RPM DEX8T & Kraton rear A-arms

Coming from RPM and made for the Team Durango DEX8T and Arrma Kraton line of off-road trucks are rear A-arms and mud guards. Starting with the A-arms, the parts are moulded from RPM’s renown nylon compound for rigidity while the design also eliminates slop as the parts reduce the amount of movement of the A-arm at the hinge pins, providing for better suspension response and more consistent suspension settings. The next improvement is the addition of a second shock mount hole further out on the arm, providing for a lower profile suspension set-up. This second shock mount allows the shocks to lay down further and lowers the ride height for a lower centre of gravity. This second shock mount matches the additional shock mount hole on RPM’s DEX8T/Arrma front A-arms. On top of this the arms are about ten percent lighter while also allowing to attach RPM’s optional mud guards. The arms are sold in pairs, they replace the stock Arrma AR330249 and stock Team Durango TD330707 parts and Team Durango’s stock mud guards are not compatible with these A-arms.

As for the mud guards, the parts were made exclusively for aboves A-arms and they prevent dirt and mud build-up in the rear suspension and driveline components. By keeping the debris kicked up by the front wheels off of the rear shocks, turnbuckles and driveshafts, the suspension and driveline components will last longer and run much smoother between cleaning. The mud Guards are extremely light, weighing in at only 8.5 grams each, and they sold in pairs.
