This is an optional RPM Front Bumper, and is intended for use with the Associated Nitro TC3. If your NTC3 can?ÇÖt survive a crash, you?ÇÖll never make it to the finish line! Stock front bumpers simply can?ÇÖt handle the punishment that most front-end collisions dish out. That?ÇÖs where RPM steps in. Their NTC3 front bumper is specifically designed to absorb impacts from front-end collisions with three built-in buffer zones that give slightly under impact to significantly reduce the amount of energy transferred to the more vital and fragile components of the car. No other material (carbon fiber, aluminum, kydex) has the memory capabilities that RPM nylons do, which means that this bumper will return to its original shape after even the worst crashes! In addition, RPM guarantees that their bumpers will not break ?Çô which translates into a lifetime of bulletproof front-end protection! RPM bumpers are made from RPM's exclusive blend of nylons and are molded in either black or blue. RPM NTC3 front bumpers are a stock replacement and are built to ROAR legal specifications, which means no cutting of the bumper to get it to legal width for racing!
