Ordered one off eBay for 12 about a week ago @ 72.5 x 78 for a custom build I'm starting. This was made for the SCX10 which my chassis rails are very close in size to... I'll report with my findings in about 6 months when it finally arrives in the UK...
This the auction title if you want to check it out; BQLZR RC1:10 Alloy Center Skid Transmission Plate for AXIAL SCX10 4WD Silver
That's from viewing in the UK though so might be different your side!?

You asked for dimensions. I gave you the critical dimensions.

What more do you need?

It's not a useful question - if you want to build a SCX-10ish thing you have the dimensions. If you want an average of every skid plate in production you need to do some searching.

I've been researching that very question, what I came up with is cutting board. The white transparent kind not the solid white. Others have found other colors as well such as black.

Yeah...




Cutting board is a very good material to use. Easy to work with, tough, cheap, and even looks good.
