With the successful launch of RPM Shock Shaft Guards for Traxxas Shocks, we knew we needed to make another version to work with Associated shocks as well. The wait is over!
RPM Shock Shaft Guards for Assoc. 1/10th scale shocks 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 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 are zero friction protection devices, meaning the guard never touches the working elements of the shock.
RPM Shock Shaft Guards are sold in sets of four, including four rod ends for the shocks. Nothing more is needed for installation. A short list of vehicles these guards work with include: SC10 2wd, T4, B4, GT2 and most older versions of these vehicles such as the T3, B3, T2, B2, RC10T and RC10. RPM Shock Shaft Guards are stock replacement items.
Tech Notes: RPM Shock Shaft Guards fit most Assoc. 1/10th scale shocks. However, they will not work with Assoc. SC10 4×4 or MGT shocks nor will they work with Associated Big Bore Shocks.
