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!
Blue Shock Shaft Guards RPM Shock Shaft Guards are a simple design, replacing 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 Black Shock Shaft Guards as well. The kit comes with replacement oversized shock rod ends, improving durability and consistency on the shock pivot ball. Additionally, we redesigned the top of the rod end so it is square. That square end keys the shock shaft guard for directional control. The front shield of the guard covers over 100 degrees of frontal exposure! RPM Shock Shaft Guards Dyeable White Shock Shaft Guards are zero friction protection devices, meaning the guard never touches the working elements of the shock.
RPM have released their new shock tower for the Associated SC10. The guys at RPM are happy to say:
When we designed our Front Shock Tower for the SC10, T4 & GT2, we had several goals in mind: Improve the strength and durability, improve crash survivability and help reduce damage to other vital components. The results are everything we had hoped they’d be! The T-shaped structure of our front shock tower provides some serious strength and rigidity while the top-secret blend of materials we use provides unmatched durability.
RPM Shock Towers for the SC10 & T4 are designed to improve the structure and durability of these awesome racing trucks. The I-beam shape found along the tops and sides of our shock tower provide some serious strength and rigidity while the chemical make up of our proprietary blend of nylons provides unmatched durability. The end result – a new shock tower design that will rigidly support the rear shocks while allowing the part to survive under extreme crash situations
New for the SC10, RPM have released this rear axle carrier using the larger outer bearings found in Associated’s #9730 axle carriers. The larger outer bearing supports the axle better, providing over 1/16′ more axle contact than two 3/16′ x 3/8′ standard bearings, for smoother, longer lasting performance. With the larger outer bearing and RPM proprietary materials, they found the perfect blend of strength and durability for a whole range of Associated 1/10th scale electric vehicles.
“Immediately after releasing our Adjustable Body Mounts for the Traxxas Slash 4×4 (#73932), RPM customers with the 2wd version of the Slash wanted adjustable, more durable body posts too. RPM Adjustable Body posts for the Traxxas Slash 2wd are here and are designed for durability and strength while still allowing you to change the body height on the truck.
Our unique body post mounting system allows the option of using the stock body height on the chassis. The body can also be lowered as much as 3/16” or raised as much as 3/8” simply by moving the posts up or down on the mounts.”
