid plate and acts like a big heat sink... One thing about the hot racing heat sink motor plate you need to grind a little of the cooling fins off more than they did in the same area so the back of spure gear plate don't rub ...other than that the whole system works great together.
