Black Shock Shaft Guards for Traxxas & Durango 1/10th Scale 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
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 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 and are stock replacement items.

Tech Notes: RPM
Shock Shaft Guards fit all Traxxas 1/10th scale molded shocks as well
as Traxxas Big Bore shocks but will not fit the Traxxas Jato or GTR
shocks. They fit the T-Maxx and E-Maxx but will not work with RPM T/E-Maxx A-arms due to clearance limitations on the upper arm.
