Engine slider/protector

Anybody have an idea where to get a right side engine case skid protector? I've tried just about everything I know and my local guy (who is a speed and track part supplier) has no contact avenues. Not real critical, but would sure be nice to protect that cover somewhat.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Look at Dale James post about his engine case covers here on this forum or on racetorx.co.uk

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that Danny! I thought Woodcraft would have something but don't seem to anymore.

You'd be better off replacing the entire cover with a machined one than bolting a little plate to the bottom only.

I suspect the plate would just lever into the cover and break it, and in the process may destroy the threads in the case.


The racetorx full cover is the best option IMO
