This is a set of optional RPM Shock Shaft Guards, and are intended for use with Traxxas 1/10 scale vehicles, as well as the Durango DEX, DESC and DEST vehicles equipped with big bore shocks. Rocks, dirt and debris striking shock shafts lead to dents, dings and burrs, which in turn, leads to torn shock seals. Torn shock seals means leaky shocks and poor shock performance. RPM Shock Shaft Guards shield the shock shaft from those deteriorating elements, prolonging the life of the shock shaft, which improves the long-term performance of the suspension and in turn, prolongs the time between shock rebuilds!
RPM Shock Shaft Guards are a simple design, that replaces your stock shock spring cup with one that has a thin but tough shield rising up to the base of the shock body, completely blocking debris from striking the shock shaft. The back and sides are open, which prevents debris from building inside the guard as well. The kit includes replacement oversized shock rod ends, improving durability and consistency of the shock pivot ball. Additionally, RPM redesigned the top of the rod end so it is square. That square end keys into the shock shaft guard for directional control. The front shield of the guard covers over 100 degrees of frontal exposure! RPM Shock Shaft Guards are zero friction protection devices, meaning the guard never touches the working elements of the shock.
