DO NOT GET THAT. I got it for my stampede and it lasted a whole 5 minutes before it was bent against the motor and transmission, and bent to one side. Its a complete piece of crap, you can bend it with your hands. Im talking about the integy one. the ESP looks to be better quality.

The traxxas one is pure junk, i payed 20 bucks for it, it was broke in 3 peices in 2 jumps, Get a swami bar you need sumthing aluminum on the back to protect the tranny and motor from hits

thanks thats what i figured about the integy.
i'll check them on ebay out.
i had thought about just bendin a piece metal and bolting to the skid.
and my truck came with a traxxas bar, and like was said it didn't last long. i reallt liked it cause it being adjustable and all. i wish they made a metal one that and use pins to set it how high you wanted it.
also i have thought about just putting a slash bumper on the back of the stampede. i just want something there to drag the ground instead of the body. cause i done tore one of the pinholes in my body alittle.
