Adapted a RPM arrma kraton bumper to my new et 48 2.0 very easy to do. You will need a 3mm tap two m4 by 22 flathead screws the rear center hole is drilled and tapped into the chassis.

Wish I was confident enough to try that myself.
It’s very easy I will be doing a build thread in the next few days and explain it in detail so anyone can do it. Are you getting the 2.0

Yes, I have a ET48 2.0 on order it just hasn't arrived yet. I look forward to seeing your build thread.
Awesome you’re gonna love it. The biggest thing to watch out for is installing the rear bulkhead to chassis mounting screws TKR1346 they get very tight use chapstick on threads and work them in and out as you go or you will round out the hex head.

Lynny, your ET48 looks awesome!

I did mine using T-Bone ET48.3 bumpers and wheelie bar.
Bolts layout was totally different. Drilled and dremel some.

I just re-purposed an old Arrma bumper this afternoon then I found this thread, you guys did a fantastic job, well done! Mine is pretty poorly executed, but will do the job for now. I have loads of them lying around so I can try and do a better job with the next one.

Yes. it holds good.
But you’ll need longer bolts to install them. Longer 5mm each than stock bolts.

T-bone part number: 57007, 57010

Can you post kraton bumper part numbers? The ones I'm finding don't look like this. They look smaller.

You can use 81812 or the older 81472 these are both rpm part numbers. If you look at my build thread et48 2.0 Basher build I layed it out step by step it’s really easy to do. If you do use this bumper get some 4by25 flat head screws to hold the front cover on the kit 4by20 don’t have much holding power.
