Vanasche Motorsports has teamed up with Molecule Motosports, an expert in Thermo-Forming UHMW skid plates, to produce a proper plate to best all others.

We wanted to produce a plate that was extremely tough, durable, highly wear & impact resistant, and still offered the sound abatement qualities of plastic plates. Coming from an industrial background we knew that the only real option that would outperform all other plastics in an application such as this was UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene).

Vanasche Motorsports handled the precision machined components while Molecule cut and formed the UHMW plate. A partnership that will serve our customer base the best performance skid plates available.

    Nice product but hard time making it fit perfectly the mounting tabs don’t go in all the way into the OEM rubber groms

    Much better protection than stock

    Easy to install and much better protection than stock plate. Looking forward to seeing how it stands up over time. I am glad I chose this over metal aluminum plate, due to weight.
