RPM head protector has an additional 0.100" or almost 1/8" of additional thickness on top to add extra skid and impact resistance to the fragile cooling fins of the stock Traxxas 2.5"& 2.5" heads. Additionally, our Head Guard has a positive locking system that absolutely will not allow the Head Guard to pull itself free during a crash.
The RPM Head Guard is designed specifically for the Traxxas 2.5"& 2.5" stock engine head which is currently used in many Traxxas models including the Revo, Jato, T-Maxx, S-Maxx, SportMaxx, Nitro 4-Tec 2.5" & Nitro Rustler 2.5" The RPM Head Guard comes with a full set of screws as well as complete installation instructions. They are available in Black, Blue, & Dyeable Silver and are molded in our trademark blend of bulletproof nylons for strength and durability unmatched by any other material on the market!
There are many manufacturers producing aftermarket heads that fit the Traxxas 2.5 & 2.5R engine but the RPM Head Guard has only been tested and guaranteed.
It fits nicely on my nitro rustler but when I tried securing it with the screws it came with they didn't fit well so I used other screws that fit better.
