Tamiya Hornet / Grasshopper front skid plate. 

A CNC machined skid plate designed and made individually by us. Machined in 1.5mm 6082T6 alloy and including a 3D printed back-frame and spacer for the skid plate so the original screws can be used.

A classic design with 3 slots to mimic the detailing on the bodywork. 

Specifically designed to suit the narrow body front of the Hornet and Grasshopper, tapering nicely to not obstruct the front spot lights.

Why 1.5mm and not 3mm like so many others? 

1: Scale: 3mm is 30mm in 1:1 scale and looks too thick on the front of a 1/10 scale car.
2: Having a thinner plate will reduce the risk of breaking the chassis in a hard impact. It will give and absorb impact. 3mm will just move the damage backwards and likely shatter the chassis.

No new screws required, original bumper screws are used.

Included in set:
1 x 1.5mm CNC machined alloy plate
2 x 3D printed spacer/detail

The alloy surface is unfinished. Allowing that personal touch of brushing or polishing.
