Default E10 skid plate

I have seen a number of people say that the skid from Road Dog RC is a good upgrade for the E10. Problem is I canít find the Facebook page that sells them. Does anyone have a link they could share? Thanks

I did not find the skid you were looking for, but you might be able to have this one printed for you.

I don't have an E10, so I am not really sure if it is a viable option, but it is an option nonetheless.

i cut my e10 skid out of a plastic cutting board works great
i actually cut the whole chassis out of it i call it the IED chassis or the improvised electronic device lol

the best upgrade you could do is to go with a scx10 skid and slot the 2 holes for transmission bolts or upgrade your transmission to a ax10/3 gear unit for a scx10 or enduro trans if you want some overdrive in the transmission
going with the axial skid you could also run the 2 speed trans or one with dig they also sell models with counter rotating outputs to help with torque twist saposidly

It looks like the FB page isn't there anymore.
May want to try Etsy or eBay.
I think Vader made skids for them as well.
I tried to make one like Ferp but it looked terrible. Lol.

I’ve printed a few of them over time but have gone back to the stock plate. Tried the cutting board too, works well. Measure 4 times, cut once.

The one I used (no affiliation) was the wide version.

Shipways has one similar.

the scx10 skid is still the best way to go

you would need to do a tummy tuck mod that dose a few things
1 lowers your over all cog
2 has potential to fix the horable suspention link geomitry cause now theres material were the upper link mounts need to be

the scx10 skid is already set up for a axial 3 gear trans thats alot stronger than the stock e10 trans that your gona end up replacing anyway
and it inboards your lower links
